Calls Democrats accusations against William Barr's handling of Mueller report "Completely Bizarre"
Since Robert Mueller turned in his report to AG William Barr, the Democrats and the leftist media had accused Barr of covering up evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia. However, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein finds the accusations bizarre and strange.
Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein on Thursday endorsed Attorney General William Barr against allegations that he is misleading Congress and the public about Robert Muellers Russia report.
Rosenstein said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that Hes (William Barr) being as forthcoming as he can, and so this notion that hes trying to mislead people, I think is just completely bizarre.
Sadly, the Democrats have accused Barr of misleading the public with false information about Robert Muellers findings from his 2 1/2 year investigation, which explored the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. Also, the probe was to determine whether President Trump obstructed justice by firing James Comey.
Oddly enough, the Democrats were calling for the firing of James Comey after Trump won the presidency in 2016. However, because it was Trump that fired him, the Democrats claimed that Trump was obstructing justice.
Barr sent a letter to Congress on March 24 saying that Mueller was unable to prove that collusion occurredvindicating President Trump on the obstruction of justice accusations. Barr said that Mueller declined to make a decision one way or the other on whether to recommend an indictment against Trump.
What the left refuses to realize is that you cant obstruct justice when there was no crime in the first place. Yet, it doesnt stop the leftist media from reporting and attacking Barr anyway.
Moreover, Jerry Nadler is now calling for Barr to release the unredacted Mueller report to Congress and allow them to decide what to release to the public and what to redact. Nadler knows that Barr cant do that. There is information in the report that would expose jurors and other innocent people.
Not only cant Barr release the full report, but it is against the law to do so. The Democrats know this. They only want the full report so they can leak it to the media. Barr wont let that happen.
A man trying to save his own donkey?
See? He’s one of the good guys!
You would think a man of his intelligence would understand it completely.
Rod Rosenstein is an enigma.
Is he the leaker?
Is he a ‘white hat’ or a ‘black hat’?
Is he the whistle-blower or the spy/informant?............
That’s my take for sure.
Oh, I’m sure he does.......................
So now Rosenstein is part of this cover-up? Sounds more like j things aren’t going good for the Democrats!
Kind of like the guy in the elevator saying who farted.
Or, is he a black hat that got busted, is under the thumb of white hats and doing what he’s told, when he’s told as part of a plea deal that spares his life on treason and sedition charges?
I think he is trying to be a white hat after being a black hat for so long. He knows his a** may be in a sling and the only way to avoid going to jail may be to sing and cooperate fully.
“Rod Rosenstein is an enigma.”
Rod Rosenstein has proven to be dishonest and deceitful.
There is no mystery or enigma there.
He offered to wear a wire to entrap Trump.
He worked with McCabe.
He signed an illegal and fraudulent FISA warrant.
He refused to provide information under subpoena to Congress.
What we know for sure is, RR is the guy who took control of the investigation knowing that otherwise McCabe would weaponize it against Trump. We’ve never heard Trump say anything bad about RR, nor given him a nickname. We know he never was fired despite all the foot-stomping from the cheap seats.
So if lone can accept the possibility that Trump and his inner circle know more than people on internet forum sites and has the most to gain/lose from RR, maybe it would be prudent to just shut up and wait until facts are known and his role will be much more clear.
Or continue to stomp-feet, which is pretty entertaining.
Somebody, we don’t know who yet, informed President Trump, then candidate, that Trump Tower had been bugged and they moved campaign functions out of there pronto.
Somebody, we don’t know who yet, kept newly elected President Trump constantly informed of what was happening within the FBI...............
See my post #15............
It is no more complicated than that.
Joe DiGenova was on Howie Carr show on Wed.
He said this would happen.
Keep you friends close, your enemies closer.
The man should get some sort of credit for quoting Captain Obvious.
Interesting that Comey said at the time that the allegation of wiretapping were not supported.
How would he know one way or the other?
