ROD’S RAGE: Top Republicans CALL FOR INVESTIGATION into Rosenstein’s Threats to GOP

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.17.18

Leading Republicans are calling on the DOJ’s Inspector General to investigate claims Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “threatened” Congressional staffers regarding their attempts to obtain documents related to his ongoing Russia probe.

House Freedom Caucus leaders Rep. Mark Meadows and Rep. Jim Jordan fired-off a scathing letter to the Department of Justice this week, demanding a thorough probe into allegations Rosenstein warned GOP staffers of severe consequences should they continue to request sensitive material surrounding his investigation.

“This notion Mr. Rosenstein threatened to use his official investigative powers as Deputy Attorney General to retaliate against rank-and-file staff members for sending written oversight requests raises concerns he has abused his authority in the context of this investigation,” wrote the two Republican lawmakers in the letter obtained by Fox News.

The letter comes after the Deputy Attorney General threatened to subpoena GOP Representatives and their staffers should they continue to demand the information, with one insider calling the warning “downright chilling.”

BREAKING: Rosenstein Indicts 12 RUSSIAN AGENTS for ‘Hacking’ 2016 Election

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.13.18

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced Friday that the Department of Justice has indicted an additional 12 Russian agents for “hacking” the 2016 presidential race for the White House.

“A federal grand jury has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election,” writes Fox News. “All 12 are members of GRU, the Russian intelligence agency.”

Rosenstein’s announcement comes as President Trump wraps up his two-day visit with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II, heading to Helsinki next week to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The indictments follow a previous string of charges earlier this year when the DOJ accused 13 Russian agents and three foreign companies of meddling in the 2016 election.

DAY OF RECKONING: Republicans Ask Rosenstein for Names of ‘EVERYONE’ on Mueller’s Team

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.25.18

At least nine GOP lawmakers asked Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to hand over the names of “everyone” working on Robert Mueller’s probe Monday, saying they were “disturbed” over the Democrat-packed investigation.

According to Fox News, the Republican legislators demanded the information from Rosenstein just days after the Inspector General report showed widespread bias throughout the DOJ and the FBI both before and after the 2016 race for the White House.

“We know that these biases were shared among multiple people at the FBI and could be easily uncovered by Mr. Mueller with simple vetting,” the letter says. “These individuals should not have been given an opportunity to influence – directly or indirectly – this special counsel investigation.”

“Congress’s constitutional oversight gives us the responsibility to know … whether other members of Mr. Mueller’s team harbor political biases and have conflicts of interest,” the letter concludes. “These investigators endanger our ability to uphold justice.”
