Donald Trump Threatens Clinton With Prison

Trump Tells Clinton: "You'd Be in Jail"

After avoiding questions about his recorded comments bragging about sexually assaulting women during the second presidential debate, Donald Trump brought up Hillary Clinton's email scandal. Trump went so far as to threaten imprisoning Clinton if he were president. Despite not being charged with a crime, Trump pledged that as president he would hire a "special prosecutor" to investigate her use of a private email server.

Equally as appalling, Trump said "she should be ashamed of herself," referring to the private email server. Addressing Trump's pledge to charge her over the emails, Clinton said, "It's just good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump isn't in charge of the laws in this country."

Trump interrupted her, as he did repeatedly this evening, and said, "Because you'd be in jail."

Clinton remained relatively calm throughout his barrage of insults and efforts to derail the conversation about the issues. "Let's get to the issues that people care about tonight," she said. "Let's get to their question."
