"If I’m gonna believe — and I don’t have any reason not to believe — that she gave classified information on hundreds if not thousands of emails on a public server after what happened to Gen. Petraeus, she should be buried under a jail somewhere," he said in a Tuesday interview on Kansas City AM 610, a sports radio station, as first reported by The Big Lead.

Clinton is facing an FBI probe over her use of a private email server while secretary of State. Questions over the controversy have dogged her presidential bid, with Republican critics saying she endangered national security. Clinton, though, has denied any wrongdoing.

Some critics have likened her case to that of former CIA Director David Petraeus, who was convicted for giving classified information to his biographer, Paula Broadwell, with whom he was having an affair. Petraeus eventually struck a plea deal, getting probation and paying a fine.

Schilling hammered Clinton in the interview.

“If she’s allowed to get to the general election before she’s in prison, I’ll be stunned and upset,” he said. “Because I think she’s shown her true colors all along the way, and I’ll ask you this: Do you see her being anything even remotely different than what we’ve had? 

“I don’t care what her titles are, she's done nothing. She’s done absolutely nothing to further the success of the middle class," he continued. "She jumps on the backs of people who she wants to be dependent on government. She needs these people to be dependent on her.”
