What happened the other day? What could have possessed Deputy AG Rosenstein to sic a special prosecutor on President Trump? This was an act of betrayal. Why is no one characterizing it as such? Like thunder it struck us all. What just happened?
Would anyone working for Eric Holder or Obama have done something like this?
Comey was clearly a nut job of the first rank. He had to be dealt with and Trump had every right to fire him.
If Rosenstein used the information that Comey supplied about his notes and the pretense of obstruction as the reason that he just had to go right out and appoint a special prosecutor then this is highly irregular for two reasons: 1) It’s not obstruction of justice for Trump to fire Comey and 2) it’s common sense to know not to trust the revenge motivated prattlings of a man who has just been fired and has illegally leaked government documents.
If Rosenstein had any judgment at all he should have waited for a while and confirmed things before doing something so drastic as appointing a special prosecutor. He’s been on TV lately and I’m sure he’s enjoying the popularity he’s gained from the left and perhaps he wants to negotiate a book deal with them.
@ctlaw tells us: “Rosenstein wrote Mueller’s charge so as to be a fishing license for perjury trap prosecution against Republicans while maximally protecting Democrats.”
Here’s the question: why was Rosenstein in such a hurry to appoint a special prosecutor? I smell a rat.Published in
