Trump Aide: President-elect Won’t Pursue Investigation of Clinton

A key aide to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday he has no intention of pursuing more investigations of Democrat Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, despite his vow during their lengthy race for the White House to put her “in jail.”

Kellyanne Conway, now an adviser to Trump after serving as his campaign manager, told the MSNBC network that “he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges.”

In months of campaign appearances, the Republican Trump attacked Clinton’s handling of national security material in her emails while she served as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, with his cheering supporters shouting, “Lock her up!” as Trump beamed in approval. At one point, Trump said that if he were elected, he would name a special prosecutor to investigate her.

In the interview, however, Conway said, “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.”

Clinton’s use of the private email server based in her New York home played a central role in the campaign, with surveys showing that many voters doubted Clinton’s explanations about the tens of thousands of emails she sent or received while she was the country’s top diplomat and questioned her trustworthiness and honesty.

Clinton said she used the unsecured private email server on a single mobile device, rather than a more secure government server, for her convenience. Clinton said it was a mistake, but that she had not knowingly sent or received classified material in the emails.

FBI investigation

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation launched a lengthy investigation and found some classified material in the emails, but concluded in July that while Clinton was “extremely careless,” no criminal charges were warranted. Trump continued to attack Clinton’s handling of the national security documents.

Then, 11 days before the November 8 election, FBI chief James Comey announced that investigators were taking a new look at Clinton’s emails after several 100,000 were found on the computer of the estranged husband of a key Clinton aide, Huma Abedin. Nine days later, however, just two days ahead of the election, Comey announced that investigators found nothing new, with many of the emails duplicates of the ones it had looked at months before.



Election failure

After Trump’s stunning upset win over Clinton, she and many Democrats blamed Comey’s unexpected announcement reopening the FBI’s email investigation as playing a key role in her defeat, ahead of a nine-day period in which millions of Americans cast ballots in early-voting states.

U.S. political analysts, however, say Clinton’s failure to connect with white, working class voters in the country’s industrial heartland played a more prominent role in the outcome. She lost several states that President Barack Obama claimed in both of his successful campaigns for the presidency.

Trump assumes power January 20 as Obama leaves office.
