On the campaign trail, Donald Trump likes to claim that Hillary Clinton may not even be the Democratic presidential candidate because she’ll be in jail.

The far-fetched argument is that Clinton will be indicted and found guilty for setting up a private email server while she was Secretary of State.

At the CNN/Univision debate Wednesday, moderator Jorge Ramos asked Clinton if she was indicted if she would drop out of the race.

Clinton quickly rebuffed the question.


“Oh for goodness— that is not going to happen,” she said. “I’m not even going to answer that question.”

Clinton was grilled about her private email account early into the primetime debate, responding to questions about who gave her permission to create and used a private email server during her time in office.

She admitted that her failure to use a government account was a “mistake” but held that it was not prohibited during her time in office.
