Re: Rosenstein testimony.

I came across this article by Turley yesterday and almost fell out of my chair. How was this missed by the fakemedia, including FOX? How many times I had to hear the unwashed liberals tell me about the fake 1000 idiots and how Mueller could not charge Mr Trump while in office. THERE WAS NOTHING TO CHARGE him with!!

I copied the jawdropping section that I never heard before:

"Thus, it was not just Barr but Rosenstein, who has been heralded by Democrats, who rejected the obstruction claim.

Hirono again interrupted him but Rosenstein persisted:

“I’m sorry, senator, that’s what I tried to answer the first time. The answer is yes, I do not believe that the president committed a crime that warrants prosecution. That’s the issue that we review as prosecutors, but-“

That is when Hirono cited the “1000 prosecutors” who signed a letter contradicting that conclusion. Many of those individuals supported other rejected claims of crimes. Rosenstein body slammed the prosecutors and the use of such letters as some type of authoritative source. As Hirono tried to stop him, Rosenstein added that “no one” supported that view. Here is the exchange:

Rod Rosenstein: ( 02:29:06)
Well, senator, we have a lot more than 1,000 former DOJ prosecutors, and I don’t know whether all those people read the entire report or were familiar with all the evidence, but I was, and I believe Attorney General Barr has already explained his conclusion. Senator, I think it’s very important when we complete investigations, we reach conclusions, and the department either determines a case merits prosecution or it does not, and we determined that that case does not merit prosecution. Now, people are free to express contrary opinions, and because the report is probably-

Senator Hirono: ( 02:29:33)
I think I have to repeat myself again. I’ve read the Mueller report. They did not say that there was not enough evidence with regard to obstruction of justice.

Rod Rosenstein: ( 02:29:43)
[crosstalk 02:29:43]-

Senator Hirono: ( 02:29:43)
They [inaudible 02:29:43], and I disagree with Mueller. I don’t know why he didn’t come to the conclusion that there was actually enough evidence on the obstruction of justice issues but that they could not-

Mr. Chairman: ( 02:29:53)
Senator-

Senator Hirono: ( 02:29:54)
… they could not indict the president. That part is really clear.

Mr. Chairman: ( 02:29:57)
Thank you. Thank you very much.

Rod Rosenstein: ( 02:29:58)
I think, senator-

Senator Hirono: ( 02:29:58)
Thank you.

Rod Rosenstein: ( 02:29:59)
… if I may explain-

Mr. Chairman: ( 02:29:59)
Thank you.

Rod Rosenstein: ( 02:29:59)
… Mr. Chairman.

Mr. Chairman: ( 02:30:00)
No. That’s good. That’s-

Rod Rosenstein: ( 02:30:01)
I think that’s unfair, senator, because the investigation was concluded. It was appropriately reviewed. No one recommended in favor prosecution, the Attorney General and I determined the prosecution was not warranted, and that is-
