After 11 Republicans Call For AG Rosenstein’s Impeachment, His Sick Tie To Russia Comes Out

Published

on

The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Fox News.

As the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election – and any involvement from the Trump campaign – forges ahead, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has found himself on the receiving end of some Republicans’ ire.

With President Trump continuing to criticize the investigation into collusion, 11 House Republicans filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is spearheading the probe, but Rosenstein, 53, still oversees the federal investigation as deputy attorney general.

In the articles of impeachment, the Republicans accused Rosenstein of intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

“We’ve caught the Department of Justice hiding information, redacting information that they should not have redacted,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Fox News. Jordan, who was one of the lawmakers who introduced the articles, also claimed Rosenstein attempted to intimidate House staffers with subpoenas.

Read on for a look at how Rosenstein is connected to the Russia investigation.

What is Rosenstein’s job?
Rosenstein was confirmed by the Senate as deputy attorney general in April 2017.

As deputy attorney general, he is responsible for day-to-day operations of the Justice Department and oversees its agencies, including the FBI.

How is he involved in the Russia investigation?
Rosenstein appointed Mueller as the special counsel to oversee the investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 election in May 2017.

The appointment came after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the probe, and Rosenstein stepped in to oversee the investigation.

At the time, Rosenstein said his decision to appoint a special counsel was “not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted.”

Under Justice Department regulations, Mueller must consult with Rosenstein when his investigators uncover new evidence that may fall outside his original mandate. Rosenstein then determines whether to allow Mueller to proceed or to assign the matter to another U.S. attorney or part of Justice.

According to a memo from Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, Rosenstein signed at least one FISA surveillance application that targeted Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser on Trump’s campaign.

Did he have something to do with Comey’s firing?
Democrats were critical of Rosenstein after the White House used a memo he’d crafted as a reason to fire FBI Director James Comey in May 2017, Politico reported. Rosenstein reportedly drafted the memo after Trump had expressed his desire to fire Comey.

Rosenstein later told lawmakers on Capitol Hill that he stood by his memo. He said it was “not a finding of official misconduct” or “a statement of reasons to justify a for-cause termination.”

“Notwithstanding my personal affection for Director Comey, I thought it was appropriate to seek a new leader,” Rosenstein said.

What has the White House said about him?
As he has continued to deny any wrongdoing, Trump has been critical of the Russia investigation, particularly of Mueller’s handling of it.

In an April 11 tweet, Trump accused Mueller of being “conflicted” – and Rosenstein even more so.

2 Convicted Dems Are Running For Office Behind Bars – One Is Expected To Win In A Red State

What the heck is wrong with our country and political system that this can even happen? This is complete insanity.

It seems being a convicted criminal is a “resume enhancement” for a certain political party.

From Fox News:

Two Democrats are running for a political office despite being behind bars, with one of them expected to win in Texas and celebrate in jail.

Ron Reynolds, a sitting Texas state representative, is running for another term. He is expected to win because nobody is opposing him.

He’s a disbarred Missouri City personal injury lawyer convicted in 2015 on multiple misdemeanor charges for illegally soliciting people to his law practice, KPRC-TV reported.

He was sentenced to a year in jail but later released on an appellate bond. But last month, the appeal was rejected and Reynolds had to return to jail.

The Texas state law doesn’t prohibit individuals with misdemeanor convictions to run for office.

The convicted Texas lawmaker boasts of being supported by Democratic Senate Hopeful Beto O’Rourke, who’s trying to unseat Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. He even appeared in a campaign ad with O’Rourke, KPRC-TV reported. O’Rourke’s campaign didn’t distance from the lawmaker and said they trust the electorate.

Reynolds denies that being in jail would interfere with his day-to-day job as a lawmaker, despite expecting to be detained when the state Congress commences in January.

“Rep. Reynolds has full confidence that his experienced staff will be able to handle any immediate needs of his constituents, during his 4-6 month absence,” read the statement from Reynolds, the Texas Tribune reported last month.

Steve Foster is a Georgia Democrat running for U.S. Congress, but he may not be what the party regards as part of the “blue wave” of Democratic candidates.

The former doctor was arrested last year for driving under influence and shouted “I hate this country” during the arrest, WSB-TV reported. He was sentenced last summer and is spending six months in county jail.

Foster seeks to unseat Republican Rep. Tom Graves, a popular lawmaker in Georgia’s 14th District who won with 75 percent of the vote in 2012.

But that doesn’t discourage Foster from continuing to run the campaign. “Look, I’m not withdrawing,” he recently told the Associated Press.

Biden Tries To Help Dems With GOTV Rally But It Doesn’t Go Well So Trump Has A Little Fun With Him

Joe Biden’s name has been bandied about as a possible 2020 presidential contender.

He’s getting out a bit more, apparently, but he doesn’t seem to be able to draw the massive crowds that Trump does.

Honestly, I’m not sure who would be “excited” to go to a Biden rally. The only thing I can think of attending for is to witness some of his famous gaffes, like when he told a wheelchair-bound state senator to “stand up & let ’em see ya!”

Trump had a little fun at Biden’s expense as they both held rallies in Nevada on Saturday.

Breitbart reported:

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden both campaigned in Nevada on Saturday, but it was clear that Trump bested the former vice president in crowd size.
“By the way, Joe Biden is in Las Vegas,” Trump said, during a rally in Elko, Nevada. “Sleepy Joe Biden, we call him ‘One Percent Joe.’”

Trump noted that despite repeatedly running for president, Biden never got more than one percent support in the polls.

When Trump asked supporters which nickname they preferred, one woman in the crowd shouted “Creepy Joe!”

“She said ‘Creepy Joe,’” Trump said, pointing her out in the crowd. “No, I would never do that, I would never insult him like that.” The “Creepy Joe Biden” nickname grew among Trump supporters, based off of pictures of the former Vice President’s habitual holding and touching women and girls during political events.

Trump said that Biden only had 193 people at his campaign rally in Las Vegas.

“We love Elko, but in all fairness, it’s easier to draw a crowd in Las Vegas,” Trump said.

Trump claimed there were 6-7,000 people who couldn’t get into his rally in Elko.

He said Republicans were going to win big in the 2018 midterm elections.

“The Blue Wave is rapidly being shattered,” Trump said. “Not looking like a blue wave.”

Here’s Trump talking about Biden in Elko, NV.
