Rod Rosenstein threatened congressional staff. When the bully picks on your little brother, you have to respond. It's time for House Leadership to stand up. https://t.co/2S369POrge— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) June 13, 2018
That way when the DOJ hammers the leaking Dems they can’t say DOJ bowed down to republicans.
There will be more arrests of leakers. I think the Flynn being told to call the Russian diplomat was a set up. Just like I think the Don JR and Wikileaks email was as well.
And it should be mentioned that all of these people DENIED any contact w Russians until they were caught. Very suspicious. Why lie about it if there’s nothing to hide?
They are going to continue to try and make you believe there not swampies on one hand while they continue to circle the wagons with all swampies in the middle until after mid term elections. You guys should be smart enough to know this by now.
Everything is just a shell game to try to keep you guys hoping for change. Trump is trying but I feel the tide turning. The Republican swamp critters are awfully quiet about putting kids in cages right now. I really feel they are getting ready to abandon trump and hand over both houses of Congress this fall so business as usual can continue.
Rosenstein Hid Damning Strzok Text Message “We’ll Stop” Trump From Becoming President From Congressional Investigators For a Month
To a certain extent, I think you are correct. The problem with the Republicans is that in many cases they so over-play their hand and over-hype things, that they end up looking like fools when reality doesn't match up with the their hyperbole...even if the reality is good.
You need to look no further than the recent IG report. Had they been patient, the report is actually loaded with all kinds of damning info, but because the republicans over-hyped it prior to it's release, there was no way it could ever live up to their hype.
The FBI may have "edited and changed" key witness reports in the Hillary Clinton and Russia investigations, a top House Republican charged in a hearing into FBI and Justice Department misconduct Tuesday.
Freedom Caucus Chair Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C, also raised the possibility that the FBI misled the DOJ watchdog in an attempt to hide the identities of FBI employees who were caught sending anti-Trump messages.
The House Judiciary and Oversight committees were questioning Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz over his bombshell report into FBI and DOJ misconduct during the Hillary Clinton email probe.
"The other thing that I would ask you to look into, there is growing evidence that 302s were edited and changed,” Meadows told Horowitz. “Those 302s, it is suggested that they were changed to either prosecute or not prosecute individuals. And that is very troubling.”
OTHER HEARING DRAMA: DEM REP WARNS OF GOP PLOT TO OUST DEPUTY AG ROSENSTEIN 'ON FRIDAY'
So-called "302s" are reports on witness interviews compiled by federal investigators. Horowitz said later he has additional information suggesting that the witness reports were changed after-the-fact in both the Clinton and Russia probes -- a particularly alarming possibility given the IG report's findings of bias in those investigations.
Horowitz suggested that the IG is reviewing information concerning modified 302s, saying his office intended to "follow up" on the matter.
In a dramatic moment, Meadows then directly asked Horowitz whether two anonymous FBI employees identified as making anti-Trump statements in the IG's report were named Kevin Clinesmith and Sally Moyer.
Horowitz refused to confirm the employees' identities, which the FBI has declined to publicly reveal, citing the supposed sensitivity of their counterintelligence matters.
But Meadows suggested that justification may have been a sham.
"If that’s the reason the FBI is giving, they’re giving you false information."
- GOP Rep. Mark Meadows “They don’t work in counterintelligence," Meadows said. "If that’s the reason the FBI is giving, they’re giving you false information, because they work for the [FBI] general counsel."
In the IG report released last Thursday, the two unnamed anti-Trump FBI employees reacted with shock and dismay at Trump's election.
“I am numb," one wrote on Election Day. “Viva le resistance,” the lawyer wrote later, in response to what he would do now that Trump had won.
