Trump said Hillary Clinton 'would be going to trial' if James Comey hadn't 'saved her'


In an interview with Fox Business Channel aired Wednesday morning, President Trump said FBI Director James Comey was "very, very good to Hillary Clinton." Had he not done so, "she would be going to trial."

Trump said he still had confidence in Comey. But when host Maria Bartiromo asked if he wished he had asked Comey to step down when he took office, he responded, "No, it's not too late."  

When asked if he would push for Clinton to go to trial, Trump said he didn't want to talk about it.

Here's a clip of the wide-ranging interview.

Trump has repeatedly criticized Clinton since beating her in the presidential election, most recently resurrecting the fact that she got a debate question in advance.

He also referenced Comey's testimony before Congress that Clinton's use of a private email server did not merit criminal charges. Trump said "she was guilty of every [charge]." 

Comey has also been criticized by Clinton supporters for reopening the email investigation shortly before the election. 

Trump also said Susan Rice's request to unmask surveillance data were "horrible."

He also said the GOP was "doing very well" with health care despite a stinging defeat.

He touted the state of the economy since his presidency began.
