Asked by Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday if Democrats supporting a recount effort in certain states may have an impact in terms of putting another Clinton email investigation back on the table, Democrat pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said it should not. However, he also added, “I’m hoping that Donald Trump will allow Jeff Sessions as attorney general” to make the decision whether or not to go forward with a new investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

The topic came up while discussing the ramifications of Clinton’s support of Jill Stein’s recount efforts, which many see as an attempt to undermine the coming Trump presidency even before it gets started.

Caddell said he understood the dynamics of the decision and that one would not want to be perceived as doing it simply to “persecute” a former political opponent. “Meanwhile,” said Caddell, “we’ve got real problems here in a country where the vast majority know that we have two standards of justice – one for the rich and powerful and one for everyone else.”

“My hope is in order to de-politicize this situation is that the Attorney General and the President will make clear that there’s evidence of things that need to be investigated and get a special counsel outside of Washington who will do a job as a total professional person and take politics out of it,” said Caddell.
