ST. LOUIS (CBSNewYork) — Donald Trump told Hillary Clinton during a very tense exchange at Sunday night’s presidential debate that she would be in jail if he was president.

It happened when the topic of Clinton’s missing 33,000 emails as secretary of state was discussed.


“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Clinton said.

Trump responded, “Because you’d be in jail.”

Before that exchange, Trump said he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton if he became president.

“If I win, I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception, there has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor,” Trump said.

This is the second of three presidential debates.

    If we had a judicial system that wasn’t corrupted, she’d be there now!!!! So would Bill. But our justice system has been corrupted mightily and Hillary’s road was paved by corrupt politics from the WH, DOJ, FBI, State Dept, IRS. Pretty sad, isn’t it?

    Mr Tic Tac apparently was upset by Mr Trump, but at least it was not illegal, unlike so much of the Clinton activity over many years.

    How sad that these 2 are what we have to choose between in 4 weeks. I would not do CPR (either solo or 2 person) on either of them. Many will be voting for who they perceive to be the lesser evil. In the past I have voted to honor the brave men & women who gave the last full measure to fulfill their mission of duty, honor, country. There is no honor in either of the major party candidates. I have a duty to vote.

      And Kate, which one of these candidates do you think would stand by these men you talk about????

    2. SallyMJ says:

      Hillary despises the military. As reported by staff, military, and Secret Service. Keep that in mind.

    Hillary Clinton broke the law

    We the People would be in jail if we had did what Hillary did

    Why should Hillary Clinton get a pass?
