Trump Changes His Mind About Clinton Investigation


Donald Trump has backed down on one of his major campaign pledges to prosecute his Democratic rival during the race for the White House.

Throughout his election campaign, Trump hit out at Clinton over the investigation into her use of a private email server during her role as secretary of state, suggesting he would launch a fresh investigation if he won the White House.

The US president- elect said he does not want to “hurt” Hillary Clinton or her family.

Press TV reports:

Trump made the statement during an interview with CBS on Sunday, trying to dodge questions about a pledge to prosecute Clinton once he takes office.

“She did some bad things, I mean she did some bad things,” Trump said of the former first lady.

However, he took a vague tone when asked if he ever was going to probe Clinton and her family, whom he frequently referred to as “Crooked Hillary” during the campaign.

“I don’t want to hurt them; I don’t want to hurt them. They’re, they’re good people,” he said.

“I don’t want to hurt them,” he repeated. “And I will give you a very, very good and definitive answer the next time.”

One day after his historic victory over Clinton on November 8, Trump took a reconciliatory tone in his victory speech and said all Americans owed the former secretary of state “a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”

This is while, during the presidential debates, Trump had openly threatened to imprison Clinton over her use of a private server to exchange thousands of emails with potentially sensitive content.

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has twice cleared Clinton of all charges relating to her possible mishandling of government secrets, drawing fire from Trump and his supporters.

Trump has also accused Clinton and President Barack Obama of creating the Daesh (ISIL) Takfiri group in Iraq, saying they were responsible for the group’s expansion into Syria and other countries around the world.

Clinton’s support for the 2003 US Invasion of Iraq was another attacking point used by Trump.

Additionally, the New York businessman has accused Clinton of mishandling the 2012 attack against the American consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, which led to the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Spearheading a Western military intervention in Libya that facilitated the overthrow of the African country’s former ruler Muammar Gaddafi was another crime committed by Clinton, according to Trump’s campaign.

However, Clinton later on revealed that Trump himself had “extensively” supported attacking Libya.

    Thats a sweet sentiment. Wouldnt want to hurt Clinton and her family… let’s just allow the other other 320,000,000 to people suffer though disillusionment of the justice system at her expense. Because “they’re, they’re good people”. Not that we had any doubts she would get off scotch free.

    He will don’t trip- whats he supposed to claim hes going after her on CBS, the media will use that as an excuse to fuel more protesters.. Look at it this way- with Soros paying the protesters bank, Trump has not even taken office yet and he is already creating high paying jobs…

    I am not sure what the truth behind this is. 1) the Media lies. 2) Its hard to tell if this is not “disinformation.” 3) I cannot find any other references to this story other than this page right here. 4) Trump sold his election to us on the very promise he would convict. 5) there has been a lot of “Obama will do this,” and “Obama will do that,” in the news (cough) and all it has been is back and forth hearsay.

    Donald trump is in no position to act YET! It is not January 20th 2017 YET and likewise you cannot just break out the hand cuffs and say “Turn around B ITCH. Hands behind your back.” There is this thing called DUE PROCESS and under the law all are entitled equal due process. Now YES she has been skirting and flaunting the law for a very long time. There will be a process Donald MUST Obey and that is to deal with his appointments. Ask them to perform a specific duty and once they say yes he has to let their gears and wheel engage in their own motion. That does not mean Donald cannot provide the grease to help them keep moving.

    Now another thing to keep in mind is that Donald will have a LOT on his plate that he will have to orchestrate because he has a lot of political damage to unravel with other nations like India and Russia. Likewise he has to get our industry back up and running and that means a lot of house cleaning to do domestically. Its like we need to hit this huge imaginary Reset Button to put things back to when they were working correctly. Also there is dealing with the PPACA (Obamacare) and tightening up Government spending. Hillary’s conviction is not the all encompassing end all point of Contention America has. The Corruption runs MUCH deeper. She is just one rat in a huge nest and we need to kill the king and queen rat. The Democratic party is a HUGE deep intricate conspiracy that will take time to unravel properly and if Donald Trump really has balls as big as he portrays them to be he will be the one not only leading a significant drive to exterminate the RINOs but he will break the back of the DNC and people like George Soros and those orchestrating NWO on us all.

    Hillary is only one rat in a the huge swamp we know as Washington D.C.

    All eyes are on you Donald. Let’s see how you play your first move come the end of January! You are going to need some very big pumps to drain that swamp. You may need the help of the Army Corps of Engineers, Backed with the U.S. MARINES! BUST SOME HEADS! MAKE THEM CRY!
