Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort dismissed the FBI’s crime stats last night because of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, CNN reports.
CNN’s Jake Tapper brought up what Republicans have claimed all week about crime, telling Manafort, “Crime rates have been going down for decades.”
Manafort told him, “I’m not sure what statistics you’re talking about.”
Tapper explained it’s official stats from the FBI.
Manafort said, “Well, the FBI’s certainly suspect these days after what they just did with Hillary Clinton.”
