Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday that he does not believe members of the special counsel or FBI involved in the Russia investigation give off the appearance of impropriety for having donated to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.vWhere things got heated: GOP members on the committee argued that several FBI agents investigating Russian collusion are biased, as seen through the anti-Trump texts sent by Peter Strzok. Rosenstein responded by stating that the DOJ recognizes they have employees with political opinions, and work to ensure they "are not in any way a factor in how they conduct themselves in office." ... Note that Mueller fired Strzok after learning of the text exchange.

He doesn't believe there is "good cause" to fire Mueller: I know what he's doing. If I thought he was doing something inappropriate I would take action."

Rosenstein said he doesn't regret hiring Mueller: "I believe based on his reputation, his service, his patriotism, and his experience with the department and with the FBI, I believe he was an ideal choice for this task."

Today's hearing, in which the President's allies sought to put Mueller, the FBI and DOJ on trial, again demonstrates that the greatest threat to our democracy is from within.

Rosenstein?

What would a [oh, Republican?] who was appointed to his position by [oh, Trump?] know about fairness to a Republican named Trump?

Mr Mueller was widely praised by politicians of both parties for his laser-like focus on the truth and his integrity.

Mr Mueller has been exposing facts.

Mr Mueller had an issue in is team, and he dealt with it.

Mr Mueller has been widely praised by people who have worked with, and for, him as a non-partisan person of integrity.

Why is that so uncomfortable for Republicans?

Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down

Another Saturday night massacre?

I think Trump has his back to the wall and (much like a cornered rat) is desperate enough to try anything.

Even with what happened to Nixon, Trump is arrogant enough to think he can beat this thing.

Thanks, Rod, for showing a bit of backbone in this spineless age...

Here is what should scare Trump... Does Mueller have enough evidence already to have Trump indicted? If so, firing him could just mean that information gets released.

You mean quarter-wit.

Surely a village somewhere is missing their idiot. And sad too because Snippy used to have something worth posting every once in a while.

It has been proven the Mueller is incapable of rendering an unbiased, completely free from scandal, investigation. He has also proven that he is an ineffective manager and Partisan.
Meeting with several key Hilary Alies before and during the investigation, failing to remove Investigators that have not just a political bias, but have stated they would do what they had to to interfere with the election; and afterwards to cause as much trouble to stall Presidents Trumps Administration, along with stalling the investigation.
