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


I have no idea which would be a better venue. Private citizens testify before Congress and (of course) in civilian courtrooms.

No its constitutional law 101.

Oh. I must have missed that day.


As I said are you ok with law enforcement investigating you in search of a crime?
I haven't committed a crime. I have nothing to hide.

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.


Nope

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


No kidding! Thanks for the legal/structural clarification.

I wonder what "violation" the DOJ/FBI dreamed up in order to investigate the Trump campaign?

Apparently you did and you should brush up on it so you are on the same page.

As for your second comment that is exactly what I am talking about and for some reason you are failing to understand the point. If you didnt commit a crime law enforcement cant open an investigation into you in hopes of finding one.

The process requires -
1 - Law Enforcement receives information that John Doe has violated a law.
2 - Law Enforcement will investigate to determine if a law was in fact broken.
3 - Law Enforcement will then investigate the crime in order to find a suspect.
4 - Law Enforcement locates a suspect, meets probable cause requirements, submits charges and we go from there.

What they cant do is skip step 1.

Also it does not matter that you have nothing to hide. The fact is they cant investigate you without a law violation.

They must have a law violation to investigate.

You'll not find any posts with me discussing Cohen. I know nothing about him, and don't care to learn anything about him.

The issue is with the verbiage deary.
McCabe supplied the correct information to the media to correct a misconception.
As was his authority.
He didn't leak...

It's kind of like the way you guys confuse informant with spy. Lol

No. It doesn't have to be John Doe.

Say, for example, a body has been discovered. A crime indeed. Who is the perp? Who is this John Doe of which you speak? Let's just investigate...everybody?

On the other hand. Let's say there is evidence that a foreign government has planted spies in the US. Should anyone in the US who those spies have been in contact with be disregarded entirely?


Let's say that something has happened. Say, an attack on an Embassy, or something. Did someone commit a crime, other than those who perpetrated the attack? Should that be investigated? Or not?

The point you are missing is McCabe said Comey not only knew about it but authorized it.

Comey says that never happened.
