Hillary Clinton probably can’t forgive herself for losing to Donald Trump, especially seeing what a piece of it Trump has turned out to be…..
She gives the view that despite the possible harm to the Office of the Presidency….
Trump should be charged with crimes if it is deserved ….
What they’re saying: Asked by host Dana Bash how the Justice Department should weigh the possible consequences of indicting a former president against potential evidence that Trump committed a crime, Clinton acknowledged that “it’s a really hard call.”
- “I do think the rule of law — holding people accountable — is central to our nation,” she added.
- “Both as Secretary of State and as a private citizen, I have answered every question I’ve ever been asked. I’ve testified for 11 hours, I’ve been involved in anything that was asked of me, to try to answer any kind of issue. I think that’s the way the system is supposed to work,” she said.
“I really believe that at the end of the day, no one is above the law and no one should be escaping accountability, if indeed the facts and the evidence point to them having done something that anyone else in our country would be investigated for and maybe even charged.”

Clinton noted that “we do have some special exceptions for someone actually in the office” but underscored that “[Trump] is not the president.”
- “So I do think that just like any American, if there is evidence, that evidence be pursued.”
- “If the evidence proves, or seems to show, that there are charges that should be leveled, then I think the rule of law should apply to anyone.”
