Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Friday called on the FBI to release new emails that forced it to reopen its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private emails.
Pence made the call during a campaign event in Bensalem, Pa., and speculated that Clinton "may have been a whole lot more than extremely careless" in her handling of classified information.
"The big breaking news today — you may not have heard about it standing in line folks — is that now we just learned that Hillary Clinton may have been a whole lot more than extremely careless when it came to handling classified information," Pence said. "The director of the FBI, James Comey, this afternoon, just sent a letter to the Congress reopening the investigation against Hillary Clinton and her private email server."
The crowd responded by cheering and chanting "lock her up," as has become commonplace at Donald Trump rallies since the Republican National Convention.
"Let me say, let me say regarding this very serious announcement by the FBI: I know I speak on behalf of my running mate when I say we commend the FBI for having the courage to reopen this case, because no one is above the law," Pence said.
"But let me say this. Men and women of Pennsylvania, let me say this: With just 11 days left before a national election, an election of such enormous consequence in the life of this nation, we should heed the words of Abraham Lincoln, who said give the people the facts and the republic will be saved," Pence continued.
"We call on the FBI to immediately release all the emails pertinent to their reopened investigation. The American people have a right to know. And they have a right to know before election day."
According to reports, the newly discovered emails did not come from Clinton's private server, but rather from another device FBI officials seized belonging to Huma Abedin, a top Clinton aide, and her husband Anthony Weiner.
