Conway: Clinton Email Probes May Persist

("Good Morning America")

President-elect Donald Trump has said he no longer wants to focus on investigations into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, but senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said Friday law enforcement officials in his administration could still continue their probes.

"Donald Trump made it very clear last week as the president-elect that he's moved on from that," Conway told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on the "Good Morning America" program. "He has said to The New York Times on the record he thinks the Clinton's have suffered enough."

But then again, she continued, "the Department of Justice, the different committees, the FBI perhaps can take a different look, but nobody expects and nobody is talking about that right now."

However, the public may not be willing to put Clinton's investigation in the past.

On Thursday, Trump was greeted by chants of "lock her up" during his thank-you rally in Cincinnati. Trump often heard the same chants during his rallies during the presidential campaign, after saying he'd have his attorney general appoint a special prosecutor in the Clinton case.

Also on Thursday, Conway sidestepped a question from Stephanopoulos about whether a Trump comment last week concerning "millions" of people voting illegally was true.

Trump, in a tweet last week, said that in addition to winning the Electoral College, he also won the popular vote "if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally." Clinton holds the popular vote by more than 2.3 million votes.

"Many people are questioning the victory," she told Stephanopoulos, without directly answering whether his statement was "true."

"You got people spending millions of dollars, wasting money and time in the Clinton and [Jill] Stein camp in Wisconsin, Michigan, tried in Pennsylvania to recount, so not everybody has accepted the election results," Conway said.

She added that Trump has spoken to several people this month, including Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, about the number of illegal votes that may have been cast, "and I believe that he bases his information on that."

When Stephanopoulos asked her again if Trump's statement was true, she responded that "he's been receiving information about the irregularities and about the illegal votes, particularly from sources, officials like Kris Kobach as I mentioned, but he is messaging to his supporters and to the rest of the country the way he feels."

Meanwhile, Conway said Clinton's supporters haven't been able to "get past the grief, denial, and anger stages and into the acceptance stages" when it comes to her loss to Trump.

She does believe Trump will reach additional Americans, as he's promised to "be the president of all Americans, including those that did not vote for him."
