If Elected, Trump May Not Be Able to Fulfill Big Debate Promise

If Elected, Trump May Not Be Able to Fulfill Big Debate PromiseFederal law may prevent Donald Trump, if elected, from fulfilling a big promise he made at last night’s presidential debate, according to former U.S. Justice Department chiefs from both political parties. “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into [Hillary Clinton],” the Republican nominee vowed, citing her use of a private email server as secretary of state. But former attorneys general under Republican and Democratic administrations said presidents don’t get to decide on the appointment of a special prosecutor.
