Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said his agency was working as fast as it could to release Hillary Clintonâ€™s missing emails after President Trump lashed his top diplomat for not making them public.
In an interview on Fox Newsâ€™ â€œThe Daily Briefing,â€ the secretary said some of his predecessorâ€™s correspondence could also be made public before the presidential election just 25 days away.
â€œWeâ€™re going to get there. Weâ€™re going to get this information out so the American people can see it,â€ Pompeo said while criticizing Clinton for using a private email server while she was secretary of state in the Obama administration.
â€œWeâ€™re doing it as fast as we can. I certainly think thereâ€™ll be more to see before the election,â€ he went on.
In an hour-long interview with Fox Business on Thursday morning, Trump rebuked Pompeo and Attorney General Bill Barr over the fact that Clinton had not faced consequences for both her use of a private email server and involvement in the origins of the 2016 investigation into his campaignâ€™s ties with Russia.
â€œThey are in the State Department but Mike Pompeo has been unable to get them out, which is very sad,â€ Trump told anchor Maria Bartiromo.
â€œActually Iâ€™m not happy with him for that reason,â€ he added.
Earlier Friday, it emerged that Barr had been warning Republicans that a review of the FBIâ€™s Russia probe would not be finalized until after the Nov. 3 election.
