BREAKING: Trump Tried To Get DOJ To Prosecute Clinton And Comey

Filed in Featured, National by on November 20, 2018

His own White House lawyer, Don McGahn, warned him that such behavior could be impeachable. From the NYTimes:

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.

    When the wave of resignations hits, all jobs like McGahn’s will be staffed by the doorman from Trump Tower. Then he’ll get his prosecutiuon.

    This. It’s an epiphany. It explains the whole “union” vote.

    You fools need some mental health help.

  4. RE Vanella says:

    Yeah, nothing says mental stability like boilerplate anonymous trolling. You got us.

  5. Donviti says:

    It’s refreshing to have a leader with such a firm grasp of the constitution.

  6. Alby says:

    The only thing he has a firm grasp on is his next cheeseburger.

    Well, if anyone is most responsible for putting Trump in the White House, it’s Killary Clinton. So if Trump actually does “lock her up”, why not relish the karma and irony.

    • Alby says:

      If by “responsible” you mean “got 3 million more votes than,” you’re accurate for once. Hyperbole indeed.

      • RE Vanella says:

        “Killary!” Hahaha. Good one, bruv. You got us…

      • delacrat says:

        C’mon alby, Electoral College or no, against Trump it would not have been close with someone other than Mrs. NAFTAman.

        • Alby says:

          I believe that too, but I can’t state it as fact. Too many moving parts. There’s little question that GOP control of the Pennsylvania, Michigan and especially Wisconsin state legislatures made voting more difficult for people who move frequently — poor people, mainly. That played a role.

          I differ from a lot of people who blame racism, because in my view the racism is a constant. Those inclined to think of POC as invaders out to kill white culture don’t vacillate on that from one election to the next. So I think the moribund economic conditions in the Rust Belt and the Farm Belt absolutely played a role.

          The Clinton taint is gone. Why look back?

        • RE Vanella says:

          There’s a phrase going around the internet. Dumb Dumb left.

          Jimmy Dore. Die hard Greens. Abandoned electorial political.

          They use childish portmanteau and memes.

          Folks, we got him!

    I also like how after I embarrass him over and over again, he just puts @alby in his reply.

    Haha. You can’t ignore me, motherfucker.
