On Tuesday’s “Morning Joe,” Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said that the incoming Trump administration will not pursue charges against Hillary Clinton for her “email scandal” when she was Secretary of State, and on any of the alleged wrongdoing involving the Clinton Foundation.
Of course Conway had to get her digs in, saying, “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 the members,” Conway said. “And I think Hillary Clinton still has to face the fact that the majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest and trustworthy. But if Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that is a good thing. Look, I think he’s thinking of many different things as he is preparing to become president of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign aren’t among them.”
Hillary Clinton hasn’t been charged with a crime, and FBI Director James Comey said Hillary wouldn’t face any charges for her role in using a private email server. Still, this must be a huge relief to Hillary who has been maligned by the GOP for thirty years now. It’s a sign (although a minute one) that Trump is willing to act like a grown-up.
