During a Monday interview with Sean Hannity, Donald Trump said he would look into prosecuting Hillary Clinton if he were elected president.

Hannity noted to Trump that if he were elected president, he would have an attorney general and that “the statute of limitations will not have passed,” referring to Clinton.

“Well look, you have no choice. We have to solve all sorts of problems, and fairness is you have to look into that,” Trump said in response. “The emails have come out, and it’s — she seems to be guilty. But you know what? I wouldn’t even say that. But certainly it has to be looked at if a Republican wins, if I’m winning, certainly you will look at that as being fair to everyone else.”

“So unfair to the people that have been prosecuted over the years for doing much less than she did. So she’s being protected,” Trump continued.

Hannity then asked Trump, “So you think she’s running for her own survival?”

“I think she’s running a very important race, the most important race of her life,” Trump replied. “And not just because it’s president. I mean, she’s running a very important race.”

Hannity then said that “Barack Obama would pardon her before he leaves.”
