Yesterday, on the 28th of June 2018, I witnessed a horror reality show being played out by the GOP members of the US House Judiciary Committee as they behaved unhinged, unglued, deranged and definitely unprofessional while they hurled questions, insults, barbs as they faced the FBI Director Christopher Wray and the Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein.
This was not a fact finding mission. This was an abuse of power as Mr. Rosenstein was accused of lying under oath, hiding information while deliberately delaying/ slow walking/ not acceding to their demands for volumes of documents. I recall one incident in particular, where Rep. Trey Gowdy snarlingly demanded that the Deputy Assistant Director Rod Rosenstein wrap up this FBI investigation as 18 months was way too long. Mr. Rosenstein has been responsible for the oversight duties for the FBI’s Trump Russia probe being led by the Special Counsel Robert Mueller III. This is the same Rep. Trey Gowdy who chaired a 2 1/2 year investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email handling while she was the US Secretary of State from 2009-2013 with no results.
The FBI Director Christopher Wray and the Assistant Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein acted with total decorum while they withstood what could be describes as an inquisition.
These US House Judiciary Committee GOP members made those republicans in the US House Intelligence Committee headed by the chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) look like amateurs as too how low they could go in attacking the rule of law, the DOJ and the FBI in order to protect their leader at the helm, the republican President Donald J. Trump.
Those on the House Judiciary Committee acted so bonkers to where they signaled to the world that they know just how devastating the FBI’s Trump-Russia inquiry’s findings will be which could do real damage to the Republican Party.

As per the 6/28/18 CBS News report: “Ranking (Democratic) Member Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-New York, slammed Goodlatte for calling an emergency hearing for the IG report’s findings, and not on more pressing issues for the committee to provide oversight on, like the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy at the U.S. border. ”
“Have we conducted any oversight at all on election security? The administration’s failure to protect DREAMERs?” Nadler asked in his remarks. “On all other issues the committee stays silent — on Hillary Clinton’s emails, sound the alarms,” he added. ”
“Nadler said that the committee is wasting “precious time” to “chase Hillary Clinton yet again.”
