Barry Richard – Trump Right To Drop Probe Of Clinton
President-Elect Donald Trump has outlined his priorities for his first 100 days in office. Absent from the list, a criminal investigation of one time Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.
During it's first 100 days in office the Trump Administration plans to pursue action on trade, immigration, energy, regulatory curbs, national security and ethics changes, according to a video released by the administration on Monday. There was no specific mention of repealing Obamacare or building a wall along the southern border in Trump's video.
During the campaign Trump threatened to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton's handling of a private email server and the controversial Clinton Foundation, but appears now to be backing away from that rhetotic.
Trump Spokesperson Kellyanne Conway told MSNBC's “Morning Joe,” “Look, 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.” She added, “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 Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that’s a good thing.”
I think that if Trump can focus on the issues outlined in his agenda for the first 100 days and make progress on many of the things he promised to do than the decision to not pursue an investigation will have been a wise one. Most Americans are battle weary and are ready to move on to bringing about the change we all say we long for. Pursuing Clinton at this point could appear political and vengeful. It would simply prolong the period of bitter divisiveness that has so paralyzed our nation.
The time has come to move on and begin the process of making America great again.
