Republican crowd jeers and mocks ‘guilty’ Hillary Clinton


AN ANGRY crowd at the Republican National Convention screamed “lock her up” and “guilty” as Hillary Clinton's career was brutally torn apart.


New Jersey Governor Chris Christie whipped the Republican National Convention into a frenzy as he staged a mock trial of the likely Democratic presidential candidate.

On Tuesday night it was officially confirmed .

“She fights for the wrong people, she never fights for us,” Governor Christie jeered.

He accused Mrs Clinton of lying “over and over again” to the American people.

“Over the last eight years we have seen this administration fail to hold her to account for her record as Secretary of State.

“We didn’t disqualify Hillary Clinton to be President of the United States – the facts of her life and her career disqualify her.

“It is time to come together and make sure that Donald Trump is the next president of the United States.”

Governor Christie’s speech was interrupted at one point by the capacity crowd in Cleveland yelling “lock her up, lock her up.

Mrs Clinton has faced intense criticism and scrutiny over a scandal involving her using a personal email server to handle classified communications while she was Secretary of State.

Mr Trump, the billionaire businessman who has never held public office before, was announced as the Republican candidate after last-ditch attempts to replace him on the ticket failed.

The hotelier's son, Donald Trump Jr, revealed New York delegates had given their support to his father, saying: “It is my honour to throw Donald Trump over the top with 89 delegates, congratulations Dad, we love you.”

Reacting to his victory, the 70-year-old tweeted: “Such a great honor to be the Republican Nominee for President of the United States. I will work hard and never let you down! AMERICA FIRST!"

Later a giant image of the nominee was beamed into the arena, with Mr Trump saying: “I am so proud to be your nominee for president of the United States.

“With your vote today, this stage of the presidential process has come to a close.

“Together we have received historic results, with the largest vote total in the history of the Republican party. This is a movement and we have to go all the way.”
