Emails: Obama Officials Told Rod Rosenstein ‘We’re Proud of You’ After Mueller Special Counsel Appointment

Former Obama administration officials expressed support for former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the days surrounding the May 2017 appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate the debunked Russia collusion claims, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch (JW) said Tuesday, citing internal government emails.

“These astonishing emails show that Rod Rosenstein had many Obama/Clinton and media friends supporting him around the time he infamously appointed Robert Mueller,” JW President Tom Fitton declared.

Following the recusal of then-AG Jeff Sessions, Rosenstein appointed Mueller on May 17, 2017, to investigate U.S. presidential election interference by Russia, particularly alleged collusion between the Kremlin to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

On Tuesday, JW announced:

Judicial Watch announced today it received 382 pages of documents showing former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s communications with former Obama officials, including Eric Holder and information sharing with the media in the days immediately surrounding the inception of the Mueller investigation.

In the days surrounding the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, Rosenstein received … multiple emails of support from former senior Obama administration officials [and others].

“Rod, We’re proud of you,” U.S. Attorney John Huber, an Obama appointee, wrote to Rosenstein in an email the day before Mueller’s appointment.

An email sent to Rosenstein by former Obama Special Counsel Jonathan Su a few days before DOJ announced Mueller’s appointment — on May 12, 2017 — said, “Hi Rod: I know there’s a lot going on right now, but I wanted to send you a note of support. If there’ s anything I can do to be of help, please let me know. Hope you hang in there.”

Rod Rosenstein needs to be investigated and indicted for possible obstruction of justice, witness tampering, lying to Congress, espionage,  sedition, making false statements to a federal FISA Court, conspiracy to commit treason... and possibly other crimes all related to his duties as Deputy and Acting Attorney General of the United States... Ed Meese had done nothing on the scale of Rosenstein...

Rosenstein,  Rosenstein , Rosenstein , if ya say so....:)

I say so, say so, say so...

No political bias in the DOJ... unless your blind, deaf and dumb.

First, the DOJ is not a Constitutional Department... not mentioned in the US Constitution.  Next, the Attorney General is not a Constitutional Office... he is not mentioned in the Constitution.  Finally, the President of the United States is the only Constitutional Officer charged by the Constitution for the enforcement of our laws...

The President is the Chief Constitutional Law Enforcement Officer and has every right to start investigations or to stop them.  He has every right to challenge the acts of his AG and any of the DOJ Attorneys including US Attorneys. In fact, given the hostile attitude of most members of the Bar... attorney's... acting as if they have an exclusive right to administer the law, without any real oversight...other than their own peers and BAR... The President should take a very active role in administering justice by reviewing the law professions' ethical conduct whenever he likes... The President should never argue or discuss legal matters with them...However, when he disagrees with any of them... FIRE THEM... no explanation necessary ... just fire them...  let them figure it out why.

It is amazing how the AG and US Attorney's make it appear that the President is somehow not entitled to his legal opinion, or to intervene in any law enforcement issues, at any time he chooses. Fire every attorney in the DOJ that holds such an opinion.  FIre all the non-article 3 Judges and appoint men and women who are willing to Administer the Law not make law.  The entire legal system is bankrupt and totally out of control.  The DOJ and Judicial system are filled with Pettyfoggers, whose only interest is ruling by judicial fiat... under the color of law.

Ya da Ya da Ya da, go get em Tiger....:)





Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
