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.

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.

The SS Weekly Standard sank today. Fittingly, CNN got the scoop on the story. The magazine served as a Judas Goat that led conservative sheep to slaughter. But as he has done so often, Donald John Trump served as a red pill that revealed the magazine for what it is: junk conservatism.Better make that last verb was. Its co-founder and till recently editor, Bill Kristol, cast the anchor that would sink it by joining National Review´s "Against Trump" tribute to out-of-touch cruise ship conservatism.

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives. But there’s a problem: According to a new study, we might not have enough materials to make that happen. Plenty of high-tech electronic components, like solar panels, rechargeable batteries, and complex circuits, require specific rare metals.

Today there was a much hyped congressional hearing, spearheaded by sub-committee chairman Mark Meadows, into issues surrounding the Clinton Foundation and the possibility of IRS tax avoidance schemes. The backstory is of particular importance because the hearing is being framed by the ‘tick-tock-boom club‘ as something it was not.

Oddly, there’s a factual part of his statement CTH agrees with; and a structural part of the background that is almost certain never to reach sunlight.

John Solomon understands the art of a nice innuendo-laden question-mark headline, as he proved on Tuesday evening: “Did Clinton Foundation mislead IRS? State filings raise the question.” What follows is a discussion of Clinton Foundation run-ins with state regulators. The lead example: Utah “specifically flagged money spent on professional fundraisers and consultants that were excluded from the required section of the filing,” wrote Solomon in the story. The Clinton Foundation responded that those expenses were listed in another section.

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – A special tribute to fallen officers is on display at the Boone County Sheriff’s Office. They installed a Christmas tree with 137 blue ornaments to represent the 137 officers killed in the line of duty this year, including Boone County’s own Deputy Jacob Pickett. “It means a lot to all of us – we were all very close.

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.

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.

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee amid suspicion that a portion of the $107 million it raised was misspent, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal states the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is in the beginning stages of probing whether the committee’s most prominent donors made sizable contributions “in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions.”The Journal reports: The investigation partly arises out of materials seized in the federal probe of former 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.
