Rosenstein also has the LEGAL OBLIGATION to supply requested documents to the body that CREATED the DOJ... CONGRESS.

To ignore them, and then start your own investigation (aka witch hunt) into individual Congressmen is just plain WRONG.


Let's face it, there is corruption on both sides of the aisle, the outside and in the centre. Why wouldn't you want everyone investigated? I'm a conservative with libertarian leanings and I see the sense in this. Are you suggesting they put a wall to ptotect half the swamp from being drained? I agree he has the legal and mandated obligation to provide congress with requested information. However, he also has the legal and mandated obligation to root out and investigate corruption anywhere in the government.

Cheers - Dave

Because the Russians hacked the DNC then made friends with everyone on the trump team. Should we just ignore that because of #ing trumps feelings?
And there has been plenty of evidence of THAT!


Proof or shutup. Seriously.

After you've been around for awhile longer, you'll learn to find humor in, or ignore, most of what SillyOlMe says.

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


Um......

What?

Look up probable cause. They only need reasonable grounds.
Then they investigate to determine if a crime really did occur.



Again, you don't know what you are talking about!!!

This is REALLY getting serious, one day ahead of the I.G. Report release.


One staffer said Rosenstein launched a “sustained personal attack against a congressional staffer in retaliation for vigorous oversight” and called the threats “downright chilling.”

"From refusing to produce documents, to improperly redacting documents, to threatening our staff, it is clear Rod Rosenstein will use every tool at his disposal to frustrate congressional oversight."


From Congressman Matt Gaetz - twitter.com...

First off Nunes is a twat, no argument from me on that.

But how is a tweet any different than me walking up to my boss saying I saw XYZ being done and this is the wrong way to do business?

Especially at the federal level these things should be looked at, and if the investigation turns up nadda then it should be publicly stated there was nothing there.


Threatening the committee or denying them access looks bad, and gives a perception of wrong doing which is doing way more damage than just reading them in and sharing the paperwork.

Rosenstein must go! He does not represent the people of this country or our interests for justice. He must be disgraced, fired and left on the street with nothing. You don't threaten Congress for trying to do its job, period.

Rosencrime is a worthless sack of dog excrement, and isn't worthy of breathing free air.

Rosenstain is a failure as a law enforcer, and a disgrace to this country and a free people.

He's a little rat faced weasel.

Just out of curiosity, since we're discussing the Constitutional powers of the Congress ... could someone point me to their subpoena power?

For your convenience, here is a link to the Constitution ... Article I ennumerates the powers and whatnot of Congress.

Of all people, JEFF SESSIONS comes out in support of Rosenstein, saying there's no way he would threaten Congress.

I saw his interview this morning live on fox news JS did a bit of stammering in his answer, I do not think Rosenstein was talking about discovery in court. He (Rosenstein) would have said "we'll see in court." Why would he even bring up Texts and emails at all?

Maybe we will get some answers when the congressional gang of eight meets with the doj tomorrow morning to see the documents that they were not shown two weeks ago.

Congressional resolution introduced this afternoon to force the doj to surrender the documents that Congress is requesting.

No the Russians didnt hack the DNC. If they did then the DNC would have turned over the server for forensic analysis. They didnt bother doing that because they know that lie would also be exposed.
