DOJ confirms Rosenstein subpoena threat

The FederalistThe Department of Justice confirmed that Rosenstein “put them on notice to retain relevant emails and text messages, and he hopes they did so.” The Justice spokesperson said Rosenstein “never threatened anyone in the room with a criminal investigation,” which hadn’t been claimed, but that the “Deputy Attorney General was making the point—after being threatened with contempt—that as an American citizen charged with the offense of contempt of Congress, he would have the right to defend himself, including requesting production of relevant emails and text messages and calling them as witnesses to demonstrate that their allegations are false.”

Yet in sworn testimony before a congressional committee on June 28, Rosenstein denied that he had ever threatened to obtain the internal e-mails and communications of congressional staffers.

So Rosenstein lied to Congress when he denied making that threat.

Impeach him for it.
