Once Attorney General Jeff Sessions shocked President Donald Trump and Republicans on Capital Hill, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein jumped at the chance to direct the witch hunt against President Donald Trump. He was the person who appointed anti-Trump former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the special counsel investigation.
Accusations are now being leveled against Rosenstein from several members of the House of Representative, claiming that Rosenstein has threatened to subpoena them and member of their staff to obtain their emails and other items connected to the House Intelligene Committee probe of Russia and the election.
(Fox News) – GOP lawmakers accused the Justice Department of “intimidation” on the heels of a Fox News report that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein once threatened to “subpoena” House committee members, with one lawmaker now claiming staffers have been left “physically shaking” over Rosenstein’s tactics.
Fox News’ Catherine Herridge reported Tuesday on emails that described a tense closed-door meeting in January. Written by commitee staffers, they said Rosenstein threatened to subpoena emails, phone records and other documents from lawmakers and aides on the House Intelligence Committee — in response to inquiries regarding the Russia probe.
One staffer said Rosenstein launched a “sustained personal attack against a congressional staffer in retaliation for vigorous oversight” and called the threats “downright chilling.”
The DOJ and FBI have disputed the characterizations of the meetings, with a DOJ official telling Fox News that officials in the room described the characterization of events as false…
