Lock Her Up?? Rudy Giuliani Says Donald Trump's Presidential Administration May Still Prosecute Hillary Clinton Over Private Email Server

This is getting to the point of ridiculousness, and is unbecoming of any presidential administration's staffers and advisers. And yet we're talking about Rudy Giuliani here, so…

The former mayor of New York City, who now serves as a vice chairman to Donald Trump's presidential transition team, said on Sunday morning that the potential to prosecute Hillary Clinton over her private email server is a possibility come next year.

Speaking to ABC's George Stephanopoulos on This Week, Giuliani was asked if it would be a good idea to go forward with a prosecution of Clinton.

In response, Rudy proceeded to tongue tie himself in a weird word salad, but came away with this:

"That's a tough one, George, it really is. As a lawyer, I hate to use the ‘on the one hand, but the other,' but on the one hand, you don't want to disrupt the nation with what might look like a vindictive prosecution, even though it might not be. On the other hand, you want equal justice under the law, and if she has violated the law ― you know, the FBI never completed the [Clinton] Foundation investigation. That's, as far as I know, that's still an ongoing investigation. They completed the email investigation, but not the Foundation investigation."

Uh… OK.

That's only half of it, though — Giuliani continued by being more definitive about the possibility of a prosecution:

"Exactly what you do with that, I guess the next attorney general is going to have to figure that out. I don't know if that will be me or not, but the next attorney general would have to figure that out. And I'm going to make a guess, not a definitive statement, I would think if you had to make a decision like that, you'd give it ― you'd give that to an independent counsel. You wouldn't make it as the appointee of the new president. We have a lot of precedence for that; we've done that in the past. Or maybe that you want to sort of put that behind you. I don't know, that's a tough decision."

It's not a tough decision for Trump himself, who has recently said — to his credit — that he has far bigger issues to take care of than prosecuting Clinton.

Even other Republican leaders don't seem to keen on actually prosecuting Hillary, like Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who said this morning on FOX News Sunday that nowhere on his agenda is he looking to prosecute Clinton, and added:

"I leave that portion to law enforcement."

And yet Giuliani — who might become Attorney General, and would thus be the one to decide whether to prosecute Clinton — refuses to give it up.

Scary. And considering the FBI has already investigated and moved on multiple times, also highly irresponsible.

Somehow this isn't much of a surprise, though, considering the GOP base loved to chant "Lock her up!" during the last 18 months of The Donald's run to the White House.
