Trump: If Hillary Were Republican, ‘She’d Already Be in Jail’


trumpIf Hillary Clinton were a Republican, she would “already be in jail” over the issues surrounding her use of a private email server, presidential candidate Donald Trump said Thursday, and it will probably take a Republican president to be elected to make her face charges.

“Had there not been a [Gen. David] Petraeus, and you know, the catastrophic events that happened around him, it would be a different story,” Trump, who is at the top of most major national polls, told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program. “If this were a Republican, somebody would already be indicted.”

Clinton’s decision to use a private server, said Trump, is “very serious” and “probably criminal. I think almost you could say, almost certainly criminal. And it looks to me like she’s not going to be prosecuted. And that’s only because the prosecutors are Democrats.”

Trump said that Petraeus, the former CIA director who was fined and sentenced for sharing classified documents with his biographer, has seen his life destroyed, “but it’s like nothing seems to be happening with her, so the world is watching.”

He also compared Clinton’s case to that of former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell, who was sentenced two years in prison for taking money and gifts in exchange for promoting a dietary supplement while he was in office.

“He didn’t violate a state law,” said Trump. “The Justice Department decides to go after him and puts him in jail for five, six, seven, eight years.”

If a Republican becomes president, Trump said, “hopefully” Clinton will face charges, but then “you have a statute of limitations of five or six years. Hillary might have to win this election because if a Republican wins, I would imagine that their attorney general and their people are going to be their various prosecutors, because it goes on for years after the election.”

So, as a result, Clinton “might be fighting for her life in more ways than one,” said Trump, as “what she did is probably criminal. I think almost you could say it’s almost certainly criminal.”

  1. Trump should be in jail because of his unsavory business practices. He manipulates the bankruptcy laws to extort concessions from his lenders, forcing them to become unwilling equity partners.

    Regarding the insecure email server, Trump does not understand the law. Petaeus deliberately shared classified information that he knew was classified with someone inappropriate. There is no evidence that Clinton did this. We do know, however, that Jeb Bush shared classified information with people using his insecure smartphone while he was Governor of Florida. But Bush probably did not understand that the information he shared was classified.

  2. It is really a shame, Charlie, that you can be in such denial about Hillary. Then again, you have Obama as a top five all time President. You obviously are so engrossed in your world of the liberal academic intelligentsia, that you are not able to have a rational opinion on matters political. Spread your wings a little bit, man. I used to think like you and your kind. Baruch Hashem I opened my eyes and stopped trying to deny the truth, as uncomfortable as it is.
