WASHINGTON— Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told lawmakers Wednesday that he would not have approved an FBI surveillance application for a former Trump campaign aide during the Russia investigation had he known at the time about the problems that have since been revealed.Rosenstein’s comments amounted to a striking concession that law enforcement officials made mistakes as they scrutinized ties between Russia and Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. But even as he acknowledged the legitimacy of anger from Trump and his allies, he defended his appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe and affirmed his support for the conclusion that Russia interfered but did not criminally conspire

I watched the hearing - - and I don't understand why they even called Rosie in. He doesn't know anything. He never heard of the DOJ or the FBI. In fact - - he was on the Planet Glinkor all the while the investigations were taking place. They should try calling in someone who knows something.

Rosenstein oversaw the investigation of Trump for 2 years, now admits many mistakes made, and much of the presumptions were wrong. And yet, Rosenstein has not been the source of any revelations of mistakes made, or presumptions that were wrong. Why is that, Mr. Rosenstein? Don't you have a duty to the public to tell the truth, rather than concealing it?

It seems like the questioning was pretty pathetic. Miss Lindsay is slipping back into his old persona. "This is about moving forward as a nation." What the heck does that mean? We have an ONGOING criminal conspiracy to overthrow and inhibit a presidency. Rosenstein FACILITATED that. If he was ignorant of what was going on, he was WILLFULLY so.

Rosenstein got caught with his hands in the cookie jar. Plain and simple as that. He would do it again in a heartbeat, but he might do it slightly different so as to not get caught. He is claiming ignorance, but at least now he is on the record for future prosecutions. That is never a bad thing.

Though others may have forgotten, we are still recovering from the whiplash induced by Minnesota Democrats' about-face on the forces behind the riots that have convulsed the Twin Cities.State leaders stood idly by last week as the Twin Cities burned. Keith Ellison, the Minnesota attorney general and former Democratic National Committee deputy chair, invoked Martin Luther King Jr. to declare that "rioting is the voice of the unheard." Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey allowed protesters to torch a police station, saying that "the symbolism of a building cannot outweigh the importance of life."When, over the weekend, Democratic governor Tim Walz summoned the National Guard to address the riots, the message shifted.

President Donald Trump shared a letter on Thursday afternoon from famed attorney John M. Dowd attacking former Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who made a vicious attack on the president this week.Mattis’ statement claimed that the numerous violent rioters represented only “small number of lawbreakers,” which does not square well with numerous videos that have emerged showing widespread looting, attacks on law enforcement, and the destruction of businesses in the nation’s inner cities. Mattis’ statement also appeared to claim that Trump’s desire to restore law and order was somehow an attempt to divide the American people.Trump shared the letter from Dowd to Mattis late on Thursday, which stated: Jim:

The ceremony began with attorney Benjamin Crump calling some of Floyd’s family members to the front of the room to deliver remarks. They recounted their childhood, growing up with Floyd, who they said close friends and family members called "Perry."

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.
