Neera Tanden, an adviser for Hillary Clinton, claimed today that Donald Trump is threatening to put Hillary Clinton in prison because of the recount challenge. She thinks that Trump lied on the campaign that he will prosecute Hillary, but now these pointless requests to recount might change his mind.
I have not heard Trump claim this yet. Although, I have to say, I would indeed relish him going after Clinton. He has said he wasn’t going after her. Word has it though, he is having his ambassadors push foreign countries to look into dealings with the Clinton Foundation. But he didn’t even really need to do that. It’s already being done by multiple countries and the flow of money to the Clintons has completely dried up suddenly. Trump’s Chief of Staff said yesterday that he is ‘not seeking methods and ways to persecute and prosecute Hillary Clinton’.
A former Hillary Clinton staffer claimed Monday that Donald Trump is plotting to put his White House rival in jail because of her involvement in the Wisconsin recount.
Neera Tanden, an adviser to Clinton the first time she ran for president, said Trump was ‘lying’ on the campaign trail when he said he’d lock his general election opponent up.
‘Then, last week, he said he wasn’t going to prosecute her, and now he’s threatening to prosecute her if she takes part in a recount,’ Tanden, head of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress, asserted on MSNBC.
She also mocked the Trump camp for pushing back on the recount that Democrats, including Clinton’s lawyer, have said will not have the effect of removing Trump from office.
‘If people have confidence in the election, then I don’t know what the worry is,’ she said. ‘If the Trump campaign thinks these numbers are accurate, president-elect Trump thinks these things are accurate, then I don’t know why he’s so anxious about it, why he needs to attack Hillary.’
Why in the world would anyone believe Tanden? She heads up the Soros-funded, Polesta-connected Center for American Progress.
Although Trump himself won’t go after Clinton, the door was left open for the DOJ to go after her. Senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said on CNN that Trump wouldn’t rule out an investigation in his talk with the Times while stating, “It’s just not his focus right now. I think he’s being quite magnanimous, and at the same time, he is not undercutting at all the authority and the autonomy of the Department of Justice, of the FBI, of the House committees,” Conway stated.
Trump has a lot of work to do right now. First things first, she will and should pay for the damage she’s done to this great land. We need to know what exactly she has done. He just need to let her sweat until everything is in its own place.
