Remember when you were in trouble as a kid? And perhaps one of your siblings would say, “Ooo, you’re in trou-ble!”
I feel like I’m the sibling saying that to the Democrats. In this case, “Ooo, Rod Rosenstein, you’re in trou-ble!”
According to Fox News:
The chairman of the House Freedom Caucus is calling on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appear before Congress this week to testify about reports claiming he suggested wearing a “wire” to record President Trump and broached invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.
You know who wears a wire? A rat. In this case, a swamp rat.
The article continues,
It comes amid an uncertain future for Rosenstein, who has disputed the accuracy of those reports and is scheduled to meet with President Trump on Thursday amid rumors of his exit from the Justice Department.
“You can’t have the number two official at the Department of Justice making comments about wiring the President and not address it,” Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., tweeted Tuesday. “Rod Rosenstein must come before Congress this week, under oath, and tell the truth about his alleged statements.”
I completely agree. “Defend yourself, Rosenstein!“. Guilty until proven innocent, just like Justice Kavanaugh.
We are told that Rosenstein will meet with the president on Thurs. As for that meeting, rumors persist that Rosenstein plans to resign.
Democrats are beside themselves as they watch their gauntlet of protection get peeled away, layer by delicious layer.
I watched an interview with Adam Schiff the other day, and he practically begged Rosenstein not to resign, but instead wait to be fired. As if that makes a difference?
Consider that if Rosenstein had any scruples, he would have resigned months ago. Certainly under these circumstances, that the most honorable thing to do. But Schiff wants the “optics” to be that President Trump fired Rosenstein because Trump is concerned about himself.
What gall by Schiff, though America is used to his theatrics.
Simply put, Trump has every right to fire his acting top justice officer who wanted to invoke the 25th Amendment against him. Some might consider that treason.
If Trump uses the art of the deal, then Rosenstein will resign. He likely will need a “get out of jail free” card after this is all said and done. With that in mind, Rosenstein may not poke the tiger.
As for the meeting, you can bet President Trump will be loaded for bear. He will have a chronology of everything Rosenstein did. Undoubtedly President Trump sees Rosenstein as his enemy, though he may not say this publicly.
