Trump wanted Justice Department to PROSECUTE Hillary Clinton and James Comey until White House lawyers warned it could lead to his impeachment 

President Donald Trump told White House counsel Don McGahn this year that he wanted the Department of Justice to prosecute Hillary Clinton and James Comey, only to have McGahn push back and remind him that he doesn't run the DOJ.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that at McGahn's urging, White House lawyers spelled out in a memo to the president how asking federal law enforcement to investigate his political enemies could open him up to an investigation that might end with his impeachment.

Trump has said privately that that he would favor the appointment of a second special counsel to probe both Comey, the FBi director he fired last year, and Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee whom he beat in 2016.
