President Donald Trump has a habit of surrounding himself with bigger amoral, stupid, greedy, and sociopathic a-holes than himself. Each of them was picked with the expressed intent to destroy the very departments they were sworn to protect, but not all of them are as sycophantic and incompetent.
For example, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee grilled Rod Rosenstein, Trump’s appointed Deputy Attorney General, in an obvious effort to help their efforts at discrediting Special Counsel Robert Mueller, thus validating Trump’s preposterous claim that the FBI is “biased” against him.
For instance, it was discovered last night that two FBI agents involved in the Russia probe called Trump an ‘idiot.’ You know, pretty much like every other person with a brainstem has said.
Rosenstein Didn’t Tell Them What They Wanted To Hear
Rosenstein said Wednesday that he has seen no good cause to fire Robert Mueller from his role as special counsel in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Rosenstein faced a barrage of questions from Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday amid reports that FBI officials on Mueller’s team had engaged in political bias. Trump and his cronies have jumped all over the revelations to discredit the efforts of Muller. Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Russia probe after Attorney General Jeff Sessionsrecused himself, told lawmakers that Mueller did the right thing by firing an FBI agent on the investigation over anti-Trump text messages he had sent to a colleague during the campaign.
Nadler asked Rosenstein:
“Have you seen good cause to fire special counsel Mueller?”
Rosenstein replied a flat out:
Rosenstein would eventually go on to speak very highly of Robert Mueller, in response to Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) that:
“Based upon his reputation, his service, his patriotism, and his experience with the department and the FBI, I believe he was an ideal choice for this task.”
Rosenstein said. It seems quite obvious that Trump isn’t getting every sycophantic crony to stand by him and interfere with the integrity of the Russian investigation.
