Clinton was scheduled to speak during the convention, according to Fox News. Special Counsel John Durham released a report days prior alleging that lawyers from a firm enlisted by the Clinton campaign, referred to as “Law Firm-1” in the indictment, paid a tech firm that “exploited” access to private servers that were allegedly kept at Trump Tower and later at the White House.
Former President Trump and Republican Florida Sen. Marko Rubio accused Clinton of using such alleged info to try to link the Trump campaign to Russia.
“Trump & Fox are desperately spinning up a fake scandal to distract from his real ones,” Clinton responded Wednesday. “So it’s a day that ends in Y.” (RELATED: John Brennan Says There Was ‘No Spying’ On Trump’s Campaign)
