Rod Rosenstein Senate Testimony Exposes Comey & McCabe as Graham Runs Cover

Rod Rosenstein Senate Testimony Exposes Comey & McCabe as Graham Runs Cover

June 3, 2020 – Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified today at the Senate Committee chaired by Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) to address the Russia probe. This hearing became almost immediately apparent as nothing but a show and PR stunt for Graham. If he had any intentions of taking it seriously, there were plenty of questions he could and should have asked. He even said in his opening statement that he didn’t believe Rod Rosenstein was involved in any kind of conspiracy against the president.

This hearing seems to be a way for Graham to make it look like he is doing something about Spygate and is serious about getting to the bottom of what happened. It’s a way for him to save face, while running cover for former Obama officials. The American people have been subjected to this frustrating dog-and-pony show before, and we want substance. Meat. We want real hearings; we want real questions asked; we don’t want to hear politicians dance around political correctness and circular word salads. We are sick of watching Democrats attempt to hijack official hearings to grandstand and virtue signal, and lie through their teeth, as their allies in the media egg them on. We have no patience for it.

So, what are some of the key takeaways and observations from today’s testimony?

As Ms. Lokhova points out, Rosenstein was forced to admit there was no basis for the Mueller Special Counsel.

Veteran investigative reporter John Solomon discusses the recent statement by Andrew McCabe regarding Mr. Rosenstein’s testimony today:

It is quite clear, from everything we know about Andrew McCabe, that he and his other co-conspirators like James Comey are panicking.

Shem makes a very good point here, and he later points out that Rosenstein refuses to condemn what happened to General Flynn.

Emerald observes the obvious, which is that Lindsay Graham was taking the opportunity to cover for Rosenstein before the hearing had even really begun.

Columnist Brian Cates has a different take on what is really going on with this hearing. He believes that Rosenstein helped set a trap for the conspirators. By allowing the Special Counsel to go ahead, no one can say there was ANY obstruction of that “investigation.”

Brian is honing in on several exchanges wherein Rod Rosenstein made these admissions regarding the conduct of the FBI, and both James Comey and Andrew McCabe.

On the Democrat side of the isle, Mazie Hirono thought she was speaking to Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

More stunning admissions from Rosenstein that need additional follow up. Andrew McCabe needs to be called in to explain what he was doing and why he was doing it.

Are they trying to set McCabe up as the fall guy? If the FBI was making materially false statements to the Department of Justice (DOJ), isn’t that considered a conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Government?

Svetlana has noticed something key here — the fact that Carter Page was not even part of the campaign anymore at the time Rosenstein signed the FISA in June of 2o17. This is going after a duly elected President of the United States.

This should be the key takeaway from this hearing: Lindsay Graham prevented the American people from learning the truth about the depths of the corruption today. Further, he was clearly attempting to run cover. Deeply disappointing, this turn of events borders on betrayal to the millions of Americans out there anticipating Justice to be served in this case.

Rosenstein has thrown Comey and McCabe under the bus among others of his own Department of Justice team, and somehow wants everyone else to believe he is innocent of everything. Mueller did NOT ‘inherit’ his team, Mueller selectively picked committed Democrats with a bias.

How is it possible that the FBI agents running Crossfire Hurricane could then sign on to the Special Counsel staff, and outline the scope of the supposedly “independent” investigation?

Rosenstein was given the opportunity to speak about the egregious treatment of General Flynn and chose not to. History will remember him as a coward for this.

Rosenstein claims he didn’t believe the top leadership of the FBI had been politicized. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that the entire Obama government was politicized and weaponized.

Ted Cruz seemed to be one of the few people really willing to drill into Rosenstein.

We still have yet to see the original Flynn 302.

It’s disconcerting to see someone like Dianne Feinstein, who had a Chinese spy driving her around for 20 years, but nevertheless still is able to participle in this kind of a proceeding. She should not hold any office.

He did this more than once, purposely conflating things — and he was allowed to get away with it.

That quote was so ridiculous, it speaks for itself.

No one really asked him about this incident, unsurprisingly.

While not seeking answers to some poignant questions the public wanted to hear, I think that this hearing did provide some insight into how these officials think.

These admission will be helpful for John Durham’s investigation.

This admission alone is enough to investigate the entire Special Counsel operation.

It remains to be seen if anything will be done about this falsehood.

Georgetown Law Professor Jonathan Turley has some solid observations about today.

This is outrageous. At the very least, he should be charged with criminal negligence.

Sundance from the Conservative Treehouse essentially came to the same conclusion I did. Lindsay Graham was running cover for his Deep State cronies. He believes that Lindsay is actively engaged in a counter-measures cover up, attempting to spin what happened, and make it look like nothing more needs to be done. Lindsay seemed not only lacking enthusiasm, but he appeared as though he had to be dragged kicking and screaming into leading this hearing. Graham refused to ask about Rod’s wife, Lisa Barsoomian, a CIA employee, and any potential conflicts of interest.

While we did not get all our questions answered, we did get several important admissions that could aid U.S. Attorney John Durham in his probe. Former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe are not sleeping soundly, that’s for sure. These investigations are still ongoing. I do not believe that the Spygate coup plotters are going to get away Scot-free.
