NEW YORK • US President-elect Donald Trump said he had no intention of pressing for an investigation into Mrs Hillary Clinton's use of a private e-mail server as secretary of state or financial acts committed by the Clinton Foundation.
During campaign rallies, Mr Trump often fired up his supporters by calling for investigations.
"I want to move forward," Mr Trump said. "I don't want to hurt the Clintons... She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all." He added: "I think it would be very, very divisive for the country."
While he said that "we will have people that do things" - perhaps a reference to the FBI or Republicans who might continue to press for prosecutions in the e-mail case or of the foundation - Mr Trump made clear that he would not seek to pursue an investigation himself nor make it a priority after he assumes office.
