Trump traveled to Hillary Clinton’s home state of Illinois Monday night to deliver a message about what she faces, if he were to become president.
The billionaire candidate, fresh off his appearance on Saturday Night Live, told the largest crowd ever gathered at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield, “If we had honest government, Hillary wouldn’t be allowed to run.” The over 10,000 gathered showed their approval with loud cheering and applause.
“People are in jail right now for doing five percent of what she did and the Democrats are not gonna to prosecute her, and it’s frankly a disgrace,” Trump said. “And you know it and so do I and so do these people right here—they know it.”

Trump offered the example of former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus as someone who was indicted and convicted for what appears to be a far lesser breach of his duty to secure classified information than the former secretary of state committed. “What [Hillary Clinton] did is so much worse,” Trump said
As reported by Western Journalism, Clinton placed classified material on an unsecured, private server, which could easily be hacked through the Internet. Additionally, she turned over her server to a Denver-based IT firm, whose employees did not have security clearances, and to her attorney, who also lacked a clearance. Poltico reported last week that the State Department has already found between 600-700 Clinton emails containing classified information.
“Hillary is running for a lot of reasons—one of ’em is because she wants to stay out of jail [emphasis added],” Trump stated.

The candidate pointed out that there is a six-year statute of limitations on Clinton’s alleged crimes, meaning there would still be time to prosecute her if Trump became president. “If I win, we’re going to look into that crime very, very seriously folks,” he promised.
