Video: Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton: Public Would Demand Continuing Investigation of Clinton After Election
OCTOBER 13, 2016
‘There’s going to be continued pressure for a criminal
investigation … no matter who’s elected’
Who: Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch President
Take-Away: “There’s going to be continued pressure for a criminal investigation of what we know went on, no matter who’s elected president.
So I wouldn’t necessarily count out a criminal investigation of Mrs. Clinton even under a Clinton administration because I don’t think the attorney general that Mrs. Clinton would appoint would have much in the way of an argument to stop a special counsel from being appointed. How can that person investigate Mrs. Clinton without obviously a conflict of interest being so apparent that it would require a special counsel to be appointed? I think the public would demand it. And, obviously, under a Trump administration, unless he acts like every other Republican administration has in the past, he seems committed to doing a more thorough investigation as well. So no matter what happens, I think there’s going to be a more significant criminal investigation in the new administration.”
