Despite being grateful for Hillary Clinton’s “service” during his victory speech early Wednesday morning, the Trump Campaign is not ruling out a special criminal prosecutor for Hillary…
During the St. Louis Presidential Debate, President Elect Trump said something he “didn’t want to say”, that if he was elected President, he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary Clinton’s alleged crimes.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough pushed Trump’s Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway this morning on whether Trump would follow through on that threat:
“He had a very gracious, very warm conversation with Secretary Clinton,” Conway said of the concession conversation. “It lasted about a minute.”
The panel wanted to know more about how Trump plans to proceed with Clinton, however. During the debates, Trump said that Clinton should be jailed, and his crowds regularly chant “lock her up” at his rallies. When asked if Trump intends to appoint a special prosecutor for Clinton, Conway wasn’t sure.
“We did not discuss that last night since his victory and he didn’t address it with Mrs. Clinton on the phone,” she said.
Joe Scarborough remarked that Trump said that he would on the national debate stage. But Conway deflected.
“I would need to discuss that with him,” she explained. “I think you heard his own words last night to the extent that one man can as president and Vice President [Mike] Pence, who is phenomenal, they’re looking to unify the country. We haven’t discussed that in recent days. I think that it’s all in good time. We also — I think that Donald Trump proved too that even amidst a corrupt and rigged system where people are forgotten and don’t feel like they can get a fair shot, they can rise up on Election Day and express their voice.”
