Trump Says Clinton Not Trustworthy, Clinton Fights Back

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump is ramping up his calls for an investigation into Hillary Clinton and insisting that she "has to go to jail." Trump has in recent weeks dramatically escalated his rhetoric into the FBI investigation into Clinton over the use of her private email server. The FBI director criticized Clinton but did not recommend criminal charges. Last summer when Republicans chanted "Lock her up!" at his rallies, Trump would respond: "Let's just win in November."  

But that changed Sunday when Trump said to Clinton across the debate stage that she'd be 'in jail' if he's ever president. On Wednesday he amped it up further by suggesting Clinton "has to go to jail." 

Meanwhile, a Clinton adviser is accusing Donald Trump of lying on the debate stage about having not groped or kissed women without consent. Communications director Jennifer Palmieri is responding to a New York Times story in which two women describe being touched inappropriately by Trump. Palmieri says the story "sadly fits everything we know about the way Donald Trump has treated women." She also says the story shows that the "disgusting behavior" Trump brags about in a video released last Friday "is more than just words."

Trump is heard on the 2005 tape saying his fame allows him to kiss and grab women. He denied during Sunday's debate that he'd ever done that without a woman's consent. However, a Florida newspaper is reporting that a woman says Trump groped her at his Mar-a-Lago estate 13 years ago, an allegation Trump's campaign says "lacks any merit or veracity."

The Palm Beach Post reports that 36-year-old Mindy McGillivray of Palm Springs, Florida, didn't report to authorities her 2003 encounter with Trump at the time but had shared the story with close friends and family. A man who had accompanied her to Mar-a-Lago that day, Ken Davidoff, tells the newspaper he vividly remembers McGillivray telling him that Trump had groped her.

McGillivray says she considered making a scene at the time but decided "to stay quiet." She says Trump's remarks at the second presidential debate, in which he denied groping women, changed her mind.

Trump's campaign is also claiming that the Islamic State group ISIS will "take over this country" if Hillary Clinton is elected president. Trump asserted that Islamic State fighters are "hoping and praying" that his Democratic nominee wins the White House. He then warned that the terror group, which he said controls a portion of the Middle East, would then "take over this country, they'll take over this part of the world."

Trump made the claim at a rally Wednesday in Ocala, Florida. Both Trump and Clinton have claimed that ISIS uses the other's rhetoric as a recruiting tool.
