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!

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.

Before she blocked me on Twitter, I frequently read the posts of Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, as well as tweets from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Everytown for Gun Safety, which is the chief financial backer of Watts’ organization. Combined, the two gun control groups stand front and center in America’s anti-gun cult, with 4 million members, which is about on par with the membership of the National Rifle Association. It’s alarming how frequently Watts manipulates data to craft a narrative that America is held hostage to

Fired former FBI director James Comey is at it again. Last week, Comey testified before members of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. In a single appearance, Comey, on 245 separate occasions, while under oath, stonewalled questions with “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember” or “I don’t recall,” according to a congressional interrogator, Rep. Jim Jordan. (R-Ohio). If any private citizen tried Comey’s gambit with federal IRS auditors or FBI investigators, he would likely be indicted for perjury or obstruction. Why did Comey, the nation’s former top-ranking federal investigator, avoid

The subheadline in the Daily Mail said it all, "A tearful Cohen pushed back at President Trump for calling him ´weak.´" What a dork. He was Donald John Trump´s private attorney for many years, but when the heat was on for Cohen´s non-Trump activities, Cohen sold the president out for a plea bargain. And Bungling Bob Mueller failed to keep his end of deal. The judge gave Cohen a three-year sentence.

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump.

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.
