Deputy Attorney General Defends Robert Mueller To Congress

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein speaks before a House Committee on the Judiciary oversight hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday Dec. 13 2017 in Washington. Two FBI officials who would later be assigned to the special counsel's investigation

But at this point, they have almost lost their minds.

Jordan said he believes Strzok is the "guy who bootstrapped up the dossier" and "dressed it all up and made it look like it was real intel" and took it to a secret FISA court to get surveillance warrants on the Trump campaign. "And wow, Donald Trump is an enormous d*uche".

That is not just the lunatic ravings of one extremist. Mueller is a close friend or James Comey, whom President Trump fired.

Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen (Tenn.) said on Wednesday that "everyone respects" Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but was interrupted by Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert (Texas), who disagreed. Ms Page also spent some time on the special counsel investigation but returned to her normal duties before the existence of the text messages was made public. They tell us nothing about Mueller's investigation, since they were sent before there was any investigation. "They are strong-willed people with strong opinions like the rest of us", he said.

"Our goal, congressman, is to make sure it's clear to you we are not concealing anything that is embarrassing to the Federal Bureau of Investigation", he said. They seem to be saying that if an investigator is revealed to have political leanings, then that investigator is by definition warping the investigation in service of his politics.

"It's time for subpoenas from our committee, not just from the intelligence committee, but from our committee".

Twitter makes it easier to rant by making tweetstorms an official feature
Just last month, Twitter doubled the character limit for tweets from 140 to 280, in a major shift. The new threading tool will roll out to all users in the "coming weeks", Reddy said.

Overcoming or reversing the will of the electorate in this way predictably would trigger a major public pushback, even given the fact that Trump actually lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by about 3 million ballots. Because of this, some Trump allies say, it must therefore be shut down. And whatever the staff-level composition of the investigation may be, the law enforcement leadership is hardly a Democratic bastion committed to going after President Trump. Republicans have seized on the exchange of texts between the two officials who worked for Mueller to suggest the team is biased against Trump and its conclusions can't be trusted. "It is our responsibility to ensure those opinions do not influence our actions".

Rosenstein faced a series of questions from Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee, who have recently amped up their efforts to discredit Mueller's probe as biased by seizing on reports of two anti-Trump, pro-Hillary agents being involved in the Russian Federation investigation.

"My god, I'm so embarrassed for them".

The FBI provided the first batch of messages to Horowitz on July 20. As one agent put it, "The FBI is Trumpland".

In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot", a "loathsome human", an "enormous do-che", and said "this man can not be president". Kenneth Starr, who tirelessly investigated the contents and activities of what was in Bill Clinton's trousers, was a Republican.

Reports this past summer found that several of the lawyers on Mueller's team donated to Democrats. One exchange between Strzok and his then-girlfriend Lisa Page specifically names Deputy Director Andrew "Andy" McAbe in what appears to be a plot to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Does that mean that the FBI and the Justice Department are fatally biased in Donald Trump's favor when it comes to the investigations they pursue? It may not in the end produce his removal, but at a minimum it should encourage a national debate on the imperative of re-examining the process of electing the American president, and of protecting it from foreign powers that would interfere with the will of the people. But the possibility that he'll find a great deal more - and present it with unimpeachable evidence - is precisely what has Republicans in such a panic.
