President-elect Donald Trump will not pursue charges against Hillary Clinton relating to the Clinton foundation or the former secretary of state’s use of a private email server, former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Conway said that while Clinton “has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest and trustworthy,” it would be a good thing if Trump can “help her heal.”
“I think when the President-elect, who’s also the head of your party…tells you before he’s even inaugurated he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone, and content,” she said.
The move is a significant break from Trump’s campaign rhetoric, which included a warning that if he were president he’d get his attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate her behavior. In the second presidential debate he quipped to Clinton that if he was president: “you’d be in jail.”
Now, concerning the above matter, let me just say that I may be wrong about Trump and his intentions, but given Trump’s performance over the past year, perhaps this quote is relevant:
“War is a thing of pretense: therefore, when capable of action, we pretend disability; when near to the enemy, we pretend to be far; when far away, we pretend to be near.
Allure the enemy by giving him a small advantage. Confuse and capture him. … Attack weak points, and appear in unexpected places.
These are the secrets of the successful strategist, therefore they must not be made known beforehand.”
– Sun Tzu
So let’s keep the above in mind when thinking about the Hillary affair. After all, I’m pretty sure that Trump has read ‘The Art of War’… nd I am pretty sure that Jeff Sessions is the AG….
