If Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton wins the US presidential election next Tuesday it would set off a constitutional crisis that would paralyze the workings of government as she faces criminal investigations, Republican Donald Trump said at a rally in Wisconsin.

“If she [Clinton] were to be elected, it would create an unprecedented crisis and the work of government would grind to an unbelievably inglorious halt,” Trump said on Tuesday.

 

Clinton is likely to face years of investigation from the Federal Bureau of Investigation following the latest revelations from WikiLeaks and the discovery of a cache of 650,000 of her emails and looks likely to eventually have to face criminal prosecution, Trump warned.

 

“She is likely to be under investigation for many years likely to conclude in a…criminal trial,” he said.

 

Trump also noted media reports earlier the same day that the FBI had also started inquiries probing into the activities of several of her closest lieutenants and most trusted staffers.
