Trump: If Elected, I'll 'Look Into' Prosecuting Clinton

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he'd prosecute Hillary Clinton if elected President.

During a live event in Nevada on Feb. 22, Trump was asked by Hannity whether or not his attorney general would prosecute Clinton if an investigation found that she broke the law, the Washington Examiner reports. Hannity was referring to the fact that Clinton used a private email server during her time at Secretary of State.

"You have no choice," Trump responded, according to the Washington Examiner. "In fairness, you have to look into that. She seems to be guilty. But you know what, I wouldn't even say that."

Trump was adamant that an investigation into Clinton's alleged wrongdoings needed to happen.

"If a Republican wins, if I'm winning, certainly you will look at that as being fair to anyone else," he said. "So unfair to the people that have been prosecuted over the years for doing much less than she did."

Trump also recently predicted, in a Feb. 21 interview with CNN, that he'd win the nomination and face Clinton in a general election. The two, he said, would bring "the greatest voter turnout in history."

"Frankly, if she gets indicted, that's the only way she's going to be stopped," Trump said. "I think it's going to be Hillary and myself."
