Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas believes President-elect Donald Trump is right to consider prosecuting charges against Hillary Clinton for all her various scandals.

On the “Jamie Weinstein” show, the Senator outlined what he thought about Trump’s election, including what he should focus on in his first 100 days as President.

The senator was the first to mention Trump prosecuting Clinton. However, in an interview on “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Donald Trump was asked if he would consider prosecuting Clinton for all of her crimes against United States citizens.

The Daily Caller reports:

“I’ll tell you what I’m going to do, I’m going to think about it,” Trump said before going on to say he was most focused on his policy agenda.

Senator Cotton seemed to agree with Trump’s focus during his own interview.

The Daily Caller reports:

“So there is an ongoing investigation according to published reports into the Clinton Foundation,” he continued. “That investigation probably needs to continue and it needs to be settled based on the law and the facts, not based on, you know, who won or who lost an election. That’s a basic tenet of our country.

The most important social factor in considering whether or not to prosecute former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is whether political officials or upper class members of society are above the law.

Donald Trump ran on the campaign of “draining the swamp” in Washington, meaning he wishes to end the corrupting forces in politics today.

Prosecuting Hillary Clinton would be a bold move in helping end corruption, and President-elect Trump has the means to do so.

Senator Cotton believes no one should be held above the law, regardless of their political influence.

Hillary Clinton, in particular, is known for her manipulation in the political world as well as accusations of bribery.

The Daily Caller reports:

“The facts and the law have to take investigators to their proper conclusion,” Cotton said. “I obviously don’t know all the details of what happened in the investigation of the email server. I don’t know all the details of what’s happening with the Clinton Foundation. But in the same way that we don’t punish our political opponents after an election in this country, we also don’t exempt politicians or other high public officials from the rule of law in this country.”

Though Cotton has spoken to President-elect Trump since Election Day, he claims they did not discuss the matter of prosecuting Hillary Clinton.

Furthermore, when asked if he would hypothetically consider a position in Donald Trump’s administration, Cotton declined.

The Daily Caller reports:

I haven’t been asked. I haven’t pursued,” he said.

Regardless of whoever fills Trump’s administration, the reassuring fact is there are many individuals who stand behind the very real possibility of prosecuting Hillary Clinton for her crimes against the people.

From bribery, to treason, to committing perjury, there is no doubt the loser of the Presidential election lost for very good reasons – and nor should she be kept out of jail.

What are your thoughts? Should Hillary Clinton be prosecuted for her crimes? Or is her political life over?
