In their bid to oust and discredit our democratically elected President, the Democrats and the left have created an environment that can only be described as absolute insanity. First there was the now discredited Russian collusion angle. Since that has failed, they are moving on to obstruction of justice. And now sources are reporting that DOJ number 2 Rod Rosentein, the one who penned the memo recommending Comey’s firing, may potentially have to recuse himself from the Trump investigation.
In the following video, Right Wing News (now called Today’s Yellow Snow on YouTube for algorithmic purposes) examines this ongoing saga of lies and propaganda. In a bizarre statement, Rosentein is now alluding that he never mentioned potentially recusing himself. The issue of recusal aside, many law professionals are saying that there is absolutely no case for obstruction to be found. Of course, this won’t stop the witch hunt of Trump; at this point it’s more about attacking his public image rather than upholding the law.

AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE MEDIA AT:
“Sources” stated that Rosenstein, the number two man at the Department of Justice, “has privately acknowledged to colleagues that he may have to recuse himself from the matter.”
The DOJ, however, insisted the deputy attorney general’s stance on recusal remains the same. “As the Deputy Attorney General has said numerous times, if there comes a point when he needs to recuse, he will. However, nothing has changed,” DOJ Spokesman Ian Prior told Breitbart News.
Rosenstein came to be the top law enforcement official with regard to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections after he was sworn in in April. In March, Attorney General Jeff Sessions himself had recused himself based on his being involved in the Trump presidential campaign.
CONTRARY TO THE NONSENSE SPEWED BY MSLSD AND CNN, JUST SO THAT IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT JEFF SESSIONS NEVER CAME CLOSE TO LYING ABOUT HIS INTERACTION WITH THE RUSSIANS:
For anyone who hasn't seen what the mainstreaam media and the Democrats continue to LIE about, here is the transcript via C-SPAN:
Franken: CNN just published a story alleging that the intelligence community provided documents to the president-elect last week, that included information that “Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.” These documents also allegedly say “there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” Again, I’m telling you this as it’s coming out, so you know. But if it’s true, it’s obviously extremely serious, and if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?
Sessions: Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.
Franken: Very well.
Following the leak of ex-FBI Director James Comey’s now-infamous “let this go” memo, supposedly based on a conversation between President Donald Trump and himself, in May, Rosenstein made the decision to appoint Mueller as special counsel for the investigation.
Under oath before Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey admitted he himself leaked the memo to the press through friend and Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman with the specific purpose of forcing Rosenstein’s hand to make that appointment. Mueller was Comey’s predecessor as head of the FBI and a friend and mentor of his.
Questions have been raised about the future of Mueller’s role, especially given his appointment of several attorneys who have either represented the Clinton Foundation in the past or were themselves donors to the Hillary Clinton campaign for president to serve beneath him in the investigation.

The prospect of Rosenstein’s recusal comes amid reports the rapidly expanding special counsel investigation is shifting away from alleged collusion between Russian officials and the Trump campaign and towards allegations of obstruction of justice by the president. President Trump has vigorously objected to the propriety of such an investigation.
Presumably, a probe into possible obstruction would involve investigating the Comey’s firing in May. Rosenstein himself wrote the memorandum on which Trump ostensibly made that decision, calling for Comey’s dismissal based on his handling of the Clinton email server scandal.
His involvement in the firing has lead to speculation Rosenstein may need to act as a witness for Mueller’s investigation. Asked about the prospect and his potential need to recuse during his testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Rosenstein said only, “I am working with career professionals who know these rules and are responsible for enforcing these rules, and I can assure you that we’re going to do the right thing, and we’re going to defend the integrity of that investigation.”
The same ABC report cited sources claiming Rosenstein has not, as of yet, formally asked DOJ ethics attorneys for advice on recusal.
A growing group of law professors, however, have joined the president in questioning Mueller’s decision to look into obstruction over the matter. Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz has told media outlets several times that he does not think a case for obstruction is possible given the facts, as has Florida International University College of Law’s Elizabeth Price Foley.
Randy Barnett, Georgetown University Law Center’s Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory, called on Mueller to resign over his own ties to Comey, also a subject of the investigation, in a series of tweets Thursday:
Mueller should resign not recuse. If he recuses, the matter will be delegates to one of the Democrat attack lawyers he's hired. /2

The only way out I see is for AG (not DAG) to appoint a truly outside-the-beltway special counsel to investigate the (bogus) "obstruction"/3

Should the deputy attorney general choose to recuse himself, ultimate authority for the Russia investigation would fall to DOJ’s number three, Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand.
