Marco Rubio once joked that if Hillary were to become president, she’d be the first president to pardon herself. That humorous possibility can’t be comforting to Hillary however, who runs the risk of losing the election this November to the Republican nominee.
If Donald Trump were to win the presidency, he’s made it clear he wouldn’t be content with just winning the presidency from Hillary. As the Washington Examiner reports: Donald Trump said Monday night that he believes Hillary Clinton will likely get away with her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, but said that as president, it’s only fair that he’d look to prosecute Clinton.
Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked Trump in front of a live Nevada audience if his attorney general would go after Clinton should an investigation find she broke the law while serving in the Obama administration.
“You have no choice,” Trump replied. “In fairness, you have to look into that.”
“She seems to be guilty,” he said. “But you know what, I wouldn’t even say that.”
“But certainly, it has to be looked at,” Trump added. “If a Republican wins, if I’m winning, certainly you will look at that as being fair to anyone else. So unfair to the people that have been prosecuted over the years for doing much less than she did.”
Clinton may be cozying up to Obama now to prevent herself from being indicted, but Trump’s threat isn’t going away.
