Thread: Trump Suggests DoJ shouldn't indict Republicans close to an election

    Default Trump Suggests DoJ shouldn't indict Republicans close to an election

    This one is just...horrible. Even by this wacko's standards:

    Trump criticized Sessions today
    because the DoJ indicted two sitting Congressional Republicans a few months before the election:

    via Twitter:
    Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.
    This is in apparent reference to Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins-
    two of his earliest backers in Congress
    . Collins was charged with 13 counts of securities fraud, wire fraud and making false statements related to an alleged insider trading scheme.
    Hunter was indicted for using campaign funds for personal use and were charged with counts of wire fraud, falsifying records, campaign finance violations and conspiracy.

    He's already pressured the DoJ to go after his political enemies and former opponents. This is also the same guy who has repeatedly argued that the Mueller investigation is plagued by political bias. Let that one sink in for a moment.

    This isn't what draining the swamp looks like. This is what corruption looks like.

    Hopefully we are nearing the beginning of the end. This dude's off his rocker. Blue Lives Matter unless they prosecute trumps buddies. His sycophants won't mind though. They are morally flexible.

    That tweet- alone- should warrant impeachment.

    Yeah. At this point in time he's so drunk on his own sense of importance that he actually thought that tweet would be a good idea. I can't believe I now live in a country where the President feels comfortable directing the Justice Department not to indict anyone of the majority party before an election.

    I can't believe I live in a country where about 1/3 of the voters are likely okay with that fact.

    Seriously! The republicans don't have enough patriots for it to work out though. Maybe they'll swap it up later if/when it becomes politically feasible to turn on trump.

    If they have even an ounce of dignity and patriotism, they'll stand up and start holding this man accountable. This is NOT okay. And there's no way to spin this- it's naked political corruption.
