Mike Pence says a Donald Trump administration will appoint a special prosecutor to "get to the bottom" of any improprieties at the Clinton Foundation – "and hold them accountable" – echoing a provocative promise of the GOP nominee.
In a campaign speech in Raleigh, N.C., on Wednesday, the vice presidential nominee hit on themes that Trump has been hammering: Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state, and the alleged influence of Foundation donors on the State Department, Politico reports.
"When we make Donald Trump the next president of the United States of America, we will once again uphold the principle that no one is above the law," the Indiana governor told a crowd that chanted "traitor," "lock her up" and "treason" during Pence's remarks, Politico reported.
"We will appoint a special prosecutor who will get to the bottom of the Clinton Foundation and hold them accountable."
Trump came under fire during the second presidential debate in St. Louis last Sunday when he vowed to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton – and then snapped at Clinton "you'd be in jail" when she responded he would never be president.
But on Wednesday, Trump doubled down.
"She deleted the emails,” he said in Florida, Politico reported. "She has to go to jail."
