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.

No tea party here: House Democrats

As House control is about to switch, it serves as a reminder about Democrats: They like government. And governing. While tea party Republicans swept to power to stop things -- repeal Obamacare, roll back environmental regulations and decrease the size and scope of government -- Democrats are marching into the majority to build things back up. And after spending eight downcast years in the minority, they can´t wait to get started. Just ask Rep. Peter DeFazio. He´s waited 32 years for his chance to become chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and has a highway and transit rebuilding

SAN DIEGO - Kneeling in front of riot police, 32 religious leaders and activists were arrested at the U.S. border fence in San Diego on Monday during a protest to support the Central American migrant caravan. More than 400 demonstrators, many leaders of churches, mosques, synagogues and indigenous communities, sought a halt to detention and deportation of migrants and for the United States to welcome the caravan that arrived in Tijuana, Mexico in November. (Snip) They were handcuffed and led away by federal agents upon entering a restricted area in front of the fence.

President Trump has courageously thrown his weight behind a reform bill that will dramatically improve how we rehabilitate criminals and help keep them out of overcrowded prisons. Joining him are a majority in the Senate as well as numerous groups representing law enforcers and prosecutors, including former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik. The problem: A small group of GOP senators are trying to defeat the bill, known as the First Step Act, with the basest of tactics. Instead of permitting a principled debate on the Senate floor, they’re treating the American people to misdirection,

President Donald Trump on Tuesday will meet with Democratic leaders to hash out a plan to avert a partial government shutdown later this month despite sharp disagreements over his border wall. Trump will sit down with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer at the White House on Tuesday ahead of a Dec. 21 deadline to shut down a range of government agencies. (Snip) Republican lawmakers have repeatedly urged Trump to cut a deal with Democrats, an acknowledgment of their inability to produce spending bills with Republican votes alone.

For 45 years, Bob Woodward has been the spokesman for the Deep State. His sources at the CIA and elsewhere in DC trust him without question. Mark Felt, the Andy McCabe of his day at the FBI, gave Woodward Watergate, and made his career. His sources can find no collusion between Russia and President Donald John Trump. None. The man with the Golden Rolodex and the license to spill comes up emptier than a sailor´s billfold after shore leave.

CNN was so giddy a month ago that Jeff Zucker felt 5 foot-7 inches tall. Could be the Cuban heels he was wearing. The channel´s headline read, "Macron rebukes nationalism as Trump observes Armistice Day." Fortune magazine was more explicit, "Macron´s Armistice Speech Sends Message to Trump: ´Nationalism Is a Betrayal of Patriotism.´" How silly. Nationalism and patriotism are synonymous. And how stupid because feuding with Donald John Trump, president of the United States of America, is an invitation to disaster -- which has befallen Macron.

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. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday.

In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
