Donald Trump adviser muses about waterboarding Hillary Clinton

Not even torture could drive Hillary Clinton to tell the truth, according to a senior adviser to Donald Trump's campaign. After discussing on CNN Friday how problematic Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state was, Trump adviser Barry Bennett came to a conclusion about Clinton's alleged dishonesty that visibly shocked CNN's Kate Bolduan.

"You couldn't get the truth from Hillary Clinton if you waterboarded her," Bennett said. "What?" a clearly surprised Bolduan responded. "You couldn't get the truth out of her with a waterboard," Bennett repeated.

Bennett's musings about waterboarding followed Trump's threat at a rally Thursday to prosecute Clinton over her email server if he won the presidency. Trump has also promised to "bring back waterboarding and a hell of a lot worse" if elected.
