Uh oh! Donald Trump kept vowing throughout his campaign that he was going to ‘lock up’ Hillary Clinton over her e-mail scandal. So now that he’s the President-Elect, is he still going to make good on that longstanding promise? We’ve got your answer, right here!
Donald Trump, 70, kept demanding that Hillary Clinton, 68, be jailed over her e-mail debacle throughout their bitter race for the White House, but now that he’s won it appears he’s backing off on that pledge. He’s letting his closest advisors do the talking for him now that he’s the President-Elect, and it sounds like he wants to bring the country together in healing rather than spend any more time going after Hillary.
“Politics are over now, people have spoken, time to move on,” New Jersey Gov. and Donald’s transition handler Chris Christie, 54, told the Today Show Nov. 10, though he made it clear that he and Donald haven’t actually discussed the subject yet. It sounds as if Donald is willing to leave the negativity towards Hillary in the past, as Chris revealed that the two had, “an enormously gracious conversation with each other Tuesday night.” Hopefully that included letting her know that his horrible promise to “lock her up” was just campaign rhetoric!
Donald’s possible Attorney General pick Rudy Giuliani, 72, tried to downplay Donald’s campaign vow to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary’s use of a private e-mail server while she was Secretary of State. He told CNN on Nov. 10 that the topic was, “a tough one that should be given a lot of thought and shouldn’t be an off-the-cuff answer.”
“I think that somebody should review that very carefully, as to how bad is that evidence,” he added. “If it isn’t as bad as some of the exaggerators think it is, then maybe the best thing to do is forget about it and move on. If it is really bad, then somebody’s got to look at it who is independent.” Well, the FBI has already cleared her twice now so there really isn’t much to go after!
Rudy stayed on point during a subsequent appearance on Fox News, where it seemed like Donald’s team wants leave the ugliness of his campaign in the past. “One thing is we try to get over the anger and everything else about an election after it’s all over. We want to put it behind us, and I don’t like to see America become a country in which we prosecute people about politics, of going after people in the legal system for political reasons.” Well that’s a relief!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Donald will still pursue a case against Hillary? Or is it best for him to just let it go?
