NEW YORK (WCMH) — President-elect Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said he would not be pursuing charges against Hillary Clinton related to her private email server or her foundation.

“I think when the President-elect, who’s also the head of your party, tells you before he’s even inaugurated that he doesn’t wish to pursue these charges, it sends a very strong message, tone, and content” to fellow Republicans, Conway said in an interview on MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe.”

The decision is a break from his campaign promise to have the former democratic presidential nominee imprisoned, according to CNN.

Conway said Clinton “still has to face the fact that a majority of Americans don’t find her to be honest or trustworthy,” but added that “if Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that’s a good thing to do.”

“Look, I think he’s thinking of many different things as he prepares to become the President of the United States, and things that sound like the campaign are not among them,” she added.
