A raging, unhinged Donald Trump threatened Hillary Clinton with prison during a presidential debate unlike any other. But corporate media pundits said he won.
Donald Trump promised, when elected president, to establish a “special prosecutor” to investigate Hillary Clinton, because “there has never been so many lies, so much deception.”
Clinton responded that it is “awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
Trump then explicitly threatened to jail her if he wins.
“Because you’d be in jail,” he said.
The FBI investigated Clinton’s private email server and did not recommend bringing any criminal charges.
Trump’s threat to jail the leader of a would-be opposition party is disturbingly reminiscent of a collapsing, unstable democracy, where an executive can direct the criminal justice system to jail whom he sees fit.
