Trump says a Republican would be in jail

Clinton has said she did nothing illegal

Washington CNN  — 

Donald Trump said Saturday that he doesn’t know why Hillary Clinton is even in the race for the White House.

“Honestly, she shouldn’t be allowed to run,” Trump said to cheers at a large campaign rally in Norcross, Georgia. “If that were a Republican that did what she did with the emails they would have been in jail 12 months ago. Clink!”

He added, “It’s a very unfair system.”

The leading Republican candidate has repeatedly called the former Secretary of State’s email situation in which she used a private server to send emails “a criminal problem.”

Clinton has repeatedly said she never knowingly sent or received classified materials on her email account and has done nothing illegal.

Clinton turned over to the State department last month her work-related emails from her private server and kept emails she deemed personal. The email server has since been turned over to the FBI and the agency is looking into whether any classified materials were mishandled.
