Skip to comments.Rod Rosensteinís Subpoena Threat: Heís Conflicted, and Heís Acting Like It
Posted on 06/13/2018 11:38:11 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
The House Intelligence Committee is investigating whether the government has used the Justice Departments awesome investigative authorities as a weapon against political adversaries. We learned yesterday that, in response to this ... Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein . . . threatened to use the Justice Departments awesome investigative authorities as a weapon against political adversaries.
That Rosenstein threatened to subpoena the committees records does not seem to be in serious dispute...the best explanation for the outburst is that Rosenstein is beset by profound conflicts of interest, and hes acting like it....
Rosenstein has clung to his role as Muellers ostensible supervisor in the investigation notwithstanding that he is a central witness in Comeys dismissal. He authored a memorandum that, ironically, posits that a troubled officials removal was necessary to restore public confidence in a vital institution. The Trump administration used Rosensteins memo to justify Comeys firing even though there are salient questions about whether it states the true rationale for the firing precisely the questions Mueller is investigating....
Finally, note that Attorney General Sessions was counseled by Justice Department officials (none of them Trump appointees) to recuse himself under circumstances in which (a) there was no criminal investigation (which the regulations call for in recusal situations); (b) his contacts with Russian officials were not improper; (c) there was scant evidence of criminally actionable collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia; and (d) Sessions apparently had no involvement in approving FISA surveillance of Trump officials, and had less involvement than Rosenstein did in Comeys firing.
On what planet is it necessary for Jeff Sessions to recuse himself but perfectly appropriate for Rod Rosenstein to continue as acting attorney general for purposes of both the Mueller investigation and Congresss probe of Justice Department investigative irregularities?

Sessions was on Tucker Carlson and denied it. Of course.
FIRE HIS ASS. GET THIS CHARADE OVER WITH
Sessions has been cuckolded by Rod & yet he still gets on Tucker’s show the other night & defends him.
On many things the President is strong, on rightfully reacting to the DOJ’s tranny, he is weak.
Thanks for posting!
One question: is anybody reading NR anymore? The comments section runs approximately 3-5 comments with every article. I’ve never seen that in any major publication!
No, he evaded the question.
After this report come out and the Sharpie ink is later removed then Rod Rosenstein just may be out of a job. He is dirty.
Rosenstein is not just conflicted, he is a coup plotter and should be treated as one of the cabal trying to overthrow the government.
Review Rosenstein’s e mails with Loretta Lynch from 2014-2017 and much would be understood.
Tranny? eh, no, I meant Tyranny...a 65 moment.
NR moved their comments section to Facebook so you can’t generally post anonymously any longer.
And of course the “never trump” nonsense drove off their readership.
Rosenstein, Rosenberg, what’s the difference?
To facebook? So they can see the names of their detractors, lol? That’s funny. Thanks for the update.
On planet DC, where unelected, unvetted, undemocratic - but highly politicized bureaucrats stay forever in their jobs, and run a permanent deep state, with the help of controlled media.
I wasn't sure what you were talking about, but I thought the, uh, shift in topic quite interesting!
“Rosenstein is not just conflicted, he is a coup plotter and should be treated as one of the cabal trying to overthrow the government.”
Spot on. I’m tired of people obfuscating what is truly going on with our corrupt govt. Rosenstein is a high treason co-conspirator trying to overthrow a lawfully elected President of the United States. This is an OVERT coup under the thin veil of ‘law’.
My feeling is Rosenstein was given a choice to either do the right thing and make sure justice is served or go down with the deep state. Looks like he is choosing the latter.
I gave up years ago. One of the few magazines I actually where I had a subscription. I really miss Bill Buckley
