Watch: Rod Rosenstein is Either The Most Corrupt Lawyer to Serve His Country Or A Moron
First, notice in the video, Rosenstein looks like a scared puppy dog, second Rosenstein is either incredibly corrupt or a moron.
Senator Ted Cruz grilled Rosenstein and it was so fun to watch.
Rosenstein appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee as a witness in the panel’s new investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. During testimony, Rosenstein claimed that he reviewed the FISA application but, “not word for word.”
When asked by Senator Cruz if he knew that the Steele Dossier had already been disavowed, he said, “no.”
This is a long clip but, watch Rosenstein was shaken up.

During another moment of the hearing Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R), asked, “If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the warrant application?”
“No, I would not,” Rosenstein said.
Graham also prompted Rosenstein to acknowledge there was scant collusion evidence in August 2017.
“The whole concept that the campaign was colluding with the Russians, there was no there, there in August 2017. Do you agree with that statement?” he asked.
Rosenstein replied: “I agree with that general statement.”
In August 2017 Rosenstein was the author of the “scope memo” which allowed Special Prosecutor Mueller’s investigating team to run rampant.
It wasn’t just Republican lawmakers that used Rosenstein as a punching bag so did Democrats. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, (D-RI) hammered the former deputy attorney general over a lack of transparency.
Whitehouse, did not mention Crossfire Hurrican but, was fired up that Rosenstein and the DOJ did not respond to “question for the record” (QRFs).
“The day will come when there is a Democrat Department of Justice and attorney general. The day will come when there is a Democrat sitting in that chair,” Whitehouse said at the closing of his fiery remarks, pointing toward committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. “And a policy that you don’t ever get QFRs answered by the Department that we oversee is not a good policy.”
He added: “It is someone’s policy, and I want it stopped.”
