"The balance of this next president is going to come in re-establishing the independence of the Department of Justice," Issa told Fox News Channel, referring to the Clinton case. "If he doesn't do it, Congress will certainly push for that."
In New York Times interview published Tuesday, Trump said he doesn’t intend to pursue criminal charges against Clinton because "she went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways."
"He [Trump] doesn’t say she [Clinton] is innocent. The decision has to be made by professionals," the lawmaker added.
During their often-bitter campaign, Trump said that as president he would appoint a special prosecutor to probe Clinton’s email practices while serving as the United States’ top diplomat from 2009 to 2013.
