In the first half other presidential debate, if you can even call those advertisements debates, GOP nominee Donald Trump declared that, if elected, he will have a special prosecutor look into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal because there are “so many lies, so much deception.”
“I didn’t think I was going to say this, but I’m going to say it, and I hate to say it, but if I win, I am 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,” Trump said to his opponent’s face. “There has never been anything like it. We’re going to have a special prosecutor.”
Clinton had called on Trump to apologize for previous statements.
“He owes the president an apology, he owes the country an apology, and I want him to take responsibility for his actions and his words,” Clinton said.
He also went after her email scandal.
“But when you talk about apology, I think the one you should really be apologizing for and the thing that you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 emails that you deleted and you acid washed, and then the two boxes of emails and other things last week that were taken from an office and are now missing,” Trump said.
Mr. Trump said he heard from people across the country who were angry when Clinton’s emails were destroyed after being subpoenaed.
“So we’re going to get a special prosecutor and we’re going to look into it, because you know what?” Trump asked. “People have been destroyed, their lives have been destroyed for doing one-fifth of what you have done. It’s a disgrace, and honestly, you should be ashamed of yourself.”
Indeed, some justice does need to be rendered against Mrs. Clinton. However, I’ve heard this kind of thing before. I’m really not expecting anything out of it. While it makes for great rhetoric in the WWE DC politics, the fact of the matter is that Mr. Trump has known Mrs. Clinton for a long time. Is he just now starting to understand what a wicked woman she is or has he known it all along and is just pandering to voters? This is the same man that supported the Clintons… before he was against them. In my opinion, everyone supporting Hillary is against America, but those supporting Mr. Trump have been hoodwinked.
