McCabe: Rosenstein wrote Comey memo under duress

Well, this is different. Writing a book to justify his and his fellow felons actions BEFORE any ‘official’ charges are made certainly seems to be a proactive move on this little cretins part. He’s dirty, dirty, dirty but here he is, writing a book to get his disinformation out to those who are responsive to believing this crap. Check out the book’s title. That’s where I got miffed.

McCabe: Rosenstein wrote Comey memo under duress

The White House directed the firing of former FBI Director James Comey in a manner that left Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein "shaken" over his role in justifying Comey's ouster, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claims in his new book.

In “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump," McCabe reportedly writes that Rosenstein was deeply uncomfortable with Comey's firing, telling him at the time that writing the memo "wasn't his idea," according to excerpts obtained by The Guardian.


"He said it wasn't his idea. The president had ordered him to write the memo justifying the firing," McCabe writes.

In his book, McCabe quotes Rosenstein as saying, "There's no one here that I can trust," according to The Guardian.

This country will never be the same after all this. Where before all this, both sides mistrusted and wanted to VOTE the other out of power, but using foreign and domestic intelligence agencies against Americans is inexcusable. And now the country is really split into factions, and those factions despise one another. I wonder, does the ‘left’ think what they’ve done is worth it? If they do then that really says it all, that maintaining power no matter how, is the only thing that matters.

I try not to use The Guardian too often just because it tried to pull that Luke Harding crap. I’ll get over it.

and everyone else involved in Mueller Gate!

He gave his friend the notes of his conversation with the president so that it would get to the media and then Rosestein could appoint a special counsel for a bogus investigation. Whether people like Trump or not shouldn't matter when it comes to doing that. Imagine if it was Cheney or Obama or any other president.

BTW. Don't people serve at the pleasure of the president? They can fire anyone any time for any reason. And obstruction shouldn't come into play because there was no investigation happening at the time he fired Comey. Gawd I'm sick of this shit show.

understands what actually transpired before, during, and AFTER the primary and election is pretty damn sick of this mess. But it’s to one’s own detriment to try to ignore it or pretend it doesn’t exist. Another problem is that these assclowns on the ‘left’ want to enact legislation to put Trump & Co. under ‘supervision’. The Dims want to ‘supervise’ the Repubbie president and thereby disenfranchising them (Repubbie voters) retroactively. That’s quite a plan. If you can’t impeach him then reduce his powers and and status until his position is equivalent to that of the guy down in the mailroom.

EDIT: fixed multiple errors
