    He should be fired anyway.

    Nunes is all talk. Talk and stunts. Talk stunts and fake reports.

    What good is holding Rosestein in contempt. Nunes says he wants to impeach Rosenstein.

    Nunes doesn't have the votes.

    Lets see how much power Nunes has. Remember when you thought his report was going to be taken seriously?

    It fell flat on its face.

    Trump's newest BBF of the moment, since he's pissed off most of his American friends, not to mention the heads of many of America's traditional allies.



    Amusing to watch Trump and his supporters, eat their own and trust people like Putin and Kim Jong-un more than they trust people of their own party and Trump's picks.

    The DoJ / FBI at the highest levels is totally out of control. Trump should start firing people with Sessions first and Rosenstein second and I am sure he has a list. It's time to clean house.

    We have over 2 dozen FBI Agents that want a subpoena so they can testify before congress, under oath, to out their bosses.
    Who is withholding documents from Congress?

    Who is out of control at the FBI/DOJ?

    Washington (CNN)Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's ongoing battle with House Republicans reached new heights Tuesday, as the No. 2 senior leader of the Justice Department plans to call on the House to investigate its own committee staff.

    Rosenstein has butted heads with House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes for months over a subpoena for documents related to the Russia investigation, but the battle spilled out into public view Tuesday after Fox News reported staff on the committee felt "personally attacked" at a meeting with Rosenstein in January.

    Justice Department officials dispute the recounting of the closed-door meeting detailed in the story, and Rosenstein plans to "request that the House general counsel conduct an internal investigation of these Congressional staffers' conduct" when he returns from a foreign trip this week, DOJ said.

    "The Deputy Attorney General was making the point -- after being threatened with contempt -- that as an American citizen charged with the offense of contempt of Congress, he would have the right to defend himself, including requesting production of relevant emails and text messages and calling them as witnesses to demonstrate that their allegations are false," the official said. "That is why he put them on notice to retain relevant emails and text messages, and he hopes they did so."

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/12/polit...ion/index.html


    Staffers for Devin Nunes apparently threatened to hold Rod Rosenstein in Contempt of Congress in a recent meeting. He told them if they did, he would have the right to subpoena their communications and put them on the witness stand to prove them wrong. He's 100% right about that.

    Wow this is just flat out nuts. But then again it is Nunes.

    They should just turn over their emails and text messages to the DOJ. If they've done nothing wrong, then they have noting to fear. Therefore, surely they'll comply with the request. Why wouldn't they?

    Rosenstein threatened to 'subpoena' GOP-led committee in 'chilling' clash over records, emails show | Fox News
    Short answer;
    1- RR redacts the document, trump signs the declassification order, rr fired or worse.
    2- RR releases the document, he is fired or worse

    Only RR gets to chose.
