Rod Rosenstein Makes A Stand Against Donald Trump's Interlopers In Congress

quote [ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein making clear in a new speech that he will not entertain requests for information about the Trump Russian investigation from members of Congress whose motivation is to help Donald Trump undermine the investigation. ]

This guy has looked like a hero at times, and this time makes an ethical stand for the law and the Justice Department.

President Donald Trump and his lawyers have made a strategic calculation that their fight against special counsel Robert Mueller is more political than it is legal.

They’re banking that the lead Russia investigator will follow long-standing Justice Department practice that a sitting president can’t be indicted, and that the only real threat to Trump’s survival is impeachment.

Trump's Russia strategy: Bash Mueller to beat impeachment

Giuliani and the White House fear Congress more than criminal charges.

And because Mueller doesn't leak we have no idea what he is going to do...or when he is going to do it.

Your fixation with Trump may be justifiable, or pure neurosis. But it's simply not ok to keep posting clips from Rachel Maddow. Rachel Maddow is Sean Hannity in drag, an overpaid and supercilious gasbag who, like Hannity, represents the anti-journalism.A pox on both their houses. They're cancers on what was once a quasi-honourable profession.
