"Can you imagine if I got a subpoena?" he said in Orlando.

"If I got a subpoena for emails, if I deleted one email, like a love note to Melania, it's the electric chair for Trump," he said. 

Trump, who has criticized Clinton over the issue going back to the 2016 presidential race, suggested the emails might still be found "somewhere deep in the State Department."

"We now have a great attorney general. Let’s see what happens," he said.

The Trump administration has defied several subpoenas of its own in recent weeks, including a demand for Trump's tax returns.
