Donald Trump was unable to produce any evidence on Thursday when pressed over his claims regarding Hillary Clinton’s email server, Media Matters reported.
“She shouldn’t have had a personal server, okay?” Trump told NBC News anchor Lester Holt. “She shouldn’t have had it, it’s illegal. What she did is illegal. Now she might not be judged that way because we have a rigged system, but what she did is illegal. She shouldn’t have had a personal server.”
“But is there any evidence it was hacked other than routine phishing?” Holt asked.
“I think I read that, and I heard it,” Trump replied. “And somebody also gave me that information.”
“Where?” Holt asked.
“I will report back to you,” Trump said. “I will give it to you.”
“You said it with such certainty yesterday,” Holt observed, making reference to the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s speech attacking Clinton on Wednesday.
“I don’t know if certainty. Probably she was hacked,” Trump said. “You know what, you can be hacked and not know but it she probably was hacked. The fact is she should not have had a personal server.”
Trump also dodged when Holt pressed him on his accusation that Clinton was “sleeping” during the fatal attack in Benghazi, which Clinton refuted while speaking under oath.
“She might have been sleeping. What?” Trump said. “Because she put out a tweet, somebody said she put out a tweet, therefore she wasn’t sleeping? Nobody else could put out a tweet?”

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
