During one of the more ‘dramatic’ exchanges of Sunday’s presidential debate, Donald Trump looked Hillary Clinton straight in the eye and told her that if he wins the presidency, his attorney general will appoint a special prosecutor to “look into your situation.”
He also told her she’d “be in jail.”

Setting aside the various illegal aspects of Trump’s threat, it was a riveting moment.
“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, there has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor.
Because there has never been so many lies, so much deception — there has never been anything like it.”
Hillary dismissed the threat — as condescendingly as possible.
“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
Trump fired back without missing a beat: “Because you’d be in jail.”
The Donald was locked in like a laser on Hillary all night.
In July, the Justice Department chose not to indict Hillary over the email scandal, following FBI Directory James Comey’s decision against recommending criminal charges.
Trump reminded Hillary that hubby Bill met privately with Attorney General Loretta Lynch days before DOJ’s decision — a meeting Lynch later said was “out of courtesy.”
