Ten minutes after Donald Trump heard the news that the FBI has reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, he shared the news with his supporters in Manchester, New Hampshire.
They already knew. As soon as he said the word “FBI,” the crowd erupted in applause and started chanting “lock her up!”
Trump noted all the people that have “suffered” at the expense of Clinton’s email abuse, such as Gen. David Petraeus, perhaps finally “justice will be done.”
“We must not let her take her email scheme into the Oval Office,” he said. “I have great respect for the fact the FBI and DOJ are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made.”
“This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understood.”
In the wake of this news, Trump wondered whether this election might not be as rigged as he thought.
“I think the FBI is going to right the ship, folks.”
He then offered a sort of apology to his fans, noting the rest of his speech is going to be “so boring.”
Update: The Trump campaign has released an official response.
