The Chicago Sun Times reports that Donald Trump has once again suggested there will be no special prosecutor for Hillary Clinton, calling her and Bill Clinton “good people”:
Trump back-pedaled on his promise to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton over her emails. “I’m going to think about it,” Trump said.
“. . . She did some bad things, I mean she did some bad things,” Trump said, prompting Stahl to ask, “I know, but a special prosecutor? You think you might . . .
To which Trump replied, making a reference to Bill and Hillary Clinton, “I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them. They’re, they’re good people. I don’t want to hurt them. And I will give you a very, very good and definitive answer the next time we do 60 Minutes together.”
You know, I’m a big fan of being charitable to politicians and their motives . . . and even I can’t bring myself to say the Clintons are “good people.” They tried to destroy the lives of people for telling the truth about them. They used the resources of the federal government to do so. That’s actually worse than Obama’s offense of sitting in a church for years and listening to a pastor who occasionally showed his hatred for America. The Clintons are not good people.
But that’s what I would say. After all, I never donated to the Clintons.
Donald Trump did.
Add his latest statement to the pile of statements he has already made insinuating there will be no special prosecutor, like “It’s not something I’ve given a lot of thought” . . . or praising Hillary, like “we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.”
There will be no special prosecutor. That was campaign bluster.
