Trump On SCOTUS: I’ll Appoint People Who’d Look ‘Seriously’ At Clinton Emails

March 30, 2016 10:57 a.m.

Donald Trump has an interesting concept of what, exactly, Supreme Court justices do.

Asked about what kind of nominees he would appoint to the Supreme Court, Trump said he’d choose “people that would look very seriously” at Hillary Clinton’s “email disaster.”

The question came up Wednesday morning while Trump was phoning in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Host David Muir brought up concerns Clinton, the Democratic presidential frontrunner, raised about the kind of nominees Trump would select for America’s highest court and even attorney general, considering proposals like his plan to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

“How do you react?” Muir asked.

“Well I would probably appoint people that would look very seriously at her email disaster, because it’s a criminal activity, and I would appoint people that would look very seriously at that,” Trump said. “What she’s getting away with is absolutely murder. You talk about a case, a real case, that nothing seems to be happening. You can also poll people on that and see what happens with that because that is a real case and if she’s able to get away with that, you can get away with anything. “
