‘Pure insanity’: See top Trump DOJ official’s response to election probe request

 

New emails from Justice Department and White House officials show how President Donald Trump's allies pressured then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to consider false and outlandish allegations that the 2020 election had been stolen at the same time that Rosen was being elevated to lead the Justice Department in December 2020.
The emails show how Trump's White House assistant, chief of staff and other allies pressured the Justice Department to investigate claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election — and how Trump directed allies to push Rosen to join the legal effort to challenge the election result, according to a batch of emails released by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday.
The documents also offer a window into how Rosen dealt with the political pressure coming from the White House.
Trump's campaign to pressure the Justice Department was occurring as he was replacing Attorney General William Barr — who had publicly said there wasn't evidence of widespread voter fraud — with Rosen, the emails show.

    1. “I’m like, a very smart person”

      – Donald “The J in Donald J. Trump stands for jenius” Trump

    2. @ApeHead Smart people that I know like to hang out with other smart people, because frankly, it’s much more stimulating. And yet what does Trump say publicly? “I love the poorly educated”

    3. Here is a good laugh from The office of 45. “I will be reinstated to the presidency by August. “

  1. Hard to believe that America had a fascist in charge for four years and 76 million people thought that was okay

    1. Lol, the real fascist is currently squatting in the peoples house but you all are to stupid to realize it.

    2. Are we this brain washed? or do we not know what a fascist means. Seriously go and look up the word fascist.

    3. @Delaware HistoryThe 14 Characteristics of Fascism
      1.Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
      Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.
      2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
      Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
      3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
      The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.
      4. Supremacy of the Military
      Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.
      5. Rampant Sexism
      The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and anti-gay legislation and national policy.
      6. Controlled Mass Media
      Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.
      7. Obsession with National Security
      Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
      8. Religion and Government are Intertwined
      Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.
      9. Corporate Power is Protected
      The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
      10. Labor Power is Suppressed
      Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.
      11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
      Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.
      12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment
      Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
      13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
      Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
      14. Fraudulent Elections
      Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections

  2. It’s not madness its total disrespect for truth, country, democracy and fellow citizens… its absolut disrespect, your life do not worth a dime for them.

    1. @J W That instant brights biggest problem. You set yourself up to defend lies and liars with lunacy, willful ignorance, deflection and lies of your own. You allow people who don’t deserve the misguided loyalty, to repeat your character and credibility. They don’t care about you. They are using you and you are letting them. They would never do for you, what you are doing for them now.

    2. @J W do you see that you are the one with the problem? You need help. I feel bad for your family that they have to be around this kind of thinking.

    1. @Thomas Krohn I agree. Even after being reported the post comes right back. YouTube is garbage.

    2. @Elaine Barker – It’s not @Delaware History’s job to do better for all Americans. Everyone needs to take responsibility for their own well being. So unfortunately you’re the one that’s silly and immature. Get off commenting and go get a real job. Both will improve your well being.

    1. @Derf Right, that’s what an adult looks like. Now look back at Trump….yep, a crazy toddler.

  3. the problem is that they continue to be grasped by changing the laws in the states and continue without suffering the consequences

    1. @James Rick whatever you have to think to not cry yourself to sleep at night snowflake.

  4. Every Trump accusation is an admission of his own traitorous administration’s dirty deeds.

    1. @Thomas Head No Thomas. I am massively informed with decades of experience in the REAL world. sorry cupcake. Biden is the big lie and the insurrection. All the world knows and ARIZONA will show…….ltr paid troll.

  5. HATS OFF TO ROSEN FOR HOLDING THE LINE, HE IS A TRUE HERO, AMONG A PACK OF COYOTES WEARING DISGUISES.

    1. He knows that he couldn’t possibly get away with any shenanigans after just being put in power for a week or two. Saving his own carcass.

  7. I’m afraid we’re going to be hearing about the former guys corruption for a long long long time

  8. I know the MAGA folk out there will agree with me that one of the things that “makes America great” is that it’s a democracy. Right?

  9. I think as more time passes and more revelations come out, we will see just how truly “insane” the Trump era was. I have a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg…

  10. Trump: “Could you imagine if I lose, my whole life what am I going to do?”
    Cellmate: “Honey, you’re sleep walking again, come back to bed.”
