Trump Will Not Try To Prosecute Hillary Clinton

After months of threatening to put Hillary Clinton in jail, Donald Trump has decided to focus on other matters as he prepares to assume the presidency.

“It’s just not something that I feel very strongly about,” Trump told The New York Times on Tuesday, according to Politico. When asked whether his supporters will be angry that he is not planning to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton, the president-elect replied: “I don’t think they will be disappointed. I think I will explain it that we in many ways will save our country.” He noted that pursuing legal action against the former secretary of state “would be very, very divisive for the country.”

Trump remarked that he has no desire to “hurt the Clintons,” adding: “I’m not looking to go back and go through this.” Among those who are certain to be unhappy about his reversal on the issue are his supporters who chanted “lock her up!” at campaign rallies.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton had urged Trump to “affirm the rule of law and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Clinton scandals.” Fitton said that failing to do so would be “a betrayal of his promise to the American people to ‘drain the swamp’ of out-of-control corruption in Washington, D.C.”

Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said Clinton “still has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest or trustworthy, but if Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that’s a good thing.”
