Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Refuses
to be Interviewed By Joint
House Committee…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/11/2018 9:37:49 AM

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was scheduled to testify tomorrow to a closed-door joint House congressional committee (Judiciary/Oversight) chaired by Bob Goodlatte. (Snip)Exposing the FBI/DOJ dirty deeds is a major priority for a contingent within congress and a multitude of Trump supporters – but for the office of the President, in the immediate future, not-so-much. When you have this much leverage on someone, you don’t want them to quit. You want to use their damaged and tenuous position to your advantage. President Trump is in no hurry to fire Rosenstein (not yet), because the DAG is so weak

Comments:
Leverage.

Naught to worry.
There´s some genius Trump plan at play here.
He didn´t fire Rosenstien (sp) when they recently flew together on Air-force 1 but they talked. Be patient. Trump is in control.

Congress can pass a law saying if you refuse to talk or take the 5th - you immediately lose your Secret Clearances.

Also, if you lie to Congress you lose your Secret Clearances.

Rosenstein was NOT duped. Special Counsel was appointed under fraudulent pretenses. That is the key that must come out undeniably before the polls.

Shame on Trump. Trump claims he has a very good relationship with Mr Peepers, he said so on Fox And Friends this morning. Now how could that be when this Rosenstein was the one who picked Mueller to go after Trump and allotted all this money to be spent on this investigation. Something don´t smell right

How many democrats will be impeached from the House and Senate after the elections? Even if the democrats manage to win the House, using voter fraud and other means, I think enough of them will be removed- either impeached or indicted- that their efforts will be nullified. Some RINOs are probably not sleeping too well either!

If Rosenstein’s testimony is considered important enough the Congress should subpoena him.

Rosenstein is totally in this whole Mueller mess right up to his epaulets. Mueller and Comey both are considered by Rosey´s wife Lisa to be her mentors.

Having said that, this notion he can refuse to talk to a committee of congress needs to be quashed. If you have nothing to hide Rosey, why not talk to them? Afraid the jig´s up??

If RR works for and answers to PDJT---and not the other way around---Trump should order him to undergo this interview. If RR refuses, fire him for insubordination. And stop his pension. Then investigate him for conspiracy to undermine our president.

Trump has Rosenstein by the short hairs, no need to run him off when he is under control and can control Mueller.

Rep. Mark Meadows is being considered as a replacement for outgoing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Axios reported late Sunday. The development coincides with late-breaking news Sunday that top rumored Chief of Staff candidate Nick Ayers was out of the running. Axios cited three sources with direct knowledge who said President Donald Trump was asking confidants about Meadows and three other unnamed candidates as potential Chief of Staff replacements. Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz chimed in at the news of Meadows being under consideration, “The winning would be exhausting.”

It would appear as though our horrible, no good, very bad and deliberately dishonest establishment media are at long last throwing in the towel and admitting they’ve been pushing fake news for over two years. Yes, in their own underhanded and cowardly way, they are finally admitting that these wild-eyed, evidence-free conspiracy theories about President Trump colluding with Russians to steal the 2016 election after getting pee’d on, was all a lie. What else are we to believe now that media are so desperate and pathetic they’re calling for Trump to be impeached over — no joke —

Exodus: Majority of GOP Members
Who Signed Discharge-Petition
Amnesty Leave Congress
Breitbart Politics, by Neil Munro    Original Article

Fourteen of the 23 GOP members who signed the cheap-labor Discharge Petition amnesty in June will be gone from Congress in January. The group’s wipeout came after they worked with House Speaker Paul Ryan to block the pro-American, compromise immigration reform bill prepared by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte, (Snip) In June, the 23 members used the discharge petition process to push for a Democratic-backed amnesty of at least 3 million DACA illegals. That push gave political cover to Ryan while he created a second immigration bill which successfully split the GOP caucus amid unanimous Democratic opposition to

President Trump on Monday denied the hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election were campaign contributions, instead calling them a "simple private transaction.” (Snip) Meanwhile, an expert campaign finance lawyer said in an interview published Monday that he is not impressed with the Department of Justice´s evidence that effectively links Trump to campaign finance violations after the recent release of the Cohen sentencing memo. Dan Backer, the lawyer, told Forbes that there appears to be no evidence to corroborate the DOJ’s apparent assertion of

Two years ago this month, the set-up of Lt. General Michael Flynn began. And now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has recommended the lightest sentence possible for Flynn’s crime of lying to the FBI in 2017, Americans are reminded that the real criminals—top officials at our nation’s most trusted agencies—have yet to be charged for illegally leaking classified information about Flynn to the news media in an effort to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidency. Flynn was toward the top of Barack Obama’s enemies list. Forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 by Obama loyalist James Clapper, Flynn joined

Donald Trump’s former consiglieri Michael Cohen, along with being charged with tax avoidance and improper business deals, allegedly is guilty also of trying to leverage money and attention by exaggerating his influence with candidate and later President Trump. In other words, Cohen to spec followed the standard creepy daily fare for Washington and New York wannabe fixers. But did we need Robert Mueller’s 18 months and $40 million to uncover and redirect to federal attorneys what was largely self-evident? Could not the U.S. government long ago, without the prompt of a special counsel, have uncovered that Michael Cohen

Many GOP leaders and politicians have started to question whether President Donald Trump will serve out his entire term, conservative commentator David Brooks has said. The right-leaning pundit, (Snip) pointed out that there is growing uncertainty among Republicans over Trump’s future during an interview with PBS News Hour . Brooks explained that politician’s from the president’s party have started to see his administration as losing “authority” and “failing.” Appearing alongside liberal political commentator Mark Shields, Brooks said it seems like “a lot of Republicans are looking at this White House, and they’re seeing an administration under a lot of

Legal trouble for President Trump is coming from all sides. There’s evidence Paul Manafort was still communicating with the White House this year. There’s evidence suggesting the Russian government was offering “synergy” with the Trump campaign. There’s further evidence Trump directed Michael Cohen to make the hush-money payments to pornographer Stormy Daniels. It’s still very unclear whether Trump broke any laws. It’s perfectly clear, however, that Trump got himself in this perfectly avoidable mess through bad behavior. For starters: Had Trump not cheated on his wife with a porn actress, he would not have found himself

The mugshot of an Ohio woman with a spooky full face tattoo has gone viral following her shoplifting and drug arrest, according to reports. Alyssa Zebrasky, 27, was arrested last Wednesday for stealing a bag at a Boardman Township WalMart, Fox8 reported. During a search at the Mahoning County Jail, cops found bags of methamphetamine and a hypodermic needle, the outlet said. “I don’t see how she was caught. Maintaining a low profile and all .?.?. SMH,” one Facebook poster snarked after the arrest. Zebrasky has drastically altered her appearance in the past six years, transforming herself into a real-life

A fascinating bit of news flying well under the D.C. radar is the comments of Clinton Foundation CFO Andrew Kessel to members of an independent investigation firm that has been looking into Clinton Foundation business practices for some time. According to Kessel it’s as bad as some have long thought – the foundation is mired in conflicts of interests, misappropriation of funds, and a rogue Bill Clinton himself who has long used it as a personal piggy bank.Via Zero Hedge: The CFO of the Clinton Foundation, thinking he was “meeting an old professional acquaintance,” admitted to investigators

The daughter of the late Dean Martin declared she has no intentions of stopping her performances of a classic Christmas song in spite of complaints from politically correct Scrooges. Deana Martin refuses to stop singing “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” a song sung by her father and many others for over 70 years which was recently pulled from an Ohio radio station because a proponent of the #MeToo movement deemed it offensive. (Photo) “’Baby It’s Cold Outside’ is a cute, flirtatious and romantic song written by Frank Loesser in 1944,” Martin, who has kept her father’s legacy alive on stage since

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

“Prosecutors’ Narrative Is Clear: Trump Defrauded Voters.” So declares the first part of the headline of a New York Times article by Peter Baker and Nicholas Fandos. The rest of the headline asks “But What Does It Mean?” Good question. It may mean that the prosecutors haven’t found a crime, but are still pi**ed off that Trump won the election. I find odd the notion that Trump defrauded voters. No candidate in my lifetime ever painted a clearer, more vivid picture of himself for voters. For better or for worse,
