Trump Aide: Hillary Clinton May Still Be Investigated

President-elect Donald Trump's campaign manager revealed on Dec. 2 that Trump may still appoint law enforcement officials to investigate Hillary Clinton.

After Trump told the New York Times on-record that "the Clintons have suffered enough," many assumed the President-elect had decided against investigating Clinton's classified email scandal, which he had promised to do on the campaign trail.

Yet in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," Kellyanne Conway implied the issue is still one Trump has not totally shifted on.

"There will be officials who are in charge of such things in the Trump administration who may look at that again," Conway explained.

While she agrees that Trump is, as he said, now "moving on to focus on the future, not the past," she said that "of course the Department of Justice, the different committees, the FBI perhaps, can take a different look."

"I would not be able to say' whether Trump's budding administration would encourage it," she continued. "Nobody expects – nobody's talking about that right now."

Her comments come only a few days after Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said he wants investigations into Clinton's scandals as Secretary of State to continue, The Hill reports.

“We can’t just simply let this go,” Chaffetz said in an interview on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom" on Nov. 30.

“If the president or president-elect wants to pardon Secretary Hillary Clinton for the good of the nation, that is their option," Chaffetz added. "But I have a duty and an obligation to actually fix the problems that were made with Hillary Clinton.”

“A political election does not extinguish the need for transparency, truth and justice,” Chaffetz later explained. "We want to get to the truth."

“There are tens of thousands of documents the State Department still has not turned over to the United States Congress that should be available," he added. "There’s issues relating to the Department of Justice. I still think that the federal government needs to provide to Congress the records which we sought.”
