As Donald Trump starts to make his way to the Oval Office, he’s already mellowed down. Trump is trying to smoothen into the role of a statesman. And he also showed some signs of wisdom. He is already backtracking on one of his major campaign promises. A top adviser cleared- Trump is going to shy away from reopening Clinton FBI email investigation.

Revelations by sources

Tuesday morning, Mika Brzezinski reported on MSNBC that a source in Trump’s team had made an important revelation. The Trump administration does not intend to reopen Clinton FBI email investigation either for her role during Clinton’s stint as Secretary of State. The Clinton Foundation was given a clean chit too.

In his only interaction with the media after his historic win Trump said to CBS on the FBI email investigation “I’m going to think about it, I feel that I want to focus on jobs, I want to focus on health care, I want to focus on the border and immigration and doing a really great immigration bill.” According to him the Clinton’s may have “did some bad things” but they were “good people” above all. “I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them, they’re, they’re good people. I don’t want to hurt them,” reports The Independent. This is in sharp contrast to his and his supporters war cry of “Lock her up.”

The FBI had earlier investigated whether Clinton using a private email server for official purposes amounted to a criminal offense. The conclusion reached earlier this summer was that Clinton and her staff had been “extremely careless.” But it was not criminal behavior.

Just days before the Election Day FBI Director played his part in the electoral process by revealing that new information was available about the investigation. The new evidence concerned, Anthony Weiner, it was later revealed. Weiner is a disgraced former congressman. He is also the former husband Huma Abedin, a top aide to Clinton.
