Mr. Rosenstein, one of the most powerful men in the Department of Justice, threatened to investigate members of Congress and their staff if Congress continued to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to oversee the increasingly rogue federal department.
In a statement to Fox News, a DOJ official denied that Mr. Rosenstein threatened Congress in a bizarre statement — that confirmed Mr. Rosenstein did precisely that.
After admitting Mr. Rosenstein threatened Congress for overseeing his department, the DOJ official went on to reiterate that the threat remains.
This is Republicans elected to Congress who are justifiably outraged over the conduct of a Republican official in a powerful post inside a Republican president’s Department of Justice.
One final note: This lawless legal cheat got his law degree from Harvard University — just like President Obama.
