OK, This is total speculation.
But why now? Why did Trump suddenly announce that he would not peruse prosecuting Hillary? This after pledging over and over again that he would put Hillary in jail, to the thunderous roars of his rabid supporters, throughout his campaign. Why didn't he wait until sometime after he was sworn in?
It certainly went over like a lead balloon with his supporters. You'd think, that had he decided not to go after Hillary, he would of just let it gradually fall off the radar. Rather than risk disappointing the legions of bloodthirsty pitbulls that swept him into office, before he even spent one day as El Presidente.
Could it be? That only a day after he announced that he would not be going after Hillary , CNN, the Huffington Post and other news outlets would be coming out with articles about computer experts calling for Hillary to demand a recount…that there is strong evidence that voting machines were hacked in important swing states. Could this have anything to do with the rationale for letting Hillary off the hook now?
Or could this actually be construed as a backhanded threat by theTrump team to Hillary that "You're in the clear now. But don't mess with us. Go on about your business, we're not coming after you now. But don't get any ideas about challenging the election."
Could that be the what's afoot here? Just speculating!!
