Trump Wanted DOJ To Prosecute Clinton, Comey

3

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 now-former 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.

Last year, Trump’s lawyers privately requested that the DOJ investigate Comey for mishandling sensitive government information and for his role in the Clinton email investigation, according to the Times. The request was denied.

  1. That’s because that Republican turned Rino, Jeff Sessions undermined the President and stabbed him in the back at every turn. Mr. Sessions took the mandate of the American voters and flushed it down the toilet. He is a disgrace and will go down as one of the worst AG’s in modern history.

  2. Y is it the democrats never get take to task for abuse of power Lois Lerner or Hillary or obama but trump has to care what THEY Think
