Liberal Lawyer: Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) Pretty Much Made the Trump White House’s Case in Rosenstein Hearing

Townhall: If there is one senator who is bound to say something stupid, it’s Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI). She’s from deep-blue Hawaii, so she could peddle lies and outright nonsense and not risk losing re-election. And then, there are these moments, where she obviously was confident that former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was going to drop some bombshell about Trump possibly being guilty of obstruction of justice during the investigations into Russian collusion. Well, that didn’t happen. 

Rosenstein did say that there were no secret recording of Trump, there was no wire, and that he was no part of a conspiracy to boot Trump, noting that the president cannot be removed under the 25th Amendment. Fine—he’s a little spotty on whether or not he read the FISA warrants on Carter Page, but that’s a separate matter. Liberal lawyer Jonathan Turley, who is also a law professor at George Washington University, noted, she pretty much made a solid defense…of the Trump administration. One of the best parts was when Hirono thought that 1,000 former DOJ lawyers saying otherwise meant something. Nope. As Rosenstein slapped her down, he noted that the DOJ has legions of lawyers, current and former:

Hirono raised reports that he discussed wearing a wire or using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump.

Rosenstein denied he was involved in any conspiracy against Trump but Hirono cut him off to ask about specific statements.

Rosenstein denied secretly recording President Trump and “never in any way suggested the President could be removed under the 25th Amendment.”

Hirono seems to be making a case for the Administration.  She just prompted Rosenstein to say that he agreed with the view that there was no evidence of obstruction of justice.  She then dug deeper and Rosenstein just said that “he agrees that there was no evidence of a crime” by Trump.

  1. Worse than Biden’s furnace side chats from the basement. I think dems might put a stop to her speaking from the lanai without coaching.

  2. In other news, Project Veritas is going to release tape footage today of inside antifa.

    Expect the usual from the dnc bootlickers in the media. They’ll claim it’s highly edited because we haven’t seen all x amount of hours of the tapes.
    Meanwhile, we have only seen a few minutes of the George Floyd tape.

  3. There are stupid people who make you laugh, and there are stupid people who scare the shit out of you because they have a forum.

    Hirono, AOC, Ilhan, & in my case Turdeau scare the shit out of me!

    Either they do not know the damage they do or they know exactly what they do and are absolutely Evil.

    The latter seems to be the “New Normal”

  4. Feinstein had Rosenstein make the point yesterday that, even though the “Steele Dossier” was used to secure warrants under FISA, it had no bearing on subsequent prosecutions.

    I’m not a lawyer, and don’t play one on the interwebz, but that sounds like an admission of misprision.

    The whole “Deep State” apparatus should be tickled that Treason is no longer a crime.

    izlamo delenda est …

  5. I’m surprised she didn’t yell ‘shut up’ when the sirens, 2 of them, drove by while she was ‘phoning it in.’

    And feinstein should be in jail. Between the 20 some years of having a chainese spy running her office, and the son of her husband’s business partner hacking the congressional computers, she is hardly the person to be on a judicial committee.

  6. “Let us remember that a traitor may betray himself and do good that he does not intend. It can be so, sometimes.”

    “Either they do not know the damage they do or they know exactly what they do and are absolutely Evil.”

    Those aren’t mutually exclusive options. They can be stupid AND evil.

  8. I had never even heard Mazie’s name until the shampeachment hearings. But I have come to despise her in that short time. One of the dumbest partisans in government.

    “…how do these people pass the Bar Exam?…”

    2020 BAR EXAM

    1) Are you a Democrat?
    2) Will you do as the Democrat Party says?
    3) Will you pay dues to the Democrat Party?
    4) Will you disregard, twist, or otherwise distort and lie about the Law if it’s in the Democrat Party’s best interests?

    Answers to all is YES. 100% is passing. If 100%, welcome to the Bar, you may now practice, interpret, and make laws that don’t apply to you or the Party…

  10. SuperNightShade: the above list counts double for Democrat SCOTUS nominations. Reading the Constitution is considered a liability to Leftists.
