Skip to comments.Deep State Exclusive: Sessions Ordered Two Comey Memos; Rosenstein Won't Recuse (POTUS exonerated)
Posted on 06/19/2017 10:49:00 AM PDT by drewh
According to sources with links to the Justice Department and intelligence community, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was ordered by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to write two separate memos regarding Director Comey; one that argued for Comeys strengths as FBI Director and the second, which Sessions used in his obstruction of justice to fire Director Comey.
This means that it is Jeff Sessions may be directly responsible for obstructing justice by misusing Rosensteins pro and con Comey memos, and not Donald Trump. The Deputy Attorney General made a point of saying that even in his negative memo, he would not recommend that Donald Trump fire Director Comey. On the night James Comey was fired by Trump, using the Sessions memos, Rosenstein had to be persuaded not to resign himself, so angered was he that Jeff Sessions had tricked him and misused only one of his two memos.
However, DAG Rosenstein was persuaded that it would be madness to resign and allow a right-wing partisan loyal to Trump, and only confirmed on a party-line vote, take his position overseeing the inquiry. Sessions had been forced to recuse, and the game was now to eliminate Rosenstein. Instead, the Deputy Attorney General immediately appointed Special Counsel Mueller, and left any decisions on recusals to him.
As I reported on Twitter at the time, both Andy McCabe and Rod Rosenstein had Director Comeys full confidence and they still do.
The concerted effort to concoct a forced recusal which will not happen is seen by sources as a push from Russian interests using selected commentators in the US media, some of whom may not realize they are being used in this way, because only one of the Rosenstein Comey Memos was ever used (and abused) by Jeff Sessions.
Sources say that the USIC has indeed long been playing a game of chess with Mr. Putin. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham confirmed Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, these sources say, deliberately in order to trap both Trump and Sessions. Both men were well aware of the conflicts Sessions had with Russia, and Senator McCain, who gave to US intelligence a much fuller version of the Steele Dossier, in particular, knew some of the reported signals intelligence on meetings Sessions had had with pro-Russian lobbyists. By confirming Sessions as Attorney General they removed him from the Russia inquiry, and this was deliberate.
Sources with links to the intelligence community report deep anger at what is seen as a push by the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who has both close ties to Vladimir Putin and funds PR companies in the United States, to push for the forced recusal of DAG Rosenstein on spurious grounds that he is a witness to obstruction of justice .
It is plain to see that Mr. Trump will always be able to cherry-pick Justice Department and other third branch personnel if he were able to force them into recusal merely by picking a quarrel with them, these sources say. Special Counsel Mueller is unmoved by media parlor games incited by Mr. Deripaska, who is currently, whether he knows it or not, under the spotlight by the United States Intelligence Community, who resent Putins ongoing attempted intervention in their work.
This is from Louis [Unter]Mensch. There is no reason to believe she actually has any legitimate sources.
Louise Mench is garbage.
I believe McQueeg leaked the Brit dossier, didn’t he admit to it already?
What is this dirty garbage?
ok look. Drewh posted yet another vomitfest from discredited wackadoodle Louise Mensch. Why is this?
Any commentary that assumes the “Steele Dossier” isn’t fake destroys its credibility. Utterly.
She’s a batcrap crazy woman:
‘Mensch has previously called for all out war on Russia, with precision bombing raids.”’
Nutjob conspiracy theorist.
Almost one conspiracy theory per paragraph.
Might be a new record?
I’m not sure, but Ms. Untermensch has made many wild claims (including accusing random people of being FSB agents), so it is best not to really get too caught up with her mad ravings. The article is accusing Sessions of “obstruction of justice”, which is nonsense even if what she claims is true—which we have on reason to believe, otherwise it would be reported in the MSM, not an Untermensch article.
This is a new low even for McQueeg!
100% USDA Grade A Pure Bulls***.
When is this stupid soap opera going to end? If these morons weren’t so dumb, they would be embarrassed.
sounds like they have nothing on potus and that these leaks are subtle signals from the deep state to Mueller attorneys and left wing media etc.
because the Obama/Clinton deep state holdover traitors must be dressed down and put out in the open, everyday!
