No charges for Clintons

The media breathlessly reports that Bill and Hillary will escape scot-free from everything they didn’t do anyhow:

After Trump stunned the nation during the second presidential debate with Hillary Clinton, in which he quipped that under a Trump presidency “she would be in jail”, and suggested that he would demand a special prosecutor probe into Clinton’s email server and the Clinton foundation, moments ago MSNBC’s Morning Joe reported, citing a source, that president-elect Donald Trump will not pursue any investigations into his former political rival Hillary Clinton “for her use of a private email server and the Clinton foundation.”

Trump reportedly feels that Clinton has “been through enough.”

Trump had routinely attacked Clinton on the campaign trail over her use of a private server as secretary of State and for foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation while she was in the Obama administration.

The report, first announced by Mika Brzezinski, comes just a week after a 60 Minutes interview where Trump indicated that he may not launch a full investigation into the Democratic nominee. “I’m gonna think about it,” he said at the time to Leslie Stahl. “I don’t wanna hurt them. They’re good people,” he continued of the Clintons.

Again, for the Nth time, Settle. Down. Relax. The God-Emperor Ascendant clearly believes in keeping his enemies in the dark. I would not assume anything at all on the basis of news reports on a topic as sensitive as this.

Even if you insist on parsing the statement, we all know that Hillary is guilty of far worse crimes than setting up a private email server. And so does he.

UPDATE: Trump says “no” when asked if he is taking investigations off the table for the Clintons, @maggieNYT
