“Those who are supposed to make sure there are no conflicts of interest seem to have a few of their own.”
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday.
The hearing focused on Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Trey Gowdy grilled Rosenstein over the numerous conflicts of interests within Mueller’s investigation team.
“We don’t like conflicts of interest because it undercuts people’s confidence in both the process in the result,” Gowdy began. “Those who are supposed to make sure there are no conflicts of interest seem to have a few of their own.”
Just imagine the response by the media if it were revealed that numerous individuals investigating Hillary were die-hard Trump acolytes.
Trey Gowdy just opened a can of ass stomping on the special Council. If there was a special council investigating Hillary stacked with Republicans who donated to Trump everyone would be rioting in the streets. YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE.

Despite Gowdy’s grilling, Rosenstein insisted the investigation remained untainted.
Bottom line: Rod Rosenstein today is resending a clear signal that if Trump decides to fire Mueller based on anything that has happened so far, Trump would have to 1st fire Rosenstein & go hunting down the DOJ hierarchy for someone willing to do it, Saturday Night Massacre style.
