WASHINGTON. The largely Democrat-engineered outrage over President Trump’s weekend summit with Russian President Vlad Putin serves as a smokescreen obscuring potentially more serious developments in the nation’s capital. In contrast, sources on Capitol Hill say House impeachment proceedings are just days away for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Certainly, this pending action stems from the Justice Department’s slow-walking of subpoenaed documents to committees of Congress. It is thought that these documents likely pertain to Deep State operations conducted against then-GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.

Rod Rosenstein’s quiet exoneration of Trump

Yet Rod Rosenstein has been the only Deep State operative who’s consistently stated, if only obliquely, that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the alleged Trump/Russia “collusion” is nothing but a witch hunt.

For example, looking back to last February 16, after Mueller indicted 13 Russians and 3 companies for alleged “meddling” in the 2016 presidential election, Rosenstein said,




“There’s no allegation in the indictment of any effect on the outcome of the election… There is no allegation in this indictment that any American had any knowledge [of or cooperated with Russian conspirators].”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

And when on July 13 Mueller’s second indictment charged 12 Russian GRU intelligence agents with hacking into computers at the Democratic National Committee, Rosenstein pretty much read from his February script,

“There is no allegation in the indictment that any American was a knowing participant in the alleged unlawful activity or knew they were communicating with Russian intelligence officers. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the vote count or changed the outcome of the 2016 election.”

Impeaching the unimpeachable

Looking back, it seems hard to remember that Rod Rosenstein served in the administrations of both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Consequently, it seems a little odd Republicans in Congress want to impeach the only bipartisan, Deep State operative in DOJ. Furthermore, he is the only one who has exonerated Trump and the rest of us (“There is no allegation in the indictment that any American…”) from being mixed up in any way with the alleged college fraternity prank played on the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign by the Ruskies.

Vlad Putin vs. U.S. Deep State and the MSM

Finally, this takes us to Russian President Vlad Putin. After his face-to-face meeting with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, Putin spoke to reporters about his conversation with his U.S. counterpart.

“I had to reiterate things I said several times, including during our personal contacts, that the Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere into internal American affairs including its election process. Any specific material, if such things arise, we are ready to analyze together.”

Trump prompts a media / Deep State meltdown over “Russian collusion”

Subsequently, in response, President Trump said,

“I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.”

This caused a universal mental meltdown among the media’s chattering nabobs.

“Trump Sides with Putin Over US Intelligence,” screamed a headline at fake-news CNN. “Trump, at Putin’s Side, Questions U.S. Intelligence on 2016 Election,” said a headline in the New York Times.



Predictably, CIA Director John Brennan even called Trump’s statement “nothing short of treasonous.

Trump later backpedaled. He shouldn’t have.

It’s important for us to remember that all the hysteria just described occurred despite two key facts:

  • Vlad Putin’s Russia did not alter “the vote count” or change “the outcome of the 2016 election”; and
  • NO American – including President Trump – “was a knowing participant in the alleged unlawful activity or knew they were communicating with Russian intelligence officers.”
It’s a matter of credibility

So, who are we to believe? Vlad Putin or the U.S. Deep State and the dissembling media to whom they leak?

Putin, a former head of the Soviet KGB and a man not at all shy when it comes to dropping toxic polonium into the tea cups of his political enemies, is more than capable of “hacking” America’s easily compromised electoral system. The system, as most of us should know by now, is effortlessly gamed by droves of illegal aliens.

But Rod Rosenstein, notwithstanding Robert Mueller’s silly indictments, says the U.S. electoral system was unscathed by foreign “influence.” That conclusion runs counter to claims made by Deep State actors like the CIA’s (and now CNN’s) hyperventilating John Brennan.

A bag of snakes

Given that Deep State operatives conspired with British agent Christopher Steele, the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, the FBI’s Trump-hating counterintelligence agents, and never-Trumpers like GOP Sen. John McCain, it isn’t all that difficult to believe the murderous Vlad Putin is the only one telling the truth among this festering bag of snakes.

Alone among the Deep State snakes, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, along with Russian President Vladimir Putin, is actually the most believable individual when it comes to addressing the Mueller “Russian collusion” charade.
