Rosenstein Speaks About Freedom Caucus Impeachment

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein spoke about the news of members of the House Freedom Caucus drafted impeachment articles against him. He simply stated the DOJ “is not going to be extorted.”

Rosenstein said, “They can’t even resist leaking their own drafts.”

He added, “I just don’t have anything to say about documents like that, that nobody has the courage to put their name on, and that they leak in that way. But I can tell you, there have been people who have been making threats privately and publicly against me, for quite some time, and I think they should understand by now, the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted.”

    Impeach the bastard. He does not give congress the requested unredacted documents when they have they constitution to oversee them,. Give up all documents fully unredacted or get out of the office as you are not dong your job.

  • Dodie1990

    THis man needs to go. trump should have fired all of them on day one. Make Giuliani, or Trey Gowdy Attorney General instead of that timid, useless Sessions.

    • Dealerdeb1

      I say Trey Gowdy and leave Rudy to defend Trump

      • ipsd48

        Without the fake Mueller investigation, based on the fake Steele dossier, Mr Trump doesn’t NEED a defense

  • Robert Kahlcke

    Don’t threaten, do what you have to do smart ass. Remember what comes around goes around, you may be the target of the next investigation. How does it feel?

  • Ron

    The self-righteous smugness of this guy is breathtaking. Why aren’t ALL of the participants in this pre-planned, orchestrated witch hunt already gone and/or indicted?

    • Armed Liberal

      Because they speak the truth – and do not support a dictator wanna be who is in office now. You guys who support trump would be happy if he took the powers welded by Putin. That’s the real crime in this country… a bunch of non-thinking white males who think their shit doesn’t stink and who want an authoritarian dough boy running our great country.

      • Kent Powers

        There is not enough space here to begin to expose the proven lies, crony status, under the table actions, bribes, job placements, of the democrat cartel, this country has thank God turned around under this president, drink your Kool-aid * shut up.

      • How is Trump a “Dictator”, you IDIOT! What has he done to make you think that? Are you an Obama and Hillary ass kisser?

        • Armed Liberal

          LOL! Hardly – his wanting authority over everything for a start. His love of dictators is obvious. his jokes about being ruler for life – his wanting the DOJ to be his instrument of power to do his bidding… his circumventing normal process in trying to get his way… his obvious fear of the press showing him to be the emperor without clothes – calling the press in the country fake news – so many things he wants to do. Putting people into positions of power who have no business being there. Putting his own kids in positions of power – this is what dictators do.

          • Crash

            yep you described Obama to the T that’s exactly all he did was put people in positions and had no business being there. I’m a Vietnam vet and there’s no way I support anything at these murdering lying thieving treasonous communist / Nazis are proposing to do to this country. Anyone that can support this type of government that will support illegals Muslims and other enemies of America is not an American just nothing but a traitor or a freeloader

He resigned one day after being exposed and behind people’s backgrounds re hired him inside the WH to work as his Green Czar . Yup that’s transparency for you. Having all these communists inside and working for the WH. Everything known of top secret needs to be completely changed so all these commies don’t have any of our secrets to

      • Dealerdeb1

        IF you believe they are telling the truth then this country has no hope. I am an Independent. Trump was never my first choice however to watch this disaster is beyond anything I have ever witnessed. trump has NEVER ESPOUSED anything close to being a dictator. Ever notice how he ALWAYS says “WE” YOU are sick in the head.All he has done is accomplish. jobs,foreign poilice,business returning. So many things that never get reported. IN FACT HARVARD did a study that over 90% of reports on DT are either untrue or negative

      • Crash

        I suppose the arm partner name is that your armed with nothing but ignorance. So since being a Hillary and Obama supporter which actually you probably are that means that you do support Nazism and communism either one because they both are huge representations of such and if there was a true dictator it was Obama

        • Armed Liberal

          Hardly – Ex military cop. And a progressive. At least we on the left recognize the truth when we see it. You recognize nothing… except thugs that reflect your own ignorance about how trump would love nothing more than to be like Putin or other dictators around the world. If you want to know who a man is – look at who he admires… look at who trump admires. Putin, Dutarte, Xi among others.

            What ;’truth’ do you recognize? That Obama and Holder made a blatant attempt to create a ‘gun horror’ story with the Fast & Furious debacle for the express purpose of disarming Americans?
            That they suppressed the facts of the Benghazi attack and got the media to post outright lies about it’s cause?
            That Obama’s RGGI was just a underhanded way of funding liberal causes……..and attacking conservative businesses?
            That for 8 yrs Obama IGNORED the invasions on our southern borders and attacked anyone demanding accountability?
            That the Obama led govt illegally used their power to attack the Trump campaign, including illegal wiretapping , surveillance and creating of fake documents to get a FISA court approval?

      • John E Moore

        You are as ignorant as them if you think they speak the truth. You liberals wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped you in the nuts! The democrats have been caught rigging an election along with numerous additional illegal acts, including sedition. When allegations are made and then proven totally false, you butthurt liberals create another lie to cover up and distract by creating another false allegation after another false allegation. Always trying to deflect attention from the real criminals like Hitlery, Mueller, Rosenstein, Comey Comedy and the rest of the moralless socialist dems party. You might put down the koolaid and use what little brain the good Lord have you and open your eyes. For any male in the US to have preferred Hitlery or Sanders over Trump, you should be shot because you evidently dont don’t have enough brains to wipe your butt, much less vote on a President. I bet you think your name, Armed Liberal, intimidates some people. Little do you know that people laugh at that daily because everyone knows that liberals are all about taking our rights away that are constitutionally guaranteed and we find that for someone liberal to speak about being armed is about as serious as a stud Bill with no balls. Now go back to your safe place and look for the balls that you lost when you became a liberal.

      • George Freire

        Lol,lol! Never heard a more outrageously comical statement as Trump being a wannabe dictator. Do you even know what a dictator really is? And do you realize that the first thing a,wanna be dictator would do is attempt to rid us of the second amendment, not support it! Lol,lol.

    About time this guy sticks up for the DOJ and his own job. The fact the nut cases in the house who are wimps and cowards is that they think they can intimidate him by threats. A former milk man (Nunes – who doesn’t even know how to read) is the noisy little Puss who thinks he’s a big cheese. He has no clue as other in the right wing cabal doing his orange highnesses bidding. Go Rob! This impeachment is just a bunch of chest beating by a bunch of little monkey brained imbeciles!

Obviously you are not a lawyer, and cannot even read the laws as most competent NON LAWYERS CAN READ THEM. You throw around wild ass comments like a kid in Junior High School without any analysis of any facts. The U.S. Congress has the right under the constitution to get the evidence RosenstAin is withholding to try to cover his own ass. If you think being an “armed liberal” intimidates the millions of veterans who have served and stand ready to do so again, you are sadly mistaken ‘Puss’.Pick an Alley on a moonless night you Puss.

  • Flotmorton P. Gildersleeve

    Rosenstain is committing a federal felony in withholding evidence of his own earlier crimes of felony perjury in his sworn affidavit(s) to the FISA Court to secure a phony, invalid warrant to pursue the President of the United States. Judge Ellis nailed it when he told off the prosecutors in the case against Manafort.
    RosenstAin is guilty of numerous crimes including felony perjury in violation of 18 U.S.C. Sections 1001a and 671. READ THEM CAREFULLY.
    In withholding the legally and logically RELEVANT evidence of his own perjury fropm Congress he has committed another FELONY in violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 1505, obstructing a congressional process.
    RosenstAin is an arrogant, corrupt piece of crap, and should be immediately fired and PROSECUTED for the numerous crimes he has committed.
    RosenstAin committed perjury in securing a bogus, phony FISA Warrant.
    RosenstAin ignored the many crimes by Hillary’s receiving bribes from Russia & paying Russia for the slop in the PHONY “DOSSIER’ ” knowing that it was financed by Hillary.
    RosenstAin needs to be fired Prosecuted, (along with the corrupt Comey & Mueller) imprisoned and DISBARRED.

    Wrong Name “Department of Justice” It should really be named the “Department if Injustice”. for there has been not Justice for a long time since the Left Liberals have taken control.

    • fisherman

      Jeff Sessions isn’t going to fire anybody. He’s part of the deep state as well as they are. They are all stalling until they either find someone who will make up a story about Trump to save their own ass or they can perfect a false crime to have him impeached. Right now, they’re holding on until the elections in Nov. with the belief that the Demoncrats will win the house and have the votes to impeach. We have to make sure that doesn’t happen and maybe unload some RINO’s in exchange for real conservatives. Then we will have them against the wall and force them out.

  • Mo

    This little Moron of a Man should NOT be in the position that he is in, by his actions he shows that he is NOT QUALIFIED for the job. The DOJ once Sessions was comfirmed, he should have cleaned house of all of these Obutthead/Killary supporters and started fresh. This little pipsqeak is withholding documents from Congress and is in serious violation of his oath of office. These Documents I say are being withheld or redacted more than likely would expose the crimes committed by the Obama Administration, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strock, Lisa Paige, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Chesea Clinton, Rod Rosenstein, Mueller Himself and a list of others. He knows that if he turns over these Documents that the Demoncraps will be exposed as the Criminals that they are and that he and all of the others .will wind up in jail if not EXECUTED FOR TREASON. The Freedom Caucus needs to just follow thru and remove this Criminal and have him charged. He’s got big problems coming with the False FISA applications he signed off on anyway.

  • Jeffrey Revers

    No, but you can be POLITICALLY MOTIVATED you piece of CRAP. You and Mueller will share a jail cell in the future.

  • Bob Edelstein

    Call Rosenstein, Sessions and Wray to the oval office together with Fox, AP, Reuters, Nunez, Goddard, Gowdy and the four Majority leaders. The President asks for the documents to be delivered post haste and says he will declassify anything they want redacted. If they refuse; Fire them for insubordination on the spot in front of the cameres. End of problem!

  • madmemere

    Rosey posey – -the DOJ is NOT being extorted; WE THE PEOPLE WANT you fired, charged and indicted for collusion, fraud, sedition, treason and ANYTHING ELSE THAT FITS! Resign and face the consequences of your own criminality.

    Impeach this corrupt POS.

    • ipsd48

      I still don’t see the logic in impeaching an APPOINTED bureaucrat like Rosenstein. He works FOR the president. If he can’t do the job, fire him. If he breaks the law WHILE doing the job, indict him.
      The impeachment process would just be a waste of time on people like him. And the constitution does NOT give bureaucrats access to the impeachment process.

      • Sandy devine

        NO NO NO, transfer him because the Prez feels he’s not doing his job right. Transfer to the mail room of Congress! He will quit on his own, won’t be able to stand seeing the people of the senate and legislators

  • fisherman

    The DOJ will not be extorted because they are the kings of extortion and corrupt activity.

  • Joel Frank

    Rosenstein is the one who wrote the memo recommending that Comey be fired, in which he went into great detail of Comey’s failures as FBI Director. After President Trump did indeed fire Comey, Rosenstein then recommended that Mueller be appointed as Special Counsel to investigate not only the “Russian collusion” by Trump, but also Trump’s possible obstruction of justice in the firing of Comey. If this wasn’t so serious it would be comical. How this geek, Rosenstein got his position at DOJ is beyond me. He and that good for nothing Leprechaun should be fired for dereliction of duty. The idiot Rosenstein is apparently unaware that the Constitution gives Congress oversight powers over the executive branch (DOJ).

  • klsparrow

    Someone needs to remind Rosentein he needs to read the constitution. Congress has oversight of the FBI DOJ. Rosentein seems to think he is above that oversight. Congress has the constitutional authority ti see “all” doc with no redaction. Rosentein also seems to have forgotten that congress is the branch that created the FBI, DOJ, AG and if they wanted they could do away with all three are change the rules of what you can and cannot do. Congress should either impeach Roseitein are trump should fire him for not doing his job to turn over Docs. Bottom line is Rosentein is one crooked arrogant ass

  • william bailey

    FIRE HIM ! lets move ON ! more important matters happening ! this mueller and rosenstein thing is more like a TV Series !

  • W. Coyote

    Rod Rosenstein is sounding more and more like a hero. Keep up the good work.

  • Maggietish

    Rosenstein needs to go. He was the one who drafted the recommendation and presented it to President Trump to fire Jim Comey. Why is he refusing to submit to the Congress documents that were drafted outlining Mueller s responsibility/restrictions as Special Prosecutor for the Russian collusion investigation. He’s the one that drew it up so what is he so afraid of and why is he refusing disclose it. Obviously he doesn’t have a clue what our Constitution says, or he is blatantly just breaking the law, that Congress has every right to oversee the operation of the DOJ and every right to demand documents and information from him and he is duty-bound to present it to them. He has refused present documents that the Congress has asked for for over a year so what is he hiding? He absolutely should be impeached right now without hesitation. His arrogance is offensive. The people responsible for breaking the law are those working in government particular in the DOJ and FBI. Why hasn’t Jeff Sessions stepped in way before now. He is ineffectual as Attorney General to the detriment of this country and the American people. Trey Gowdy would be the perfect replacement for Sessions. So glad to hear that Rudy Giuliani is on President Trump‘s legal team.

  • American Patriot!

    Good for Rosenstein! About time someone in the FBI said enough to those cowardly, trumped up suck-up douche bags in congress and their pointless posturing! Looking forward to the day trump is in shackles!

  • Sandy devine

    I say don’t fire him just move him to a different position! Like being in charge of the mail room of congress… let him resign on his own. He isbopdn yo be moved around just like any one else. He works for the people not the other way around. And I say put Trey in the AG position and drop Session to be transfered somewhere else. Also get someone good for the position if Rosenstein. Like Darrel Issa?
