Hillary C. testifyingIt's unlikely that President Donald Trump will pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton and her cohorts, says a former prosecutor.

There is the private email scandal. There is Uranium One, and other dubious activities surrounding the Clinton Foundation, and there has been a call among many conservatives for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to pursue justice.

"I'm not optimistic that she and her cohorts of criminals be held accountable," observes Abe Hamilton, a former assistant district attorney who is now general counsel at the American Family Association.

Despite the "lock her up" campaign rhetoric from then-candidate Trump, says Hamilton, Trump's view now is he doesn't want to appear to be a "vindictive, retaliatory" president by prosecuting Clinton.    

"And I think the case can be made, very clearly," Hamilton says, "that this is not an exercise in vindictiveness or retaliation. This is an exercise in preserving the rule of law."

But that pursuit of the rule of law looks doubtful, he says, even after James Comey laid out the case for prosecution.
