Donald Trump said he won't allow the use of private emails or servers if he wins

WATCH  | Donald Trump said that if he's elected president, he would have tougher enforcement of rules that government employees are required to follow when using personal email accounts, mobile phones or non-government servers for sensitive government business. 

'We have the rules'

"We have the rules, we're supposed to follow the rules," he said. "The rules are very strict and very severe until Hillary Clinton came along.  She broke every rule in the book, and it looks like now nothing's going to happen." 

The Federal Records Act requires that government employees cannot destroy or remove relevant records and that agencies hold on to official communications.

FBI Director James Comey defended his agency's decision not to recommend criminal charges, saying "there really wasn't a prosecutable case."

Gmail for official business

On Friday, the FBI released 189 pages from 46 interviews it conducted concerning its investigation into Clinton's private email server. 

One of the findings was that Wendy Sherman, who served as Deputy Secretary of State under Clinton and was the Obama administration's top negotiator on the Iran nuclear deal, told the FBI she used a Gmail account to conduct government business.


In addition, the documents show that an official whose name and sex are redacted said that during the Iran negotiations, there was a hacking attempt.

Other people went to jail for what she's done and it's, really, nobody's ever seen like what's been happening with our country.

The Republican presidential candidate spoke to Circa last week at a rally in Chester Township, Pennsylvania.

Clinton has said the decision to use a private email system was a mistake. In July,  Comey said Clinton and her staff had been "extremely careless" in handling classified government secrets, but that the "case itself was not a cliffhanger."

Republicans have criticized her for putting national security at risk, but there's no evidence Clinton's home email server was compromised.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell had a private email server setup, and advised incoming Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2009 to do likewise.

Several Clinton aides, including former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, lawyer Heather Samuelson, then-State Department Information Resources Director John Bentel and former agency IT specialist Bryan Pagliano  granted narrowly tailored immunity deals two years ago.

Mills and Samuelson were told they would not face prosecution for any information that was found on the official work laptops they gave voluntarily to the FBI to help with the investigation.

Comey will testify before the House Judiciary Committee this Wednesday about his agency's handling of the email probe.

Hillary Clinton's campaign said the leak of the immunity deals was politically motivated.
