Conway appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," and said that although Clinton "has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don't find her to be honest and trustworthy," it would be peachy if Trump can "let her heal."
In order to heal, she needs to know she did something wrong. The Clintons think that doing anything self-serving, no matter what, cannot be wrong, so healing is a non sequitur.
"I think when the President-elect, who's also the head of your party . . . tells you before he's even inaugurated, he doesn't wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone, and content," she said.
Remember when Trump said during his campaign that if he were elected president he'd get his attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate "Crooked Hillary?" Remember when Trump said to Hillary during a debate that if he was president "you'd be in jail?" Remember how when the crowds cheered "Lock her up" Trump appeared to encourage the outcry?
"Look, I think he's thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the President of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign aren't among them," Conway said.
That's a slick way of saying: "Look, he had to pump up his base to keep them on board. Now that he's won, he can do whatever he wants."
Fortunately, Trump's broken promise doesn't prevent congressional Republicans from opening investigations and referring them to the Justice Department.
Let's hope that Trump at least tries to keep his other promises.
