A second source has come forward confirming that Rosenstein threatened Nunes and House Intel Committee if they didn't stop investigation!
2018-02-05
[PowderedWigSociety] We reported yesterday on a shocking development that has taken place in the FISA abuse investigation. Fox News’ legal analyst Gregg Jarrett reported that a "congressional source" has informed him that Rod Rosenstein threatened Devin Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee with subpoenas of their email and text messages because he was "tired of dealing with the Intel Committee," an obvious attempt to halt or hinder the Intel Committee’s investigation.

This is a very serious charge. If confirmed or corroborated, Rosenstein should be charged with multiple crimes from tampering with an investigation to threatening government officials to obstruction of justice.

[Gregg] Jarrett’s charge that Rosenstein threatened Nunes and the Intel Committee has now been confirmed by a second source....

#11  This could very well be the opportunity to fatally wound the Democrats and send a bunch of people to prison. Maybe even dismantle the Deep State.

A wounded animal is very dangerous. Better to finish the job.

#10  They are betting that Congressional Republicans are too weak-kneed to do anything about it. Probably a good bet.

Ordinarily I would agree with this. However, there appear to be a few GOP Reps. with a spine, and I think they smell blood in the water. This could very well be the opportunity to fatally wound the Democrats and send a bunch of people to prison. Maybe even dismantle the Deep State.

#9  S[ecial Prosecutor needed to investigate Justice Dept and FBI. NOW. They are attempting to stop Congress in the official role of oversight of these agencies. This is a coup by agencies that have gone rogue against the authorities tasked with preventing them from doing so.

If these reports are true, this is sedition, plain and simple, and these officials must be prosecuted. The subversion of a constitutional duty and incitement of discontention to lawful authority is evident, and Congress must ensure that it is rooted out and destroyed at the FBI and DOJ.

#7  Rosenstein does not appear to be serving the country or the FBI or justice at this point.
