CLEVELAND — Republicans are breaking out into chants of “lock her up” as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tries to impugn Hillary Clinton’s character in his speech to the Republican National Convention.
Christie says as a former federal prosecutor, he wants to hold Clinton accountable for her actions. He says he’s laying out what he says are facts about her to “a jury of her peers.”
Guilty or not guilty – that’s what Christie is asking his audience for a verdict about Clinton on her leadership on the Islamic State group, China, and an al-Qaida-linked group in Nigeria.
Each time, delegates are responding with boisterous chants of “guilty.”
Republican activists repeatedly interrupted Christie with shouts of – “Lock her up.”
