There are two groups suffering from crushing disappointment this week. The mainstream media and hardcore Hillary haters — I know there is some overlap, but not much.

President-elect Donald Trump has announced he won’t appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s “homebrew email server.”

The media is particularly incensed because they won’t be able to lie about what Trump actually said when he made the offhand comment in the second presidential debate.

During the a discussion about Clinton’s willful violation of the law concerning classified information, and the FBI’s political cover-up, Trump said, “But if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation.”

That statement is perfectly legal and preserves the chain of command and the rule of law  — two concepts almost completely foreign to the current Obama administration and a prospective Hillary administration.

Hillary responded with more evasions, denials, and redirection until she said, “It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” At which point Trump lost patience and interrupted with, “Because you would be in jail.”

As a result of the special prosecutor, which is an assumption on his part, but no different than the Obama administration’s assumption that in any controversy involving police, it’s the police who are wrong.

Yet the media persists in characterizing this as Trump during the campaign vowed to put his Democratic presidential rival in jail over the matter, which is simply not true.

The other groups disappointed are Trump voters and Bernie bros who were hoping Hillary would be wearing orange pantsuits in the very near future.

Trump has proven them both wrong.

He’s not the vindictive, petty, small-minded vengeance-monger that the media delights in portraying him as. She lost the election.

Trump knows if he is going to “drain the swamp” he has bigger fish to fry, to mix a few metaphors. There are more important priorities for his administration. That’s why MSNBC reports Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager, announced “Donald Trump is suggesting that the president-elect is going to help Hillary Clinton ‘heal’ and not pursue a probe of her private email server."

Trump is setting a tone for congressional Republicans by refraining from calling for more investigations. She says that "he doesn't wish to pursue these charges."

It’s a good decision even if the media loses a dead horse it really enjoys beating.
