One the biggest applause lines Donald Trump received during the debates was when he declared in no uncertain terms that he would pursue and indictment of Hillary Clinton should he win the presidency.
But now, magnanimity rules the day. According to chief adviser Kellyanne Conway, President Trump will not being pursuing charges against Hillary Clinton.
Here’s more from IJR:
Former Trump Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway told “Morning Joe” Tuesday morning that Trump will not pursue criminal investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server. Trump feels Clinton has “been through enough,” she said.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski read the breaking news before it was announced that Conway was the source.
“A source with direct knowledge of Donald Trump’s thinking tells ”Morning Joe“ that the president-elect will not pursue any investigations into Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server, and also for the questions surrounding the Clinton Foundation.”
Conway later told “Morning Joe”:
“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.”
