Trump Claims Without Evidence That Clinton Emails ‘Got Hacked By China’

President Trump claimed without citing evidence that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton emails “got hacked by China,” warning that the Justice Department must act on the news or risk losing its credibility.

“Hillary Clinton’s Emails, many of which are Classified Information, got hacked by China,” the president said in the tweet early Wednesday.

“Next move better be by the FBI & DOJ or, after all of their other missteps (Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr, FISA, Dirty Dossier etc.), their credibility will be forever gone!” he added.

The president’s tweet follows a report from The Daily Caller that cited unnamed intelligence sources who said that Clinton’s private email server was compromised by the Chinese, a “fact” it claims was discovered in 2015.

China denied the report from the conservative news outlet in a statement to Reuters, and said it “firmly oppose[s]” cyberattacks and the theft of state secrets.

“This isn’t the first time we’ve heard similar kinds of allegations,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily news briefing.

“China is a staunch defender of cybersecurity. We firmly oppose and crack down on any forms of internet attacks and the stealing of secrets,” she added.
