FIGHTING BACK: Following Hillary Joining Recount Effort, Trump Senior Adviser Says Trump Hasn’t Ruled Out Criminal Investigation Into Email


trA senior Donald Trump adviser is calling Hillary Clinton’s decision to join a recount effort “incredible” and noting that the president-elect has not ruled out pursuing a criminal investigation into his former Democratic rival.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told CNN’s “State of the Nation” that Trump has not ruled out a criminal probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, even though Trump recently indicated he’d rather not do so.

Conway said, “He’s been incredibly gracious and magnanimous to Secretary Clinton at a time when, for whatever reason, her folks are saying they will join in a recount to try to somehow undo the 70-plus electoral votes that he beat her by.”

She added, “The idea that we are going to drag this out now where the president-elect has been incredibly magnanimous to the Clintons and to the Obamas is pretty incredible.”

Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to condemn the Green-Party backed recount effort as “a scam.” Clinton’s team joined the effort in Wisconsin after Green Party nominee Jill Stein filed paperwork formally requesting a recount.



  1. The Democrats are going “double or nothing” in asking for a recount when the difference is well below what has ever been reversed. Along with trying to pressure electors to be unfaithful, this will create a situation in which the Republicans are likely to be totally disinterested in working with the Democrats (e.g. abolish the filibuster rule, so anything the Republicans agree on gets enacted).

  2. #1 If in the final result on Nov 13, Trump got 377 Electoral College vote and Hillary Clinton got 161, even if one of the States had a wrong count, there’s no way The Devil can win.

    #2 Besides, Trump can easily ask for a recount for all the States she “won”. Deducting the dead people, illegal immigrants, voters voting for her more than once and voting machines that auto-changed to Hillary, she’ll CERTAINLY WITHOUT A DOUBT lose these States too.

    #3 Gedolei Yisrael and Mekubalim predicted that Trump will win.

  3. Trump first tried to make nice and pet a leopard. People have to learn that playing with ferocious jungle beasts is dangerous and futile. Now you see how vicious this Hillary hypocrite is. Prepare for her leftist lapdogs of lawyers, media ,scientists, professors and other choleras to keep banging drums over our heads forever. Get out of our lives already Hillary. And stay out !

  4. While at it, let them also recount all the Clinton foundation’s income and expenditures, the names of donors and recipients, as well as the beneficiaries of Hillary’s political connections and pressures exerted in return for “donations”.
    After that, try counting the felonies she committed and the facts she omitted, and decide on the number of locks she should be behind, with keys thrown away.

  5. Yes #7…the target of the criminal investigation should be the Clinton Foundation. Just because she is a sore loser, doesn’t mean that she has a right to attempt to disrupt planning for the new administration. Trump was magnanimous. Hillary and Bill don’t know how to appreciate when someone else realizes that “the Clintons have been hurt enough”. The only one who understands this is Obama. Despite the fact that his policies will have no legacy, he personally will leave as a mensch and that will be his legacy. He appreciated the fact that George W. Bush provided for a smooth and orderly transition…and he is returning the favor. Now, realistically, if it were Hillary in the White House now…does anybody believe that she would be that decent? Don’t bet on it.

  6. Arye,

    What math are you using to come to the conclusion that trump got 377 electoral votes? What states are you putting in his column that no one else is? (That I’ve seen)

  7. to #3, you are a doctrinaire fool quoting leftist talking points. bush and gore didn’t threaten each other with prison, nor Obama and McCain or Romney, because none of them were involved in FBI level criminal behavior.

    hey, #3, are you so forgiving because you are also hiding something?

  8. Trump is threating prison in retaliation for a perceived attack on him. He couldnt care less about the law. All he cares about is his over inflated ego. Today he blathers about illegal votes that cost him the popular vote without providing a shard of evidence. The man is mad and unfit for the office of the presidency. Pray to Hashem that we survive for years of this unstable individual at the helm of the greatest country in the world.

  9. #3

    I agree with you. Donald Trump reminds me of Pharaoh. It seems to me Donald Trump thinks he is divine. People focus too much on Donald Trump’s grandiose bravado and scurrilous political statements and too little on his terrifying personality. He seems to be an mercurial megalomaniac who has repeatedly demonstrated his penchant for publicly making rash and dangerous statements.

    Anyone with sechel who supports Donald Trump is deluding themselves, perhaps because he or she is blinded by anger and hatred for Hillary Clinton.


    What is your source?


    According to the following Wikipedia entry,_2016#Results

    the current projected tally is 306 Electoral College votes for Donald Trump vs 232 Electoral College votes for Hillary Clinton.

    Based on that, it seems unlikely the recounts many in the news media are bandying about will make enough of a difference to change the outcome of the presidential election.

    Neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton seem like a Noahide to me. They both embrace liberal democracy, albeit different versions. I voted for neither candidate. Despite that it seems to me that Hillary Clinton is not a mercurial megalomaniac.
