Trump: If Elected, I Would Have To ‘Look Into’ Prosecuting Clinton (VIDEO)

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.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
