Republicans appear to have found a winning argument. The Inspector General (IG) for the Department of Justice (DOJ) does not have access to all relevant witnesses in his investigation. Consequently, calls for a special counsel to investigate FISA abuses are growing.

Here is Gowdy discussing why he changed his mind:

Even Rep. Peter King (R-NY), who is more establishment, is calling for one. Note that like Gowdy, King reasons that the DOJ cannot investigate itself:

Based on that very sound argument, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is disqualified. He cannot be part of the process because he’s a party to the crimes.

Merely appointing a Special Counsel is not enough. The person chosen – as well as his or her deputies – is even more important.

Deputy AG is a Co-Conspirator

For example, in a letter written by two House Committee Chairmen that calls for a Special Counsel, they called on one of the co-conspirators to appoint that Special Counsel. That co-conspirator is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Thanks to a memo penned by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), we now know that Rosenstein signed one or more of the FISA applications in question. These applications for warrants to spy on Trump campaign officials and associates were based on a bogus dossier compiled by Christopher Steele. Rosenstein was in on it. As such, he is in no position to appoint a neutral party charged with prosecuting him.


Here is an excerpt from the Nunes memo from February 2nd:

Nunes Memo Implicates Rosenstein as co-Conspirator in Watergate 2.0

Goodlatte and Gowdy are short-circuiting their own efforts. As a result, the process is setup to fail.

Moreover, Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate Trump collusion with Russia. As a result, Rosenstein exhibited extreme bias. Most noteworthy is that Rosenstein did precisely what a guilty party would do. He attempted to cover-up the truth as evidenced by who he appointed. He chose a conflicted and compromised former FBI Director. Mueller then stacked his team with pro-Hillary and pro-Obama Democrats.

It seems like Mueller is dirty, guilty of his own crimes. As such, he certainly has skin in the game being played to let off all the players, because he is one.

Second Special Counsel AND His or Her Team

Rosenstein had no business appointing Mueller as Special Counsel. From his role in shutting down Operation Green Quest in 2003 to his role in the Uranium One scandal, Mueller is very dirty. Rosenstein not only knows this. He needed someone like Mueller to protect him; that is why he gave Mueller the job.

And that is why Mueller stacked his team with hitmen for Obama and Hillary.

Again, a second Special Counsel is demonstrably necessary. However, so too is Rosenstein not being part of the process. His role as a co-conspirator, coupled with what he created with the first Special Counsel disqualifies him from being anywhere near the decision-making process.

We’ve Been here Before

This is not new. In 1994, Kenneth Starr was the Special Counsel that investigated the death of Vince Foster. Starr was the Republican who Democrats could point to that proved the investigation was non-partisan. Unfortunately, Starr was unwilling to follow the evidence and appointed a far left-wing Democrat to run the investigation (Mark Tuohey). Starr’s staff was stacked with Democrats interested in protecting the Clintons.

Last year, Rosenstein appointed Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate Trump. Like Starr, Mueller is a Republican who Democrats point to as evidence the investigation is non-partisan. Also like Starr, Mueller is a Republican. He too appointed a far left-wing Democrat (Andrew Weissmann) as his deputy. Moreover, he stacked his team with players fighting for Hillary and Obama, just as Starr did with his team.

The fix was in both times.

That’s not all.

Benghazi Committee Compromised

In 2014, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) did the Congressional equivalent to what Goodlatte and Gowdy are asking Sessions and Rosenstein to do. Pressure to form a Special Committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks mounted.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (L) and Benghazi Executive Director Philip Kiko (R)

Boehner ultimately relented and chose Gowdy as the Chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. As was the case with Starr and Mueller, Gowdy was the Republican who was supposed to instill confidence that something would be done.

Unfortunately, a man named Philip Kiko was to Gowdy what Tuohey was to Starr and what Weissmann is to Mueller. As the Executive Director, Kiko made sure the investigation didn’t dig too deep. Kiko has done work for the ACLU and Muslim Brotherhood front, Muslim Advocates.

The Benghazi investigation morphed into the Hillary email scandal. The Benghazi committee wrapped up its work and handed off the new scandal to Mueller’s successor at the FBI, James Comey.

Comey covered it all up and let Hillary off.

Time to Learn from Recent History

The Clintons are the common thread that runs through all of it. Vince Foster, Trump / Russia, Benghazi, and the email server scandal. In each case, the fix was in before any investigation started.

In the case of the FISA abuse scandal, the rationale laid out by Goodlatte and Gowdy is very sound. As a result, a second Special Counsel is indeed necessary.

Moreover, so too is the need for an honest broker. Of all people, Gowdy should know this.

However, the decision by both men to include Rosenstein in the letter calling for a second Special Counsel was wrong. Rosenstein has proven he should be nowhere near this decision.

Goodlatte and Gowdy are demonstrating they haven’t learned from recent history.
