Skip to comments.The Nuclear Option: Rod Rosenstein the Face of the Swamp
Posted on 06/14/2018 6:59:55 AM PDT by a little elbow grease
However bad you thought it was, it really is so much worse. However rotten and ungovernable you thought the federal swamp was, it really is so much worse. Indeed, it will take a hundred Donald Trumps to carve out all the cancer riddling this federal government. Behold, Rod Rosenstein, the very face of the swamp Leviathan.
Geeky and bespectacled, he is the cancer that even Americas Founders could not imagine when they crafted a set of checks and balances designed to temper even the most monstrous of human nature.

Mr. Rosenstein, one of the most powerful men in the Department of Justice, threatened to investigate members of Congress and their staff if Congress continued to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to oversee the increasingly rogue federal department.
Move over J. Edgar Hoover. Rod Rosenstein has officially taken your place as the most power-drunk, nefarious, crooked blight on justice to ever preside in the Department of justice.
Rosenstein is a Heinrich Himmler lookalike.
No matter how many ‘Checks and Balances’ you build into the governing documents, there will always be those who subvert the system for their own ends....................................
Club .308—The ultimate check/balance
After admitting Mr. Rosenstein threatened Congress for overseeing his department, the DOJ official went on to reiterate that the threat remains.
That is why he put them on notice to retain relevant emails and text messages and he hopes they did so, the officials statement said.
Are you freaking kidding me?
Who does this lunatic think he is? What kind of country does he think he lives in? Who does this a-hole think is paying his salary?
“Mr. Rosenstein, one of the most powerful men in the Department of Justice,”
Second only to Mueller.
How about Arnold Stang?
Wtf is trump doing about it
Hunt rips Rosenweasel.
Maybe he will resign or get fired.

It looks like the stage is being set for his firing.
Rosenstein is the one briefing the President on the OIG report today .... isn’t that “interesting”? After hearing how RR abused Congressional staffers, I wonder what Trump’s attitude will be towards RR. Supposedly, after meetings with Gen. Kelly a couple of weeks ago, both RR & Sessions were told their jobs were teetering on a thin edge. For my own sanity, it’s wait & see what the next day brings ... I know what I’d LIKE to see, but that only results in frustration when it doesn’t happen. So far, Trump has been doing just fine so I’ll continue to trust him and enjoy all the winning. At some point, the treasonous criminals in our government, current and former, will get what they deserve - maybe not through our legal system, but from some other source.
The president should fire him and explain exactly why, taking much of the text of his explanation from this article - i.e. this is not how we do things in the US.
Wtf is trump doing about it
There is a clear and present threat to the Republic. It is undeniable. The DOJ see’s itself as a fourth branch of government. This cannot be allowed stand.
Please act now, Mr. President.
Hopefully RR is just cocky enough to think he’s got one up on POTUS. And POTUS will play him like a John Phillips Sousa march. Before he tells him he’s fired.
I hope so. What do you think it would be about? Was RR involved in the email cover-up scheme somehow?
Appears NOTHING??? perplexed here
The architects of the constitution couldn’t “check and balance” to the nth degree. They never imagined this level of deception and depravity from some citizens of the republic. Though 2A is the ultimate check.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. - Declaration
“Americas Founders could not imagine when they crafted a set of checks and balances designed to temper even the most monstrous of human nature.”
More likely the founders knew precisely what they were doing; and the swamp “floaters” of more recent Klinton toilets era HAVE seemingly multiplied!
Congressional oversight obstruction?
