RNC Speaker Mukasey Once Called Trump Presidency Dangerous – NBCNews.com
Former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Tuesday told a crowd at the Republican National Convention that Hillary Clinton’s use of an email server and alleged mishandling of classified material disqualifies her to be president.
Mukasey did not mention Trump in a brief speech, but six months ago in an anti-Trump edition of the conservative National Review, Mukasey wrote “a Donald Trump presidency would imperil our national security.”
Mukasey in the January edition singled out Trump’s plan to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the United States and his suggestion that the military should kill the families of terrorists.
“Trump’s proposal would assure the enmity of all Muslims, including those whose support we need if we are to prevail,” Mukasey wrote in the magazine.
Tuesday, however, Mukasey attacked Clinton for allegedly exposing state secrets through use of her server, and accused her of lying about it.
“Hillary Clinton is asking the people of this country, the people of the United States, to make her the first president in history to take the Constitutional oath of office after already having violated it,” Mukasey said.
