While media attention has been focused on the astounding events unfolding quickly in Singapore, a longtime standoff between Congress and the DOJ is coming to a head.  And like an erupting skin lesion, the result is not going to be pretty.

 

We’ve learned that at a tense meeting held in January of this year, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reacted to the possibility of being hit with contempt charges by threatening to subpoena the emails, phone records and other documents of Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee and their staff.  In emails reviewed by Catherine Herridge at FOX News, the scene was characterized by aides as a “personal attack.”

 

One committee staffer summed it up:  “Let me just add that watching the Deputy Attorney General launch a sustained personal attack against a congressional staffer in retaliation for vigorous oversight was astonishing and disheartening….Also having the nation’s #1 (for these matters) law enforcement officer threaten to ‘subpoena your calls and emails’ was downright chilling.”  The DOJ will try to defend this threat as a call for “discovery” in the event Rosenstein is held in contempt of Congress  –- a richly deserved charge at this point –- but the staffer read it as “a not-so-veiled threat to unleash the full prosecutorial power of the state against us.”  FOX News’ Gregg Jarrett has called it “likely an abuse of power and obstruction.”

 



The staffer’s account is disputed by representatives of the FBI and DOJ.  Alleged Attorney General Jeff Sessions has just defended Rosenstein publicly against charges of threatening, saying, “We do believe that we have tried to be cooperative with them and made progress as the months have gone by, and, in fact, have had some good relationships with top members of Congress.”

 

 I guess by “good relationships” he’s referring to the mysterious passivity of “pod people” Trey Gowdy and Paul Ryan.  Otherwise, only another pod person would call the relationship between the DOJ/FBI and Congress “good,” and in the strangely subdued video clip of Sessions, he does appear to have been taken over.  So what is it going to take for Congress to get key documents relating to the FBI’s Russia investigation?  After all the fighting for months and months over their release, one has to ask:  what in the blue blazes are they trying to hide?

 

Things have only gotten more contentious in recent weeks.  Tom Dupree, former principal deputy assistant attorney general under George W. Bush, views the attempts at intimidation as symptomatic of not just a deteriorating relationship, but much worse:  “a massive breakdown in the system.”  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes had set Tuesday as the deadline for the receipt of documents relating to the use of a “confidential human source” (SPY) to SPY on some associates of the Trump campaign, and now Tuesday has come and gone.  Rosenstein and others have offered to have yet another talk-fest on Thursday –- apparently without the documents in question.  If this is just one more verbal briefing without the actual evidence, it is unacceptable.  (Incidentally, Thursday is the date set for the release of the Inspector General’s report.)

 

House Oversight Committee members Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan appeared on Tuesday’s Laura Ingraham show and responded to Sessions’ lame defense of Rosenstein, outlining the many instances of documents being withheld or redacted for no acceptable reason.  Jordan slammed Rosenstein for threatening to go after their communications when they’re just doing their constitutional duty.  Meadows pointed out that since they are a separate branch of government, the DOJ doesn’t have the right to come after them in that way unless they’re under “some kind of criminal investigation.”

 

He said Sessions doesn’t know what he’s talking about.  “I’m here to tell you,” he added, “we’re fed up with it.”

 

He announced that they were planning to file a resolution on Wednesday to compel the DOJ to turn over the documents.  Since a subpoena hasn’t worked, they want the whole House of Representatives to pass their resolution, theorizing that this will add more force.  Really?

 

Obviously, they don’t want to file contempt or impeachment charges unless all other efforts have been exhausted.  But surely they know the DOJ is not going to comply.  It has drawn the line.  We can see now that there really is a “deep state,” and this is is the hill it apparently chooses to die on, most likely protecting...someone...who did...something...unspeakably bad.

    Rosenstein, Mueller, Sessions, and Ryan must go! I think that Trey Gowdy must go too, after he made his statement that the FBI acted properly in its use of an informant in the Trump campaign to root out possible Russian meddling in the 2016 race . If so, why didn't the FBI do the same for Hillary??? The president isn't going to solve nearly as many problems in our country with these obstructionists getting in the way when he's trying to get his work done!

    Mike -- calling Trey Gowdy and Paul Ryan "pod people" is unconscionable. I used to think your columns were pretty "objective". But deliberately demeaning and disrespecting solid men like these, just because they disagree with your own assessment of things, puts you at a much lower place of estimation in my eyes now. I am very disappointed in you.

    Jason Chaffets said this morning on GOX that nobody has any right to subpoena congressional e-mails, notes, and phone calls. He also said Rosenstein is known for his explosive temper and his lack of self-control. He has threatened members of Congress, and must be removed from office! Of course, that would take an AG with a spine, leaving Sessions unqualified. I fail to understand why Pres. Trump puts up with him, why he hasn't fired him yet and replaced him with an honest man who will stand up to the self-entitled criminals in the Justice Dept.!

    Hmmm..... I wonder if this had anything to do with Sessions, Gowdy and Ryan turning into pod people and two of them deciding not to continue in politics, while the third doesn't do his job. Maybe they didn't want the hassle of having something ferreted out about them and made public. J. Edgar Hoover used the same tactics to control the office that he held. We need some politicians in there who can stand up to fine scrutiny and are bold enough to take on and expose the corruption. That may be hard to find in this day and age.

    It is evident that the DOJ and Sessions are in cahoots in this mess. Session needs to go along with Rosenstein and the quicker the better! The American people are fed up with the DOJ thinking they are above Congress which has way too much power. Clean house, Mr. President, use your authority to demand the documents and fire both Session and Rosenstein! lla

    Why in the world doesn't President Trump demand the DOJ turn over all reports Mr. Neunes has requested? I'm a Trump backer all the way, but don't understand why he doesn't get rid of Sessions & Rosenstein. The longer they are in there the more damage they are doing. There is absolutely no difference in the Obama DoJ & the Trump DoJ!! I would think President Trump would want nothing more then to get a new AG in there. The fall out he is so worried about can't hold a candle to the damage Sessions & Rosenstein are doing.

    I enjoy reading your summaries and the comments made by Americans who really CARE for our country. It is time for each of us in all the US states to give pink slips to those in government (Congress) who represent us. The truth of the matter is corruption is a cancer and needs to be cut out. This corruption which has been growing over the years calls for action by us; it is evil. What they are hiding is behavior that is treasonous. No one likes hearing that word. The truth always comes out. Let us pray for the courage to act swiftly and justly.

    I understand that Trump feels he owes loyalty to Sessions for being a loyal supporter from the beginning but surely he can see the damage being done by Sessions passivity. He has let Rosenstein run wild and do his best to obstruct anyone who attempts ferret out the truth not only about Clinton but the skullduggery that has gone on both in Justice but also the FBI. These are departments that are supposed to be above reproach, and above politics. I like Sessions but it's time for him to go. I wonder if DeGenova would be a good pick. At one time I thought Gowdy would be perfect, but his recent comments have me leery of him. Would you address this, problem?

Rosenstein's 28 years in DOJ counts for nowt. He's a traitor.....that needs to be in prison, along with Hillary, Obama, Comey, Lynch, etc. The oversight committee needs to bite the bullet and bring charges against Rosenstein!

    Rosenstein is not only in contempt of congress, he if anyone is insubordinate to Jeff sessions AND DT. It is time he suffered the harshest measures possible. Not firing but something more permanent. he is out of control and knows he can do as he pleases and his boss will do nothing like he has on everything else...virtually. Time for the US Marshals to escort RR to Quantico where the Marines will take care of him for a while. When DT gets back I want him to bring the hammer down...HARD on RR. Obstruction? What else do you call it?

    Critical that the American people hear what is really happening in our nation. Government is now a business as opposed to a body of people working for all the people. Trump saw this years ago and left a lifestyle of leisure to wade in and do some good for us. All the president gets is pushback and criticism from those who pretend to care for the average family. Mike, you keep up this pressure for the "real" truth to shine and not the blatant disregard for all that our nation is built on. Oversight has to be done and done with candor and promptness. I didn't serve and fight for this country to now watch greed destroy it from within. Thank you for speaking up and continuing to do so.

    Sessions, Gowdy, Ryan, all are part of the deep state. Sessions may have campaigned for Trump but he was under the same illusion that Hillary, democrats, deep state republicans, fake news and most of the nation was. Trump will never win, but if he does, I'll work to land a position to derail him. Trump won, Sessions appointed AG. Gowdy has played the part of tough guy so long as he gets coverage by the media, but we now see when there is an opportunity to support the deep state and hurt Trump, he is quick to do so. Ryan has never successfully concealed his disdain for Trump and continues to do so.

    At this point, Trump is the infidel and enemy. Democrats claim him as their number one enemy. In the case of republicans, Trump is a threat to exposing their deep state corruption. SO, the big enemy of my threatening enemy is my friend and both sides can use the support of the other. Consequently, we have the deep state vs. Trump period. Pray for Trump to survive and win.

    "Pod People" is a perfect description of so many in Congress that want to keep the status quo. Unfortunately, it is not what "We the People" wanted or President Trump would not have been elected. It is time for President Trump to rid himself of Jeff Sessions - he is clearly on the wrong side of history and the people. He doesn't seem to be too concerned with law and order or equal treatment under the law. To Trump - Let him go - it is, after all, your call. Nobody is going to be surprised by this. It is not easy to surround yourself with those that will support the people's views. I am betting that Sessions has received funds from one or more parties that most conservatives would not be happy about. Sessions has something to hide - find it and rid yourself of him. Some have called President Trump a "disrupter," I would call him a "reformer." There is a difference. A reformer improves circumstances and attempts to right the wrongs, a disrupter just causes problems with no specific objective other than to create chaos and to radicalize specific groups to serve his personal aims. President Trump has made goals - not "agendas." Words like disrupter and agendas have negative connotations and remind me very much of our previous President. The difference being in one "hid" his objectives while the other announced or made clear his objectives.

    Because I love your newsletter, I sometimes like to send your thoughts to President Trump........so I just forwarded your note on the DOJ vs the House Intel, so bad, someone needs to be strong and make some heads roll over this. The Mueller investigation is dead, but he keeps pushing the envelope, he needs to go. Along with Sessions and Rosenstein.........we need a really strong person for DOJ, wish we could clone Mad Dog! Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan and also in a pickle and hope they can get something done. I am sure the people of America are tired of this debacle!

    Dear Mike,
    Thank you for your newsletters. I enjoy reading and learning something with every one. Your perspective on Washington is refreshing and honest, and you are appreciated!
    Do you think at least some of the stonewalling and outright insubordination from the FBI and DOJ have anything to do with trying to run out any statutes of limitations that might apply to Hillary and her crimes?
    And, while the characters involved at the FBI and DOJ obviously have their own agendas which have nothing to do with the truth or following the laws of the United States, I absolutely believe that they are covering up for something very bad, and that something has to be Obama. They seem to be defying everyone and everything that is required of them, by law, to be forthcoming. Protecting Obama seems to be the most logical answer.
    Regards,
    Elyse Anderson

    Good Afternoon Governor:)
    Are you puzzled about Trey Gowdy and Paul Ryan? What I believe, is that they had a secret meeting with Mueller and Rosenstein and know what is in the IG report, unredacted, and some of the findings from Mueller witch hunt. Trey Gowdy fought as hard as Devin Nunes for over a year about the dirty FBI and Justice department, and suddenly he goes to a meeting and sees no documents, but walks out and the FBI and Justice department did everything Americans wanted? Really? It is unbelievable and it stinks. They are also not Trump supporters! And at the same time, squeaky Jeff Sessions comes out of the closet and openly defends the FBI and Justice department and says exactly what Gowdy and Ryan said. Not a coincidence.
    And why do you think that the FBI and Justice Dept. can lie, cheat, cover up and get away with murder but if you lie to them, you're off to prison? Manafort, Cohen and Flynn are being unjustly accused and we can't stop it! Why?
    Well, can't wait to hear your response.
    Thanks

I supported Sessions nomination but it turns out that he is acting like an Obama nominee in the way that he is obstructing justice & Rosenstein should NEVER have been appointed as he was involved in too much dirt & should be investigated himself! Judge Jeanene Pirro would be an excellent choice in my opinion to replace Sessions!

  • Paticio

On another subject, what do you think about Sara H Sanders giving out a printed agenda before each press briefing, going down the list of items the administration wishes to communicate to public, pausing after each agenda item, and asking for questions ONLY on that subject. She could save a few minutes at the end for open questions. MSM will not like it, but the briefing does not belong to them. So proud of her. She learned from the best!

    I think it's time for the President to fire them all in the DOJ & FBI. Have officers standing by as they clear out so they don't take or destroy anything. And yank their security clearances immediately. Yank all the others who no longer work for us as well. Then everyone can get a good look at the documents they've been waiting on. It will all have to be done very fast, though, with NO warning.

    It is abundantly clear that the DOJ, FBI, and CIA (ie., the deep state) are in charge of this country until and unless they are forced to comply in spite of any threats they lob against our government officials. They are seriously threatened as you have pointed out, and it is seriously time for them to be reckoned with in spite of threats to anyone. Obviously government officials have been compromised or they would not be so fearful of these threats against them. Regardless of this they must now stand up against this dire threat to our nation because all will be lost for all of us unless they do so. The action of Rod Rosenstein is an egregious threat to our republic and cannot be tolerated by any freedom loving people!

  • Kelvind Kao

    06/13/2018 12:10 PM

    Dear Mike, all this matter can be solved easily by President Trump. Can you please tell the President to do the followings:
    1. He should issue an Executive Order to declassify the specific documents asked for by Congress/Senate committees.
    2. He should issue an Executive order on Rod Rosenstein, Jeff Sessions and the new FBI director to have the abovementioned documents released to Nunes and others within 7 days of receipt of the order.
    3. If the DOJ and the FBI refuse to comply with these orders, the President can then issue another Excutive order on the three stooges, Rod, Sessions and the FBI director, placing them on three months of official, albeit paid, leave. The President may cite for doing this as 1). he has "no confidence" in the unbiased leadership of these three men; 2). their disobedience to comply with his Executive order, 3). their failure to comply with the order issued by the Congressional committees, (a co-equal independent branch of the government), for the release of the documents, 4). their specific dereliction of duties in these matters.

    The President can then directly order the DOJ and FBI staff to release all the said documents and others to himself at the White House. He is authorised to receive and view these documents since he has the full security clearance and authority to see them. It is the prerogative of the President to then release them to anyone he so wishes and to grant security clearance to them if need be.
    President Trump should also NOW issue an Executive order on the Inspector General to hand over a copy of all his reports that he has thus far written. I am very confident that the President is authorised to receive a copy of the IG's reports since Trump is the Head of the Executive branch of the government and he has all the necessary security clearance.

    The only Americans that are not wishing and demanding for a sweeping out of those crooks in power at our DOJ and top officials are those which are guilty themselves of having taken part in the corruption of our government. We the people, are at the point of revolution if this is not remedied soon. The erosion of our Constitutional rights and the coup attempt is at the point of a physical civil war in this country as expressed not only by myself but those peers of mine that are God fearing and abiding people and Patriots of this nation and we are at our limits of tolerance to turning the other cheek. I dare say and am afraid that we will see what many of us that fought overseas for this Great Country will now only have lived t do the same here at home as none of this can continue to be ignored. The physical attacks coming from the left have already began and whether we condone violence or not , things have risen to the point of being driven to the defense family and home . Those in charge of law and order have been so corrupted as to their own self interest it is becoming everyone for themselves. God Help Us

    Well seems Rodent Rosenstein thinks he is the most powerful person in DC. He is so corrupt this has to be dealt with and Sessions apparently has joined the Deep State giving up his power and control of the oozing DOJ. What SCUM we have coddled and tolerated. All these Lawyers who manipulate the law for their own ends. Would be prudent to prevent lawyers from public office. Mueller stealing millions on his fabricated witch hunt now this RAT pulling this...they act like a pack of drugged up teenagers lying at every turn to protect their lawless gang. Executions for treason are deserved and Pres Trump needs to do that.

    Rosenstein threatening to go after the Intel Committee and staff is very scary. The staff do not have the financial means to defend/ protect themselves. Their only choice is to give in, "confess" and hope to keep their families safe and financially able to keep "living". If you don't have millions (even that cannot be enough) then there is no hope. When dealing with an animal like Rosentein who has unlimited funds, thanks to U.S. taxpayers, there is no justice. Ask Cohen, he is caving to save his family.

    I found your comment calling Trey Gowdy a 'pod' person offensive. Infact mentioning Paul Ryan and Trey Gowdy in the same sentence and saying they are alike is untrue and offensive. No one is going to get it right all the time but Senator Gowdy has shown again his willingness to follow his conscience and 'buck the crowd ' even at great personal cost. You may not agree with all his views, but he is one Senator who displays the character of the forefathers who wrote the documents this nation should be governed by. Men like Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson while not born again Christians had great character and Godly convictions. Well I have preached enough. I will agree that we need to elect more Christians who have Godly convictions and Character (not necessarily inclusive). Give me an honest candidate with conviction and no skeletons in the closet please.

    Hence Jeff Sessions. He takes these people to lunch, of-course he is siding with them. So easy for me to see this why doesn’t President Trump? Because he is extremely intelligent and uses his instincts. He missed this one.

    It is sad that Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and the few other rogue bad actors have destroyed the respect for, and the image, of the FBI. Most people now see it as nothing more than a US echo of the KGB. An agency that attacks citizens on a whim, that uses intimidation and spying to keep it's power, an agency that works outside of our constitution. The FBI wants to instill fear in American citizens, fear of their government, as a means of controlling and manipulating the masses. Outside the DC bubble--people aren't stupid--they see and understand the whole picture. Thank you for listening to us.

    What is Jeff Sessions doing and why is he acting so weird? I understand that he campaigned for Trump, however that is no reason for his behavior recently.

    Rosenstein needs to be excused
    Also I have tried to believe sessions was doing some good stuff and stuff behind the scenes but I Think he needs to go as well since the oversight committees still aren't documents as required by law ! He's not enforcing it .... Why not ?
