Rep Louie Gohmert blasted Rosenstein for signing a FISA application to spy on Trump without reading it as well as his claims of ignorance of Bruce Ohr’s treasonous…
Rep Louie Gohmert isn’t about to let Rod Rosenstein get away with playing dumb or acting like he isn’t intimately involved in the shenanigans going on at DOJ. He beings his questioning of the crooked deputy AG by noting his attempts in response to other members’ questions to put the blame elsewhere by claiming it was before his time or an action by an underling.
Gohmert points out for Rodenstein that in earlier testimony he was emphatic in stating that he’s the head of the Department of Justice, and as such he’s responsible for the actions of his subordinates. He also establishes that Rosenstein approved the FISA application to spy on Carter Page although he didn’t read it. Gohmert notes, “You’re parsing words. So that doesn’t mean you need to read it, in your opinion. Is that correct?”
The exchange deteriorates under the deception of Rosenstein with Gohmert moving on to the topic of Bruce Ohr, asking Rosenstein, “Did you not know that Bruce Ohr was meeting with Christopher Steele, getting information about the dossier and supplying that information to the FBI at the same time his wife Nellie was working for Fusion GPS that was helping Hillary Clinton? Did you not know he was doing that for the FBI?” Gohmert might have asked how a mere reassignment or demotion is sufficient punishment for acts of treason or subversion.
Gohmert finds it difficult to believe that Ohr’s office was just a couple of doors down but he “had no idea he was actually the go-between to get that information.” Gohmert asks, “So when did you find out about that?” Rather than answer the question, Rosenstein runs for the familiar cover of the Inspector General, saying that he’s conducting an investigation, his favored excuse for refusing to answer.
Rosenstein then tap dances back and forth in an explanation of what they talk about and don’t talk about with FISA warrants, as if that somehow has an impact on whether or not he could state when he learned of the coup activities by Ohr, which was the question he’s successfully dodging.
