Donald Trump's campaign said Tuesday that a new batch of Hillary Clinton's emails released by a conservative watchdog group suggest that the former secretary of state should not be "within 1,000 miles of public power."
"This latest finding is an unseemly, disturbing window into a corrupt office, and yet more evidence that Hillary Clinton has been lying from the beginning — and by any reasonable definition attempted to obstruct the investigation of the FBI," senior campaign adviser Stephen Miller said in a statement.
He added that Clinton "views public office as nothing more than a means to personal enrichment - and every dollar she takes comes at the expense of the public welfare."
The 296 pages of Clinton emails released by Judicial Watch, which obtained the records through a Freedom of Information lawsuit against the State Department, have raised further questions about whether Clinton ignored her husband's activities at the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as secretary of state even though they may have posed a conflict of interest.
In one set of emails, Doug Band, an attorney for the Clinton Foundation, told Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, two top aides to Clinton at the State Department, that it was "important to take care of" an individual whose name had been redacted from the document.
"Personnel has been sending him options," Abedin responded.
State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau defended the email exchanges on Tuesday in a statement to ABC News, saying "State Department officials are regularly in touch with a range of outside individuals and organizations including nonprofits, NGOs, think tanks, and others."
Clinton was dismissed of any criminal wrongdoing related to her private email practices by FBI Director James Comey in July — a decision Trump has used to advance his message that the "system is rigged."
