Let The Investigations Continue On The Clinton Scandals

Clinton Scandals: Donald Trump now says he won't pursue Hillary Clinton on criminal charges for her email and Clinton Foundation scandals — despite pledging during the campaign to name a special prosecutor to investigate her possible crimes and, if she were found guilty, to "lock up" the Democratic nominee.
It's a smart move by the president-elect. In a sharply divided America, a personal vendetta is no way to start a presidency.
During the second presidential debate in October, Trump was blunt about what he intended to do: "If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception."
Now, he's having second thoughts. Just a week ago, he hinted on "60 Minutes" that he wouldn't pursue an investigation: "I don't want to hurt them. They're good people," he said of the Clintons.
He virtually repeated that Tuesday to the New York Times, saying, "I don't want to hurt the Clintons, I really don't. She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways."
He also said a possible prosecution would be "very, very divisive for the country."
