Trump won't go after Hillary

They're good people, he said of Hillary and Bill. Of course, he has a lot in common with Bill. It appears that President Trump is going to be different than candidate Trump. Apparently, the chants of "Lock her up!" don't matter anymore. I have no problem with that decision. I hope that Congress follows suit. Going after Hillary would just be a distraction and create even more unnecessary partisan bickering. They should concentrate on more important issues.

Poor choice. The honest people need the catharsis. There's a good reason past deposed Regents had their heads removed.

It is a shame if true. THEY ARE NOT GOOD PEOPLE! They are vermin. She commits a crime and is given a pass which not one person on the board would be lucky enough to get. We don't need her to heal. Do you really think letting a crook off is a healing act? It is not...it makes them want to continue doing what they do...lie, cheat and steal.

If Trump is going to chose which laws he will enforce, how is he different from Obozo?

What good is a "revolution"

What good is a "revolution" is you don't have some show trials and a public execution or two?

I feel cheated.

Mark, who said he is a traitor? It is a little disconcerting, however, that Trump back-peddles on one of the cornerstones of his election promises even before he is inaugurated. It causes one to think...what else is coming?

It's almost like he was a con man telling his marks what they wanted to hear. Now he's going soft on climate change. Feeling used yet?

I understand the desire to put bad things behind us. I think that Trumps decision to not ORDER a pursuit of Hillary is appropriate. Politics should have no part within the Justice system. This is not to say that the Justice system cannot review the evidence and come to their own non-partisan decisions. Indeed they should, if there is to be any restitution or semblance of Justice within the Federal system. The citizenry needs to see that NO ONE is above the law.

Whether or not this is going to happen as I think it should, only time will tell.

It's not the president's job

It's not the president's job to indict criminals or even recommend indictment, it's the justice department's function Who knows maybe he's just playing the nice guy for the cameras and Sessions will do the wet work....Somehow I believe that hilarity and bubba won't go unscathed....I think Trump is more Machiavellian than they think.

Good point, Bruce. That's how I heard it reported . . emails. I don't know if it's splitting hairs or inaccurate reporting but I think the influence peddling is much juicier fruit.

"It causes one to think...what else is coming?" For starters, that wall that Mexico is going to pay for. Ain't.Gonna.Happen. But like prosecuting Hillary, you knew that wasn't going to happen, didn't you? You must really enjoy playing the roles of chumps.

Jbird, the one who led the TRUMPet section for Hillary. The one who also predicted that TRUMP would never be elected. It appears that the Jbird has run out of crying towels. To bad. Might actually have to seek employment.

In most matters involving the

In most matters involving the government there are some basic things/criteria to have to be met particularly
in the justice/legal side of things.

Is whatever :
Constitutional
Statuttory
Administrative policy
and the feel good factor.
These are tests that have to be met. The first three if met usually satisfies the last one.
Not meeting the first three or any of them nullifies the fourth.

In the tape case due to FBI actions it is questionable if in end the others could pass muster IMO.
The thought of it feels good though.

What does appeal is this isn't the only issue on table.

Historically, the pardon of Nixon ( who must be rolling over in grave) comes to mind. Loosingthe presidency as a punishment self imposed surpassed
anything that could have been done to him.

I offer the loss of this election for theClintons is equel if not surpasses that . For Billl 53% of women didn't like them ,for Hillary the same number
didn't want her in office or any other way !

Her defeat passes the "Feel Good" test really well. The rest will come to pass .

All those monied interests who gave do you think they will remain silent when a FBI agent calls ?

My own opinion is that many

My own opinion is that many of Trump's political supporters in the Senate and House feared what Hillary might have on them and if charged, Hillary could and most likely blow the whistle on all of them, even if it were later proven false. Since Trump needs their support to get anything done he really had no choice. It does smack of a system now so corrupt it must continue its corruption in order to survive. That corruption begins at the local level and its beneficiaries then rise to the top in order to reap even more benefits of corruption. It is why, "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely".

Your opinion is a great example.it passes a feels good test for you, not much else.
A problem here is the making things so complicated with such opinions as above.
There really isn't much to be gained at this moment by doing anything different .

If you think it feels good to

If you think it feels good to know that corruption is rampant in the chase for the almighty dollar you are not only sadly mistaken you think e a fool. The frustration is that one cannot do anything about it because those that engage in it have the power to continue it unabated by the likes of myself who see it for what it is. If you want to stick your head in the sand or look the other way it is either because you benefit from it or are total blind to the truth. Benjamin Franklin saw it coming and said the safeguards that were being established would last for a time "and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other". He failed to understand how soon that would happen when in 1789 at the first Congress Hamilton got passed the National Bank Act after convincing Washington against the advice of both Jefferson and attorney general Randolph to pass an unconstitutional act. It was never challenged in the courts but by the time the charter for the bank expired the act resulted in the establishment of the mint, federal control of the economy and the payment of the country's and States debts.

All these supposedly good things overshadow the fact that probably Hamilton and his friends who had bought up all the debt they could lay their hands on for ten cents on the dollar made a killing when it was redeemed at face value. Washington himself may have benefited from the act and wanted to cover himself by seeking advice from others as to the constitutionality of the act because he himself who probably held a lot of the paper in lieu of a salary during the war. It was unfortunate that he failed to get it in a vote of one for and two against but chose it anyway. That he should have known the act was unconstitutional is a moot point because he was not only a delegate to the Continental Congress but its chairman.

If this appears complicated it is only because all of the facts have never been aired but swept under the rug to leave sceptics like myself to understand the why in light of facts that only make the end justify the means. The method was cited by Hamilton in his defense of the act instead of citing that part of the Constitution that enabled the Congress to act in the fashion it did.

The buyer's remorse is piling

Pmconusa is unfortunately right, how many times do we have to watch it before we get it

The buyer's remorse is piling up. I'll cheer if Trump does something right, but it will be infrequent.

Expect more of the same too big to jail, too big to fail, no rule of law, just the rule of corrupt men.

Crony Capitalism, Mittens replacing Kerry? I mean why even bother.

New Boss same as the old boss. Why doesn't he appoint Agnes King as Secretary of the Interior? ; )

One must keep in mind that Trump has already done a magnificent thing for America and the world...he kept the ethically diseased, morally corrupt Clintons out of the White House.

We could STILL charge Hillary

We could STILL charge Hillary over her secret server, FBI boss hints: Director says decision to clear Clinton could be reversed over 'improper political considerations'

SOURCE

" . . Chris Wray told the House Judiciary Committee that the FBI Inspector General was looking into whether 'improper political considerations' led to Clinton not being prosecuted, a decision made by James Comey who was later fired by President Donald Trump.

'If he were to conclude that that’s what happened, then I think at that point we’re in a situation where we have to assess what else might need to be done to un-ring that bell if you will,' Wray told members of Congress."
