Deputy attorney-general Rosenstein threatened House committee to keep from turning over real documents

The Constitution--which a few diehard conservatives believe was once called "the supreme law of the land"--charges congress with overseeing the operation of the federal government.

So when congress suspects the FBI or Department of "Justice" of massive lawbreaking, and demands that those agencies provide documents to congress so that lawbreaking can be exposed and possibly prosecuted, what would you say when those agencies not only refuse to comply, but threaten conservative members of congress?

Turns out that's exactly what's been happening for the last five months.

Back in January the House committees on Intel, and Goverment Oversight ordered the DOJ to turn over original, unredacted records that would show top officials of the FBI and DOJ conspired to spy on the Trump campaign, to create false information harmful to Trump, and if he still won, to cripple his presidency.  

In response, deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to subpoena emails, phone records and other documents from lawmakers and staff on a Republican-led House committee during a tense meeting earlier this year, according to emails documenting the meeting.

Tellingly, the emails noted that Rosenstein "criticized the Committee for sending our requests in writing, and was further critical of the Committee’s request to have DOJ/FBI do the same when responding.”

If true this is hugely significant, because people trying to break the law or defy Constitutional mandates would be far more likely to insist that no communications be in writing, since that would provide solid evidence of their push to break the law.  And conversely, people seeking the truth would seem far more likely to push for all communications to be recorded.

I think this part alone unmasks Rosenstein as part of the Deep State--someone bent on sabotaging the president.  The fact that he's nominally a Republican doesn't change that a whit.

The Lying Mainstream Media laughs that "There's no such thing as the Deep State."  I'd love for some reporter to ask Rachel Madcow or Chrissy Matthews or Don Lemon or any of the shit-head Trump-haters whether they'd be more likely to trust the head of a government agency who insisted that no communications be in writing instead of the other way round.

Drain the swamp.  Prison and loss of pension for the crooks.  Do that a couple of times and we'll see dozens of lesser crooks spilling everything they know, eager to avoid punishment.
