Kirsters Baish| This past Thursday evening, President Donald Trump was in Indiana, speaking at rally when he issued an ominous warning to his former opponent/failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that made “lock her up” look inviting.
The President was speaking on Clinton’s crimes and how sickening it is that she has not seen justice for her corrupt actions when he stated, “Look at what she is getting away with, but let’s see if she gets away with it.”

Fox News reported that during the rally, the President seemed to be delivering some kind of ultimatum to the DOJ and the FBI. He explained that they must “start doing their job” or he will be forced to “get involved.”
Trump’s comments came during an Indiana rally in which was help in support of GOP Senate candidate Mike Braun. Braun is currently working to defeat incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly.
“All I can say is, our Justice Department and our FBI, at the top of each because inside they have incredible people, but our Justice Department and our FBI have to start doing their job and doing it right and doing it now because people are angry. What’s happening is a disgrace. And at some point, I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn’t straighten out properly, I want them to do their job, I will get involved and I’ll get in there if I have to,” the President stated.
Then he stated that it is “disgraceful” and that “the whole world is watching.”
He continued, “And the whole world gets it and the whole world understands exactly what’s going on.”
The President has been having repeated issues with Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He has called on Sessions to investigate Clinton, among others. So far, we have seen no action.
Trump has stated that he will “get involved” in the past. Earlier in August, he said that he “may have to get involved” in Judicial Watch’s effort to get their hands on the text messages sent by terminated FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in relation to his own wife’s 2015 campaign for the Virginia state senate.
Earlier in the day on Thursday, Trump tweeted that he was on his way to Indiana “for a big crowd rally” to support Braun, who he called “a very successful businessman.”
Trump’s tweet read, “He is strong on Crime & Borders, the 2nd Amendment, and loves our Military & Vets. Will be a big night!”
While introducing Braun to the stage on Thursday evening, Trump called him a “special man” who he felt would “be a truly great senator.”
Fox News reports:
Both Braun and Trump criticized the Democratic opponent for his voting record on tax reform and on the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare.
“Joe Donnelly voted against tax reform. As a congressman he voted for ObamaCare. And then when he could’ve had the deciding vote, he voted against repealing it. He voted for the Iranian deal and thank goodness we undid that,” Braun said.
Donnelly’s campaign pushed back on Trump’s critique, citing a study from Congressional Quarterly that shows he voted with Trump 62 percent of the time in 2017 and noting that the candidate had 22 proposals signed into law by Trump.
“He’s always willing to work with any president who has a good idea to help Hoosiers, but he’s never been, and never will be a rubber stamp for ideas from any administration that are wrong for Indiana,” said campaign manager Peter Hanscom.
