Kentucky’s Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul blasted Hillary Clinton in a scathing commentary calling for the Democratic presidential nominee to be indicted and locked up.
“Every voter in the country needs to know that the Clintons are in it for themselves,” Paul said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor”.
“They’re in it to make money and they will make hundreds of millions of dollars if she gets in the White House because they will sell themselves to the highest bidder,” he said.
Paul said an indictment of the former secretary of state “would be a good idea, followed by a prison sentence.”
“I think it’s very unfair that Hillary Clinton wasn’t prosecuted,” he said, referring to charges that were not brought against Clinton in a federal investigation of her private emails during her tenure at the State Department.
“Her dishonesty should preclude her from really being considered for commander in chief,” Paul said.
He further noted his “personal theory” that FBI Director James Comey actually did want to indict Clinton and regrets not doing so.
Clinton’s actions during her time as secretary of state “showed that her convenience was more important than national security,” Paul said, adding that it was “inexcusable.”
“The conflict of interest just goes on and on,” he said, “and I think it’s indictable. She should be in prison for it.”
