Trump Voters Disappointed He Won’t Seek To Prosecute Hillary Clinton

Trump said he won't appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary's govt email being kept in a basement on an unsecured server. I think that many Trump supports want an independent investigation, if there is such a thing.


Americans who voted for Donald Trump think his transition team is making a bad decision by backing away from his threat to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account and server while she was secretary of state, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov survey.

The president-elect won’t seek to pursue criminal charges against his rival, his former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, told MSNBC early last week. Trump himself later made less definitive comments to the same effect, telling the New York Times that he doesn’t “want to hurt the Clintons.”
www.huffingtonpost.com...

Overall 34% of the American people want to see Hillary be prosecuted, while 68% of Trump voters want to see Hillary be prosecuted.


Many of Trump’s voters, however, aren’t yet willing to retire the “lock her up” chants. Sixty-eight percent of those who voted for Trump said they’d favor asking a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton. Among that group, 42 percent said that it’s “very important” that Trump launch such an investigation, with a total 79 percent saying it’s at least “somewhat important” to them.

She should be investigated.

She should be investigated over the email server, the contents of the emails on it, and the exact reason she could not simply do what she was supposed to do with the information she was privy to.

It's too much to hope for that she be investigated for anything else she may have been up to during her time at State, but there is a rabbit warren to dig out, and picking the right ferret is going to be some hell of a task.

I agree with you, she should be investigated. I wonder why the sudden change in Trump's approach. One of the reasons I cast my vote his way.
When in the debate he said if he was elected she would be in prison, I kinda thought that is what he meant.

meh, they dont care. Trump is considering hiring on Petraeus..a person who flat out gave classified secrets to his mistress and they are all fine with that.

Trump supporters, much like Trump, are empty vessels who literally voted for sound and fury that signified nothing.

Looking forward to the wall...(fence)
Looking forward to deporting them all...(well, okay, now just the top criminals)
Looking forward to draining the swamp...(well, of offical lobbiests..but unofficial is fine, also welcome Goldman Sachs)
Looking forward to the special committee to prosecute Clinton...(lulz)
Looking forward to a repeal of the ACA...(actually might just be amending it overall)

I could go on. Whats the point.
Great new Trump. Donald wins the trolling again..ha..people actually fell for his "Promises"...hahahahaaa...but you lot knew he was just kidding...heh
...time for a drink I suppose...and keep smiling..pretend you knew all along he was riding you like a surfboard. Ole Donald trolling again...Trollmander in Chief.

Because he doesn't know more than the FBI and the results would only make him out to be one of two things

1) the results is taxpayers paying once again for another investigation that results in nothing of significance outside of some wreckless misdemeanors that wont be worth the trouble

or
2) He somehow gets enough power to force higher crimes, suspends due process, and comes across as a tyrant that will ultimately get him impeached for weilding the presidency like a 3rd world despot.

The smart thing for him is to drop it all...pretend it was all just noise to intimidate, and do the whole "its time for healing" bit now...because there is no good outcome otherwise.

Yeah, he should have done what he could..he should have gotten a multimillion dollar committee together..perhaps make it a huge focal point of his presidency..maybe even got it to an entent where she had to pay a fine of 100k or some max penelty. Seems like a good use of vast tax payers sums for his vendettas.

As a fellow Trump voter, I think it would be too much a distraction to drag it out any further. I'm ready to get the economy moving, personally.

But I get why you feel the way you do. There is that little part of my brain that thinks maybe the 2 candidates may have had an 'understanding', which does rankle.

I voted for Trump and I'm not disappointed at all. He knows what is he doing. He didn't take over yet. I think she's going to be prosecuted, but not by his hand.

I rather see him focused in important things and let that witch deal with her karma. Just imagine how much she will suffer watching him restoring America.

Tell that to the Carrier employees, or the Ford employees that will eventually have to be hired because the MKZ is not going either.
Remember he isn't in office yet, cool your jets. I can tell you how many Carrier employees would have been fired if HRC was elected, all of them.

Obama explained the realities to Trump, during his Thursday meeting, informing Trump that the Clintons are "above top secret", and anyone with such clearance is above prosecution for any crime.

So, Trump had no choice but to back off.

As you may be aware, I have not a single positive thought for Trump as a man, or as a President to be. I think the man has all the inherent worth of a sack of cat vomit, left to fester under strong sunlight. However, there is something utterly wrong with one person being treated as a criminal for mishandling classified data, and another person being utterly exempt from any consequence what so ever. It makes you wonder what she would have to do to actually face a single moments disquiet over some violation of law or procedure.

If she broke a law, if she stepped out of line in any serious way at all, it ought to be made public, she ought to be investigated, arrested, charged and tried. That is not what I think because other people think it. That is what I think about the matter because unless the rules apply to everyone, they become weak, and so does society as a result.

That cannot be allowed to happen out of convenience, as it has in the past.

That may be closer to the truth than we will ever know.

I would imagine her memory would come back strong. She would be able to rattle off full names, dates, rapes, drugs, pedo, and all sorts of interesting facts that would out 1/2 of our leaders, if Trump even looks at her. I would also imagine suddenly she would become a computer specialist with thumb drives, computer files and maybe even floppy disks full of stink from the ones who are supposed to put her away.

They will be extra dissapointed when they find out that presidents have no power to prosecute anybody.

Thank god the DOJ will see a wholesale change so they can resume holding criminals responsible for their actions, even Hillary.

Tell that to the Carrier employees. I'm sure if HRC was elected, she would have had a good stiff drink and watched the coverage on CNN of the plant closing. And sat back and laughed at the little people.

Look who just joined Trump's transition team.

TREY GOWDY.

Here is a refresher:



I'm going to say this for those who benefit from the president's polices. You may be willing to allow the end to justify the means in this case. You may well like the fact that the president has abused prosecutorial discretion and conferred benefits in an unprecedented way. You may benefit from from the president's failure to enforce the law.

Today, I will make you this promise: There will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law. There will come a day where you will long for the law to be the foundation of this Republic. So, you be careful what you do with the law today. Because if you weaken it today, you weaken it, forever. With that I would yield back.

of course he isn`t going to publicly admit it,but I have no doubt that the new AG will have trumps full support in investigating and prosecuting Hillary if proof is found that she committed crimes.
Now that he is president he has to distance himself from that whole thing so that he doesn`t look like a dictator seeking revenge against his losing opponent.
he has to make himself look impartial,at least publicly, so that when she is prosecuted ,it doesn`t look like he used the office of the president to influence the AG`s decision.
