Lewandowski on 'Delayed' Clinton Email Report: 'The American People Need Some Answers'
Corey Lewandowski said that President Trump is right in questioning "delays" in the Justice Department inspector general’s probe of the Hillary Clinton email case.
Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to question why the final report has not yet been released and whether it's "being changed and made weaker."
What is taking so long with the Inspector General’s Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey. Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker! There are so many horrible things to tell, the public has the right to know. Transparency!

"Where are the criminal referrals for people who are breaking the law?" Lewandowski asked on "Outnumbered Overtime."
Lewandowski said it's clear that there were some "bad apples" in leadership roles at the FBI, pointing to former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by the president last year, and Comey's former deputy Andrew McCabe, who was also fired and has been accused of lying under oath.
"Anybody else would have had charges brought against them in a far quicker period of time," he said. "And I think the American people need some answers."

He said that Trump demands results and swift, definitive action, and he's right to call out the "numerous delays" in the report on the department and FBI's handling of the probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server.
"The wheels of the government in this particular instance are moving so slowly that it starts to call into question if there are sets of rules for the elites and different sets of rules for the average Americans," Lewandowski said.
