Grassley Sends Letter to DOJ Demanding Unredacted Rosenstein Memo Detailing Mueller’s Scope

by Cristina Laila  May 18, 2018 Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to the Justice Department Friday demanding Rosenstein’s unredacted memo detailing Mueller’s scope. In Chairman Grassley’s letter to the DOJ, he noted Mueller’s team had just given Rosenstein’s memo to Judge Ellis therefore the Senate Judiciary Committee should be permitted to review the document. Grassley also criticized the time frame in which the memo was penned by Rosenstein–three months after Mueller was appointed. It’s also important to note that the FBI raided Paul Manafort’s home with guns drawn, several days before Rosenstein wrote his August 2nd memo.

George Soros Throws Tantrum Over Donald Trump

Controversial billionaire and Hillary Clinton donor George Soros threw a massive temper tantrum over Donald Trump on Wednesday, referring to the president-elect as a “would-be dictator.” Soros, an extreme proponent of globalization, wrote in an opinion blog post on Project Syndicate that Trump is a threat to the open society model that he advocates for. “I find the current moment in history very painful,” Soros wrote. “Open societies are in crisis, and various forms of closed societies – from fascist dictatorships to mafia states – are on the rise. How could this happen? The only explanation I can find is that elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations and that this failure led electorates to become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism. Quite simply, many people felt that the elites had stolen their democracy.” Soros took aim at Trump himself, calling him a […] Read More
