Surprise! Rod Rosenstein Is Also Refusing to Answer Senate Oversight Questions, Too

This guy is not long for this job.

Whatever Mueller does, whether it's to contrive a charge against Trump, write up a report to Congress suggesting charges without actually formally lodging them, or clears him, when Mueller is done doing whatever he's doing, Rosenstein is getting fired.

As he should be.

He seems to think his primary mission is to protect his department from embarrassing disclosures instead of enforcing the law and reporting to those with constitutional oversight powers.

It's been more than two months since the chairman of a major Senate oversight committee sent a pointed request for information about the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation to the Department of Justice (DOJ), but the agency still hasn't responded to the lawmaker's inquiry.

The March 1, 2018, letter from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asked eight questions about DOJís handling of the Clinton e-mail investigation shortly before and after the 2016 presidential election. The specific focus was on decision-making process after the discovery that a laptop owned by Anthony Weiner, who was then married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, contained potentially classified e-mails to and from former secretary of state Clinton.

Multiple sources familiar with the matter told The Federalist that Rosenstein has yet to respond to Johnson's inquiry. In his letter, Johnson requested a response by March 15, 2018....

DOJ's refusal to respond to congressional oversight requests has become a disturbing pattern. The federal law enforcement agency regularly ignores requests, slow-walks them, or demands unnecessary redactions unrelated to privacy or national security matters. Rosenstein recently accused lawmakers of extortion after they threatened to take action against him if he continued to defy congressional requests for information about agency activities.

"Extortion" = proper, lawful demands for information that congressional overseers are constitutionally entitled to

Question: When Rod Rosenstein is fired, which #Resistance outlet will he wind up working for? CNN, MSNBC, ABCNews, or CBSNews?
