DOJ investigation ’shouldn’t be ordered up by the president’, says Buttigieg

Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg said he would expect his DOJ to ’think for itself’ when it comes to a potential prosecution of President Trump. ’I’m just saying it shouldn’t be ordered up by the president’, Buttigieg said in an interview that aired Sunday. In a separate interview, Buttigieg said he thinks the ’rule of law’ will ultimately catch up to Trump.

Well, now that I know a little more of how Buttigieg thinks I'm extremely disappointed that he cowed to outrage mobs and shut down and interview with Dave Rubin. Ya missed a great opportunity to show people your brain, man.

Who knew, there is one thing I agree with Mayor Pete on! All of this rhetoric about what these candidates would do to Trump if they won is kind of weird though; shouldn't they be campaigning on how they would strengthen the country? Spending time talking about dumb shit like more investigations seems irrelevant to me.

"DOJ should have nothing to do with politics.... which is why you should vote for me to instruct the DOJ to prosecute my political opponent." - Pete Buttigieg

Well, illegally persecuting any individual for political gain, be it slander or baseless accusations, is none the less a crime. Therefore the DOJ should have some agency in regards to what politcians can or cannot demand, especially in the case of private and potentially sensitive information. I'm not talking about Trump here. This should apply to everyone, as otherwise politcians would be immune to laws that typical people can be held accountable for, such as releasing or demanding the release of private information.

That's the problem, Buttplug! This WHOLE THING is politically motivated. The mere fact that the Democrats are bending over backwards just to remove all obstructions preventing them from removing a duly elected president as well as trying to remove the reason he won, it utterly reeks of political butthurt. They never want a guy like Trump to ever win again, not because hes hurting us, but because he's utterly DEVASTATING the deep state under his reign. Hes foiling all their dirty plans and they want him gone ASAP.

If the DOJ should have nothing to do with politics what do they keep wanting to weaponize it?
