In an about face that has some supporters concerned, President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday that he might not pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton.
The New York Post reported:
Why Trump isn’t pursuing charges against Hillary Clinton
President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday he won’t pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton because it would divide the nation — and she’s already “suffered greatly.”
“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons — I really don’t,” Trump said in an interview with the New York Times.
“She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways.”
When asked whether he would pledge not to prosecute the former secretary of state, the president-elect said, “It’s just not something that I feel very strongly about.”
The president-elect added he was also concerned about the impact after the bitter election.
“I think it would be very divisive for the country,” he said.
Hillary’s email scandal was awful. So was her pay-to-play operation at the State Department with the Clinton Foundation.
Still, Trump makes a valid point about bringing the country together.
Or maybe this is the reason:
I hope people realize that if Trump made a big deal about going after Hillary NOW, she would just get pardoned. You get that right?
