IMPEACHMENT MONDAY?: The Case Against Rod Rosenstein

Published

on

Members of the House Freedom Caucus, led by its Chairman Mark Meadows, are preparing a new effort to impeach deep-state linked Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to Politico on Friday. Rosenstein has become the target of criticism and suspicion from House conservatives for his refusal to cooperate with congressional investigations into FBI corruption, and failing to respond to a congressional subpoena requesting Department of Justice documents related to the matter. Deputy AG Rosenstein currently exercises DOJ oversight over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of potential Russian-linked proliferation of memes and online content during the 2016 Presidential Election, due to the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

It’s possible that members of Congress could file the impeachment documents by Monday, bringing to a climax escalating tensions between House Republicans and Rosenstein. Rosenstein had earlier been accused of threatening to launch investigations into congressional staff as a means of retaliation against House Republicans issuing subpoenas and exercising congressional oversight over his activities. Fox News had reported that staff on the House Intelligence Committee felt “personally attacked” during a meeting with Rosenstein in January.

The Chairman of the House Judiciary Comittee, Bob Goodlatte, had blamed Rosenstein for the spectacle on display during Thursday’s congressional testimony from disgraced FBI agent and sleaze Peter Strzok. Despite being dismissed from Robert Mueller’s investigation for political bias displayed in text messages sent to his adulterous lover- in which he suggested the FBI would unilaterally prevent Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 Presidential Election- Strzok had refused to answer any of the Committee’s questions that inquired into Russia-related FBI investigations. Strzok maintained that the FBI had forbidden him from answering such questions, a directive that Rosenstein could ultimately rescind in the interests of public transparency and congressional oversight of the troubled agency.

Potential impeachment proceedings of Rosenstein would require a simple-majority vote in the House and a two-thirds majority in the U.S Senate for conviction.

Patrick Howley reported for Big League Politics:

WASHINGTON — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave a resume to the Senate Judiciary Committee for his confirmation to be Deputy Attorney General. In that resume, provided under oath, he falsely stated the dates at which he worked for Ken Starr’s investigative legal team.
Rosenstein testified to the Senate that he worked on Starr’s team beginning in 1995 and ending in 1997. Rosenstein said that he began working at the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland for the Clinton administration in the year 1997. However, records show that Rosenstein interviewed Hillary Clinton for Ken Starr in the Whitewater case on January 14, 1998.
Rosenstein’s official interview with Hillary Clinton lasted fifteen minutes and cleared her of charges stemming from the seizing of FBI documents on the former Clinton White House travel director.
Big problem: That official interview took place outside of the time period in which Rosenstein told the Senate he worked for Kenneth Starr’s team.

An Associated Press wire report on January 14, 1998 lists Rod Rosenstein as one of two “Whitewater prosecutors” present at Hillary Clinton’s interview on the FBI Travel Office scandal. Rosenstein was in charge of the “FBI Travel Office case,” in which it was alleged that the Bill Clinton White House seized FBI file documents on “former White House employees.” Rosenstein swept the matter under the rug, according to insiders, and then obscured any record of it on his Senate questionnaire to be Deputy Attorney General.

Here’s Rosenstein’s official resume that he gave to the Senate for his confirmation. Notice how he lists his term in Ken Starr’s office as lasting from 1995 to 1997, and how he began his new job in the Clinton administration U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland in 1997:

Big League Politics has learned that Attorney General Jeff Sessions personally wanted Rosenstein to be his No. 2 at the Department of Justice, and that White House counsel Don McGahn smoothed the matter over with President Donald Trump. Sessions has a relationship with Rosenstein through a well-connected Washington lawyer named Charles Cooper, who is a University of Alabama alum and who represents Sessions in the Russia case. Cooper interviewed Rosenstein when Sessions was considering making Rosenstein his number two, and Cooper signed off on Rosenstein. Cooper saw confidential Iran-Contra documents alongside other Reagan administration officials in a 1986 meeting at Old Ebbit Grill, a restaurant in the nation’s capital.

Rosenstein is also a close personal friend of FBI director Christopher Wray…

ACCOUNTABILITY: President Trump Fires Deep State Snitch Who Triggered Impeachment Hysteria

Trump made the announcement to Congress on Friday.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is taking out the trash now that the impeachment witch hunt against him has subsided, and he has fired a deep state snitch instrumental in getting the impeachment proceedings off the ground.

Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, a Department of Justice attorney who served as the Intelligence Community Inspector General, after Atkinson notified Congress last year about the “whistleblower” complaint filed by CIA operative Eric Ciaramella. This prompted months of hysteria that ultimately found no evidence of Trump committing any wrongdoing.

“As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have the power of appointment … it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general,” Trump wrote in his letter to Congress. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”

Leading Democrats are not happy about Trump cleaning house and removing deep state operatives from power.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is demanding that the President to “immediately cease his attacks on those who sacrifice to keep America safe, particularly during this time of national emergency.”

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the firing is “another blatant attempt by the President to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.”

“This retribution against a distinguished public servant for doing his job and informing Congress of an urgent and credible whistleblower complaint is a direct affront to the entire inspector general system,” Schiff said in a statement.

“In the midst of a national emergency, it is unconscionable that the President is once again attempting to undermine the integrity of the intelligence community by firing yet another an intelligence official simply for doing his job,” said Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“When you speak truth to power, you should be a hero. But in this administration, when you speak truth to power, all too often, you get fired,” Schumer said during an appearance on CNN.

Republican lawmakers are generally pleased with the President’s decision to remove Atkinson.

“Like any political appointee, the Inspector General serves at the behest of the Executive. However, in order to be effective, the IG must be allowed to conduct his or her work independent of internal or external pressure,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-KY), who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“It is my hope the next nominee for the role of ICIG will uphold the same important standards laid out by Congress when we created this role,” he added.

“The intelligence community inspector general is particularly essential to ensuring the nation’s secrets are well protected and powerful, highly invasive surveillance authorities are not abused. Going forward the ICIG must step up its focus on investigating those abuses and preventing leaks of classified information,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said.

Trump is finally starting to drain the swamp by removing some of these career bureaucrats from position of authority in Washington D.C.
