Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday blamed his rival Hillary Clinton for the email scandal that has hit the Democratic party resulting in resignation of head of the Democratic National Committee.
“Hillary was involved in the e-mail scandal because she is the only one with judgement so bad that such a thing could have happened!” Trump tweeted, a day after the DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced her resignation.
Schultz resigned following release of DNC emails by Wikileaks which shows her taking side in the primaries. She favoured Clinton against Senator Bernie Sanders of Virginia. As head of the party, Schultz is supposed to be neutral.
During the primaries, Sanders campaign had alleged that the party was not staying neutral. Clinton, the former secretary of state, has emerged as the winner of the Democratic presidential primaries defeating Senator Sanders.
“If Bernie Sanders, after seeing the just released e-mails, continues to look exhausted and done, then his legacy will never be the same,” Trump said in another tweet. The allegations have been denied by the Clinton campaign, but Trump insisted that she was behind this.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton knew everything that her ‘servant’ was doing at the DNC – they just got caught, that’s all! They laughed at Bernie,” Trump alleged. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is looking into the hacking of email account of DNC.
“The new joke in town is that Russia leaked the disastrous DNC e-mails, which should never have been written (stupid), because Putin likes me,” Trump said in another tweet. “The Democrats are in a total meltdown but the biased media will say how great they are doing! E-mails say the rigged system is alive & well!” he said.
