ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump held a campaign rally during which he told his supporters that he was going to win the State of Nevada on election day on November 8th. Trump commented on the letter sent by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey, to Republican lawmakers. In the letter Comey said an investigation into his rival Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's, emails is not complete. "I have a feeling they've just found a lot of them," Trump said in reference to emails deleted by Clinton staffers. "I have a feeling Huma! They just found a lot of them we never thought we were going to say thank you to Anthony Wiener," he said. Sources close to the investigation said on Friday (October 28) the latest emails were discovered as part of a separate probe into Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Weiner, a former Democratic U.S. congressman from New York, is the target of an FBI investigation into illicit text messages he is alleged to have sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. Trump went on to accuse Clinton of offering U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch a bribe. "It was publicly reported that sources close to Hillary Clinton said, and she actually I think said it to the papers, that she was thinking of reappointing Attorney General Lynch. She was thinking, she said it, I mean it was a statement she made and effectively I guess you'd call that a bribe wouldn't you call that a bribe," Trump said. "This is what we mean when we say the system is rigged it's rigged," Trump added. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump pounded away at the new FBI development, devoting a large part of a campaign speech in Las Vegas, to attacking Clinton and arguing that she is not to be trusted with the presidency. Clinton had opened up a significant lead over Trump in public opinion polls before the letter surfaced. The most recent polls had shown the lead narrowing slightly.
