WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement responding to newly released emails showing Obama’s Justice Department coordinated with Hillary Clinton’s campaign on her email scandal:
“Emails showing the Department of Justice was giving Hillary Clinton’s campaign inside information about an ongoing investigation into her email server is deeply disturbing and raises even more questions about Bill Clinton’s tarmac meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Hillary Clinton jeopardized our national security and sensitive diplomatic efforts with the secret email server she set up to hide corruption at her State Department. Instead of facing consequences for her actions like others have, she’s been protected at every turn by the Obama Administration so she can continue the failed policies of the last eight years.
“President Obama promised in 2008 he would change Washington, and the one area where he appears to be succeeding is in further shaking Americans’ faith in their government. The more emails that come out, the more the American people see that the system is rigged in favor of political elites and against everyday Americans. How can we remain a vibrant democracy and a beacon to the world when the actions of our leaders are creating such a crisis of confidence in our institutions?”
