    "Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein just publicly backed Attorney General William Barr’s handling of the Russia investigation in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.

    "His remarks shouldn’t come as a surprise: Rosenstein’s role in overseeing the investigation has been complicated, often oscillating back and forth between enabling the White House and backing Mueller’s probe.

    "Perhaps Comey summarized Rosenstein best when he told Ben Wittes of Lawfare, 'Rod is a survivor… So I have concerns' about his stewardship of the Mueller probe.

    "As Wittes added, 'you don’t get to survive that long across administrations without making compromises.'"

    One key piece of evidence regarding Rosenstein's loyalties in the Mueller investigation is whether or not Rod refused to allow Robert to subpoena Trump's financial documents with Deutsche Bank.

    "David Ignatius reported Rosenstein may have 'blocked' the Mueller investigation from looking into Trump’s finances, preventing a real counter-intelligence investigation into the President.

    • "Ignatius reported that 'One government source speculates that Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, blocked any attempt to compel disclosure of the bank’s Trump file records to avoid getting himself or Mueller fired.'
    • "Trump set a red line around his finances. Ignatius explains, 'Trump was enraged by a December 2017 report that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III had subpoenaed the bank’s records about its dealings with Trump.'
    • "'The red line apparently held.' Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow told Reuters: 'No [Deutsche Bank] subpoena has been issued or received.'"
    There are also questions about Rosenstein's involvement in Mueller's denial of a BuzzFeed News report that Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project.

    Mueller uncharacteristically disputed that story in contrast to consistently refusing to confirm or deny any other story about his investigation.

    Got to love the crazy quilty until proven innocent. Not long ago Mueller was THE MAN. Nothing could stop him from getting to the truth.
    As soon as he handed in his report and Trump was still in office he has become a wimp, a cheat. Someone that should never have been allowed to investigate. He left rocks untouched that obviously we're the right rocks.

    Barr is going to protect his boss. He is not going to turn over the report. He is going to change the report.
    Rosenstine was standing up for Mueller. He made sure that Mueller never got fired. Man he was the guy to look up to. Suddenly now he tried to product Trump. He hamstrung Mueller. All the other crazy ideas that are out.

    The report has not even come out and the left is spinning things like a top. Flip flopping from good to bad.

    Maybe not. Rod is no dummy. He is building a defense. (do they still authorize the death penalty for traitors?)

    If it's true Rosenstein refused to allow Mueller to subpoena Trump's financial records from Deutsche Bank, does that mean no authentic counter-intelligence investigation occurred?

    Barr swore an oath to the US Constitution which means "We the People" are his boss, not some phony billionaire con man with a long history of crony-capitalism.

    If Rosenstein's a traitor, what is Trump?

    Deutsche Bank: Here’s What Maxine Waters Should Be Subpoenaing

    "According to today’s New York Times, Democrats now in charge of the House Intelligence and Financial Services Committees, have issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup, related to the President’s finances and/or Russian money laundering."

    What is Trump afraid of?

    “Rod is a Survivor” - The Moscow Project


    "What role is Rosenstein playing in Barr’s efforts to keep the full Mueller report hidden?

    • In his initial letter to Congress, Barr said he and Rosenstein had worked together on their highly questionable decision to clear Trump of obstruction of justice, a prosecutorial decision Mueller apparently explicitly declined to make and may have intended to leave to Congress.
    • In the lead-up to the end of Mueller’s investigation, Rosenstein made several comments that seem to indicate an openness to redacting damaging information from the report. This includes telling an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that 'there are a lot of reasons not to be transparent about what we do in government” and that the Department of Justice has “no business making allegations against American citizens … if we aren’t prepared to prove our case beyond a reasonable doubt.'"
