Trump Dislikes the DOJ, the FBI, Due Process, and the Federal Prison System

Trump Follows the Putin Model: I am the only one in charge — No One Else
(You, sit down and STFU)

AKRON, OH [Reuters] – GOP nominee Donald Trump urged the DOJ to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate if donors to the Clinton Foundation got special treatment from the State Department when it was run by his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

Trump accused former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, his opponent in this race, of turning the Clinton Foundation charity into a “pay-for-play scheme” in which wealthy donors, foreign and domestic, got favors from the State Department during Hillary Clinton's 2009-2013 tenure as Secretary of State.

Trump then went on again to fault the DOJ and FBI both for not indicting Clinton over her use of her private email server saying FBI Director James Comey cited her careless handling of classified emails but opted not to prosecutor her. (Trump and GOPers have been furious ever since about that outcome).

Trump further said: “The Justice Department is required to appoint a special prosecutor because it has proved to be, sadly, a political arm of the White House. Nobody has ever seen anything like it before.” (I guess he forget Richard Nixon)?

This latest appeal also comes on the same day a conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, released 725 pages of State Department documents, including some it said were examples of preferential treatment provided to donors at the request of former Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.

Trump then continued in the speech appealing to black voter saying that Democratic politicians had not been able to stem crime and poverty in inner cities despite pledges to do every election year, adding: “I say it and I'm going to keep saying it and some people say: Wow that makes sense and some people say: That's not very nice. And I say it with such a deep-felt feeling, what do you have to lose? We’ll bring jobs back. We’ll bring spirit back. We'll get rid of the crime.”

Now I wade in: Okay, Mr. Trump, fair enough – now tell us how you would do those things and be specific not just “we’ll do this or that, etc. Fill in the blanks.”

Just simply lay out your specific policy proposals that you would try to get passed as Federal policy and then implemented across the board in the country coast to coast.

Oh, yeah, just skip the part about it being okay for Americans to be held and processed with due process justice in Gitmo just like you said recently in remarks reported on in the Miami Herald and seen in this short video.

Let’s be honest shall we. To me, and I’m sure to millions of others, Trump is certifiably nuts and continue to be a man totally out of control with his one-man show and need to be front and center all by himself. All the while he would blast everything and fire any cabinet official probably on a weekly if not daily basis while keeping only ass-kissers and family members nearby as props to explain is actions probably on Twitter and Facebook

That has been his style all his life – and he is in capable of change in any way except to benefit himself. He would be more likely to resign office if he did not get his way 100% of the time … I think that aspect is certain.

Thank for stopping by.
