Deputy Attorney General might want to plug the leaks in his own office before he keeps trumpeting how he is reforming the corrupt FBI.
A high-ranking Justice Department official with a pristine record of divulging Intel gems now says Rosenstein privately fumes at the likes of Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows and other GOP Congressman who have been relentlessly pressuring Rosenstein to produce internal documents related to many facets of FBI corruption.
“Rosenstein and his people have no respect for Congress, especially GOP,” the Justice source confirmed. “Most of the GOP go along quietly because they know Rosenstein will target them privately if they speak out against the DOJ or stay in his face about an issue.”
Apparently common insider knowledge in The Swamp.
During a recent internal exchange, a perturbed Rosenstein aired his frustration with Jordan and Nunes in particular but collectively framed his disdain for all GOP House members who have made demands on Rosenstein to turn over troves of documents: “They’re pieces of shit,” Rosenstein said, according to a well-placed DOJ official.
Subpoena the emails and texts of high-ranking DOJ officials, one source stressed to GOP Congress members. “You would be floored.”
That revelation is significant. The source said Rosenstein’s feelings are echoed throughout the Justice Department. But that attitude matched his tone and demanor on Thursday.
Rosenstein does not respond well to pressure, based on his behavior at Thursday’s House Oversight showdown with Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray. CNBC reports:
