For the first time in America’s political history a presidential candidate has threatened to retroactively investigate their opponent and send him — or her — to prison.
In the midst of the Sunday night presidential debate in St. Louis, Missouri, Republican nominee Donald Trump told the Democrats’ heir apparent Hillary Clinton that if Americans elect he’s voted into the White House in November, One of his first official acts will be to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the 30,000 emails Hillary deleted from her unauthorized Internet server.
He also threatened her with jail for her putting national secrets and American lives at risk.
“The thing you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 emails you deleted and that you acid washed and then the two boxes that were taken from an office and are now missing,” Trump said
“And I’ll tell you what, I wasn’t going to say it and I hate to say it, but if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception, there has never been anything like it and we’re going to have a special prosecutor.”
There are many who believe the Trump-picked attorney general will be Congressman Trey Gowdy
“When I go out and speak, the people of this country are furious,” Trump said. “[You’re afraid of me becoming President because] you’ll be in jail.”
Just 90-minutes prior to facing Hillary Clinton in the second debate, Trump held a press briefing with some of the women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault and rape. Afterward, the women — including Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick — sat inside the debate hall to watch. Bill Clinton was also sitting in the hall.
When Trump’s 2005 vulgar comments were discussed during question and answer part of the debate — and after Hillary Clinton attacked him on the issue — Trump reminded voters that he’s said inappropriate things but Bill Clinton actually sexually abused women.
