"I know that they live in that world of fantasy and hope because they've got a mess on their hands on the Republican side," Clinton told NBC's "Today" on Friday.
"That is not going to happen. There is not even the remotest chance that is going to happen," Clinton continued. "But look, they've been after me, as I say, for 25 years. And they have said things about me repeatedly that have been proven to be not only false but kind of ridiculous."
Clinton has previously dismissed the possibility that the FBI's investigation into the private email server she used as secretary of State will lead to her being indicted, saying last month, "it's not going to happen."
Officials have signaled that the investigation into Clinton's email arrangement is ongoing, and FBI director James Comey this week pledged there is "no outside influence" into the investigation.

If you make something illegal, what are the consequences for that illegality?"
