WATCH: Donald Trump Tells Hillary Clinton He’d Put Her in Jail

During the second presidential debate, Donald Trump told Hillary Clinton that he would put her in jail if he was in charge of the law. The comment came during a heated part of the debate over Clinton’s emails, with Trump discussing 33,000 emails that Clinton has not released and could be deleted. He told her that she would have been put in jail if she was anyone else for deleting emails and using a private server while Secretary of State.

“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Clinton said.

“Because you’d be in jail,” Trump said.

What preceeded the exchange was Trump telling Clinton that he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton if he becomes president.

“I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there have never been so many lies, so much deception, there has never been anything like it and we’re going to have a special prosecutor,” Trump said.

“There were 33,000 emails that you deleted and that you acid-washed,” Trump also told Clinton, adding that she “should be ashamed” for deleting emails.

Here’s the full transcript of the exchange, via Fortune.

TRUMP: And I’ll tell you what. I didn’t think I’d 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. There has never been anything like it, and we’re going to have a special prosecutor.

When I speak, I go out and speak, the people of this country are furious. In my opinion, the people that have been long-term workers at the FBI are furious. There has never been anything like this, where e-mails — and you get a subpoena, you get a subpoena, and after getting the subpoena, you delete 33,000 e-mails, and then you acid wash them or bleach them, as you would say, very expensive process.

So we’re going to get a special prosecutor, and we’re going to look into it, because you know what? People have been — their lives have been destroyed for doing one-fifth of what you’ve done. And it’s a disgrace. And honestly, you ought to be ashamed of yourself.

MARTHA RADDATZ: Secretary Clinton, I want to follow up on that.

RADDATZ: I’m going to let you talk about e-mails.

CLINTON: … because everything he just said is absolutely false, but I’m not surprised.

TRUMP: Oh, really?

CLINTON: In the first debate…

RADDATZ: And really, the audience needs to calm down here.

CLINTON: … I told people that it would be impossible to be fact-checking Donald all the time. I’d never get to talk about anything I want to do and how we’re going to really make lives better for people.

So, once again, go to HillaryClinton.com. We have literally Trump — you can fact check him in real time. Last time at the first debate, we had millions of people fact checking, so I expect we’ll have millions more fact checking, because, you know, it is — it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.

TRUMP: Because you’d be in jail.

  1. now; this is then moment when dt really started to really win, hellary really started to distress and began to lost the debate, her composure and demeanor. at the end, it was rather obv that she could barely hold together; that she was pretending, and putting a good poker face, but was still defeated. you see, this is the thing that worries hitlary more that anything else in the world. ie losing her power, dough and freedom. it’s not being caught, she gets caught lying or under some other investigation of crime every other day; it’s not impunily getting away with it that does. i’m certain she will even have to come clean some day for some plea bargain; but until that day… i’m also aware of the sup bad legal implications and msg that this may send; but it’s a sad day in ramerica, when we have to stood to that level, in order to get slightly a little hope of some obv well deserved justice…

  2. If Hillary wins then lets put trump in jail and confiscate his wealth (if any left) that he acquired illegally from Russian mafia. agreed!!
