Hey now, it could be worse: If found guilty of treason, Hillary could be executed.

There is no way to sugarcoat this: At Sunday night’s presidential debate, Donald Trump threatened to throw Hillary Clinton in jail if he wins the presidency. This — threatening to jail one’s political opponents — is how democratic norms die.

The exchange happened during a discussion of the controversy over Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Trump began by decrying Clinton’s conduct — which, according to the FBI, was quite bad but not illegal. He then proposed appointing a special prosecutor to investigate her, and warned Clinton that, if he were president now, “you’d be in jail”:

TRUMP: I'll tell you what. I didn't think I'd say this, and I'm going to say it, and hate to say it: If I win, I'm going to instruct the attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there's never been so many lies, so much deception … A very expensive process, so we're going to get a special prosecutor because people have been, their lives have been destroyed for doing one-fifth of what you've done. And it's a disgrace, and honestly, you ought to be ashamed.

This is so far beyond normal that it’s hard to even know where to start.
In democracies, we respect people’s rights to disagree with each other. When one candidate wins a presidential election, the loser returns to private life or another government position. In some cases, former rivals become close friends. George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, who defeated Bush in the 1992 election, travel together and have spent decades jointly raising money to aid the victims of natural disasters.
They don’t get sent to jail, because we believe that political disagreement should be legal.
Donald Trump doesn’t seem to care about all that.

Hillary believes Trump can win. He will expose her and Bill's crimes if he does. Therefore, in the Clinton view he must die. Look for an attempt on Trump's life, probably by a "radical, crazy person", claiming he had to die for his comments about women, or his stand on the borders, or whatever they think they can fake up. But make no mistake, any hit or attempted hit on Trump will be cleared through the Clintons and will be financed by George Soros.

Joe, I predicted months ago that if all else failed, the Clintons or their Leftist allies would make a serious attempt on Trump's life....the "Lone Wolf" assassin Patsy would fit the bill...A "Lone Wolf" financed and put in place by the Ruling Class.

Of course, like the assassination of Julius Caesar by the Roman Establishment in 44 B.C. - the American Establishment may get a civil war that ends with a Caesar Augustus....Don't forget that Trump has a potential political in Eric - who would wave his father's bloody shirt and find an army of supporters.
