Hillary has a better understanding of India than Trump: Sant Singh Chatwal

New York [U.S.], Nov. 7 (ANI): Expressing happiness over presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton being vindicated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) clearing her in the email case, Indian American businessman Sant Singh Chatwal has said this could help achieve favorable ratings in states like Florida, Michigan.

"Everybody thought that she might be getting criminal charges, but now all the files have been closed and the probe has ended. Hillary is our friend for the last 25 years, and today, I guarantee that our dream of watching her become a president will soon come true," Chatwal told ANI.

Asserting that Hilary has a better understanding of India's rich and diverse culture, Chatwal, said under Hillary's leadership, India and U.S. ties would grow exponentially.

"India is a secular state and Hillary clearly understands this better than Donald Trump. She has gone there as a First Lady and is familiar with the problems we face. Trump has no knowledge, India is not all Hindu. Hillary understands that," Chatwal said.

"She has already helped India to get a nuclear power deal and she has also promised to solve the entire immigration problem once she becomes the president. Donald Trump wants to throw illegal immigrants out of America, but she is in our favor," he added.

FBI Director James Comey had informed lawmakers that the agency has not changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new emails.

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July," the CNN quoted Comey, as saying in a new letter written by him to congressional committee chairmen.

Last month, a bombshell was dropped by Comey on the presidential race as he had sent a letter to Congress saying that the FBI had discovered emails in a separate investigation that could be connected to the now closed probe of whether the classified information was mishandled by Clinton.

The news could help Clinton put to rest a controversy that has dogged her in the 2016 race's closing days.

The FBI's handling of the matter was assailed by Trump, but he did not directly address Comey's statement at a rally held in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

"You can't review 650,000 new emails in eight days. You can't do it, folks," Trump said, adding, " Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it's up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8."

Comey's handling of the review was blasted by Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

The new emails were found by the FBI as part of its separate investigation into a sexting incident by Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

While explaining how the conclusion was reached so quickly, law enforcement officials said that the thousands of new emails were mostly personal and duplicates of what had already been seen. (ANI)
