If Robert Mueller is going to continue investigating Trump's ties to Russia, the Republicans want their own Special Counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton.

Courtesy of CNBC:

In a letter addressed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Republicans said they were writing to "request assistance in restoring public confidence in our nation's justice system and its investigators, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)." 

The lawmakers said they presumed investigation of potential Russian influence on the U.S. presidential election was covered by special counsel Robert Mueller, but that they "are not confident that other matters related to the 2016 election and aftermath are similarly under investigation" by the former FBI director. 

"The unbalanced, uncertain, and seemingly unlimited focus of the special counsel's investigation has led many of our constituents to see a dual standard of justice that benefits only the powerful and politically well-connected," the letter said. "For this reason, we call on you to appoint a second special counsel to investigate a plethora of matters connected to the 2016 election and its aftermath, including actions taken by previously public figures like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton."


This is clearly the Republicans pandering to Donald Trump who has been tweeting his desire that the DOJ investigate Hillary for a while now as a deflection from the Russia investigation.
Even with Jeff Sessions still in charge of the Department of Justice I seriously doubt this will go anywhere.

It is too obvious of a distraction, and would certainly constitute a political witch hunt.

      Trump will have a dream team. He will be happy and he will be able to get things done now. Sessions may have to go, we'll see. The bad guys will be out of his way soon. He can work on health care, his wall and a stronger police force will rid Long Island of one gang. Police across America won't have to be so nice.

    3. When you surround yourself with yes men and ass kissers, nothing gets done. Well, nothing good.

    If Trump pushes this it will assuredly create his demise in the White House. How many times has Hillary Clinton been investigated already? They've lost each time. Fucking idiots and waste of taxpayer money.

    But, I'd love to see Trump run out of town pronto!

      At this point, if the GOP wants to investigate Hillary AGAIN, they should have to pay for it out of their own pockets. We've paid for enough.

    Reince Priebus out, John Kelly in as White House chief of staff - 1 hour ago

    (CNN)President Donald Trump replaced his chief of staff Reince Priebus on Friday with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, an explosive move that ends a turbulent six-month tenure.

    Trump made the announcement on Twitter just after landing on Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington.

    "I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American... and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration," Trump tweeted.

    1. Anonymous4:00 PM

      He's barely begun his tenure at Homeland Security. My God. I guess no one wants to work for the Trump White House so he's just going to shift people around. Why didn't he make Little Jared his Chief of Staff? Then he would have put the job in the family.

    Trump: 'We're going to destroy' MS-13
    By Tal Kopan 

    (CNN) President Donald Trump delivered a fiery law-and-order speech in Long Island on Friday, calling gang members "animals" and praising law enforcement for being "rough."

    Trump traveled to the New York suburb to discuss efforts to combat the violent MS-13 gang, which he pledged to dismantle and deport.

    "Together we're going to restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities and we're going to destroy the vile, criminal cartel MS-13 and many other gangs," Trump said...

    The speech was laced with violent imagery, with Trump saying MS-13 has rendered the suburb into "blood-stained killing fields."

    "They kidnap. They extort. They rape and they rob," Trump said. "They stomp on their victims. They beat them with clubs, they slash them with machetes, and they stab them with knives. They have transformed peaceful parks and beautiful quiet neighborhoods into bloodstained killing fields. They're animals"....

      Trump is continuing to incite violence! The idiot doesn't have a clue!
      He is challenging and emboldened a gang that he doesn't know shit about ! He continues to put our law enforcement in harms way.
      Every time he opens his uninformed and ignorant mouth he makes every situation worse. He operates solely on ignorance and egomaniacal bullshit!!
      How much more of this idiot can we afford before we have a end of times for all of us?

    Geez lousie! That again? The one woman to stand up to the Republicans, Donald, and Putin, and they try so hard to bring her down.
    Listen guys, you won't lose your' balls if a woman is in power. It'll still be hangin' between your old legs.
    I mean wasn't it sweet that Lisa and Susan kicked the healthcare to the curb? It was sweet because they are Republicans.
    I think it would be even sweeter if it were women (Republican women) who ended up kicking the Donald to the curb. Sweet justice indeed.

    They'll investigate Hillary AGAIN, and will once again find nothing. Let's see how much more chaos this administration can inflict on American citizens. Making America Great Again is killing our great country.

    1. Anonymous3:56 PM

      Trump, Republicans don't care what the results are. They just want to have headline news from what leaks out of the investigation, like they did with Benghazi. The longer it takes the more they like it.

      Republicans rather be spending money on their investigations and bleed the investigations they don't want dry.

    2. Let's see how many more tax dollars they can waste.

      How about we take it all out of Trump's "Wall Fund" and see how he likes that.

    OT...Just heard this. The reason why Trump named Kelly as White House Council is that he will move Sessions to his position and then move someone in as the Attorney General to fire Mueller.

    1. Reassigning him elsewhere is the same as firing. It's removing him from his position as Atty Gen. Senate isn't going to like that and there will be consequences. Trump already has one on his desk that he is forced to sign.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
