The spin and denial is at record heights.
Rome2000 epitomizes the mainline Freep attitude - Trump is lying to set a clever trap:
This “not going to go after SHRILLARY” is just an example of what it takes to win; keep these communist bastards guessing.Timpanagos1 just refuses to believe the story:
Obama will look foolish if he pardons the KLINTOON KRIME FAMILY now.
Once the blue lipped mooselimb is gone, LOOK OUT SHRILLARY!!!!
That’s simply not true.As it becomes undeniable, Timpanagos1 jumps into the 'Trump's lying' side with both feet:
Trump will have his DoJ investigate Clinton and they will indict Clinton as promised by Donald Trump during the campaign.
Trump is putting the word out now that he will not prosecute Clinton as a means to give Hillary a false sense of security and then once he is President Trump, he will go after Hillary with all powers of the federal government.TBP looks for loopholes - maybe Congress will be petty enough to investigate! That would look great politically!
It is what he promised, it is what he will do..
The Republicans on the Hill are still going to investigate it.Ann Archy tries to hide behind formality that no one believes:
Interestingly, the same people who attacked Congressional Republicans for investigating the Clintons, saying it was just an election ploy, now insist that it be dropped because the election is over.
It’s not up to TRUMP!!! It’s up to the Attorney General!!I want the USA back weakly attempts to argue Hillary's loss is basically worse than locking her up. He adds lots of name-calling in an attempt to look strong:
The old hag has suffered enough. The people rejected her for being a corrupt muzzard-loving America-hating witch.Rashputin has another pretty choice theory that uses Hillary's secret illness as an excuse:
Trump will benefit by deciding not to prosecute her.
Trump has been briefed and knows Hillary will be dead before the end of 2017, and he's getting the media and the noise to focus on this because he's quietly working on which charges he's going to bring against other members of the Clinton and democrat machines.Poor Tucker39 mixes calling the story a hoax with frantic straw grasping:
JMHo, or in this case Just My Humble Hypothesis
Is this another fake news item? Even if Trump passes on investigating the emails, the Clinton Crime Family Fund is still out there. I’ve heard that the individual States are free to prosecute, and that both New York and Arkansas are looking at it. She can’t be left to slide.SubMareener points out that not-yet-President Trump has technically not failed as a Freeper President:
No, it looks as if we aren’t going to be talking about it when President Donald Trump can’t do anything to actually push and investigation. In boxing this is called “rope-a-dope”.alternatives? is backing off on the Obama Pardonapalooza theory:
Let not your heart be troubled! Has he actually disappointed on any issue.
Hopefully Obama pardons her but I don’t think he will because he is only concerned about his own legacy.jmaroneps37 has turned on Trump, but hastens to add he's still loyal!
A clear betrayal - nothing less - DRAIN the SWAMP? Bull Shiite the biggest alligator is right in front of you!King Hawk is the only I could see to go fully anti-Trump.
This is a very bad decision. It’s NOT at all a deal breaker, but a very bad decision nonetheless.
Another liar! Great!! I hope they protest him into the ground.kiltie65 wonders if maybe Hillary is using her supernatural 'blackmail everyone' powers:
Well, sorry as I am to think this, but I doubt Trump has been lily pure his entire life, and Hillary’s stock in trade is having the goods on everyone. Maybe Trump has to pull back on prosecuting Hillary in case she discloses stuff that would be damning to Trump??? Maybe Trump should consider that if he gives her a pass, it will only continue throughout his Presidency. Just wait until AFTER the inaugural and he’s safely elected, then see what he will do.StormPrepper also on the blackmail train:
Wasn't it Hess that died in Spandau Prison and was never granted a direct interview with the press? It was theorized that he had knowledge of members of the British government that colluded with the Nazis. I almost wonder if that's not what's happening here. Clinton has potentially embarrassing (or worse) knowledge and when President Trump was briefed, he canned the investigation to keep her quiet. Or something like that.The whole thing is delicious but I hope the Trump is being blackmailed narrative grows whenever he breaks a campaign promise. Soon Trump will be a secret gay just like Chief Justice Roberts!
I find it odd that someone so corrupt would be allowed to walk...??? Doesn't make sense...
