Trump Compares Clinton Email Scandal to Watergate

In an interview with The Hollywood reporter published on Wednesday, Donald Trump stepped up his attacks on Hillary Clinton by commenting on her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. He said the entire ordeal "looks like Watergate on steroids, frankly." Clinton has come under increased pressure regarding her private email use. It was only last week that Clinton finally turned her email server over to the Justice Department. Federal Officials have also already flagged some emails for further review. Bob Woodward, who with Carl Bernstein exposed the Watergate scandal, said "in a way it reminds me of the Nixon tapes."

In his interview, Trump also discussed his opposition to same-sex marriage, but that it was a settled issue by stating "Some people have hopes of passing amendments, but it's not going to happen. Congress can't pass simple things, let alone that. So anybody that's making that an issue is doing it for political reasons. The Supreme Court ruled on it." He continued that he went to gay wedding of Broadway theater owner Jordan Roth.

When asked if he would be interested in become vice president, he responded "I just don't think it would be good for them, I don't think it would be good for me. It's a great position, a very important position. I just think in that position, perhaps they could do something different than me. And that's not to minimalize the position."
