Recently, while he was golfing at Mar-A-Lago in Florida, Donald Trump was pulled aside and asked a few questions from a New York Times reporter. They quickly chatted for a moment and their discussion, though brief, resulted in some very interesting information. The most glaring of which came when Donald Trump said, “I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department.
But for purposes of hopefully thinking I’m going to be treated fairly, I’ve stayed uninvolved with this particular matter.” Yeah. The President of the United States really said that. Crazy, right?
As you could imagine, it didn’t take long for experts to jump in and knock down that asinine notion from the POTUS. Representative Eliot Engel, a Democrat from New York, was on CNN this week discussing the matter. Of which, Rep. Engel said, “He’s not a king or an emperor. That’s a very, very scary attitude and a scary statement.”
He wasn’t done yet. Representative Engel continued to elaborate on his point by saying, “I wish they would just leave Hillary Clinton alone. She lost the election, and they keep trying to drag her back as some kind of whipping gal, but that’s ridiculous. We’re looking to see what the president is doing or has done or what his administration is doing or has done or what his campaign is doing or has done.”
Before he was through, Rep. Engel concluded his statement by saying, “The bottom line is [Robert] Mueller is there as special counsel and I want him to just work his work.” We couldn’t agree more.
Hopefully, Mueller and his team will be able to help us regain control of this once-great country. Fingers crossed.
