Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help With Kavanaugh Papers in Unusual Request
quote:

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday.

Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide.


This should be interesting.

re: Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help With Kavanaugh Papers in Unusual Request
I would say “swamp fighting back”, but all I’ve heard is that Kavanaugh IS the swamp.

I has a confused.

Edit: could this have something to do with the lefts claim that Justice Kennedy and Trump supposedly had a deal to pick Kavanaugh if he retired? Maybe another pretext for another BS investigation?

Otherwise I’m lost.

And if Sessions doesn't then he needs to fire Rod and then Sessions.

That seems rather odd. What would be his reasoning for making such a request?

re: Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help With Kavanaugh Papers in Unusual Request
I haven't fully kept up, but assue that Rosenstein / FBI still haven't fully produced files to the Senate. Serious question... why did Rosenstein say they couldn't / wouldn't do so? Part of me thinks he said something to the effect that they were understaffed and it was too much of a burden in some way. But I may be incorrect, so am asking here.

Obvious implication is that if he doesn't have manpower to follow through on that, then volunteering manpower for other work outside the scope of normal duties is revealing.

What happened to the Keebler elf? Did he recuse himself from this as well?
If Rosenstein is running everything, can the elf have his Senate seat back?
