Would a GOP president take legal action against Hillary?

“When I’m president of the United States, neither she nor any of these other people are going to be above the law,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said on Fox News’s “Hannity” in January. “People are going to be held accountable if they broke the laws of this country.”

“There will be a full accounting of all this when I’m president and we have a real Justice Department with a real attorney general.”
Legal experts question the validity of the threats, which would be nearly unprecedented and likely seen as a political retribution.

“The Justice Department isn’t supposed to be used for political purposes,” one former high-ranking department official told The Hill.

“This isn’t a banana republic, that ‘If we prevail then the other side better watch out,’ ” added the official, who was granted anonymity in order to speak freely. “That’s not what we do.”
