Donald Trump has conveyed that it is not a part of his new Administration to investigate Crooked Hillary.
I don’t know if President-Elect Trump has learned to play politics, backing out on the “Lock Her Up” or is keeping a Clinton/Obama investigation close to the vest to prevent or avoid Dem Party obstructionism.
I pray in one fashion or another that Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are at least investigated thoroughly to let the American people know that a President Trump truly plans to drain the swamp of Federal Government Corruption.
Trump WON’T pursue case against Clinton
November 22, 2016
Hillary broke the law. And while I understand that this may very well be an olive branch to the Democrats, Trump is in for a rude awakening. There will be no quid pro quo. The Democrats will not play ball with him or give him an easier time or stop the violent rioting or calm their base. Like jihadis, they see kindness and peace offerings as signs of weakness.
I am sure many Trump supporters whose chant, “lock her up!,” is now a rallying cry for government corruption and lawlessness, will be hugely disappointed.
Trump should allow these investigations to continue and whatever will be will be. The good news is that Jason Chaffetz, the Utah congressman finishing his first term leading the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has vowed to continue to investigate Clinton’s email server.
TRUMP WON’T PURSUE CASE AGAINST CLINTON, CONWAY SAYS
The Washington Post, November 22, 2016:
President-elect Donald Trump has decided that he won’t seek criminal investigations related to former rival Hillary Clinton’s private email server or her family foundation, his campaign manager said Tuesday
Trump’s apparent decison [sic], conveyed by Kellyanne Conway in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,’’ is a change from his campaign rhetoric, in which he issued incendiary calls for a special prosecutor to reopen the FBI’s closed investigation of Clinton’s use of a private server while secretary of state and had also urged investigations of allegations of corruption at the Clinton Foundation. He nicknamed the Democratic nominee “Crooked Hillary” and encouraged chants of “Lock her up!” at his rallies.
Trump’s decision to pursue or not pursue a criminal investigation from the Oval Office would be an extraordinary break with political and legal protocol, which holds that the attorney general and FBI make decisions on whether to conduct investigations and file charges, free of pressure from the president.
Conway said Trump sees things differently. “I think when the president-elect, who’s also the head of your party, tells you before he’s even inaugurated that he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone and content” to fellow Republicans, she said. “Look, I think he’s thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the President of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign are not among them,” she added.
Trump has not spoken directly about his apparent change of heart but hinted at it in a post-election interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes.’’
‘YOU’D BE IN JAIL’: TRUMP SWIPES AT CLINTON DURING DEBATE
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump responded Hillary Clinton saying that he shouldn’t be in charge of the law in the U.S. saying, “You’d be in jail.” The comment was met with rousing applause from the audience. (The Washington Post)
“I’m going to think about it,” he said. “I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them. They’re, they’re good people.’’
Trump’s about-face drew immediate criticism from legal experts, who said it threatens the integrity of the justice system.
“The president-elect has demonstrated his complete lack of understanding of how the government makes these kinds of decisions,” said Stephen I. Vladeck, a law professor at the University of Texas at Austin. “The attorney general answers to the president, but the department is supposed to be independent, especially when it comes to prosecutorial decisions. Any president, especially our next president, needs to both understand and respect that – or else they risk politicizing criminal prosecutions in ways that can be damaging.”
The president-elect’s new position also stands in contrast with leading members of his party. Jason Chaffetz, the Utah congressman finishing his first term leading the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has vowed to continue to investigate Clinton’s email server.
“It would be totally remiss of us to dismiss [the email investigation] because she’s not going to be president,” Chaffetz said after the election, referring to the defeated Democratic nominee.
While FBI director James Comey has repeatedly said the bureau did not find enough evidence to recommend prosecuting Clinton over the email issue, he questioned her judgement in using a private server, calling it “reckless.’’
