"Today, we learned the Department of Justice fed information to the Clinton campaign about the e-mail investigation, so that the campaign could be prepared to cover up her crimes," Trump, the Republican nominee, said at a rally in Panama City, Fla., according to a transcript of his remarks emailed out by his campaign. 

"This is collusion and corruption of the highest order, and is one more reason why I will ask my Attorney General to appoint a special prosecutor. We have to investigate the investigation," he added.

Trump also proceeded to blast Clinton for being a "vessel for a corrupt global establishment that is raiding our country."

"These Wikileaks emails confirm what those of us here today have known all along: Hillary Clinton is the vessel for a corrupt global establishment that is raiding our country and surrendering our sovereignty. This criminal government cartel doesn’t recognize borders, but believes in global governance, unlimited immigration, and rule by corporations," he said. 

During the presidential debate on Sunday, Trump went on the offensive against Clinton, stating that she "would be in jail" if he was in charge of the country.
