President Trump tweeted out a response to Clinton via a Rush Limbaugh soundbite. In the Fox News clip he shared, Limbaugh says Clinton is “the last person” who should be mandating what happens to Trump, considering she has been repeatedly “rejected” by the American people.

At the TIME 100 summit in New York Tuesday afternoon, Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump is lucky he’s president. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on the Russia investigation concluded that Trump at no point colluded to win the 2016 election, but it did leave open some questions about his behavior and whether it amounted to obstruction of justice.
Clinton intoned that anyone else would not have gotten off so scot-free.
“I think there is enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted.” @HillaryClinton on whether Donald Trump obstructed justice or not at the #TIME100 Summit https://t.co/LesjLJH44j pic.twitter.com/rRg2MnEmA9

Trump’s former rival added that if he did commit serious crimes, then “it is the obligation of Congress to put forward the articles of impeachment.”
Donald Trump Jr. was one of the first people to remind Clinton of her own indiscretions when she was secretary of state. Contrary to protocol, Clinton used a private server for some official State Department matters. She says she never sent nor received classified information, but fact checks revealed how misleading that statement was. Clinton had also deleted 33,000 emails on her server before the investigation began, claiming those messages were all personal in nature and not work-related. Former FBI director James Comey accused her of “extremely careless” behavior at the conclusion of a long investigation, but did not pursue criminal charges against her.
Would “any other person” have been so lucky?
Trump Jr. shared some of her unfortunate laundry list, before dubbing her the worst presidential candidate “in history.”
It’s her total lack of self awareness, after bleachbit and hammering iPhones under subpoena (obstruction), why Hillary was the worst candidate in the history of the Presidency. Well one of many reasons.
I’m so thankful she’s not leading this country… and never will. https://t.co/RGPELT0e7H
