12. I'm taking a guess here but Biden was saying that he wouldn't use the DOJ

as his personal lawyers like asking them to represent him for rape accusations.... and hiding taxes in NY.

14. Asked about prosecuting Trump for Obstruction of Justice

and other crimes.

Joe: The DOJ decides. The DOJ is not my law firm.

20. Asked if he would go after Trump administration figures...

...responded that he would hire the best prosecutors, and let them make the impartial decision, because the President should never be able to order the DoJ to prosecute an opponent or shield him personally.

7. He was asked about prosecution in the future.

His answer, Im paraphrasing. Joe will hire good lawyers and let them make decisions. He wont be hiring them to personally defend him against a rape case.

8. Answer: would he send the Justice Department after Trump. He said he'd leave it up to the DOJ.

He won't weigh in either way - the AG is not the President's personal attorney.

9. Biden says he is going to hire the best prosecutors in the nation

and let them decide whether or not to prosecute. "It's not my justice department." He said.

11. Loved it

 

Basically said that no president(Democrat or Republican) prior to Trump, had turned the DOJ into their personal lawyers. He said President Trump has had the DOJ defend him against rape allegations and go after perceived enemies.

13. Bringing up the rape accusations and trump* using Barr as a personal lawyer?

That was a big 'What the...... WOW!' moment for me.

15. Joe said he'd let the Justice Dept handle any legal issues...

he believes in hiring the best. They are the lawyers of the people not the President. He'd let them do their jobs.

25. Overall, it sounds great.......

but it seems like I'd heard "hiring the best" before?


(Trust me, I DO believe Joe - it's just that the phrase "hire the best" has had its A$$ kicked in the past 4 years!)

GO, JOE!

GET OUT THE VOTE!!!!!!!!

18. he'd staff the doj with independent experts who would decide whether or not to prosecute trump

and officials on their own. no directive to go after political enemies or act as personal attorneys for the president

22. Trump making DOJ his personal lawyer defending him from woman who accused him of rape

and having DOJ help him over his tax records. Biden said "what's that about?" and earlier Biden said DOJ should not be President's personal law firm.
