Trump calls Hillary Clinton ‘guilty as hell’ in Twitter rant

In a series of tweets shooting down ongoing reports of Russia’s possible involvement in the 2016 presidential election, President-elect Donald J. Trump slammed his now defeated opponent, Hillary Clinton, calling her “guilty as hell.”

“What are Hillary Clinton’s people complaining about with respect to the F.B.I. Based on the information they had she should never have been allowed to run – guilty as hell,” Trump tweeted early Friday morning.

“They were VERY nice to her. She lost because she campaigned in the wrong states – no enthusiasm!”

Trump’s jab at Clinton comes more than two months after Trump won the election and appears to be a critique against Democrats who have blamed Clinton’s astonishing loss on FBI Director James Comey’s decision to reopen the agency’s investigation into her private email server just days before Election Day.

The president-elect’s Twitter rant, however, started out as an angry tirade against reports of an unverified claim that Russian operatives compiled damning information about Trump.

“It now turns out that the phony allegations against me were put together by my political opponents and a failed spy afraid of being sued,” he tweeted. “Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans – FAKE NEWS! Russia says nothing exists.”
