In America ?
President’s do NOT go after (Criminally or Civilly) those they beat in elections, nor do they go after FBI Directors that do NOT do what they want….
Donald Trump isn’t big on what we do in America…
It’s you do what I WANT?
I try to beat you down…..
Interesting for a guy who is the subject of ALL KINDS of civil and criminal investigations HIMSELF, eh?
President Trump wanted to order the Department of Justice (DOJ) to prosecute his 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey, according to The New York Times.
Trump this past spring reportedly told then-White House counsel Don McGahn of his desire to prosecute the pair, prompting McGahn to rebuff the president, saying he did not have the authority to do so.
McGahn later told the president that he did have the authority, but warned that such a request would likely elicit accusations of abuses of power, the Times reported.
McGahn then promised to send a memo outlining the president’s authorities, which he had White House lawyers compose. The memo warned that asking for the prosecutions could lead to Trump’s impeachment or other negative repercussions.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment
McGahn left his role as White House counsel in October after 21 months. Trump chose commercial litigator Pat Cipollone to replace him.
The president continues to privately discuss the possibility of prosecuting Clinton and Comey, the Times reported, citing two people who have spoken to Trump about the matter.
It’s unclear what charges Trump wanted prosecutors to pursue, the newspaper reported.
One of the people who spoke with Trump about his desire for the prosecutions said the president has consistently expressed disappointment with FBI Director Christopher Wray for not aggressively investigating Clinton, according to the Times…..
Both Clinton and Comey were CLEARED of any criminal wrongdoing previously….
Clinton, by Comey …..and THAT seems to burn Trump up….
Trump has been talked out of any action against the two by White House and Justice Dept. lawyers….Trump is also pissed at the current FBI Director for , like Comey?…Not going after Clinton…
One can only image when they write the history books?…. What will be said about Donald J. Trump, Truth, The Law and Politics….and how long a country stood for a President that REALLY should NOT hold the office…
