Trump doesn’t understand how a democracy suppose to work. Like a banana republic, he thinks the DOJ is suppose to go about prosecuting his political enemies at his whim.




WASHINGTON — President Trump told the White House counsel in the spring that he wanted to order the Justice Department to prosecute two of his political adversaries: his 2016 challenger, Hillary Clinton, and the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with the conversation.

The lawyer, Donald F. McGahn II, rebuffed the president, saying that he had no authority to order a prosecution. Mr. McGahn said that while he could request an investigation, that too could prompt accusations of abuse of power. To underscore his point, Mr. McGahn had White House lawyers write a memo for Mr. Trump warning that if he asked law enforcement to investigate his rivals, he could face a range of consequences, including possible impeachment.


Trump is really an unqualified dunce of incredible proportions.

It would be funny if it wasn’t so dangerous having such a foolish, sinister, and clueless person as president.

This is another potential impeachment act that even Trump's White House lawyer warned him that he cant order the DOJ to prosecute anyone, nor investigate anyone.

We hear stories around these parts....whispers from travelers as they scamper in and out of town. Their eyes grow wide with fear and their voices tremble, they lean in close and whisper only three words.

"Orange man bad"

DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND THE PRESIDENT CANT TELL THE DOJ TO INVESTIGATE HIS POLITICAL RIVALS

NO ONE DOES THAT, Nixon tried it and we know what happened to him

He can suggest that but even that would be looked at as a potential major issue.

They do that in Banana republics. That's what Trump has descended to

Don't badmouth banana republics!

However. I can't shake the feeling that he was never going to actually do this, it's probably just a publicity stunt for his LOCK HER UP screaming fanbase.

DOJ confirms no evidence supporting Trump claim Obama wiretapped him
www.usatoday.com...




WASHINGTON — The Justice Department confirmed in a court filing there is no evidence that Trump Tower was targeted for surveillance by the Obama administration — contradicting President Trump's controversial claim first made in March


You believe Trump’s lies

It's good to know that some checks on abuse of power are there.

No, it's not. They have White House memos written to Trump warning him against it.

LINK



Mr. McGahn promised to write a memo outlining the president’s authorities. In the days that followed, lawyers in the White House Counsel’s Office wrote a several-page document in which they strongly cautioned Mr. Trump against asking the Justice Department to investigate anyone. The lawyers laid out a series of consequences. For starters, Justice Department lawyers could refuse to follow Mr. Trump’s orders even before an investigation began, setting off another political firestorm. If charges were brought, judges could dismiss them. And Congress, they added, could investigate the president’s role in a prosecution and begin impeachment proceedings.

Keeping classified information at home is a criminal offense - Hillary should be prosecuted.

Using political propaganda to initiate surveillance against a political opponent is also criminal - Comey should be prosecuted

I don't expect you Will to have the ability to understand
