Ironically the “blue lives” party has some issues with law enforcement. President Trump has fired two high ranking FBI employees and taken numerous shots at their and the agency’s credibility.
The FBI has fired right back at both the President and the GOP. Part of the reason, Trump detests Sessions is because despite Session’s faults he does not want to tangle with law enforcement. Session’s firm boundary with law enforcement is at the crux of his issues with the president.
There is now a new chapter to this open animosity:
“Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s ongoing battle with House Republicans reached new heights Tuesday, as the No. 2 senior leader of the Justice Department plans to call on the House to investigate its own committee staff.
Justice Department officials dispute the recounting of the closed-door meeting detailed in the story, and Rosenstein now plans to “request that the House general counsel conduct an internal investigation of these Congressional staffers’ conduct” when he returns from a foreign trip this week, a Justice Department official said.”
At some point either in 2020 or 2024, Trump will be gone. Where will that leave the GOP with the FBI? Will liberals start wearing shirts that say G men lives matter?
Welcome to Wednesday!
