    Comey memos could land Rosenstein in contempt of Congress: Top Democrat


    The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee says Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., is poised to subpoena the Justice Department for former FBI Director James Comey’s memos, which the agency so far has failed to produce.

    Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., warned such a move puts Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in jeopardy of being placed in contempt of Congress and the special counsel investigation of being shut down prematurely.

    Prematurely? It never should've happened to begin with!

    If you were after collusion, you already knew who the colluders were: Clinton, Comey, Rosenstein et al.

    This is like the Valerie Plame deal. Richard Armitage was the "leaker." He said so. To the special counsel. Plame wasn't an undercover spy. Her whole neighborhood knew who she worked for. She hadn't done anything undercover for years. But they kept going with a phony special counsel, and then sent Scooter Libby to jail because he "lied" by saying something slightly different twice. Which is guaranteed to happen to any person alive that gets pulled in for hours and questioned, then pulled in for hours again another time and asked the same questions. It's not a lie. It's saying the same thing twice in different ways, remembering a minor detail or two that you forgot about last time, forgetting a minor detail or two this time that you talked about last time, etc.

    Nadler announced in a statement that Goodlatte informed him Wednesday that "he intends to issue a subpoena to the Department of Justice — in this case to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein."

    A spokesperson for Goodlatte did not immediately return the Washington Examiner's request for confirmation.

    The Justice Department also did not immediately return a request for comment.

    Goodlatte was one of three committee chairmen who pressed the Justice Department to turn over the Comey memos. Comey, who was fired by President Trump in May 2017, testified before a congressional committee that he wrote memos detailing various conversations he had with Trump. In one memo, Comey claimed that the president pressured him to end the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. In another, Comey recalled how Trump demanded loyalty from him.

    The three chairmen, including House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., argued there is “no legal basis for withholding these materials from Congress" and set a Monday deadline for the DOJ to comply.

    However, the agency did not act in time and was granted a brief extension.

    Nadler warned that if a subpoena is issued it would be damaging to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

    And why is that? Perhaps because it will prove, AGAIN, what we already know, that this whole thing is a sham?

    Few skills are so well rewarded as the ability to convince parasites that they are victims.
