Upon the Department of Justice (DOJ) criminally charging Congressmen Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins for misuse of campaign funds and insider trading, respectively, President Trump responded in opposition, tweeting, “Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff…” The DOJ must be protected as it fulfills its duty to the American people. America’s legal system does not bend or break under the pressures of popularity, positions in Congress, and election cycles. This democratic institution and its norms must be reaffirmed.
