Do as I say, not as I do.
But don’t fire Sessions, Rosenstein or Mueller. Got it. Now I understand.
But Trump dare not fire anyone. Those “investigators are valuable”.
Hmmm . . . an abuse of power by an “independent investigator”. Imagine that!
If there is a bottom level of hypocrisy, de blasio and his fellow left wing nuts are way past it.
a large degree of independence that allows impartial scrutiny of all areas of government, including the executive branch.
it’s a constitutional crisis!!! or something.
The mayor had cost the taxpayers over $11 million in legal fees several years ago.
He (the investigator) must have found something on DeBlasio.
Andrew Cuomo did the same thing when the investigations got too close to home.
Trump should have a press conference. Leak that it is someone higher up in the administration that is getting the axe. Then on national TV, announce Mueller and Rosenstein have been fired for abusing their authority. Make sure Trump gives a big shout out to Cuomo and DeBlahBlah.
So, what’s de Blasio covering up?
