Trump raged and swore at aides because his enemies aren’t being prosecuted: report

There are two key ways a president can abuse the Justice Department and federal prosecutorial powers: he can protect his friends, and he can go after his enemies.

In recent days and months, especially with developments around the Michael Flynn and Roger Stone cases, observers have been deeply concerned that President Donald Trump is engaging in the first kind of abuse. But according to a new report from the Washington Post, what Trump really cares about — and what he is really furious hasn’t happened yet — is the prosecution of his enemies.

It’s not just Comey. The report noted that Trump has also been eager to see charges against Comey’s former deputy, Andrew McCabe. And Trump also reportedly became enraged when the Washington Post reported in January that U.S. Attorney John Huber’s investigation into vague allegations about Hillary Clinton came up dry. (Trump had asked former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into Clinton, according to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.)

There is a lot more at the link above, including individual cases where the president demanded a person be prosecuted and that investigations be used to benefit tRump in the 2020 election.   Hugs

  1. OK, it’s all well and good that … observers have been deeply concerned , but are they — or ANYONE — doing something — ANYTHING — about their “concerns?”

    We keep hearing stuff like this but then he plows ahead and does what he wants. This “total control” thing is getting VERY, VERY worrisome.

    • Hello Nan. I agree. I see Dylan has written a comment questioning my post on tRump’s authoritarianism. I doubt I will be able to get to him tonight, very tired and not feeling well, plus trying to do laundry. Just had to have Ron make the bed for me after I washed the sheets. The truth is there is no controls on tRump’s behavior and very little was before. No one in his adult life ever had control over him ( except Putin which in itself makes me wonder ) no one who worked for him was allowed to tell him he was wrong or correct him. He has lived his entire adult life consequence free of any restrictions. He was a rule, a reality unto himself. That Is why he thinks if he insists something is so , it really is. Now he is the most powerful man in the country and he thinks he deserves to be, and he wants to use that power. It is a delusion the country can not have nor be safe with. Hugs
