Coup Plotter Rosenstein: Government Transparency Isn’t Always Advisable (VIDEO)
DAG Rod Rosenstein
Coup plotter Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein talked about the importance of the ‘rule of law’ Monday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
Rosenstein, who discussed wearing a wire to record President Trump and plotted to remove him via the 25th Amendment, told the audience that government transparency isn’t always advisable.
“There’s a knee-jerk reaction to suggest we should be transparent about we do in government,” Rosenstein said. “But there are a lot of reasons not to be transparent about what we do in government.”
Like secretly plotting to remove the president of the united states? Or writing a scope memo that is still hidden from lawmakers and oversight that gives a rogue prosecutor (Mueller) permission to go on a fishing expedition and destroy Trump’s associates on process crimes?
“The guidance I always gave my prosecutors and the agents I worked with during my tenure on the front lines of law enforcement were if we aren’t prepared to prove our case beyond a reasonable doubt in court,” Rosenstein said, “then we have no business making allegations against American citizens.”

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) ripped dirty Rosenstein on Monday.
“Maybe he can tell us why he suggested wearing a wire to record the Commander in Chief and invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the President from office,” Jim Jordan said.
“Where was the ‘Rule of Law’ when he was busy plotting?” Jordan added.

On Monday, Reps. Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan sent a letter to Rep. Cummings asking him to add DAG Rosenstein to publicly testify at Michael Cohen’s hearing.
Rod Rosenstein should be in prison for plotting a coup against President Trump via the 25th Amendment, not giving lectures on the ‘rule of law.’
