Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he would pick a Supreme Court justice who would look seriously at Hillary Clinton’s email “disaster.”
During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” the GOP front-runner was asked about Clinton’s recent comment that it is “scary” to consider who Trump would nominate for the Supreme Court if he is elected president. She pointed to Trump’s past comments that he would ban Muslims from entering the U.S. in order to prevent terrorist attacks.
President Obama recently nominated Merrick Garland, the chief judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, to replace conservative justice Antonin Scalia, who died last month. But Senate Republicans have vowed not to vote on the nomination during Obama’s presidency. That means that the next president will likely nominate the next justice.
The real estate billionaire shot back at the question and at Clinton.
“I’d probably appoint people that would look very seriously at her email disaster because it’s a criminal activity,” Trump said.
Clinton is currently at the center of an FBI investigation over whether classified information was mishandled on her private email server.
“What she is getting away with is absolutely murder,” Trump continued. “Talk about a case, now that’s a real case.”
“That is a real case, and if she’s able to get away with that, you can get away with anything.”
