Lock her up? Nah. (Or: Trump instantly caves on justice for Hillary.)

teamwork

Well that didn’t take long.

The chants of “lock her up!” barely had a chance to finish echoing through the countryside before The Donald decided that justice for Hillary really isn’t such a big deal after all.

So what about all o’ those “Hillary for Prison” yard signs, bumper stickers, and t-shirts? How are they lookin’ right about now?

Like expired propaganda, that’s what.

As The Washington Post reported:

“Kellyanne Conway, who ran Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and now works with his transition team, told MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Tuesday that the president-elect doesn’t plan to follow through with one of the central promises of his campaign.

Conway confirmed Scarborough’s reporting that Trump won’t “be pursuing investigations” against his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, and suggested that Republicans in Congress probably would get that message.

“I think when the president-elect who’s also the head of your party now, Joe,” Conway said, “tells you before he’s even inaugurated he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone and content to the members.

“Look,” she added, “I think he’s thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the president of the United States and things that sound like the campaign aren’t among them.”

There’s a tacit admission there that Trump’s insistence that he would prosecute Clinton was all campaign rhetoric. . . “

So Hillary seems safe for the moment, thanks in no small part to the proclamations of a President-elect who became President-elect by promising to “drain the swamp” and “lock her up” while representing the interests of “the common man” and the principle of fairness in an American age defined by one set of rules for elites and another for the lesser masses.

Now that the votes have been cast and the election has been won, we’re beginning to get a sense as to the reliability of all o’ those big, bold, loud, and proud Trump campaign promises.

Anyone out there in Trumpland starting to feel like Ivana Trump yet?

Or maybe Marla Maples Trump?

Just wondering…

  1. Well, when I first saw reports of Trumps flip-flop on giving HRC a pass, my heart sunk within me. BUT, in talking with a friend, he shared these speculations of hope, maybe of some value: "On the one hand; she's just pissed off LOTS of powerful people, and the investigation still rolls on, with names getting named… And she's old and in really, really poor health. What's the over/under for her being alive this time next year?

    And on the other hand; a thorough investigation would indict the top half of the Exec branch, as well as most of State. It would be a HUGELY expensive and drawn-out affair, going on for years, with dozens to hundreds of very high-ranking people getting indicted, all of our dirty laundry getting aired, the Powers That Be would be 100% fighting this tooth and nail because their butts are on the line, classified stuff would have to be released, so it would be spun as a personal attack by Trump on his defeated enemy (remember that the first Clinton impeachment was just about sex, right?), etc, etc, freaking etc.

    A better solution; drain the swamp.

    Pin everything on Huma, and maybe a few second-tier people, and really let the rank-and-file know that if they support crooks and liars, it's THEM, the second-tier people, that will pay a steep, steep price. Go after her foundation. Go after Chelsea, go after Podesta, they are the ones that enabled her to be such a crook. Throw a few of the really crooked people in jail for 10 years and watch the rats scurry. I'm also thinking of the IRS and EPA here, the ones that can really do damage to what you and I value.

    We really, really need to avoid getting painted with the "Witch-hunt" label. So, at this point, it's wait and see. Trump has to say he won't prosecute, I believe as per my "on the other hand" argument. But. On the gripping hand; the investigations are still on-going, even picking up steam, and Trump is busy appointing all the right people. So, wait and see. If, say, around March or April all the investigations have stopped, then we will know we were betrayed. But for now, I'd give him room to maneuver, we really, really don't want people destroying evidence at the other agencies, and as I said, we need to avoid being branded Witch-Hunters, that is the strategy the other side will take – and they have A LOT to lose"
