Ramos Asks Hillary at Dem Debate: Will You Drop Out of the Race if You Get Indicted?

"I'm not even answering that question."

At the Democrat's debate last night, Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if she she would drop out of the race should she be indicted in the scandal surrounding her use of a private email server.

"If you get indicted, will you drop out?" he asked her.

"Oh, for goodness," she replied when Ramos pressed her to answer.

"It's not going to happen. I'm not even answering that question."

Ramos began questioning Clinton when he asked if she thought there were "one set of rules for" her and "a different set of rules for the rest of the State Department" referring to Clinton's directive to  her staff to use official government computers, while not doing so herself.

Ramos also asked her who gave her permission not to use her homebrewed email server instead of the State Department system.

"It wasn't the best choice, I made a mistake," Clinton said. "It was not prohibited. It was not in any way disallowed and, as I've said and as now has come out, my predecessors did the same thing and many other people in the government."

Clinton also reiterated her claim that she did not "send or receive" any email marked classified.

"What you're talking about is retroactive classification and the reason that happens is when somebody asks ... to make information public, I asked all my email to be made public, then all the rest of the government gets to weigh in. And some other parts of the government, we're not exactly sure who, has concluded that some of the emails should now retroactively be classified."

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
