Graham calls for special counsel to prove Clinton on Russian Federation ties

Graham calls for special counsel to prove Clinton on Russian Federation ties”

Trump wants the Justice Department and FBI to investigate Hillary Clinton's campaign, in response to a newly published book excerpt from former acting Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile.

First lady Melania Trump looks on as President Donald Trump speaks with reporters before departing the White House for a trip to Asia, Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, in Washington. "And a lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me". The order involved a former Federal Bureau of Investigation informant who was associated with a high-profile case involving Moscow and graft.

TRUMP: But, you know, the saddest thing is that, because I'm the president of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. The former acting attorney general demanded that Trump stop asking the DOJ to go after people he doesn't like, tweeting: "DOJ not a tool for POTUS to use to go after his enemies and protect his friends".

The president's instinctive reaction to the NY attack was typical Trump bluster.

Trump's complaints about the DOJ come as tensions mount over a special counsel investigation into whether, or to what extent, Russian Federation may have interfered in the 2016 election. "They should be looking at [Tony] Podesta and all of that dishonesty", Trump said of the Justice Department. I'm not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing.

Feinstein said., "Yes, it troubles me very much". The president's still angry at James Comey. And today, this afternoon, the president said he was unhappy about the sentence a military court gave service member Bowe Bergdahl for deserting his post in Afghanistan. Bergdahl got no prison time. The president tweeted that punishment was a, quote, "complete and total disgrace".

Actually, what the American public deserves is a president who understands the importance of maintaining a Justice Department free from political influence in deciding who to investigate and prosecute. Is that wall eroding?

Trump also cited an Obama-era with Russian Federation, the loss of some of Clinton's emails during her tenure as secretary of State and "the Comey fix" - apparently meaning former FBI Director James Comey's decision to clear Clinton of charges during the election - as sources of outrage.

The mining company, Uranium One merged in 2007 with UrAsia Energy in Canada. "Lets go FBI & Justice Dept".

But it's important to know the Justice Department did not drop that case against Sheriff Arpaio.

Trump's anxiety is understandable; that does not excuse his conduct, which has been both to underscore that he recognizes it is improper for him as president to order up an investigation of his election opponent - and then to proceed to, in effect, do just that.
