ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump attacked Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on Thursday as unfit for office because of ongoing FBI investigations into her conduct as Secretary of State. Trump made the comments at a rally in Jacksonville, Florida, a key swing state in the November election where some polls show Trump now leading. National polls show that Clinton's lead over Trump has narrowed since the re-emergence last week of an FBI investigation into Clinton's use of her private email server, announced in a letter by FBI director James Comey to Congress. "Here we go again with Clinton," said Trump. "You remember the impeachment and the problem? She is likely to be under investigation for many, many years, also likely to conclude in a criminal trial." Trump also cited a report on Fox News that an FBI probe into the Clinton Foundation was likely to result in an indictment of Clinton for carrying out a pay-for-play scheme. President Obama has been campaigning for Clinton in Florida, and Trump said the president should be "back in the office", working to bring back jobs and help veterans. He also said that because Clinton is under criminal investigation Obama may have a "conflict of interest" in campaigning for her.
