Headlines blared on Tuesday with the news that Donald Trump wouldn’t pursue charges against Hillary Clinton.
President-elect Donald Trump won’t subject Hillary Clinton to a criminal inquiry — instead, he’ll help her heal, his spokeswoman said Tuesday.
“I think when the president-elect who’s also the head of your party … tells you before he’s even inaugurated he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone and content, to the members,” Kellyanne Conway told the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” who first reported that the president-elect would not pursue his campaign pledge to “lock up” Clinton, his Democratic opponent.
What does this mean, exactly? Is this another patented Trump head-fake? Or are sinister, globalist forces at work protecting their own?
Back during the last presidential debate, when Trump threatened that if elected he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary’s “situation,” Hillary responded that “It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
The Witch from Chappaqua knew, or should have known, the president is “not in charge of the law in our country,” at least not according to the Constitution. Of course, presidents of late have acted as if they are and congress and the courts have been loath to stop them.
And under a constitutional government, Trump would have no say over whether SHillary is prosecuted. That’s a job for an independent FBI and Department of Justice.
But the Department of Justice has under Barack Obama become the Department of JustUs. Trump was elected, in part, to fix that.
But if Trump intervenes and orders — either overtly or covertly — a criminal investigation into Hillary’s emails or the Clinton Foundation be stopped, that’s obstruction of justice. It’s essentially what Obama had Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch do.
And it’s an impeachable offense. Or at least it was when Richard Nixon was president.
