Amazing how all these subpoenas involving Democratic lawmakers could escape the notice of the people in charge, even when they were promoting unqualified hacks to revive cases competent prosecutors thought were devoid of merit:
Ex-top Trump Justice Department official Rod Rosenstein has told people in recent days he was not aware of a subpoena that targeted the data of Democratic members of Congress while he was deputy attorney general, a source familiar with Rosenstein told CNN on Saturday.The attorney general at the time of the Apple subpoena, Jeff Sessions, was recused from all matters related to the Russia probe so a related leak investigation would have fallen under Rosenstein, CNN has reported. Former Attorney General Bill Barr, who took office a year after the subpoena was issued, also said Friday he does not recall discussing a probe of lawmakers.
Barr’s here about two or three times a month, and he’s busy with other real estate deals, and…you know.
Anyway, given Barr’s track record of sterling integritude I think there’s only one possible conclusion:
Yet another Dem "scandal" debunked less than 24 hours later. Will a single hoax-pusher offer a correction?
And before you accuse me of blindly trusting the word of Bill Barr, I am just going on his pristine track record (see: Mueller Report, in which I was completely vindicated) pic.twitter.com/2rUerUs015— (G) #Silenced (L) by (E) Big (M) Tech (@GlemGreenwald) June 11, 2021
Seriously, as E.J. Dionne says the Biden administration needs to start put getting to the bottom of this ahead of the alleged institutional interests of the presidency.
