Donald Trump has occupied the White House for a grand total of 580 days. Apparently the president hasnt discovered all the features and perks that come with the Oval Office. Take his tweets.
Early Friday morning the leader of the free world publicly shamed Jeff Sessions, asking his attorney general to open up the files of the Department of Justice so the public could peek at documents concerning everything from the Russia dossier to FISA applications. It would be quite the haul. It would dominate news cycles for months to come. It could happen tomorrow.
Trump has the power. As head of the executive branch, he can tell the Justice Department to jump and, in most cases, they are supposed to ask how high. The current leader of the free world prefers to pretend he doesnt have the authority, however. Ever the victim, Trump would rather tweet than give orders that might require some painful political follow-through.

What’s a Philip Wegmann?
Still waiting for when Trump goes on the offensive.
Tell that to FReeper Laz. We are the Hatfields and McCoys of FR.
Its darn hard to fire burrowed in senior civil servants for anything less than misconduct
Trump could have ordered these guys to do their jobs anytime he wanted, but he has let them hang themselves
Of course, their slow walking and stonewalling has enabled Trump to shape public opinion and prepare people for some really damaging revelation's all timed just before the most critical election in history
Inoculating himself against future claims that he’s directed the DOJ for partisan political reasons.
Bull. If Trump wanted Sessions gone, he would have.
and letting criminals and traitors go free
ICYMI, President Trump’s ‘own Justice Dept’ is conducting a coup against him.
The author is a MORON.
Why did your parents name your brother ‘goodnight’?
.... Heck .... If you were playing life and death poker that held the future of our planet at stake ..... What would you do? ..... Throw everything on the table .... or?
“Sessions and I are dating. Just thought I let you know. “
So that’s what they have on beauregard...cheekchillers, boybutter and videotapes
Exactly. This Twittering Whining Act is getting old. The “I might have to get involved” BS has played. Act or Shut up.
