About: Department of Justice
Donald Trump threatened to "use the powers granted to the Presidency" and interfere in an ongoing DOJ investigation at the behest of a number of House Republicans who want access to secret and classified information. Trump falsely claimed that his own DOJ is operating under a "rigged system," but a law enforcement agency refusing to turn over highly classified information doesn't come close to proving that the system is rigged.
