Lock her up?
As am sure you know many parts of the lying mainstream media is reporting that President Trump will not push for a special prosecutor to indict Hillary Clinton for her many crimes. It seems that Trump has indicated he wants to avoid it to keep from dividing the country. He is quoted by they scumbag New York Times (via Politico) as follows:“It’s just not something that I feel very strongly about,” he said Tuesday afternoon in an on-the-record discussion with reporters from The New York Times.
Trump cast his reversal as a unifying move that, contrary to some of the early backlash, he believes won’t upset his supporters.
“I don't think they will be disappointed. I think I will explain it that we in many ways will save our country,” he said, adding that prosecuting Clinton “would be very, very divisive for the country.”
Trump did, however, suggest he wasn’t taking potential investigations into Clinton off the table, while still remarking that he doesn’t want to “hurt the Clintons.”
So if you factor in the fact that the New York Times will do anything to protect Hilllary you have some interesting things to unpack. Trump is saying that he will not push it but even the Times admits that he wasn't taking potential investigations off of the table. The Justice Department under Jeff Sessions will continue it's investigation. It will be a fair inquiry without the President putting his thumb on the scale. Which I think is right and proper. Obama of course was the exact opposite. Jeff Sessions is a man of the utmost integrity. He will not cover up any crimes that Hillary had committed. In addition there is a separate investigation in New York into Anthony Weiner and Huma that Hillary is caught up in which is outside of Trumps control. You have to realize that there are ambitious people who will look at Hillary as a target. It will interesting to see who will be appointed the US Attorney for the Southern District. If it a grand standing political type like a Giuliani or Chris Christie you might get someone who wants to make a name for himself. Thus Hillary can be prosecuted and Trumps hands will be clean. That is Trump all over. So it still remains to be seen what will happen.
Personally I am disappointed that he is not appointing a special prosecutor. This is just the first of many things that I am sure Trump will do to disappoint me. I have said that from the beginning of this campaign. He is a weak vessel for the reforms and the direction I want. But he is a step along the way. If he passes his reforms of term limits and an end to revolving door lobbying then he will have done a lot. If he just enforces the immigration laws and builds a wall and cancels bogus trade deals he will have kept faith with his supporters. In addition I have little doubt he will unleash American energy to stimulate the economy. Plus he will keep us out of neocon wars with the Russians over Syria or some other bullshit like that there. He will do many positive things that will justify my support of his candidacy.
I am sure he will also do many things that disappoint me. He will disappoint on the social conservative issues like gay marriage and defunding Planned Parenthood. But then the Pope disappoints me so I am used to that. I just know he will not be a active enemy to religion and religious people like Obama and Hillary would be. I think he will also make a great Supreme Court pick because he will appoint someone like Ted Cruz or Mike Lee just to make everyone's head explode so it will all work out.
I would have loved to see a special prosecutor but I am willing to put my faith in Jeff Sessions and the rule of law. I think think that is just a reasonable thing to do.
What do youse guys think?
