Rod Rosenstein Refuses to Turn Over Subpoenaed Memos – Backs Out of Congressional Hearing

Quote:
Last week, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC), who previously filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein, called for the Deputy Attorney General to appear before Congress under oath this week.

But today Rosenstein notified Congress he will not turn over the subpoenaed memos and will not appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Is Trump in charge or isnt he?

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?~ Patrick Henry

I don't know the legal grounds but why is he allowed to refuse?

Rosenstein is guilty as all hell. He's just hoping that the house flips to Democrat so his crimes will all be buried. Trump better have something in the works to deal with this weasel.

IMO we will soon see a huge bunch of utter filth leveled at the Republicans. I believe the Republicans now need to fight back. Cory Booker has said that he intends to "kick them (the Republicans) when they are down". I think the Republicans need to start kicking right now. Civility and decorum are dead (killed by Dems) this is now simply a street fight.

This is an old link but it tells what Congress can do to him.

"The chairman of the congressional committee investigating steroid use in baseball has warned that players who refuse to testify would likely be cited for contempt of Congress. How would a cited player be punished?

He’d face up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000. When a witness in a congressional inquiry ignores a subpoena—and refuses either to testify before a committee or hand over requested documents—the committee can vote to issue a citation for contempt. If the full House (or Senate, if it’s a Senate committee) also votes in favor, the citation gets passed to the office of the U.S. attorney, which is expected to bring the case before a federal judge.

The Constitution does not explicitly give Congress the right to issue subpoenas or contempt citations, but it began to do so not long after the birth of the Republic. The Supreme Court upheld the practice in 1821, reasoning that without it, Congress “would be exposed to every indignity and interruption that rudeness, caprice or even conspiracy may mediate against it.” The ruling gave Congress the right to imprison uncooperative witnesses for contempt, but for no longer than the duration of the Congress that passed the citation."

A few days ago Trump met with 'weasel Rosenstein' on Air Force One....now this happens. This all seems very strange IMO. Something is most definitely *up*.

And for the moment the up is: 'Up yours congress' ... I'm still waiting for the mid-terms to see who really gets the "up".
