Conway said on MSNBC on Tuesday morning that Trump is trying to set a tone for Republicans.
That comes after months of Trump nicknaming his Democratic rival "Crooked Hillary", questioning whether the Clinton Foundation is a pay-for-play scheme and raging against the Justice Department for refusing to prosecute her for blending private and official business on her homebrew email server.
If Mr Trump does abandon his campaign vow to appoint a special prosecutor for Mrs Clinton, it will be a dramatic reversal of a position he mentioned nearly daily on the campaign trail, when he dubbed his rival "Crooked Hillary" and crowds at his rallies often chanted: "Lock her up".

Democrat Hillary Clinton has now amassed more than a 2-million popular vote lead over U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, who won the White House by winning where it matters, in states with enough electoral votes to become the country's 45th chief executive.

Nearly 40 percent said they could not give Trump a chance, however, "because of the kind of person he has show himself to be".
The Trump team also put out the word that, contrary to a campaign pledge, Trump will not seek a special prosecutor to look into Clinton's use of private e-mail.
"Perhaps a new meeting will be set up with the @nytimes".
Eileen M. Murphy, the newspaper's senior vice president for communications, said: "We did not change the ground rules at all and made no attempt to".
Trump was to meet on Tuesday with journalists from The New York Times, a spokeswoman said, hours after he posted on Twitter that he was canceling the meeting. Many votes essentially go to waste in states where candidates are guaranteed to win.
But Trump has been promising to unite the country around his presidency, saying repeatedly he will be president of "all Americans".
In Tuesday's tweet, Trump says: "I am seriously considering Dr".
