Trump capitalises on Democratic infighting to bash 'Crooked Hillary' over a litany of scandals

President Donald Trump weighed in on the latest round of infighting within the Democratic National Convention to again bash Hillary Clinton over a laundry list of past scandals.

“New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary” Trump tweeted in one missive from his Friday morning tweet storm, referring to former DNC leader Donna Brazile.

Brazile, in an excerpt from her upcoming book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House” published in Politico, outlined how the Clinton campaign effectively hijacked and controlled the Democratic party.

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren later concurred that Clinton had indeed established an effective monopoly on the party.

“What about the deleted Emails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus… People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!” Trump tweeted.

Though many of Trump’s charges against Clinton have been debunked or discredited, or in the case of her email scandal, declared by the FBI as “extremely careless” but not criminal, the president has again capitalised on Democrats’ infighting.

During the campaign, Trump often accused Clinton of rigging the DNC against her main challenger, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
