Sen. Ted Cruz said that if he is elected president, he would “absolutely” go after Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while secretary of state.
During a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida on Friday, Cruz told Sean Hannity it is about “principle” that Clinton is not held “above the law.”
Hannity asked Cruz, “Let’s say that the FBI makes a criminal referral to the Justice Department and it is ignored. And you become president, the statute of limitations had not passed — would you aggressively go after Hillary Clinton if the FBI believes she committed felonies?”
Cruz responded, “Absolutely yes, and there is a principle here that matters.”
“This country was founded on the principle that no one is above the law, and whether it is the Clintons or whether it is some in the Republican Party who think they are above the law, that the law doesn’t apply to them, that’s not how it works,” Cruz insisted.
Clinton is facing scrutiny from the FBI and Justice Department for operating a private email server and having classified information on it while she was secretary of state.
