No doubt furious following the remarks of Rod Rosenstein and the leaked questions Mueller is supposed to request that the President, he may have had enough.
On Wednesday the President said, “A Rigged System — They don’t need to turn over Documents to Congress. What are they afraid of? So much redacting? Why such unequal “justice?” Sooner or later, I will have no option but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!”
A Rigged System – They do not want to turn over Records to Congress. Why redacting? Why such unequal “justice?” At some stage I will not have any choice but to use the powers given to the Presidency and get involved!
Just what could the President do? Well, he could fire Rosenstein, he can declassify everything, he can pardon everybody. The President doesn’t need to fire Mueller to the investigation, he could simply use his ability to nullify it.
On Monday alleged question that Mueller will ask the PResident were leaked through the New York Times. Not one of the questions had anything related to collusion and had more to do with obstruction.
Additionally, all of the questions had been opened ended and designed to grab the President at a snare. Among the questions asked the President how “he believed about the Mueller appointment”
“There’s not a constitutional foundation for oversight — that is something which has been viewed as kind of an implied power that acquired through recent years. There are conflicts between the executive and legislative branch over supervision throughout history.”
House Republicans did write articles of impeachment if Rosenstein did not turn over subpoenaed records; Rosenstein did turn the records over to Congress.
Congressman Mark Meadows has responded to Rosenstein’s attack.
When he considers being asked to do his occupation is ‘extortion,’ subsequently Rod Rosenstein must step aside and allow us to locate a brand new Deputy Attorney General–rather one who is thinking about transparency
