"If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. There has never been anything like it, and we're going to have a special prosecutor," he said.
Given the chance to respond, Clinton did not address Trump's vow directly but said, "Everything he just said is absolutely false. But I'm not surprised."
She questioned her opponent's temperament, saying, "It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country."
Trump shot back, "Because you'd be in jail."
