Schweizer: Trump Announcement on Clinton Investigation ‘Deeply Disturbing,’ ‘Definition of a Rigged System’

On Tuesday’s edition of “The Kelly File” on the Fox News Channel, Breitbart editor at large Peter Schweizer, author of  “Clinton Cash,” criticized President Elect Donald Trump’s statement that he doesn’t want to prosecute Hillary Clinton.

Schweizer said, “I think it’s deeply disturbing. Look, he shouldn’t be talking about this at all. It’s not his job. I was on your program earlier this year, Megyn, talking about how inappropriate it would be for President Obama to intervene in an investigation. It is equally inappropriate for a President Elect and later President Donald Trump to do the same. If he wants to pardon her at the tail end of an investigation, if the Department of Justice decides that they’re not going to prosecute, they are fine to do that, but the FBI is undergoing an investigation right now, and the President Elect should not be telling them to halt their investigation.”

Schweizer added that Trump was “overstepping” his role, and President Obama would have been hammered by the right for doing likewise. And “If Hillary Clinton had won in November, I think it’s safe to assume that she would not have been investigated for the Clinton Foundation. She has lost in November, and now it seems that Donald Trump does not want her to be investigated for the Clinton Foundation. That is the definition of a rigged system.”
