& who could argue he needs to recuse himself from investigations he’s been overseeing for TWO YEARS? 🤔
"Rod Rosenstein: The Man With The Most Thankless Job In America"
About 90% of what right wing media like Sean Hannity & others tell you about Rosenstein is BS.
Sessions recused himself. As far as the 2016 election-related investigations went, Rosenstein became the de facto Attorney General.
And he's been functioning in that role ever since.
On top of THAT he was also tapped to oversee the creation of a new FBI leak hunting unit w. > 24 leak probes ongoing.
The leaks *included* the *very* classified Carter Page FISA warrant, all 82 unredacted pages of it.
He decided to let Congress scream at him for a year while he protected very serious, very professionally run investigations being done.
Investigate the Clinton Foundation with no leaks?
Reopen the Email investigation with no leaks?
That is some deep sh*t there.
People peddling theories he still has his job because he's BLACKMAILING Trump into not firing him are hysterically funny to me.
Sooner or later you start to realize all this doom crying never goes anywhere.
1) Huber has been investigating the Clinton Fdn for more than a year.
2) those whistleblower docs the FBI was supposedly *just now discovering & trying to seize* have been in the hands of Huber's team for over a year.
4) Cohen's latest plea focused a spotlight on YET ANOTHER FBI INFORMANT sent to lure Trump people: Felix Sater.
Nobody knew what was really going on and THAT'S THE POINT.
To hide what was really happening, tons of fake leaks and drama went on. And it worked.
Hey, nobody knew Huber was digging into the Clinton Fdn. right? We're only discovering this now because it's TIME.
TV talking heads spinning the worst possible interpretations based on incomplete information got people so fearful and hysterical they couldn't step back and see the BIG PICTURE.
Meanwhile, what happened in the last yr & 1/2 since Comey got fired?
THE ENTIRE SPYGATE ROSTER WAS EXPOSED & TOSSED OUT OF THE DOJ/FBI. Most of what they did became PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE.
How'd THAT happen? 🤔
Because he DID HIS JOB & protected ongoing investigations, they spun this as his trying to SUPPRESS the SpyGate plot.
The source for that story?
Are you sitting down?
Yet suddenly, after he got his ass FIRED & we learn there's a grand jury in DC hearing a case against him, McCabe's LEAKING about Rosenstein to the media.
Because Rosenstein is the guy overseeing the investigation that's very likely going to send McCabe's ass to prison.
What have I told you for a year? The *real* investigations into SpyGate/U1 *aren't* being done by the grandstanding drunks of Congress.
That's Horowitz & Huber.
What *EVIDENCE* is there that Rosenstein has tried to PREVENT Horowitz & Huber from doing their jobs in these investigations?
'Huber's not doing anything. Huber's not interviewing anybody. I'd have heard something. My deep inside sources have heard nada."
No shit your usual sources didn't hear anything. And once that private firm had the goods, they *quietly* turned the documents over to the right people inside the DOJ.
You don't know because YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW.
Wictor used to tell people this all the time.
"BUT I WANNA KNOW *RIGHT NOW*!!!"
And he'd say "Great! Let's BLOW THE ENTIRE OPERATION because you're having a tantrum & let the bad guys get away."
They kept the goddamn lid on it for GOOD REASONS.
You don't like that?
I don't care.
Screaming media talking heads wanting them to blow their investigations because they want all the cards on the table TODAY, you think they pay attention to those people?
They don't. Neither do I.
Most of what you THINK you know about what he's done/been doing is disnformation or narratives spun to look as bad as possible.
