ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says the inspector general's report on Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server is not good news for the Democratic presidential candidate. Speaking at a rally in Anaheim, California, Trump said the report is "not good." He went on to say he wants to run against Clinton in the general election. The inspector general's report concluded Hillary Clinton broke government rules by using a private email server without approval for her work as U.S. secretary of state. The long-awaited report by the State Department inspector general was the first official audit of the controversial arrangement to be made public so far. It was also critical of department record-keeping practices before Clinton's tenure. The report's highly critical findings undermined her earlier defense of the arrangement and immediately fueled Republican attacks on Clinton, the Democratic front-runner in an already acrimonious presidential race. The report will add to Democratic anxieties about public perceptions of Clinton, whom a majority of voters say is dishonest, according to multiple polls. The report concluded that Clinton would not have been allowed to use the server in her home had she asked the department officials in charge of information security. The report said that staff who later raised concerns were told to keep quiet. Several suspected hacking attempts in 2011 were never reported to department information security officials, in breach of department rules, it said.
