Report: Rosenstein Appointed a Special Counsel to Investigate Trump in Response to a Request From Dem Senator Mark Warner
Senator Mark Warner (D-VA); DAG Rod Rosenstein
A new report out by CNN sheds some light on what happened during the two critical weeks from the time James Comey was fired as FBI Director to when Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Trump.
After Comey was fired, he immediately launched a campaign to get a special counsel appointed to investigate Trump by leaking classified memos of conversations he had with the President to the New York Times through a friend – the next day Mueller was appointed.
Comey wasn’t the only one gunning for a special counsel to hunt down President Trump.
According to CNN, the corrupt Democrat Senator from Virginia, Mark Warner who is the Vice Chairman of the even more corrupt Senate Intel Committee, requested Rosenstein appoint a special counsel to investigate President Trump.
Rosenstein and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe then met with the entire gang of eight the day Mueller was appointed as Special Counsel.
In the days immediately after Comey was fired, McCabe pushed for the appointment of a special counsel but Rosenstein seemed hesitant, despite many calls to do so.
On May 11, two days after Comey was fired, Rosenstein briefed Republican Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr of North Carolina and the panel’s top Democrat, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, who were running their own Russia investigation. According to contemporaneous text messages between FBI officials, “Warner conveyed that he wanted (a) special counsel” and Rosenstein “said he took that under advisement.”
McCabe and Rosenstein later met with the full “Gang of Eight,” the Republican and Democratic congressional leaders and intelligence committee heads, the day Mueller was appointed.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote the memo recommending President Trump fire James Comey for his handling of the Clinton email investigation, yet Rosenstein then turned around and appointed a Special Counsel to investigate Trump for obstruction of justice for firing Comey.
This makes Rosenstein a potential witness – this is the swamp personified.
Who is Mark Warner to be investigating so-called Trump-Russia collusion or demand a special counsel?
Mark Warner tried to set up a secret meeting with dossier author Christopher Steele using an encrypted app to hide his tracks.
Warner used the lobbyist of a Russian oligarch to organize the secret meeting.
To guarantee some of this secrecy, Sen Warner was communicating with the Russian Oligarch’s Lobbyist through the encrypted messaging app, Signal. Warner had his messages on Signal set to disappear after a designated amount of time as evidenced by the hourglass icon at the top right of the screenshots.
An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow previously went off on Mark Warner for his corruption.
“Wait, wait, I wanna say this again. The ranking member of the United States Senate is talking to a lobbyist to talk to a Russian Oligarch who’s banned from coming to the U.S. so he can get to Christopher Steele who authored the Fusion GPS Steele dossier in conjunction with the number 4 at the Justice Department wife Bruce Ohr [Nellie] and you think this okay? It’s not!” Sekulow said.
“Rosenstein appointed Mueller in response to request from Dem senator?” Tom Fitton said referring to CNN’s new report.
