Fact - Congress can initiate an investigation as it sees fit since it has oversight authority.
Fact - The FBI/DOJ cant initiate an investigation unless a crime was committed.

Congress exercising constitutional authority is not a crime. The DOJ/FBI launching an investigation into Congress exercising its constitutional authority with no crimes present is in fact illegal.

If Rosenstein wants to be like that impeach his ass and remove him from his position.


Rosenstein is running interference for the Mueller probe. The moment he turns over the requested material the Flynn investigation, along with the other illegal acts by the Mueller probe, comes to an end.

Nonsense.

Then explain. A one word dismissal is not an argument.

Contrary to popular belief a person CANNOT be investigated to find evidence a crime occurred. The potential law violation must come first.

Unless you are ok with your local police showing up and investigating you in search of a crime you may have committed that they know nothing about nor have evidence to support it.

Support your assertion.

Comey did no such thing. McCabe had the authority. He was protecting the FBI.
What happened to that referral for criminal charges submitted two months ago?

McCabe has claimed Comey not only knew about the info being leaked to the media but Comey directly authorized it.

Your addition is a strawman argument. It neglects the fact that the DOJ can conduct investigations to determine if a crime has been committed. Because that isn't always clear.


Now support yours.
Done.

Does Rod Rosenstein have the authority to block release of the Inspector General's report? It goes to the President and Congress at Noon (Eastern Time) on Thursday, and released to the general public at 3pm.

They already got the information.
They want the names to give a new list of possible victims to trump.

No. The president can do what ever he wishes (or not) as far as that's concerned.

And Comey claims total ignorance of these leaks. Their testimonies will be interesting. I say put them both before the Congressional committee together, at the same time.

You don't think a courtroom might be a better venue?
Why not? Both are private citizens now.

You're saying that even though the OIG is within the DOJ and Rosenstein is #2 at the DOJ, he can NOT block the OIG report? That's a relief!

Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride that happened here
To the Whitehouse in dark of night
Present new evidence with mornings light

Where did you buy your crystal ball?

No its constitutional law 101. In order for law enforcement to investigate a person a law violation must be present. If there is then they can investigate the crime to determine if a law was in fact violated and to determine who it was who broke the law.

What law enforcement cant do is investigate a person in search of a law violation.

As I said are you ok with law enforcement investigating you in search of a crime?

This is not difficult to understand. Investigating a person in search of a crime is illegal. It is deprivation of rights while acting under color of law.

You don't understand our system of government any better than Trump does, do you?

Nope

The OIG is essentially independent. They are appointed by the President and report directly to Congress for their oversight authority.
