(National Sentinel) Justice: President Donald J. Trump took to Twitter early Friday after it was briefly taken down to call on his Justice Department to “do what is right and proper” and investigate his one-time Democratic rival Hillary Clinton after revelations she rigged her nomination process.
“Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn’t looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems,” Trump tweeted early Friday. “New Donna B book says she paid for and stole the Dem Primary. What about the deleted E-mails, Uranium, Podesta, the Server, plus, plus…”
The president was referring to a new book set for release by former DNC operative Donna Brazile, who briefly led the Democratic National Committee last year. In her book and in a column this week published by Politico Magazine, Brazile claims that she has proof Clinton and the DNC rigged last year’s nomination process against Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
Trump was also referring to several prior reports detailing alleged improprieties, bribes and criminal conduct involving Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in recent years.
“I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested,” Brazile wrote in a piece for Politico Magazine. “By Sept. 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.”
Per Fox News:
The proof, according to Brazile, was a joint fundraising agreement document between the DNC, the Hillary Victory Fund and Hillary for America. It had been signed in August 2015, four months after Clinton announced her candidacy and a year before she officially secured the nomination over Sanders.
“The agreement –signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC and Robby Mook, with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised,” Brazile said. “Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decision on all the other staff.”
The president reacted to Brazile’s piece Thursday evening on “The Ingraham Angle.”
“It’s illegal, number one, and it’s really unfair to Bernie Sanders,” Trump said. “I’m not a Bernie Sanders fan, although I must say I got a lot of his votes when he was thrown out. Many of those people voted for me because of trade because I agreed with him on trade…But that was, I thought that was terrible.”
The president also hit Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in a tweet.
“Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept.,” Trump tweeted again. ‘Pochahontas,’ when used by the president, is typically in reference to Warren.
Warren was asked during an interview on CNN Thursday whether she believed the DNC primary was rigged, to which she responded, “Yes.”
More from Fox News:
Trump also referred to “Uranium,” alluding to the controversial Obama-era Uranium One deal. The 2010 deal concerns the sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom nuclear company. The U.S. was involved because the sale gave the Russians control of part of the uranium supply in the U.S. Clinton, at the time, was secretary of state.
Trump also referred to “Podesta,” though it is unclear if he was referring to Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta, or his brother, Clinton’s longtime confidante and 2016 campaign manager John Podesta.
This week, Tony Podesta stepped down from his lobbying firm, which was co-founded with his brother John, in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe expanding to question Podesta’s Foreign Agent Registration (FARA) filings, and whether he was in violation of that law.
Trump also tweeted that Americans are “angry” about the fact that so much evidence against Clinton has been publicly reported but the Justice Department has thus far failed to act on any of it.
“People are angry. At some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper. The American public deserves it!” Trump tweeted.
