We learn today that Wikileaks continues to release emails related to hillary clinton and it’s not getting any better for her:
Judicial Watch recently received 508 pages of documents, including emails, that the conservative group says shows possible conflicts of interest between Hillary Clinton’s State Department and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Realistically, no one doubts that the Clinton’s used their positions to enrich themselves and their Foundation while the Foundation achieved little in the way of real accomplishments and at times caused more harm than good. Prosecuting Hiillary might seem to be an attractive consideration but Donald Trump has apparently thrown some cold water on that idea:
President-elect Donald Trump will not follow through on his campaign pledge to pursue an investigation into Hillary Clinton, one of his top aides told MSNBC’s “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” to other Republicans, former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday.
“I think Hillary Clinton still has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest or trustworthy,” she added. “But if Donald Trump can help her heal then perhaps that’s a good thing.”
Donald Trump should not attempt to prosecute Hillary Clinton. Here’s why:
- It would look like political revenge
Donald Trump stirred controversy yet again in the second presidential debate when he threatened, if elected, to send his opponent to prison. Hillary Clinton’s defenders immediately fumed that this was another piece of evidence that Trump’s temperament was unsuited for the vast powers of the presidency. What he was advocating, they charged, was typical of the politics of third-world dictatorships. America should not be a banana republic where the loser of an election has to fear such vengeance from political opponents.
It would appear to be a dictatorial move and it would alienate moderates and those on the left with whom he is trying to gain traction- and he is gaining some.
2. It would look mean to prosecute her
Trump is astutely developing a message of inclusion and efforts at prosecution would be unhelpful. It would only further divide the country. Trump wants to appear to be a uniter.
3. It makes him look magnanimous
Letting her off the hook makes Trump look like the kind and considerate leader. Now for the most important one.
4. People already think she’s not honest or trustworthy. Why take a chance on vindicating her?
The Clinton’s have a remarkable ability to escape the noose, from the Rose Law firm records to cattlefuturesgate to Whitewater to impeachment to where we are now. Should the Trump administration decide it wants to bring charges against Clinton and she is acquitted, she is vindicated and Trump looks like a chump. It’s best to leave it alone, to let people continue to believe she is dishonest and corrupt rather than take the chance she could once again dodge the hangman. This way Clinton will never fully be able to shower away the stench of corruption and Trump can rise above all of it and run with the roses.
Author’s note: I forget to add- if obama chooses to “pardon” hillary, let him do so. All that will do is concrete the belief that she is a criminal and continue obama’s destruction of the democrat party.
