ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump campaigns in Sioux City, Iowa on Sunday (November 6), where he slams Democrat Hillary Clinton saying, Clinton as president "would create an unprecedented constitutional crisis." "We could very well have a sitting president under felony indictment and ultimately a criminal trial. Just today we learned Hillary Clinton was sending highly classified information through her maid... who therefore had total access to this information, completely jeopardizing the national security of the United States," said Trump. Republicans have accused Clinton of breaking the law while corresponding through a private email server as secretary of state. In July, FBI Director James Comey called Clinton "extremely careless" in her handling of classified information by email, but Obama's Justice Department accepted his recommendation not to bring criminal charges. The controversy flared up again on Oct. 28 when Comey told U.S. lawmakers the FBI was investigating a new trove of emails as part of its probe, but said their significance was unclear. Trump also told the crowd in Iowa that "on June 16 of last year, I went from being a true insider to perhaps the ultimate outsider ever." He says that as president, he will not let the special interests influence government. Clinton holds a five-point lead over Trump in the latest Washington Post-ABC Tracking Poll released early on Sunday. In the Post-ABC poll released on Friday, Clinton led Trump by 47 percent to 44 percent. Clinton had an advantage in affirmative support, the poll said, with 55 percent of backers saying they are mainly supporting her, compared with 43 percent of Trump voters. More Trump voters say they "mainly oppose Clinton."
