President-elect Donald Trump says he wants to move on from years of investigations of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

He tells The New York Times that prosecuting the Clintons “would be very, very divisive for the country.” He says he doesn’t want “to hurt the Clintons,” adding that he doesn’t think his supporters will be disappointed once he explains that “we, in many ways, will save our country.”

The Times is publishing excerpts via Twitter of its interview Tuesday with Trump. The newspaper didn’t immediately release a transcript.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway earlier in the day told MSNBC that Trump was sending a signal to congressional Republicans to abandon years of investigations into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the deadly raid on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya.

President-elect Trump also says there’s “some connectivity” between humans and climate change.

He tells The New York Times on Tuesday that “clean air is vitally important” and he’s keeping an open mind about whether to pull the United States out of a multinational agreement on climate change.

He appeared to break dramatically with his own previous remarks that climate change was a hoax.

The Times reported that he said Tuesday, “I think there is some connectivity. Some, something. It depends on how much.”
