Bob Corker: ‘Totally inappropriate’ for Trump to demand investigation of Democrats

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Friday it was “totally inappropriate” for him to call for the Justice Department to investigate Democrats, including aides of Hillary Clinton.

“Like me, most Americans hope that our justice system is independent and free of political interference,” Corker said in a statement Friday. “President Trump’s pressuring of the Justice Department and FBI to pursue cases against his adversaries and calling for punishment before trials take place are totally inappropriate and not only undermine our justice system but erode the American people’s confidence in our institutions.”

Trump told reporters before departing on a 12-day trip to Asia that the Justice Department should be looking into Democrats and their “dishonesty,” and said he is disappointed in the department. He has also been a critic of Attorney General Jeff Sessions for not investigating Clinton.

“I like to let it run itself,” Trump said of the department. “Honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats. They should be looking at Podesta, and all of that dishonesty. They should be looking at a lot of things. A lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me.”

    Corker proves without doubt that he is without brains and ability and that his mouth over loads his butt…

    Isn’t it the standard operating procedure for liberals to accuse their targets for things the liberals are or have already done? The Clinton Crime Family’s collusion with many different Russians, in and out of the Kremlin in order to personally profit (ie $140 million) is just the tip of the mountain of evidence waiting to be uncovered.

    Once again our President has shown just how clueless he is. I guess if there aren’t headlines he doesn’t think the DOJ or the FBI are doing things. He also thinks these agencies would tell him what they are doing since he has a problem keeping secrets. You would think that after nine months he would have picked up on the fact that he isn’t meant to have day to day control of either the DOJ or the FBI. This isn’t reality TV, it’s the real world.

      Well Bobby, again you’re the sefl appointe “bright star” that claims to be a Republican but bashes OUR President at every turn. You’re an ass hole Bobby and your simple mind just can’t grasp the fact the PRESIDENT Trump doesn’t fit the “mold” that YOU think all presidents should fit. Well Bobby, you don’t fit the “mold” that most Republicans think you should fit. Stop bashing our President Bobby, you ass hole!

        I have been a republican all my life, Trump has been one for less the fifteen years and not a very good one at that. The republican party isn’t really behind him, the republicans in congress doesn’t support him and he doesn’t believe in many of the core values of the party. Just like you he has no clue what a real republican is, he knows none of the history of the party and isn’t even a real conservative, only a tabloid conservative.

      Obama was a leader, people didn’t need to be bullied to follow him. Plus Obama wasn’t involved in scandals every other day and his people didn’t spend their lives lying to congress and the American people.

    Suggesting that Mueller investigate democrats like Hillary and gang is “inappropriate”? Same for follow the evidence? They couldn’t manufacture a case involving Trump and the Russians, but intentionally ignored the connection between Hillary and the Russians when the evidence is out in public already! GET REAL!

    Al Capone is turning over in his grave saying what mistake he made being a criminal when it would have been safer and more profitable to be a politician! Of course he would have had to be in cahoots with the Clintons or he might have wound up as part of an airport runway somewhere!

      Trumps people look like they will fall the same way Capone did, tax evasion. You are better off killing someone then cheating Uncle Sam. Why do you think Trump is hiding his tax returns. Who many of Trumps people have already had to go back and change numbers on their financial discloses.
