Scrapy - unexpected suffix "%0A" in links

I'm scraping a site to download email addresses from websites.
I have a simple Scrapy crawler, which takes a .txt file with domains and then scrape them to find email addresses.

Unfortunately Scrapy is adding suffix "%0A" in links. You can see it on log file.

Here is my code:

class EmailsearcherSpider(scrapy.Spider):
name = 'emailsearcher'
allowed_domains = []
start_urls = []
unique_data = set()

def __init__(self):
for line in open('/home/*****/domains',
'r').readlines():
self.allowed_domains.append(line)
self.start_urls.append('http://{}'.format(line))


def parse(self, response):
emails = response.xpath('//body').re('([a-zA-Z0-9_.+-]+@[a-zA-Z0-9-]+\.[a-zA-Z0-9-.]+)')
for email in emails:
print(email)
print('\n')
if email and (email not in self.unique_data):
self.unique_data.add(email)
yield {'emails': email}


domains.txt:

link4.pl/kontakt
danone.pl/Kontakt
axadirect.pl/kontakt/dane-axa-direct.html
andrzejtucholski.pl/kontakt
premier.gov.pl/kontakt.html


Here are logs from console:

I found the right solution. I had to use rstrip function.

 self.start_urls.append('http://{}'.format(line.rstrip()))
