Jim Jordan Discusses Rosenstein Testimony: “Rod Rosenstein Was Afraid”…

Ohio representative Jim Jordan gives his opinion on the testimony of former Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein to the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Jordan outlines a sequencing of events that was transparently obvious to Rosenstein in 2017, and shares a viewpoint that Rosenstein was afraid and too weak to shut down the corrupt investigation led by Mueller.

.

It is clear the DOJ, FBI and Intelligence Community group who put the nation through three years of nonsense; and their allied and facilitating media who helped push the investigative fraud; are now attempting to avoid any accountability by calling any review of their malign activity a “conspiracy theory.”  A stunning irony all things considered.

In this example the willful ‘conspiracy’ is not a theory.

      He didn’t look even slightly afraid to me. He was never asked the RIGHT questions as pointed out here by SD and most likely knew he wouldn’t be.

        I agree with jordan. 🌹 rosenstein saw what McCabe and company was capable of. He got the hell out of Dodge. He was a bureaucrat looking to get his pension. He was a coward. Stay safe and move on to the private sector. He was outnumbered and unwilling to stand up. Matt Whitaker was the same. He basically was switzerland. Mccabe and Trump fought it out. Trump won. Then rod came out of his fox hole when Bill the cleaner Barr arrived. Not defending the coward.

            No. Rosenstein was in on it from the beginning. Why do you think he told Trump to fire Comey, it was to help fortify the justification to appoint Mueller. Allowing an all dem special counsel staff, having them write their own scope memos.. oh and proposing wearing a wire✌️

              He fired Comey becaujse he thought the swamp hated Comey due to his Hillary late press conference which they blamed on her loss. When they got angry at him at the Comey firing, he was surprised and excommunicated from the club, so his hiring of Mueller was in effect, to win back their praise. What a horrendous and weak human being. It was all about him.

        I see comments conflating two different things. When Jordan says Rosie afraid, he’s talking about back then, I think….not when he testified at Grahams,sham hearings….

        To me, the most valuable part of this,Jordan interview, was when Jordan openly aknowledged “Frankly, many Republicans too.”
        Which, in context was wanted PDJT OUT of the Oval.

        Next step is to aknowledge that many of those Republicans who wanted PDJT out, are in leadership in Congress, and STILL want him out.

            IMHO, The only reason PDJT hasn’t been CONVICTED by the SENATE, is because he deprived Republicon Senators of an excuse they could use, to justify voting to convict, to the,Republican base.
            IF he had fired Mueller, Sessions, Rosie like they wanted him to,…GONE.

            If he hadn’t had, and,quickly released the transcripts of the Ukraine call, we would have been stuck with Schiffs version, and Bam, GONE.

            Actually, the Senate Republicons don’t want to actually go on record, voting to convict PDJT.
            They just want to be able to SAY they will, if he doesn’t resign.
            The model they are following is Watergate, and its all to give them an excuse, they think we would accept.

              I often wonder if Nixon would have been able to beat the charges bring brought against him had he stood to fight it out rather than capitulate.

              Nixon wasn’t ideal, by any means, but he was a powerful President, and he was feared. So much of the “evidence” from Watergate was after the fact work, mostly done by others.

              I believe the the National Socialists truly believed President Trump was going to fold early on. I think they were shocked when he fought everything they threw at him.

        Rosenstein left the hearing yesterday a man cleansed of guilt. He is free to move on with his life while his actions ruined others lives for absolutely no reason. All I can say is he will pay someday in some way.

    Working theory on this. Rosenstein is the classic swamp creature. No spine and always an eye to self preservation and advancement. So he rolls over on Mueller and studiously avoids “knowing things”—if Mueller can run his scam and come up with something “investigating the man” then Rosenstein is a hero. If he comes up with bupkis, Rosenstein can claim he knows nothing and was deceived by the evil FBI and just has to deal with the “fool” part–but is already comfortably on pension and nothing at risk. Maybe get a book deal too. Win/win for a swamp creature.

      This is essentially how Lee Smith portrayed Rosenstein in his book, The Plot Against The President. Weak, cowardly and incompetent. Basically the embodiment of many of our high ranking govn’t political appointees. One standout passage describes how Rosenstein met with Nunes and claimed he didn’t know what a Woods file was (relates to documenting factual basis for FISA warrants), so Nunes and Patel proceeded to educate him in front of his senior staff. Rosenstein is one of the many clowns of the Leftist Clown World we are currently living in.

    “No,” testified Rosenstein, “I would not.”

    And just like that, it became clear that the national torture of three years of the Russian collusion investigation simply should not have occurred. »

      the point that needs to be emphasized here is that Rosenstein was in charge of the most important investigation in history and he is claiming he did not provide full oversight (read the FISC request etc).

      What incompetence; what dereliction of responsibility and duty! And we are to believe anything he says!

      “. . . and.I say this based on the experience of looking at the House Intelligence Committee, uh, the Republican side of that committee, and its efforts to disparage and interfere with the Mueller campaign. That has not yet been fully investigated. I don’t believe that Mueller investigated any linkage between the Republican House Intelligence Committee efforts and the White House, or their efforts and Trump’s lawyers but I strongly suspect that the House Intelligence Committee Republicans were advised, controlled, or directed by Trump lawyers, either in the White House or on the Trump legal team. And that sorry experience, if that is in fact the case, again an investigation would reveal it but we have had no investigation, should not be replicated in the Senate Judiciary Committee.”

      Whitehouse is a real jerk. A fairly intelligent one though, which makes him unusual for a democrat. He made a point about how Nunes should have been investigated.

    Hey, guys and gals,
    Don’t forget the other track to the Uniparty strategy; stealing back the House by besmirching our VSGPDJT so they could have a Shampeachment party! If the LSM urinalists and DemoKKKrats had not been able to scream about “collusion” and “obstruction” for the year and a half leading up to the 2018 vote we, the people, might have held the house! Instead we got numerous “experts” swearing there was evidence of collusion who then recanted when placed under oath! We need to keep lists of these seditious traitors as they seem intent on forcing a hot “civil war” in their own strongholds and stealing the 2020 election with voter-fraud-by-mail!
    We are at the crossroads now; if Durham starts indicting and we win 2020, America can begin rebuilding! If there is no accountability for the corruption and criminal behavior of our pols and bureaucrats then America will be lost without a long, deep watering of the Tree of Liberty. Keep your powder dry and your eye on the target! Pray for America and President Trump!

    Trump and Rosenstein had met aboard Air Force One in late 2018. Thereafter, Trump said their meeting was “great”. I wish I knew what was said between them. Between that and the fact that Barr is protecting him, I get the feeling that, while he may not have “flipped”, Rosenstein is throwing his FBI buddies under the bus.

      Why is it only Graham’s fault? How about the dem’s, in particular the pos Durbin?

      From the Hill

      …an argument between the chairman (that would be Lindsey) and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who were at times yelling as they debated the merits of the GOP investigation.

      “This is about a president who just can’t get over it, maybe he will never will, and by a chairman who wants him to have another day to make his point about how he was mistreated,” Durbin said.

      Graham interrupted to say: “With all due respect, I don’t buy what you’re saying at all.”

      Graham then said the so-called Steele dossier of opposition research was used to get the surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Durbin chimed in “that is your theory” and Graham rebutted “these are facts.”

    Yeah, remember when they disbanded their gang unit? And look where they are now.

    People seem to forget, or they were not alive, or it didn’t affect them so they don’t care, that the reason we had the “super predator” laws was because of the scourge of gangs we had to fight back against in 1980s-1990s. And believe me, they were super predators then too. And they started them young. And drugs were how they made their “family” money. And killings were for glory and for getting jumped in to a gang, aka initiated.

    OF COURSE the criminal elements/cartels/gangs who been doing the looting wants this done and they are running the streets, the politicians and the gubt anyway.

    This is just the next stop in a long line in the shredding of our laws in the USA. No bail, let people out because of a ridiculous virus, letting illegal aliens rule the cities, not deporting criminal illegal aliens, giving them all kinds of free services, not deporting overstayed visa illegal aliens, the list goes on and on. Not arresting or giving any kind of legal consequences to almost every kind of street the you can find in every major DIM run city.

    I think all the gubt reps need to go and we’ll all find new ones to replace them. Ones that will FOLLOW THE LAW and The Constitution. Not rewrite them. That is not their job.

    Their one and only job is to keep us safe. PERIOD.

    Going forward, Patriot Congressmen would serve the country well to address thIs lack of accountability ‘loophole’ and HAMMER for a procedural change whenever the next FISA re-authorization comes up…
    If we all face reality, when used to protect the homeland (as marketed), FISA ability to root out usurpers of our Republic is not a bad thing. Same as any power, checks & balances must be installed to prevent abuse. Mr. Rosenstein is proof positive that the current ‘take the FBI at its word’ FISA method is woefully inadequate…

    So, learn from the mistake and improve it.

      The key to reforming FISA laws, rules and regs is accountability. If there are no consequences or if the consequences are a mere slap on the wrist, there will be no meaningful reform. Severe punishment and the will to use it is the only way FISA can be reformed. Should this not be done, the only reasonable alternative is disband the program. Period!

    shipwreckedcrew theory (see article post Rosenstein testimony) is that Rosenstein is the classic self-protecting nobody-offending weasel bureaucrat.

    Sundance theory is that ex Fed prosecutor @shipwreckedcrew is an apologist for Da System, and Rosenstein was actively involved or at least knowingly neglectful.

    But it’s also possible both are true: Rosenstein was pushed (by whom?? many have asked this) for DAG because the coup committee knew he was just the manipulable weasel they needed, and as an anti-Trumper (most likely Never Trump Republican, though his sister seems hard left Resistance) he was very happy to play ball and even try to score brownie points with McCabe et al by going out of his way to “help” even more.
