Watch Hillary Clinton blow up when asked if she’ll drop out of the race if indicted
- Hillary Clinton proclaimed on tonight’s Democratic debate stage that the American people shouldn’t be worried about her email scandal
- She and Bernie Sanders tangled over each other’s immigration records with the senator suggesting Clinton was deceiving people about his record
- In an intensely personal moment Clinton admitted that she struggles to connect with voters in the same way as Obama and her husband, a former two-term president
- The candidates were facing off in their second debate of the week, this time in Miami, Florida, ahead of Tuesday’s primary in the state
- Directly asked if he believes Clinton is saying one thing in public and another thing in private about Wall Street, Sanders said of her speeches, ‘That is exactly what releasing the transcripts will tell us’
- Neither candidate would explicitly call Donald Trump a racist – but they were critical of his comments about Mexicans and other minorities
