What we have all been waiting for has finally happened. President Trump has made the scope of investigation wider to include the things we all suspect to be true: that the FBI and DOJ were working against the Trump Campaign and then the president himself in concocting a fabricated Russian Narrative.
WH Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders said:
After meeting with President Trump, the DOJ’s inspector general agreed to “expand its current investigation to include any irregularities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s or the Department of Justice’s tactics concerning the Trump Campaign.”
On Sunday, the president had tweeted that it was time to start an investigation into whether the security services had “infiltrated or surveilled … for Political Purposes.” he then announced that he would get the ball rolling. he certainly did.
There are of course questions about how successful or biased this investigation will be; essentially because the agencies will be responsible for investigating themselves (and we know full well they have a pro-Clinton bias). We can but hope that there are investigators out there who are willing to put personal animus aside and make an honest job of this.
Social media and leftist news sites are ablaze with accusations that Trump is abusing his position by ordering the DOJ to do something. And while it is true that the DOJ is part of the Executive branch, and that traditionally, presidents do not issue direct orders, there is a precedent: Barack Obama. Remember when he ordered Eric Holder to investigate himself? Let's wait and see what hypocritical messes they get themselves in.
