Florida reaction to FBI announcement it's reviewing Clinton emails



Here's the story, and the reaction:

Marco Rubio: "Since the FBI announced they were re-opening an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of her private server, Patrick Murphy will need to let Floridians know if he still trusts Hillary Clinton 100 percent, as he has said in the past. We now have a presidential candidate ten days from Election Day under investigation by the FBI, that’s unprecedented. I said all along that these were less than ideal choices before us, and that’s why we need a Senator willing to stand up to the next president no matter who it is, even if they’re from your own party.”

Dennis Ross: “I am pleased the FBI is reopening its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server use. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton put the American people in harm’s way and recklessly gambled with our national security when she mishandled sensitive and secret government information by using multiple unprotected, unofficial email devices and servers. We cannot set the dangerous precedent that the politically elite and the Obama Administration are immune from abiding by the laws of our land. Every day I hear from my constituents, desperately asking why Hillary Clinton is allowed off-the-hook when average citizens would never dream of getting away with such atrocities, and they are completely right. No matter how you try to word it, and no matter how you try to manipulate the situation, there is no excuse Hillary Clinton can give that justifies her actions. The rule of law is the rule of law—for everyone.”
