Try again...
Thanks to Nixon the POTUS can not appoint a SP. It is now up to Congress.

CLINTON: "You know it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in this country.”

TRUMP: “Because you’d be in jail.”

Clinton said Trump's claims about her emails were untrue, adding it's a good thing that someone with his temperament is not in charge of the law in U.S.

"Because you'd be in jail," Trump replied.

You mean the IRS didn't target conservative groups?

The distortion and deception coming from the liberal media to get Hillary elected is very dangerous. Even more dangerous is if Hillary wins she will continue doing things against the law knowing the media will continue to distort and mislead the American people to protect her.

Do we want a president who can do as they please and no one will hold her accountable?

This is very dangerous for the American people.

Ah, the reliable "Trump Never Said That" response.

Never in the history of American Presidential politics have we ever had a candidate go into this kind of chilling territory. But then again, a lot of very negative records are being broken by Trump as of late.

Look, the Hillary email thing has been through like a year+ of investigation. FBI digging through it. Attorney General digging through it. Everything that could be scrutinized has been scrutinized. The evidence was looked at by independent entities in accordance with due process. Hillary handled her emails dismally and recklessly, and it calls her judgment into question. But nothing that can warrant the burden of criminal culpability has come of it. You can argue otherwise, but you're just letting your partisan zeal mask conjecture for fact.

For Trump to suggest now that he would convene a forum to reverse the process that's been carried out and jail Clinton is illegal and recklessly anti-Constitutional. Do people even understand what a massively dangerous precedent this sets?

And make no mistake: if you argue in support of this kind of behavior by a leader of ANY political persuasion and can't see you way through your partisan haze to recognize how dangerous this is, then you're anti-American. You're anti-Constitution. And you're not worthy of the heritage of this nation. End of story.
Are you spreading false propaganda or do you have poor comprehension.

Is bad of a candidate that Trump is (and so is Hillary), Trump said nothing of the sort.


It is clear that Trump is saying that Hillary blatantly violated laws that have put other people in prison and that she would be in prison if she weren't a political elite.

Trump is NOT saying that he will lock up those that disagree, but rather enforce the laws on political elites in this case that has sent others to prison for doing less.

Yep...

Hillary supporters constantly need to lie, because there isn't anything to really get excited about Hillary over.
