This is interesting. Neera Tanden, who was an adviser to Hillary Clinton the first time she ran for the presidency and who now runs a liberal think tank in DC, floated the accusation today that Donald Trump is threatening to put Hillary Clinton in prison because of the recount challenge. First though, she said he lied on the campaign trail when he threatened to lock Clinton up. But now, she claims he’s threatening to lock Clinton up over this stupid pointless recount. All three states in question now have validated Trump’s win. Her accusation seems very contrived to me.
I have not heard Trump claim this yet. Although, I have to say, I would indeed relish him going after Clinton. He has said he wasn’t going after her. Word has it though, he is having his ambassadors push foreign countries to look into dealings with the Clinton Foundation. But he didn’t even really need to do that. It’s already being done by multiple countries and the flow of money to the Clintons has completely dried up suddenly. Trump’s Chief of Staff said yesterday that he is ‘not seeking methods and ways to persecute and prosecute Hillary Clinton’.
From the Daily Mail:
A former Hillary Clinton staffer claimed Monday that Donald Trump is plotting to put his White House rival in jail because of her involvement in the Wisconsin recount.
Neera Tanden, an adviser to Clinton the first time she ran for president, said Trump was ‘lying’ on the campaign trail when he said he’d lock his general election opponent up.
‘Then, last week, he said he wasn’t going to prosecute her, and now he’s threatening to prosecute her if she takes part in a recount,’ Tanden, head of the liberal think tank Center for American Progress, asserted on MSNBC.
She also mocked the Trump camp for pushing back on the recount that Democrats, including Clinton’s lawyer, have said will not have the effect of removing Trump from office.
‘If people have confidence in the election, then I don’t know what the worry is,’ she said. ‘If the Trump campaign thinks these numbers are accurate, president-elect Trump thinks these things are accurate, then I don’t know why he’s so anxious about it, why he needs to attack Hillary.’
Why in the world would anyone believe Tanden? She heads up the Soros-funded, Polesta-connected Center for American Progress. She didn’t get where she is by telling the truth. Trump is upset about the recount and insulted. I can’t say I blame him. He released a series of angry tweets on it, but he didn’t threaten Clinton. I think they are floating this to stir the pot and to bait Trump into an angry response.
Although Trump himself won’t go after Clinton, the door was left open for the DOJ to go after her. Senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said on CNN that Trump wouldn’t rule out an investigation in his talk with the Times while stating, “It’s just not his focus right now. I think he’s being quite magnanimous, and at the same time, he is not undercutting at all the authority and the autonomy of the Department of Justice, of the FBI, of the House committees,” Conway stated. One way or another, whether on US soil, abroad or both, Clinton is going to have legal woes over her corruption. No one deserves it more.
