As the possibility looms, Giuliani appeared on The O’Reilly Factor Wednesday night, saying that Hillary Clinton could face prosecution under a Trump Administration.

“There’s one tradition in America, right? Election is over. We forget about it. There is another tradition in America which is ‘equal justice under the law,’” Giuliani said. “And it would depend on how bad the violations are.”

He also disputed  claims  that any further investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and prosecution would be “payback.”

Giuliani's appearance came exactly a month after Trump famously said during a town hall debate that if he were in charge, Clinton would "be in jail."

Clinton was exonerated by the FBI multiple times after an investigation into emails used on her private server.

On the Today show Thursday morning, Christie said: “Politics are over, the people have spoken. It's time to move to uniting the country.”
