Trump Reveals Why He Let Hillary Off The Hook For Prosecution: She’s ‘Suffered Greatly’


President-elect Donald Trump revealed his reason Tuesday for deciding not to prosecute former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server.

“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t. She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways,” Trump said during a sit-down with New York Times’ reporters.

When asked if Trump thought reneging a campaign promise would disappoint his supporters, Trump was confident they wouldn’t be upset.

“I don’t think they will be disappointed,” Trump said. “I think I will explain it that we, in many ways, will save our country.”

Trump also added that the issue had been looked at “ad nauseum” and that it was time to move forward and focus on more important things.

“I think when the president-elect, who is also the head of your party, tells you … he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a strong message — tone and content — to the members,” Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway told MSNBC on 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, but if Trump can help her heal, perhaps that’s a good thing,” Conway added. “I think he’s thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the president of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign are not among them.”

During an exclusive interview Nov. 11 with the Wall Street Journal, Trump already showed disinterest in moving forward with the prosecution of Clinton.

“It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought, because I want to solve health care, jobs, border control, tax reform,” he said at the time.

Immediately after that comment, the conservative news outlet Breitbart ran the headline, “Broken Promise: Trump Doesn’t Wish To Pursue Clinton Email Charges.”

Supporters of Trump speculate this may be a ploy or an attempt to de-politicize the FBI and the Justice Department.

Popular radio host Bill Mitchell, who was an avid supporter of Trump throughout the election, views this incident as “strategic positioning.”

“Obama’s manipulation of the FBI and AG was part of the swamp we wanted drained. Backing away personally, Trump is fulfilling that promise,” Mitchell wrote Tuesday on Twitter.

Mitchell advised Trump supporters not to lose faith, and said it’s quite possible that two months into Trump’s presidency the FBI and Jeff Sessions could announce a Hillary grand jury.
