Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton will do "anything Obama wants" because she "doesn't want to go to jail" over her ongoing email scandal, which the Obama Justice Department is now investigating.
“Anything Obama wants, she’s going forward with because you know why? She doesn’t want to go to jail,” Trump told an audience in San Jose, California, on Thursday, ahead of the state's Republican and Democratic presidential primaries on Tuesday.

Trump was responding to a foreign policy speech Clinton made earlier on Thursday in which she blasted Trump for his "very thin skin" and "unfit" temperament to be president.
“Remember I said I’m a counter-puncher? I am. After what she said about me today in her phony speech — that was a phony speech. That was a Donald Trump hit job. I will say this: Hillary Clinton has to go to jail," Trump said.
The billionaire businessman and presumptive GOP nominee continued by saying, “The only reason she’s behaving like this, and the only reason she’s been dragged so far left, believe me, is she doesn’t want to go to jail over the emails."
“She’s guilty as hell. The fact that they even allow her to participate in this race is a disgrace to the United States. It’s a disgrace to our nation," Trump added.
