March 9, 2016: Donald Trump says he would push for an indictment of Clinton.

Trump, the frontrunner in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, is asked if he would pursue a criminal indictment of Clinton if Attorney General Loretta Lynch does not. Trump replies, “You have to.”

Politico comments, “Trump’s answer conflicts with 40 years of precedent. His suggestion that he would seek an indictment flies in the face of the longstanding practice of limiting White House involvement in the prosecutorial decisions made by an attorney general. (Politico, 3/9/2016)
