WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump is ramping up his calls for an investigation into Hillary Clinton and insisting that she "has to go to jail."

Trump has in recent weeks dramatically escalated his rhetoric into the FBI investigation into Clinton over the use of her private email server. The FBI director criticized Clinton but did not recommend criminal charges.
  
Last summer when Republicans chanted "Lock her up!" at his rallies, Trump would respond: "Let's just win in November."
  
But that changed Sunday when Trump said to Clinton across the debate stage that she'd be `in jail' if he's ever president. On Wednesday he amped it up further by suggesting Clinton "has to go to jail."
