In August, Trump announced that he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the financial dealings of the Clinton Foundation. After his win last night, it was announced he will look into the issue “in due time.”
Thanks to WikiLeaks and a host of other incriminating leaks regarding Hillary Clinton and her family’s “charitable” foundation, many Americans are now aware that the Clinton family is very much involved in some “shady” activities. One of the biggest scandals of this election season for Clinton was her use of a private email server and her mishandling of classified information. The FBI investigated this issue, not once but twice, and was blocked both times by FBI Head James Comey, the Department of Justice, and the “Shadow Government.” In response to the FBI’s first announcement that it would not recommend charges despite finding that Clinton was extremely negligent with classified documents, Trump told supporters that the FBI “cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate Hillary Clinton’s crimes.” He also took the issues to the national debate stage, saying on October 10th “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation. Because there have never been so many lies, so much deception,” adding that Clinton “would be in jail” if he won the Election.
Yet, after winning the Presidency Tuesday night, Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway did not confirm that a special prosecutor was to be appointed, but she was also careful not to rule it out. In an interview with MSNBC, Joe Scarborough pressed Conway on the special prosecutor issue, reminding her that Trump had announced the plan on the national debate stage. She said “I would need to discuss that with him. […] We haven’t discussed that in recent days. I think it’s all in good time.” In a poll not taken long before the election, a majority of Americans – 65% – believe that Clinton broke the law through her use of her private email server, with 53% believing that the FBI should have filed charges. If Trump does choose to prosecute Clinton, it appears he will have the support of a majority of Americans.
Aside from the email server, Trump also previously mentioned that he would investigate Clinton over her financial dealings, particularly those pertaining to the Clinton Foundation. As WikiLeaks revealed, the Clinton Foundation received numerous, massive donations from unsavory foreign nations and individuals, some while she was serving as Secretary of State. Many of these donations coincided with massive weapon deals to these same countries or for access to the Clintons in exchange for totals often larger than one million dollars.
In one example, the King of Morocco donated $12 million to the Clinton Foundation for access to Hillary, who then helped secure a $157 million weapons deal in exchange for the donation. Many other WikiLeaks emails have also exposed that Clinton insiders were aware of the Clinton Foundation breaking the law, calling it a liability and “a mess.” Though it remains to be seen if Trump will keep any of his campaign promises, it seems likely that this is one he will see through.
