Donald Trump’s working hard, but naturally it has nothing to do with serving the American people. He’s desperate to find a foil for the Russia entanglements that are beginning to strangle his presidency. Here’s the start of Trump’s Friday morning campaign:
By “everybody,” we assume he means all his Russian bot followers, whose concerns warranted another seven tweets following that opening bid. Three of those tweets explicitly called on the FBI and the Department of Justice to investigate Clinton for, well, everything: “New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary. What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus…”
It’s clearly driving the Don crazy that he can’t just order two of
government’s most powerful investigative bodies to go wherever he wants and not where the facts lead. His Friday tweets come on the heels of a radio interview on the right-wing “Larry O’Connor Show” in which Trump repeatedly lamented the fact that, as president, he wasn’t supposed to “be involved with the Justice Department […] with the FBI.”
“I look at what’s happening with the Justice Department. Well, why aren’t they going after Hillary Clinton with her emails and with her, the dossier?” Trump said, referring to the Democratic Party-funded dossier designed to find connections between Trump and Russia that has been both partially discredited and partially corroborated.
The president added that he was “very unhappy” with where the Justice Department “isn’t going.”
“I am not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing,” he said. “And I am very frustrated by it.”
Also, make the seven times: “Honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats,” Trump told reporters before departing the White House on a 12-day trip to Asia.
