Letting Hillary off the Hook Is ‘Definition of a Rigged System’
Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily to discuss President-elect Donald Trump’s statement that he would not pursue a criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton.
Marlow pointed out that in an interview Tuesday night, Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway seemed to confirm Clinton would escape further investigation because Trump “thinks that she and the Clintons have suffered enough,” and he wants to “unite the country and move forward, not backward.”
“There’s a lot of imprecision in this conversation,” Schweizer noted. “We don’t know exactly what she was referring to – whether she was referring to the email investigation, the Clinton Foundation investigation, or both.”
He said it was possible Conway meant both, and added that in a conversation with the New York Times, Trump “indicated essentially the same thing, that he didn’t want to do any harm to the Clintons, which, to me, was a pretty general statement in saying that he didn’t want to see any legal action potentially taken against the Clintons.”
“My bottom line position, Alex, is, look, he should not even be commenting on this. It’s not appropriate for a President of the United States to be talking about a possible criminal investigation that’s taking place by the FBI at this point. It’s just simply not his place,” Schweizer said.
