As the shocking election results began to unfold late last night it became apparent, with numerous social media posts, that many of us were all thinking the same thing:
OK President Trump it’s time to make good on your promise to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
America should begin to find out within a matter of months if Donald Trump is all talk or intends to follow through on a promise he has made multiple times — to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
Back in February, Donald Trump announced his intentions on Sean Hannity’s broadcast from Nevada:
“You have no choice… In fairness, you have to look into that. Now maybe she can prove her innocence. But it just seems to me that the public knows everything that they’re going to know. Emails have come out. She seems to be guilty. But you know what, I wouldn’t even say that. But certainly, it has to be looked at. If a Republican wins, if I’m winning, certainly you will look at that as being fair to anyone else. So unfair to the people that have been prosecuted over the years for doing much less than she did. So she’s being protected, but if I win, certainly it’s something we’re going to look at..
She’s running a very important race for herself.”
Trump strengthened his stance and made the promise directly to Hillary Clinton in the October debates:
The Washington Post reported:
Donald Trump said during Sunday’s presidential debate that, if elected, he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
“I didn’t think I’d say this and I’m going to say it and I hate to say it. … If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception,” Trump said.
So will Trump follow through?
Justice must be served.
