ROUGH CUT - SUBTITLED (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton found herself on the defensive at a debate in Miami on Wednesday (March 9), having to fend off questions about her email usage during her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. Univision News anchor Jorge Ramos, one of the debate's moderators, asked who gave Clinton permission to use a private email server. "There was no permission to be asked. It had been done by my predecessors. It was permitted. I didn't have to ask anyone," Clinton said. When asked if she would drop out in the event of an indictment, Clinton shot down the question immediately. "Oh for goodness, that's not going to happen. I'm not even going to answer that question," Clinton said. Both Clinton and her opponent, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, harshly criticized Trump, with Clinton accusing him of "trafficking in paranoia" and Sanders saying Trump would never be elected. "I think the American people are never going to elect a president who insults Mexicans, who insults Muslims, who insults women, who insults African-Americans," Sanders said. Earlier on Wednesday, Republican leaders opposed to Trump becoming the party's U.S. presidential candidate in the November election warned that the billionaire businessman could become unstoppable if he wins two crucial nominating contests next week.
