Trump threatens to jail Clinton if he wins election
(CNN) - Donald Trump on Sunday night issued a remarkable threat against Hillary Clinton, telling the Democratic presidential nominee he would seek to imprison her if he was elected next month.
"If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your (missing email) situation," Trump said, "because there has never been so many lies, so much deception."
Trump's threat -- which he has made before on the campaign trail -- is extraordinary even by the standard of the vitriolic 2016 campaign.
Clinton responded first by calling Trump's comments about her emails false, then said, "It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country."
Trump, as if continuing her sentence, added: "Because you'd be in jail."
After the debate, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta dismissed the remark, telling CNN's Brianna Keilar that Trump would never get the chance to follow through. "Fortunately, he's not in charge of the laws of the country and never will be," Podesta said. - Read More
