    News broke on Oct. 19 that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein agreed to appear before both the House Judiciary and Government Oversight committees on Oct. 24, when he will testify under oath about the supposed “25th Amendment” wire rumor, among other topics. Because this testimony is slated to be before only the chairmen and ranking members of the committees, several people who will be excluded from the hearing raised immediate objections. Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), and Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) criticized—in the strongest terms—the decision to hold the hearing under those circumstances. In two earlier columns, “Rod Rosenstein:...

    If Republicans hold the Senate and Sen. Lindsey Graham becomes chairman of the Judiciary Committee, he’ll continue to investigate the Justice Department and the FBI’s actions ahead of the 2016 election, the South Carolina Republican said Sunday. Mr. Graham praised the work House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, have done in their probe of the controversial Trump dossier’s connection to a FISA warrant on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

    Democrats itching to investigate President Trump’s possible conflicts of interests have zeroed in on a familiar presidential foe: the FBI. House Democrats released a trove of new documents this week that they say prove Trump was directly involved in canceling plans developed by the federal government to sell the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. Critics argue that Trump intervened because he wanted to prevent commercial developers from building a new property at the downtown Washington, D.C., spot that might compete with the Trump Hotel, which is located across the street. If Democrats take back the House this fall, they say...

    Of all the agencies in the federal government that should be immune to special-interest schmoozing, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and its premier law enforcement agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives top the list. Their independence from influence, and their integrity in meting out the law fairly, are essential to their success and the trust the American public places in them. But this week, the DOJ’s internal watchdog put a rare spotlight on gratuities inside the department when it revealed that a former FBI official...
