Trump: ‘I’m Very Frustrated’ I Can’t Order DOJ To Investigate Hillary

Daily Caller: President Donald Trump said Thursday that he is “frustrated” he can’t order around the Justice Department.

“But you know the saddest thing, because I’m the President of the United States I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. I am not supposed to be involved with the FBI,” Trump told WMAL host Larry O’Connor. “I’m not supposed to be doing the kinds of things I would love to be doing and I’m very frustrated by it.”

“Why aren’t they going after Hillary Clinton with her emails and with the dossier, and the kind of money?” Trump added. “Now, maybe they are, but as president, and I think you understand this, as a president you are not supposed to be involved in that process.”

After this interview with the Washington-area conservative radio host, Trump tweeted out his frustration.

“Donna Brazile just stated the DNC RIGGED the system to illegally steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders. Bought and paid for by Crooked H,” Trump wrote. “This is real collusion and dishonesty. Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering – where is our Justice Department?”  more

SNIP:  Where is our Justice Department? That’s a good question.
Maybe we should tell Sessions that Hillary is involved with MS-13, or traveling with large amounts of cash across state lines. Maybe that will raise his interest in prosecuting her.

29 Comments on Trump: ‘I’m Very Frustrated’ I Can’t Order DOJ To Investigate Hillary

  1. The attorney general serves at the pleasure of the President, as all cabinet level appointees.
    If an appointee is unable or unwilling to perform at the level of competency expected in the position they can be dismissed.
    From the outside it appears Sessions has met both criteria.

  2. No, maybe he *can’t* tell them what to do…but he’s in the position to hire someone who *will* do what needs to be done.

  3. Somebody has to find out what leverage the deep state has on Sessions and leak the hell out of it. I am starting to wonder if Sessions has been under deep state control since he started supporting Trump. Come on, Alabama…you have to know something we don’t.

  4. I kind of thought that Trump’s lunch meeting with Sessions the other day was to feel him out about all this. Seems he didn’t hear what he wanted to. Sessions isn’t helping himself when continually stonewalling the President. Wish I knew just what is going on.

  5. OTOH, a case could be made that PDT is playing innocent bystander to the hilt, so that when the hammer drops, the media and the TV nightclowns will be gobsmacked, like they were when Comey got the axe. I can dream, can’t I?

    “Now, *maybe they are,* but as president, and I think you understand this, as a president you are not supposed to be involved in that process.”

  6. Since Sessions seems to be OK with bringing back large-scale civil forfeitures, wouldn’t the Clintons make a sweet target?

  7. It’s hard for me to understand the intricacies of the government. If it were up to me, I’d arrest them all.
    I follow some guys on Twitter who are always trying to explain those “chess moves”. Me? I’m yet to learn how to play checkers.

    I still have faith in God that He’s directing President Trump and his administration.

  8. it boils down to this, lead, follow or get the hell out of the way. Sessions is not doing his job. He’s making a lot of smoke about MS 13 an other issues but evading issues that are important to the general welfare of the citizenry. IF he can’t or will not do the job then fire his ass and get someone who will.

  9. I like Trump, but I’m not buying this one. He may not be able to order them to do anything, but he sure as hell can fire AG and deputy AG as well as FBI director. Bring in someone who will do the job and who will clean up those departments.

  10. Apparently Sessions told Congress he had recused himself on anything Russia including Uranium One. Rosenstein isn’t going to investigate himself.
    Trump needs to fire Sessions and Rosenstein and get someone in there that can do their job that aren’t compromised. Better yet Sessions should step up and be an honorable man that everyone thought he was and resign. I don’t think Rosenstein has an honorable bone in his body, so he just needs to be fired.

  11. Sessions is either a Deep State plant, as seems increasingly likely…
    Or he’s just another longtime D.C. narcissist who accepted the AG position as the “highest honor a grateful Nation can bestow to cap his lifelong career of distinguished public service”. Yadayada.

    The kind interpretation is Sessions sees this as his pre-retirement Glamor Post, like an Ambassadorship.
    The cynical take is he’s Swamp- dirty, and his AG post was a brilliant Deep State success to block Trump while also setting Trump up for scandals/leakscharges/impeachment.
    Check and Mate.

    I’m disturbed seeing my President seemingly reduced to plaintive Tweets like some helpless civilian observer.

    The AG needs to act (including dismissing Mueller), resign for “health reasons”, or be fired. I would fire Rosenstein first. Keep firing as necessary until the Obama Deep State people are gone. Make the Night Janitor the Acting AG if need be.

  12. Firing sessions is no big deal. DJT already has a letter of resignation, all the President has to do is date it and Sessions is done. I’m not sure who plays Jack’s or dress up in his office during the day. Go Jeff–the farther, the better!!

    I am with you. They are not going to broadcast an investigation. I think they are laying the groundwork to drop a house on Hillary.

    There seems to be a steady stream of stories being released, or re-released, concerning Hillary’s corruption. The e-mails, GPS dossier, Uranium One, etc.

    Even Clinton loyalist (?) Donna the Water Buffalo dumped on her and her campaign corruption. True to Clinton form, less than 1% of the money raised by the DNC under Hillary’s control went to the states. She spent the rest on here own campaign. Sounds like she ran the DNC like the Clinton Foundation.

    Bill Clinton was in St. Louis this week showcasing Clinton Foundation work in the area. I would not be surprised it cost the foundation more money for him to show up than the foundation actually gave to the projects. It was a photo op.

    At the same time, her biggest supporters in Hollywierd are under assault for sexual deviancy.

    I think the Clintons are trying to get ahead of the implosion. She isn’t well liked, and without having political power (cover),I expect more rats will jump ship to save themselves.

    Call me an optimist.

  14. THIS WOULD / DID NOT STOP OBAMA. Only this frustrates Republicans.

    I say get an assembly line, and fire each person who refuses to do their job. The President can fire unlimited numbers of Att. Gen.

  15. Maybe it’s time to start going outside DC to fill these jobs. If Sessions isn’t working with the President burn him and replace him with an effective AG from a conservative state. Replace the head of the FBI with a SAIC from a successful field office. Tell Bannon to turn up the heat to get the new arrivals in their seats and have them bring whoever they want to backstop them as well. Start moving swamp dwellers out to Alasks, Idaho or Guam.

  16. Sorry but screw Trey Gowdy. He’s a showboater that concludes nothing. I’d like to see Trump select Andy McCarthy. But I’m open to other suggestions.

  17. Two theories keep floating: Sessions is deep state OR big happenings re big fish going down w everyone including Mueller working to drain the swamp.

    Bottom line is this…. Sessions ain’t going anywhere. Grassley et al made it clear there wouldn’t be another AG nominee voted out of committee & the added insurance of Congress remaining in session so no recess appts (same thing will happen in Dec/all future recesses)
    Further, who of any consequence that will take down the crooks (to include congress members) will ever be approved?

    I can hope this is all a ruse and Sessions/Mueller are doing the right thing, but who really knows.
