Why is Trump dropping the case against Hillary Clinton?

Given that Hillary Clinton is now beating Donald Trump by more than 2 million votes nationally, and that she's the second Democratic candidate in recent memory to win the popular vote while losing the presidency, it's hardly surprising that efforts to abolish the Electoral College have seen a jolt of energy since the election. As the votes still being counted, the Cook Political Report says Trump's has his tally at 62.2 million and Clinton's at 64.2 million. She said her email crashed over the weekend after she received more than 20,000 emails.

Asked in the Times interview on November 22 if he was going to take America out of the world's lead of confronting climate change, Trump said, "I have an open mind to it".

Asked during a New York Times interview on November 22 about reports that he no longer wanted to prosecute Clinton, Trump said: "I want to move forward, I don't want to move back".

He said he saw no problems in working out any potential conflicts of interest between his companies and his White House post. "In theory, I could run my business perfectly and then run the country perfectly. I have an open mind to it", Trump said, adding that clean air and "crystal clear water" are vitally important. But he also said he was "phasing that out now" and passing business operations on to his grown children.

Good. Climate change is a clear and present danger to the health of the planet, with a widespread consensus of the world's leading climate experts believing that the problem is extremely serious and that substantial global action is urgently needed.

President-elect Donald Trump finally met with editors and reporters at the influential New York Times newspaper on Tuesday, one of the most highly-regarded media instutions in the United States.

Trump has been meeting with a slew of his former critics as he looks to build his administration.

Trump's reversal on further investigations of the Clintons raised questions about the gulf between his fiery campaign promises and what he intends to do as the nation's 45th president.

"Lock her up" was a common chant among supporters at his rallies.

Conway suggested Trump's new posture is aimed at Republicans in Congress who have relentlessly investigated the former secretary of state, including whether classified information passed through her private email server and how she acted in connection with the raid on the US compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

The group has already held a call with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to argue that while they have not found conclusive evidence of a hack, the pattern in their results merits an independent review.

In terms of national security, Trump promised to ask the Department of Defense to develop a plan to protect American infrastructure "from cyber attacks and all other forms of attacks". As protestors across the country continue to voice their disgust with Trump's ghoulish transition team and his hard stance on immigration, the man himself has even been letting down those who got him into office.
