We’ll get right to which GOP senator slammed Trump’s call for a DOJ Deep State investigation, because the suspense is probably killing you. Or maybe not:
Determining who or what is investigated by the DOJ is not the President's call. Deputy AG Rosenstein's referral to the Inspector General is the right move. The White House should in no way hinder or impact the ongoing work of Special Counsel Mueller

Senator Jeff Flake’s tweet didn’t seem to make any side happy. The Resistance can’t understand why the retiring GOPer can’t stop Trump:
Stop talking and stop him! https://t.co/sLQAcjlUI9

I appreciate the sentiment, but talk is cheap. https://t.co/RPRz4tXRLr

Then for heavensakes DO SOMETHING about this insane moron. You always talk a good game and then you DO what the GOP tells you to do. https://t.co/atIQbCYtqE

So what are you planning to actually do about this, Senator? Seriously, what are you planning to do about this??? https://t.co/P6vlLdLNwK

Well, he’s going to retire from the Senate at the end of this term, for starters.
And then others are just rolling their eyes at Flake:
Deep State tool? https://t.co/xpvAX6090p

Doesn’t the doj fall under the executive branch? Isn’t the president the head of the executive branch or did I miss something?

You're an embarrassment. Read the Constitution it's right in there as clear as day who reports to who. Geezus https://t.co/riyDl9isVC

Just a couple months ago Flake begged Trump not to fire Robert Mueller, so we can’t say we’re too surprised by his comments this week.
