Will Hillary Clinton be prosecuted for her crimes? Not if Donald Trump has anything to say about it:
President-elect Donald Trump will not appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton, a senior aide says.
Speaking to MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” transition advisor and former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Trump would not appoint a special prosecutor or pursue criminal charges against the former Democratic presidential nominee.
“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,” she said, indicating that Trump is looking to strike a conciliatory tone ahead of his inauguration.She expects that the combative language that invigorated his presidential campaign will not characterize his presidency. “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 aren’t among them,” she said.
This is interesting. As Trump will soon learn, the president is not supposed to take part in investigations, which are handled by the attorney general, and congressman Chaffetz has promised to continue his investigation of Hillary.
In other words, stay tuned…
