Almost immediately after Trump defeated Hillary in the general election, he went out of his way to offer an olive branch to her supporters. He publicly declared that, “Hillary has suffered enough,” signaling that he would not pursue criminal charges against her. Trump took the high road in an effort to heal our nation, even though most of his supporters did not agree with his decision. But that was before he found out Hillary’s been scheming with her lawyers to steal the election from him since the day after the election…
A senior Donald Trump adviser is calling Hillary Clinton’s decision to join a recount effort “incredible” and noting that the president-elect has not ruled out pursuing a criminal investigation into his former Democratic rival.
Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told CNN’s “State of the Nation” that Trump has not ruled out a criminal probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, even though Trump recently indicated he’d rather not do so.
Conway said, “He’s been incredibly gracious and magnanimous to Secretary Clinton at a time when, for whatever reason, her folks are saying they will join in a recount to try to somehow undo the 70-plus electoral votes that he beat her by.”
She added, “The idea that we are going to drag this out now where the president-elect has been incredibly magnanimous to the Clintons and to the Obamas is pretty incredible.”
Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to condemn the Green-Party backed recount effort as “a scam.” Clinton’s team joined the effort in Wisconsin after Green Party nominee Jill Stein filed paperwork formally requesting a recount. –AP
