Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says there is no good cause to fire special counsel Robert Mueller from the Russia probe.

He testified before the House Judiciary Committee early Wednesday.

Rosenstein said Mueller made the right decision to reassign FBI Agent Peter Strzok because of his inherit bias against President Trump, which was made clear through text messages that are currently being investigated.

“…justice is not only our name, but justice is our mission,” stated Rosenstein. “Justice requires a fair and impartial process…that’s why we have a special responsibility to follow ethical and professional standards.”

The deputy attorney general also said the special counsel would need to seek permission to expand the scope of the investigation, and assured the committee Mueller is handling the probe with extreme care and professionalism.

    I still do not understand how the investigation continues if it is now known that the premise was made up.

  • nfcapitalist

    Hey… pretty cool… click on Block User and Rufus is gone… I like it!!!!

  • lucky duck

    TREASON !!! Not collusion.Fire all of the traitors and take their RETIREMENT.LOCK THEM UP.The dems heads would look good on that border wall!

    • Cheryl the Deplorable

      It’s a classic case of Treason and we can’t let our Politicians sweep it under the rug. This is too big for them to even try.

      • Rufus Firefly

        Classic case of treason??? Not by any stretch of the imagination. We have no Reichswereid, much as Trump may like one.

        • Cheryl the Deplorable

          Intelligence agencies colluding with Politicians to take out the elected President is Treason. anyone connected to that dossier is guilty . look up the word Treason and Sedition. Just because CNN refuses to report it doesn’t mean it isn’t happening they might be implicated too. Fusion did pay off Journalists let’s see who they are.

          • Rufus Firefly

            It is not treasonable to investigate and make public the *president’s treason – it is patriotic to defend our country against ALL enemies, among them Trump.

          • Cheryl the Deplorable

            You don’t know anything that’s going on around you. The Media has done their job well in this, keeping people like you “Unaware and compliant”

          • Cheryl the Deplorable

            That was going to be their defense but they couldn’t get Trump or any of his staff to take the bait, their traps have been exposed for what they were, traps. Now neither the FBI, the DOJ or Mueller could find anything else so they are screwed. They have no crime to justify spying on him and leaking out confidential information to the press. all crimes.
            PS: They are being exposed everyday, why do you think CNN and the MSM aren’t reporting on ANY of this? “Unaware and Compliant”
            You probably have no clue what I am even talking about.

          • Wanda

            Even if you have to lie and make stuff up to do it? Who defends us from those people?

          • Wanda

            Agreed. Transparency is the best policy.

  • DrMitoFit

    How is this not a deep state conspiracy to protect one party and delegitimize the other? The FBI’s biased actions in protecting Hillary and falsely accusing Trump are 1,000 times more sinister than Watergate. I watched “All the President’s Men” this past weekend. This FBI coup is much, much worse.

    • Rufus Firefly

      Calling Trump an idiot is not bias. It’s simply the belief of a majority of the American people.

  • Roy Beane

    Just think about this. These deep state Dimmocratic thugs do about anything they want to in defiance of the law, and the only thing they fear at all are the voters at the ballot box. That is about the only thing that exercises any restraint whatsoever upon them since they’re already ignoring the Law of the Land and now the FBI and the DOJ both now appear to be seriously compromised and full of these thugs. Wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t get together behind closed doors and try to figure out a way to change the Constitution so that even the voters are cut out of the picture….THEN they would really have a DICTATORSHIP completely free of any accountability whatsoever to the People. Dam scary thought….hope we don’t ever see this happen, because the country is in mortal danger from these people of being completely transformed into something totally different from what the Founding Fathers envisioned in the beginning of our republic.

    • Cheryl the Deplorable

      “Wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t get together behind closed doors and try to figure out a way to change the Constitution so that even the voters are cut out of the picture”

      They have figured it out by using voter fraud.
      I hope Pence is on this Alabama vote, FOX knew what was going to happen ahead of time with their Jones Poll out days before the vote.

      • Scotty

        That’s because fox isn’t what it used to be since Murdoch’s kids took over. OAN is the way to go now for truth in politics, although I still watch F&F in the morning.

        • nfcapitalist

          Wonder what will change with Disney if or when they start steering FOX… they might come to OAN, at least the smart ones… if they turn into CNN light much like their comments board I’m gone.

          • Scotty

            They said Disney won’t be buying fox news or sports. We’ll see.

  • Roy Beane

    Rosenstein is either complicit in everything Mueller is up to and is in this thing himself up to his eyeballs, OR is it really possible that he is really THAT STUPID and out of touch with what the Special Counsel is doing? Either way I wouldn’t trust him across the room, let alone with running the entire DOJ since Sessions has disappeared from view.

    • Cheryl the Deplorable

      Every move Rosenstein has made since taking Office as assistant AG has been monitored. There’s a reason he was picked and it’s not because Sessions is stupid.

      • Vera Orsova

        I very much hope you are right.

  • jlsharks1

    “there is no good cause”
    Are you serious, are you waiting for the fake news to tell you that this is serious. I thought Africa had corrupt politicians.

  • Lonney L Sennett

    Rosentstein is directly responsible for this debacle. He failed to abide by federal law when setting up Muller’s witch hunt. He purposely gave him “Free Reign” to do what ever he wanted. And based on what has come out about the people Muller brought into his team, I mean “what ever he wanted”. Rosenstein needs to be the first one fired, followed by anyone that has shown bias in the Muller team and the FBI. This far left meddling must come to an end!

    • nfcapitalist

      I keep hoping this is a ruse… that we have untouchables gathering up the traitors for indictments… crazy?

      • Lonney L Sennett

        Unfortunately, they all think they are untouchables.

  • Larry Spiller

    You seem to think that all of us registered as Democrats share in your leftist insanity. Well we don’t. Keep doing as you are. We’ll vote for President Trump and more republicans again. Running candidates like HRC and Sanders is why we have President Trump. And that is a good thing. The sordid affair is this current class of democrats who are DNC, HRC, Sanders supporters and leftists of the worst kind. Be damned if I’ll vote for any of them for congress.

  • turtledad51

    The face of a lying weasel.

  • Jimbo

    Sadly there is not much difference between our Republican and Democrat leadership in congress. All they care about is their special projects and being reelected.

    • nfcapitalist

  • Varangian Guard

    Chris Wray had a better presence before the committee. Rosen-stoned exhibited an air of arrogance and superiority for someone under the gun. I like confidence under pressure, that was not confidence, it was an inside man.
    Who the heck is the AG these days? They put Sessions into office and he ties his own hands behind his back. They put his old job on the block and then give it away to the opposition. This is all preordained script to undermine everything the majority voters asked for. Since the GUB can’t get anything done, they want to give it to the progressives so the justice department can take action over it’s own citizens for dissension, rather than correct what is wrong. They are taking the path of NO resistance. McConnell and Ryan want to continue to pass nothing.
    If they do get a tax bill passed instead of lay down and wait for Jones to be sworn in and vote their next trick will be to resume their attacks on the POTUS from within. NOTHING is as it seems.

    • nfcapitalist

      Remembering the IRS enjoying Vegas and putting on Plays to raise the American citizen’s respect for IDIOCRACY… as if stupidity is a virtue?

    Any business manager that encounters a segment of the business that operates completely contrary to the vision of the company based on profits, safety, graft or performance and openly defies that vision is always terminated. Why is this any different? The entire management level (TOP FLOOR) of the FBI MUST be terminated or at least re-assigned to office duty in Guam.

    • nfcapitalist

      I’m with you on that but Guam? Maybe Benghazi…?

  • a voice of concern

    BS

  • a voice of concern

    Does this clown actually think anyone older than 5 years old believes any of this garbage?
    Good grief, this the FBI no Mayberry RFD. It is my perception and my perception is reality to me, that the entire FBI is an unprofessional collection of political hacks who spend all day screwing around with office romances and trying to sabotage the life of anyone who has a different political view form them selves and since they were so open about it, it only seems reasonable the entire department of the FBI ALL think and act the same way.
    DISBAND THE FBI NOW, MERGE IT WITH THE BATF & FOREST SERVICE AND PUT IT UNDER THE MANAGEMENT OF HOBBY LOBBY OR CHIC-FILET.

    • nfcapitalist

      Yes on one… no on two.

  • sillystring

    I wonder who made the Freudian slip? “…reassign FBI Agent Peter Strzok because of his bias against President Trump…” Inherit means, among other things, “receive or be left with (a situation, object, etc.) from a predecessor or former owner”. Inherent means “existing in something as a permanent, essential, or characteristic attribute”

    So, either Strzok inherited his bias from the deep state, or his bias exist as a part of his psyche. Which is it? And in the end, does it really matter? FBI has no credibility any more.

    • wBev

      Or maybe his inherit bias is against anyone who inherits money – the old class warfare theme again. LOL!! So funny that slipped through spell check.

    • nfcapitalist

      … works either way… true.

  • Glenda Hammer

    Under Obama there wasn’t a federal agency that wasn’t corrupt. Had Hillary been elected, every dirty thing these 2 did was going to be hidden forever.
    Why isn’t there charges of treason brought against Obama for telling illegals it was their duty to vote for Hillary, to keep them and their families from being deported? He also promised them no charges being brought against them for breaking the law? This came from a sitting President.
    Obama and Hillary are the ones who colluded with Russia, when they sold America’s uranium to Putin and Russia for Hillary’s tax free 145 million dollars, sent to the corrupt Clinton Foundation.

    Rosenstein lied in the public comments he made about the integrity of the investigation. When he authorized Mueller he did not limit the scope of the investigation, Mueller can go anywhere there was suspected Russian collusion.

    We all know where that was and yet he has a conviction of lying to the FBI in a non-related case. Rosenstein should be charged with lying to the congress.

  • nfcapitalist

    Okay… Robert Mueller, the decorated USMC veteran who shot and was shot at by communists that were and are totalitarian barbarians (and they were and are), an officer and a gentleman who served as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation…

    … how does it figure that this man could or would protect the corrupting of the FBI and DOJ by that pot smoking son of an unmarried communist mother and absent father who hated European colonialism and transferred that hatred to our country, the USA… how did that happen…

    … and my reluctance to believe that could or would happen, gives me hope that he is collecting our enemies around him to gather the evidence to destroy them and save this Republic… crazy?

    • Cheryl the Deplorable

      There is that hope, President Trump talked to him the day before he was assigned as Special Counsel.
      Media claimed it might be for Comey’s position in the FBI but Muller wouldn’t qualify since he already served two terms. Mueller wasn’t that good for President Trump to jump through all the hoops to change the rules for him.
      Some of us believe President Trump gave him an alternative, you’re either with us or you’re going down with the rest of them. Mueller does have an excellent Military background, I think his patriotic duty has been put back on track.
      That’s just a theory of course just like all the others until the sealed indictments are revealed.

  • Doug Sterling

    Why was Rosenstein hired?

  • limapie

    Rosenstein NEEDS Mueller to cover Rosenstein’s DIRT! THAT IS WHY MUELLER WAS WEASELED into place!

    You see, Rosenstein and Mueller go way back. Rosenstein was attorney in Maryland. Mueller was FBI director. They had a case of Russia crimes etc around the time that Hillary was trying to ‘earn’ money by okaying the uranium sale. Mueller and the FBI were surveillancing Mikeran…a Russian who was up to no good.
    The FBI got the evidence to nail him WELL BEFORE the Uranium One deal transpired. But the case was not brought forth against the Russian. Mueller left as FBI director in 2013. It wasn’t until 2014, that the Mikeran case was brought forth BY ROSENSTEIN, who had worked closely with Mueller on getting the needed evidence!
    In the mean time…Obama IGNORED all the evidence of corruption from the Russian and agreed (late 2010) to the sale of uranium…so Hillary could earn her money. Mueller HAD briefed the president on all of this corruption from the Russian. Obama who had authority to override all the agencies ok’s….Obama did not. He blessed the deal anyway!

    So…Mikeran was finally put in jail for 4 years…after Obama was out.

    Those two….Rosenstein and Mueller are thick as thieves. And Mueller was PLANTED to cover all their dirty tracks during those years.

    • Rufus Firefly

      Where did you dredge up that nonsense?

      • limapie

        There was a boomshell revelation when a news organization was reviewing the evidence in the Mikeran case. The documents in that case PROVED against Mikeran..but ALSO PROVED Obama and Hillary were up to no good.

The evidence is freely available, but you won’t find it on Fox, Breitbart, Infowars, OAN, or other alt-right media devoted to subverting the institutions of our democracy. They are wittingly or unwittingly complicit in this foreign attack by spreading the lie that there is no evidence.

    They want you to mistrust the press, the courts, the intelligence community, law enforcement, and other institutions that preserve our democracy. They have served Putin’s aim to sow discord in the free world.

    All the texts/emails in the world couldn’t prove it. A “perception”(not proof) of influence…yes.
    Unless you’re a mind reader it’s not possible and they know it!

      August 15, 2016, FBI Agent Strzok tells FBI Lawyer Lisa Page:

      “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
      ….
      “Yes, that would be a conspiracy; being discussed in Andrew McCabe’s office. A few weeks later (October 2016), the FBI and DOJ did get the FISA warrant they were discussing in August 2016.”

      The text about Trump being an idiot is not evidence of boas. It is evidence of keen perception.

      • nfcapitalist

        Ridiculous… what, the Bill Clinton, ‘You can’t prove it,’ defense, or “it depends on the meaning of the word… is?”

        Ridiculous.

        • Rufus Firefly

          Nope Trump is an idiot. His own NSA said so. His SecState called him a f’ing moron. Just takes a little observation to agree.

  • Bud

    What “Trump-Putin conspiracy”? There has been no evidence of any such thing.

  • Bud

    Yes, and the normal process was controlled by Obama and Hillary. Somehow the pay to play operation of Hillary at the State Department kicked into high gear, and the Clinton Crime Family Slush Fund came out $145 million richer.

  • Bud

    Trump and Putin didn’t do anything at all, comrade.

  • Bud

    As an American citizen, I am more concerned about why you and others feel so compelled to spread such vicious lies. The only collusion was between the Democrat/CPUSA Party and the Russians.

  • Bud

    Someone claiming to be a Republican doesn’t make it so. Jacob Javits also claimed to be a Republican and was even elected to office as a Republican.

  • Bud

    “…justice is not only our name, but justice is our mission,” stated Rosenstein. “Justice requires a fair and impartial process…

    The FBI already had the complete unmasking of all his conversations with the Russian Ambassador. Everything that was done and said was lawful and legal. Then why did they interview Flynn with no warning and no lawyer. TO ENTRAP HIM. I would like to hear why he lied to the FBI and to Pence. I remember about 10 months ago, when President Trump said Flynn should be able to tell his story. Right there, I knew this was a witch hunt. The other three screw em if they cheated on their taxes.

    • Rufus Firefly

      No lawyer? How do you know that? If he did not have one, Flynn is stupid. Having a lawyer present would have been his choice.

      • gregg56

        You, obviously, did not hear the news report that Comey just called Flynn to ask if he could talk while Comey was there for another reason. Sounds like entrapment from where I sit.

        • It was. In a court of law this case will be dismissed on the basis that no attorney was present.

          • Rufus Firefly

            You do know that Flynn pleaded guilty and is now a convicted felon? That means no appeal.

    You know to be absolutely honest, I don’t know Rosenstein. The man himself I mean. I mean I know he’s the
    Assistant AG, but I haven’t studied much of his history. I guess I’m just a Trump holdout to begin with, and I believe this whole affair is just a way to get Trump.

    But I particularly don’t like Mueller. I think he has some dirt on him in all of this. I think he’s part of the other side of the equation. By that I mean the Clinton side. We’ll see.

    • Rufus Firefly

      Rosenstein and Mueller are both Republicans. Rosenstein was appointed AAG by Trump. Mueller is a wounded combat veteran officer of marines with a Bronze Star w/V device. He was named FBI Director by Geo W Bush (whom I am now missing). All of this nonsense is being stirred up by Trump and those who do not love their country.

      • Greg Waters

        There is a misconception here that if you like Trump you like Republicans. The deep state RINOs are in just as deep as the Clinton Crime Syndicate. there are politicians on both sides of the aisle that are making bank self dealing from the largesse.

            There is zero evidence that Trump conspired with Russia. They’ve been digging for over a year now: Zilch! Zero! Nada!

        He won’t be convicted of anything. You’re dreaming.

        The only “collusion” conducted in the interest of effecting the last election was done by Hillary and her twisted cabal of commies.

        We know for a fact that the Clinton campaign paid a foreign agent to generate dirt on Trump derived from Russian agents in an attempt to tilt the election to her favor.

        If there was any “Russian Collusion” during the campaign, it was done by Hillary.

        Wheres the investigation? Where is Mueller? Why isn’t Rosenstein looking into this?
        Where is the prosecution for destroying E-Mails which were under subpoena?
        Where is the prosecution for transmitting classified material through an un-secured Server?
        Why was Hillary never placed under oath?
        Why was she allowed to destroy her cell phones with a hammer?
        Why were there no notes taken during her interview?
        Why were her co-conspirators allowed to sit in during her interview?
        Why was Comey’s exculpatory press conference written BEFORE Hilllary was even interviewed?
        Why was Hillary’s husband meeting with the A.G. Lynch on the tarmac prior to Comey’s Press Conference?

        There’s more than just smoke here. It’s a damned blazing inferno!

      • monorprise

        Consperacy isn’t a crime Rufus, only consperacy to break anther spesfic law.

        The question is what spesfic law was broken which Rod appointed the special proscutor to investigate as is required by department regulations?

        It can’t be ‘Obstruction of Justice’ eyther because presidents are legally incapable of ‘obstructing justice’. As head of the executive branch the president can end or alter any executive branch investigation at any time for any reason. That is what they are elected or not elected to do.

        Thus far Trump has chosen not to for political reasons. If you ask me that is a mestakes given the absence of a spesfic crime to investigate.

        The FBI is wasting enomus amount of tax payer dollars (6+ million already) and vital FBI resources on a witch hunt for crimes that there is still no evidence even took place.

        There is no body, no missing person, no missplaced information, no advantages information, not even a honest lead, no nonthing beyond the fact that Trump won an election a few corrupt FBI agents clearly didn’t want him to win. Everything else so far has been manufacturer including technically the process crimes.

        If it is fair to send the FBI looking for any possible crime anyone or their associates might have committed in absence of evidence of a original crime?

        If so then why not investigate every Democrat until we either find what ever crime they committed at any time in their long past or indused them into a process crime like Scooter Libby?

        If however we are to be fair and follow the existing law that requires evidence of a crime to be investigated first then there has to be a spesfic crime. Did anyone ask Rob what it was?

        Or was this whole thing Rob’s own criminal falure to follow department regulations?

        There was eyther a spesfic crime to be investigated or Rob should be fired for violating department regulations.

        This kind of violation of the law can’t be allowed in a democracy with as many laws as our own less any opposition party be under prepetual investigation by the party in power until a crime is found or indused.

        Obama may have turned this the FBI in to a political hit squad rather than a law enforcement agency but that too must be addressed or the FBI abandoned in the interest of preserving democracy.

        • Rufus Firefly

          You have completely bought in to Trump’s fantasy defense. The *president is NOT above the law. He can obstruct justice, and he can be impeached therefor. Articles of impeachment for both Nixon and Clinton included Obstruction of Justice.

          • monorprise

            The president can break the law in defying congressional investigation. But the FBI are executive branch work for the president, they weld his elected power their investigation are his to command and end for whatever reason he likes.

            In this case this investigation was started in violation of the law without a crime.

            Anyone can be impeached for any reason as Congress also being elected isn’t bond to any law but their own practicaly and perhaps even less

          • monorprise

            Article of impreachment are political charges as impreachment is a political process they don’t have to be true. Although in that case the president was refusing compliance with a congressional investigation over which he did not have l gal command.

      • monorprise

        Nether of which are crimes for the president even if they did happen which they didn’t.

        • Rufus Firefly

          So you advocate the theory of president as monarch? The *president is not above the law, much as though Trump might wish.

          • monorprise

            It’s not about being above the law it’s about the simple fact that all members of the executive branch are under the elected president and not unaccountable independent agents able to do their own thing.

            If they were they would be able to corruptly terrorize the people with endless investigation of their enemies both political and personal with zero accountability. While letting their friends commit any crime they want against any enemy.

            The people would be helpless against such a corrupt agency. That’s why they are forbidden to investigate anyone or anything without a spesfic crime in mind and help subject to election of presidents.

            This doesn’t prevent then from doing this in practice as we are seeing now but it doesn’t let we the people throw out their masters when they lose control.

            As for holding that president accouable that is done by both the court via nullfying his actions, and the Congress by defunding, investgating, and if nessary imoeaching.

          • monorprise

            In short president are accountable to the other 2 branches thou nullfication and defunding, and impeachment.

            And independent FBI would not be so accountable and instead simply a tool for corruption as the agents in charge presue their own agenda as a few of them did under Obama, almost throwing the election.

  • Jenny O

    Oh? Sure seems you do.

  • Marshal Tucker

    Ridiculous. The Trump Administration should have done what the Osama Administration did when they first came in and started with a clean slate – fire anyone that was appointed by the previous administration. Now they are just causing in-fighting.

    • Rufus Firefly

      Duh. Rosenstein was appointed by Trump.

    Who the hell picked rosenstein as asst AG??? Hillary?????

    As an American Citizen i demand an end to this witch hunt and waste of the tax payers money. Fire all of them including Rosenstein.

    • Bill

      Is that you Jay? Say hi to Mr. Elefante. 🎵♩🎶

  • Jimbo

    Ah yes, a response from one of the swamp rats.

  • Jay77

    Rosenstein is part of the problem. There is no impartial investigation in this Russian Collusion investigation and it shows that no matter what the DNC and Clinton campaign did and how illegal it was against Trump they will not go after her and the players that were involved because the FBI is part of it. FBi is corrupt at the top.

  • I Call ‘Bravo Sierra’

    Has OANN retracted the ‘Moore Wins’ story yet?

    • Bud

      What “Moore Wins” story?

  • wannano

    Come on people, dont feed the troll !

  • flashydave

    I believe the best way to start scurrying the roaches is to start indicting them. The rats will start jumping ship to save themselves once some of them head to jail. We need to reclaim our uranium by jailing the Clinton’s for selling something they had no control over.

  • IceColdLogic

    Several people lied in the Clinton investigation…. no charges. Flynn lies and we have charges. Right off the bat it seems like their standard for the DNC and the GOP are very different. That makes it hard to swallow Rosenstein’s reassurances to the contrary.

  • Roy Beane

    Whatta giant steaming pile of Manauga. None of these Dimmocrapic Trump Haters and Hillary supporters inside the Mueller camp are impartial in the least, including the FBI and the DOJ (which is loaded to the rafters with Obama holdovers) and this Deputy AG is certainly no better.

    They can deny it and keep on LYING all they want, but their one and ONLY mission is find SOMETHING…..ANYTHING….they can use to file impeachment charges asap against the President. Justice and the pursuit of actual TRUTH is not even on their list of priorities.

  • julie

    The guy even looks like a rat!

  • Harold Swift

    What a piece of Pygmy mole trash this idiot is…He’s so crooked you couldn’t screw him into a piece of soft putty.

  • Total BS. Our pathetic congress is more responsible for this sham and to allow Rosenstein to, with a straight face, say the FBI at the highest levels is not corrupt is beyond laughable. The field agents are the real heroes. They should get their leaders out. they need to rise up against the hacks running the FBI.

    • kaiju

      I think if you look up weasel in the dictionary, you’ll find Rosenstein’s picture.

      • Varangian Guard

        It is easily a much smaller number to count.

  • Erica Merovich

    Seriously…how can we stop this obvious collusion to spy on Trump and his transition team? Jordan and Gowdy lay it all out there and still it’s “nope”. Can Trump really just stop it himself?

  • nfcapitalist

    Trey Gowdy was impressive as always… looked like Rosenstein was dodging bullets. Trey Gowdy could fix the DOJ and FBI… he is utterly honest and that’s why he’s a Republican… one of the last.

    So what exactly would it take to end an investigation where the lead Prosecutor and his entire team are bias against Trump,, collecting a hefty paycheck??? seems to me, they will keep this going on forever making stuff up if they can!!! INSANE ABUSE OF TAX PAYER MONEY, and meanwhile covering up for their own ties to Uranium ONE sale to Russia and additional Hillary crimes

    • Fuzzy Thinker

      Tell the investigators that from now on they will be doing Pro Bono work. No more billable hours.

    there has to be something “We The People” can do to shut this special (lol) committee down!!!!!!

      Don’t worry about it… they are exposing themselves as fools, we should sit back and watch the show, because that’s all they’ve got… the show.

  • Jimbo

    Rod Rosenstein is another lying far left democrat posing as an honest and trustworthy man. President Trump needs to focus on really draining the swam including the DOJ, FBI, and ferret out all those deep state communists.

  • Kyle Smith

    What a bunch of BS. Does he reeally think we are going to fall for “we will look into it”. He is part of the cover up for goodness sakes. Is there no more common sense in DC?

    The oversight committee is worthless. They are not permitted to really “oversee.” According to everyone they interview, no one gets answers until it is all over. Well, then that ‘s not oversight. The American people have no right to know anything and it gets worse every day. We exist to pay the bills. That’s all.

        Where is it that they are “doing enough”?

        • Freedom

          Doing enough meaning just enough to keep the public from overthrowing the whole lot of them. Thinking twice about it now, yeah you’re right. They don’t really do enough now. So what’s the plan?

          • red110306

            The only plan to have any success will be to vote the scum out as they come up for re-election. One thing I can say for sure is that the Conservative base needs to wake up and take a good hard look at what the Dems have been doing for decades. Whenever we have a candidate they know will win a fair election, they trot out the sexual abuse victims to muddy the waters. Just like when Harry Reid blatantly lied about Romney’s tax returns. When he was called out on it (after the election) his reply was: “It worked, didn’t it”? Dems are the lowest form of life walking this planet. Conservative need to completely ignore all of the unproven allegations against our candidates. I have to say, that even with the allegations, Moore almost pulled it off. So we are definitely making progress with more people turning a deaf ear to the lying dems.

          • Arctic Frost

            Red – You aren’t kidding and they laid the ground work in that hearing with that liberal Congressman coming out a basically DECLARING touching a woman is now a Federal crime!!

            Conservative women, WE NEED YOU TO RUN FOR OFFICE! Stop them by playing their own game against them. There isn’t a man alive that can keep you from winning. If you run against another woman, no worries as this country’s majority leans right.

          • red110306

            Well said. We do need more females to enter the fray. If you want equality, you need to be able to take the fight to them. But I am not about it being a man or a woman seeking office. I am all about the ideals that have made this country the best place to be in the world. I am saddened to see that all slipping away. Today’s youth has been indoctrinated from the time they can read and write into the Alinsky’s rules for socialism! Things need to change and they need to change NOW!

  • MisterSandman

    Mueller’s investigation has become hopelessly compromised.
    Even if there was a reason found to press charges, the bias and corruption that has been exposed ensures that those charges will be impossible to file.

    • Rufus Firefly

      No bias. Texter called Trump an idiot. Truth is an affirmative defense.

      • MisterSandman

        I highly doubt you even know what the definition of ‘affirmative’ is…but, just in case, you may want to look up ‘subjective’.
        While you’re at it, look up what investigatory standards are.
        Finally, when you’re done, take out the trash…then you can go play with the neighborhood kids.

    • kaiju

      Exactly why I think Trump enjoys this circus of fools. Trump must have one hell of a team of business professionals working his affairs. To run a business the size of his and keep it all clean. He’s had scores of antagonistic people plowing though his affairs and unable to find any missteps after almost two years of investigation. Wow!

  • MisterSandman

        • MisterSandman

          Congress…are you really this stupid or do you think that Mueller should be allowed to do whatever he wants?
          Let’s see…I got your IP address…what’s this? Kiddie porn? Shame, shame, JR.

          See how that works? Even Mueller needs to have a leash…whether you like it or not. That’s how America works, I don’t know about where you’re from.

          • TexasDeplorable1134

            Yes, their stonewalling any requests from Intelligence Oversight/Judiciary committees was probably not one of their better responses. And trying to remove Nunes (BIG mistake). Even Gowdy is showing some doubts in their objectivity.

            I was also under the impression that Mueller was specifically tasked in the Russian Collusion, how has it now being allowed to continue under Obstruction of Justice. If there was obstruction, then that is a separate investigation not just a continuation of the previous investigation. Especially now as this one shows that it has been pretty much tainted.

          • JR

            An investigation within the Department of Justice that answers to Rosenstein. Republican committee members can complain about access all they want, but Rosenstein is the gate keeper. GOP and it’s media cronies will do whatever it can to discredit the investigation. What are you complaining about anyway? Mueller is one of your guys. Only an insecure Trump fanboy would want to close down an investigation run by qualified individuals to determine if our enemies are swaying our elections.
