One news headline, that has many of those who supported Trump throughout his candidacy pulling their hair out in rage this weekend, is the one that stated Trump would not prosecute Hillary Clinton for her illegal use of a private email server during her time as the Secretary of State.
At face value, this is quite frustrating and annoying, as it goes against one of Trump’s campaign promises to hold Hillary accountable for some of her past crimes committed which broke many laws that others of lesser position have been charged for.
What people are missing is a strategic play that Trump has initiated and enacted. Trump has extended hardcore Hillary-supporting liberals an olive branch and offer of peace that he himself never actually possessed.
The reality is, the President of the United States DOES NOT and CANNOT legally prosecute anyone. This is not his job and not within his power. Donald Trump stating that he will not prosecute Hillary Clinton should come as no shock to anyone, as he cannot even do this!
In the process, he has gained an advantage and looks presidential. Meanwhile, his recently appointedAttorney General, Jeff Sessions, is free to act as if he is not being “politically” motivated or influenced. He is fully in his right to pursue charges against Hillary if he deems it appropriate.
Given the fact that Jeff Sessions is known as the number one constitutional attack dog, it is likely that he WILL do the right thing and go after Hillary for her past crimes.
Also, what this does is defuses the possibility of President Obama pardoning Hillary Clinton in the 57 days he has remaining, an opportunity that is less likely to be used if Trump himself takes a soft stance against Hillary in the short time that remains for Obama to act.
The lying mainstream media, who has recently come out with a full blown assault on the alternative media and are flailing about in their dying gasps, is doing everything they can to try and put a wedge in between Trump and his supporters. The spin on this story is just another example of this, as they know the facts just as well as I do.
Yet, the facts still remain just the same. As I’ve always said, do your own research and stop and think about the news you are reading before you allow it to influence you.
The MSM and the elites who control them are the same ones who have religiously attacked us in the precious metals community for decades. We know their tricks well and we will be here, exposing them every step of the way, for as long as we can in this eternal fight for freedom and liberty.
