Sunday Talks: Chairman Bob Goodlatte Discusses Upcoming Rosenstein Hearing and Questioning…

Representative Bob Goodlatte is the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, and the senior chair of the joint Judiciary/Oversight committee looking into the activity of the DOJ and FBI during the 2016 election.  Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to appear before the committee leadership on October 24th.

Maria Bartiromo has stayed on top of this story almost from the beginning. Bartiromo has a very strong foundational knowledge that allows her to probe Goodlatte on his specific intentions for the upcoming testimony of DAG Rod Rosenstein.

      That motto might well apply to the four jack-legs who are set to question RR. I trust none of them. Goodlatte keeps harping about another special counsel. Why? One lobotomy is enough.

      • Not so sure. Remember the IG can only investigate what was done within 4 walls at DOJ and FBI, and only question those left. That leaves a lot of investigation outside that scope, that is instructive, including Simpson, Steele, what did CIA do with Halper, Mifsud, et al.

        No word out of UT on Hubers grand jury as is appropriate, but his scope is also limited to DOJ/FBI.

        What about abuse of NSA tools and take? Who is authorized to ask those questions, and is responsible for investigating that for oversight. How about the FISA court itself- CJ Roberts oversees that- not a peep so far, about process…

        How about the media participants, direct like Deep Throat Watkins sucking secrets out of senior Senate Staffers. How about the obviously dialed in WAPO and NYT reporters who got the leaks out of FBI, and DOJ? How many of them broke rules on propagating classified material, etc.

        Is Stealth Jeff or Rosie gonna order that prosecution up, inside DOJ, and do they even have the ability to “go there” or integrity to do so, when obviously current and past actors were players in that game? We see and have seen just how impotent Congress is with its oversight- what are they gonna do- issue a contempt citation for the AG? Yeah, that will work…

        Remember we are still under the wartime powers granted to the intelligence agencies to spy on ALL of us, since 9/11, and that was just reinforced, and weaponized further…for the purpose of investigating enemies foreign and domestic…but its clearly BEEN misused here, and most likely in past. THATS WHAT DEEP STATE FEARS by opening this Pandora’s box.

        So, how are you gonna do it, if NOT a special counsel, properly scoped and supervised, with as much transparency as possible. Its time to unwrap this stinking bundle of corrupt bureaucrats that have been rotting in a dark place for far too long, IMHO.

          “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?”

          You mean we’ve had this problem before? Well, maybe not us, but it’s a known problem of government from time immemorial? Paradoxically, that’s a relief. I’d hate to have to consider that we face an unknown and new plague.
          Reading the day-to-day details of this corruption is so frustrating. So many people, including SD, appear fed up. But the truth is inexorable. The liberal Establishment edifice is collapsing under the weight of its own corruption and internal contradictions, as it must, just as the conservative Establishment began to teeter from its own corruptions and contradictions back in the 1960’s. To put it plainly, the libs’ time is up! Now it won’t happen tomorrow, or the next day, so the articles at CTH won’t get any less infuriating any time sooner, but the die is cast, and the mandate of heaven has passed to a new King. In about 50 years, he too will lose it.

    Holders’s corrupt and radicalized DOJ I am not so sanguine about, and know less about the inner workings, so I’d trust more of what J.Christian Adams has to say over at PJM on that.

    “A court reporter will be present to record all questions asked and answers provided,” the statement said. “The interview will be under oath. The transcript will then be reviewed by the Intelligence Community to avoid the public dissemination of classified or otherwise protected information. Once cleared, the transcript will be publicly available.”

    The arrangement makes no mention of a subpoena, meaning Rosenstein will not be legally compelled to answer any questions. In addition, it appears that the Republican lawmakers who have been agitating for Rosenstein’s appearance, including Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Ohio, will have to try to get their questions asked by the committee chairmen.

    Robert Mueller’s Beltway Cover-Up

    “…After all, Mueller took his job not at the behest of the man who by all accounts he is likely to professionally and personally disdain, Donald Trump, but of the blue-chip Beltway elite of which he is a charter member. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed him nearly a year ago to lead an investigation without parameters. That’s because Mueller’s job is to obscure the abuses of the US surveillance apparatus that occurred under the Obama administration.

    The fact that someone at the level of former FBI director was called in to sweep up the mess left by bad actors in the bureau and Central Intelligence Agency and other parts of the intelligence bureaucracy suggests that the problems are even worse than previously thought. And that means the constituency for Mueller’s political intervention is enormous….”

    This interview in a “classified setting” needs to be video taped. Printed words don’t always fully communicate what is happening. Then that video tape needs to be shown to Representatives Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz, and John Ratcliff. If they say it passes the smell test I’ll consider the interview might be well done.

    On 9/21/18 Rod Rosenstein said: “I never pursued or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false.”

    Saying you never “pursued or authorized” something is not the same as saying you never discussed possibilities and legal ramifications of something.

    Saying you didn’t “advocate” for something is not the same as saying you didn’t advise someone who is advocating for something on how they would go about it.

    I don’t trust Rod Rosenstein. If the 4 Representatives above say in this instance they trust what he is saying I’ll draw back my antennae of alertness on this specific thing. Rosenstein did after all sign the FISA warrant so I don’t trust him.

    In my mind I think of Rosenstein as the Cheshire cat. I think of these lines by Lewis Carroll when I see his big grin:

    Alice said:

    “`And how do you know that you’re mad?’

    `To begin with,’ said the Cat, `a dog’s not mad. You grant that?’
    `I suppose so,’ said Alice.

    `Well, then,’ the Cat went on, `you see, a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased.

    Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.’”

    I always envision Rosenstein grinning and wagging his tail when I read stmts such as his 9/21/18 statement on not “pursuing or authorizing” or “advocating” recording the President.

    Look squirrel then down the rabbit hole.

      I keep wondering what kind of conversation it was that would have caused even a sarcastic response such as “what do you want me to do, wear a wire”?

    Nuke them all. This is indescribably absurd what they do. Chasing Corsi and Stone around? Good Grief. Assange busted them all in crimes and they are still losing their minds over it.

  38. Agree Maria is the best.
    There were two major implications of this that I found interesting. First, if the Dems take the House in the midterms, Goodlatte essentially tipped the ball to Senate Judiciary (the R’s there managed the Kavanaugh mess very well, so that is reassuring). Lindsay will likely be Chairman of the Judiciary Comm. in the next Congress; I can argue both positive and negative of that.
    Goodlatte also was strongly pushing for a special prosecutor for the FBI/DOJ collusion with the Dems. I’m not in favor of this, mostly because it will allow more redactions/hiding of evidence.

    Not like anyone has me on speed dial asking my opinion LOL.

    I’m sick and tired of closed door meetings! Bring these bums in and chastise them publicly. Allow public questions. I’d would select Sundance to ask about 25 questions for me!

    “Actually, plenty is happening. It’s just that the people doing these things aren’t phoning Sean or Laura or Tucker or anybody else and leaking to them about it. They have good, solid, professional reasons for keeping the probes under wraps and non-public until they are ready to move forward into the open.

    Rosenstein’s thankless job for the past two years has been to hide all these investigations from the news media and from Congress until they are completed. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s his job to hide these investigations from Congress.

    Why is that, you ask? Because members of Congress are under criminal investigation for illegally leaking classified information to the news media.” (from The Epoch Times article, cited in earlier comments)

      PP, I’ve been thinking the same thing. RR has been making excuses and dodging questions because of indictments coming. That’s what he told President Trump on AF One and why he still has his job. It’s a whole lot easier for President Trump to MAGA if the Justice Department starts the indictments and or releases the Fisa Docs. The image is much cleaner that way.

      So the whole “sting” is to catch Congressfolk doing what they’ve been doing for….well…..ever?????

      “Never mind the COUP……………….we found LEAKERS!”

      I predict many a “I wasn’t intentionally grossly negligent” arguments in our future for the next 10 years if that’s all this is.

  42. The air is going out of this tire; it’s getting pretty low now. I don’t care at all about Goodlatte or Congressional “investigations”. Pretend you’re walking by a department store that went out of business and looking at the sad remains in the big window; whether it’s still full of the display that once was, or emptied and full of trash, the fact is it’s just a display window, and nothing is being bought and sold here anymore.

    Congress is a joke, the DOJ is a tired old shaggy dog that’s hardly more than a old rug lying around that needs to be trashed. The FBI is a mob front, trying now to stay under the radar of the cops, who are all on the take anyway.

    They’re all trying to sell us on the idea to “move along” and get on the “new bus” they’re pushing.

    Imagine they are all wearing Nixon masks, and all saying together, “I am not a crook”. Only in this case they are, and we know they are.

    This is no way to go into the elections…depressed through lack of a proper denouement, the punishment that is supposed to — and must, if you want the public trust — follow the crime.

    They are interviewing the wrong people! They need to speak to DNI Coats and Admiral Mike Rogers. They are the intelligence agencies. They gather intelligence and if they suspect something is against the law they give that intelligence to the LE agencies, you guessed it the FBI. Both Directors Coats and Rodgers were eager to tell exactly what they knew and know back when they testified before the SSCI. Just go back and look at the video on YouTube.

    Also I’ll bet you that both would gladly testify under oath and would show up on time and there would be no need for a Democratic Congressman to be there. They know what happened they gather intelligence.

      Jane thanks for the video and the alternate look at the RR and Sessions issue. Also sorry for the late reply. I really like and respect Joe’s opinions. As Iv’e posted before I would like to see the Special Council Keep going with Joe deGenova in charge to look at the real Russia collusion, Clinton Foundation, Perkins Coie, DNC server and Awans.
      I’m just torn in half cause I can’t figure out RR or Sessions. It’s probably as big as the pimple on my nose, I just can’t see it. LOL Thanks again Mark in FL. too.
