Donald Trump takes U-turn, drops plans to investigate Hillary Clinton's email server

Donald Trump takes U-turn, drops plans to investigate Hillary Clinton's email server

Last summer FBI Director James Comey said an investigation showed Clinton's use of a private email server didn't justify a criminal prosecution.

While most of the focus was on this first flip-flop, Trump was hardly done revising his positions.

But he said he did not want to "hurt the Clintons" and wants to move on. This news story is related to Print/167322-Trump-will-not-pursue-probe-against-Hillary-claims-aide/ - breaking news, latest news, pakistan ne.

A slightly more sophisticated version of this argument is to say that if elections were decided by popular vote instead of the electoral college, Trump would have campaigned differently and would have won a lot more votes in places like California and NY.

In a lengthy interview with the New York Times, Donald Trump repeatedly cast aside some of his provocative past statements, drastically changing his tune on a few past instances.

"I think Hillary Clinton still has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don't find her to be honest or trustworthy, but if Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that's a good thing", she told MSNBC.

Sixteen years later, history was repeated when Hillary Clinton won more popular votes than Donald Trump.

"I was very impressed by that answer", Trump said, adding that torture is "not going to make the kind of a difference that a lot of people are thinking".

One elector, Michael Baca, said in a statement he wouldn't vote for Trump. But in both the 2000 election and 2016, the candidate winning the popular vote lost the election because the outcome is decided exclusively on the electoral college.

But later in the day Monday, during a meeting with the New York Times, Trump did not rule out the possibility of his administration investigating Clinton.

Six people in the US Electoral College announced that they were going to change their votes in favor of Hilary Clinton to vote in accordance with the results of the expression of people's will. "But I would rather see it where you went with simple votes". As pointed out earlier, there is an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

A week after his historic election victory, Trump tweeted: "The Electoral College is actually genius in that it brings all states, including the smaller ones, into play".
