If this is true, a major controversy could be brewing.
The Campaign was a long one and many allegations and accusations flew.
Morning Joe is reporting today that president-elect Donald Trump will not be pursuing any criminal investigations into his former political rival Hillary Clinton.
The report, first announced by Mika Brzezinski, comes just a week after a 60 Minutes interview where Trump indicated that he may not launch a full investigation into the Democratic nominee. “I’m gonna think about it,” he said at the time to Leslie Stahl. “I don’t wanna hurt them. They’re good people,” he continued of the Clintons.
Tuesday’s report from Brzezinski said that Trump feels as if Clinton has “been through enough.”
Brzezinski noted that Trump will refrain from seeking further action against Clinton for her use of a private email server, as well as any investigation into the controversial Clinton Foundation. The report comes from a source familiar with Trump’s plans, according to the MSNBC morning show.
On the stage for the third and final debate between Clinton and Trump from the campus of UNLV last month, Trump famously quipped “‘Cuz you’d be in jail,” when the former remarked that it was “awfully good,” that someone with Trump’s temperament would not be in charge of our nation’s laws.
If this is a true and accurate report, people are going to be furious!
It is true that in America, we value a peaceful transition of power without unfair retribution from the new leader.
On the other hand, many of the allegations against the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation are outrageous and unacceptable. For example, if it comes to light that the Clintons are, in fact, tied to a worldwide pedophilia ring, how can Trump’s Department of Justice ignore the injustice?
Something tells me this is not the last we will hear of this report.
