There’d be something third-world and kleptocratic if Donald Trump had won and then thrown his opponent in jail as he promised. Instead, this morning his transition team is signaling they consider the matter with Hillary Clinton concluded and there will be no effort to push further investigations into her.
The left will, undoubtedly, be disappointed they cannot start screams of “sore winner” against Trump, but this is the right thing to do.
It sets a dangerous precedent for an incoming administration to hound an opponent into prison. And we are all learning about how precedents can be used by future administrations thanks to Barack Obama’s roadmap for Donald Trump to use.
We should all move on now.
