Trump: ‘The Saddest Thing’ Is I Can’t Order DOJ and FBI to Target Hillary Clinton and Democrats

President Donald Trump said he’s “very frustrated” he can’t order the Justice Department to target Hillary Clinton, despite a plethora of tweets demanding they do just that.

Speaking with conservative WMAL radio host Larry O’Connor Thursday, Trump lamented that he can’t order his Justice Department to investigate a seven-year-old Uranium One deal, which allowed Russia to buy a controlling stake in the company.

“You know, the saddest thing is that because I’m the president of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department. I’m not supposed to be involved with the FBI,” Trump said on the show. “I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things that I would love to be doing. And I’m very frustrated by it.”

Trump also questioned why the Justice Department is not investigating Clinton for funding the Trump dossier, alleging lurid ties between the president and Russia, much of which have already been proven.

“I look at what’s happening with the Justice Department. Why aren’t they going after Hillary Clinton with her emails and with the dossier, and the kind of money?” Trump said. “I don’t know, is it possible that they paid $12.4 million for the dossier? And how was it ― which is total phony, fake ― and how was it used?”

Trump said the president isn’t supposed to be involved in the process, “but hopefully they are doing something and at some point, maybe we’re going to all have it out.”

Despite his supposed respect for the protocol, Trump spent much of Thursday evening and Friday morning raging that Democrats are not under investigation over a deal revealed by former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazille that she says “rigged” the Democratic primary process against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“Donna Brazile just stated the DNC RIGGED the system to illegally steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders. Bought and paid for by Crooked H,” Trump tweeted, despite Brazile explicitly noting in her book that the deal was not illegal.

“This is real collusion and dishonesty. Major violation of Campaign Finance Laws and Money Laundering – where is our Justice Department?” he asked, despite the deal not actually violating campaign finance laws and certainly not coming anywhere near “money laundering,” which is what Trump’s top campaign aides were indicted for earlier this week.

“Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems,” he continued to rage Friday. “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…People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!”

“The real story on Collusion is in Donna B’s new book. Crooked Hillary bought the DNC & then stole the Democratic Primary from Crazy Bernie!” Trump continued.

“Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept,” he tweeted, referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

So much for not being involved.
