    I think Rosenstein is going to turn out to be one of the good guys despite the assertions in this piece. I think he did what he needed to do in order to remain in a position to appoint, and protect, Mueller. He’s clearly smart enough to realize that the memo that he wrote was ridiculous. I think he was also well aware that Comey was going to be fired regardless and that this memo may end up helping to build an obstruction case against Trump and would allow for the establishment of the special counsel investigation.

    The authors of this piece are entitled to their opinion. However, I think Rosenstein made the best of a bad situation and, in doing so, gave us the Mueller investigation. His actions are less puzzling if he’s actually an ally of James Comey who is trying to stay in Trump’s good graces to remain at the head of the Russia investigation. In essence, he managed to get these idiots to conspire to fire the FBI director in order to impede a federal investigation and then used that as cause to appoint Mueller. He’s not recusing himself because he is trying desperately to protect the investigation. The reason this is so confusing for everyone is because we so rarely see true patriots put their country before their own personal interests and careers.

    • That’s the best defense of Rosenstein I’ve seen to date. But there is much to say about the title to this page: “WTF Is Wrong With All Of Trump’s Lawyers?!” One thing Trump and Insurance Defense lawyers have in common is that in their own worlds they play a “no-rules” game. The lawyers at the DOJ and FBI are used to playing a variety of “rule bending” or “rule interpreting game,” but not throw out the rules and do whatever the fuck you want to do, as if it’s an organized crime syndicate. Trump runs the place by criminal fiat and since the lawyers are scared shitless of him, instead of resigning, they engage in bizarre conduct which makes no ethical or lawful sense. This: What’s wrong with them? The same thing that’s wring with the White House staff and Cabinet members. They all have stories they tell themselves why it’s more important to stay and save the country and be complicit rather than resigning.

    There is no way Trump can squeeze his way out of this one. You’ve got him now, H-man!

  3. So, when you read the headlines you might think that Uttam Dhillon must be a three year lawyer who got his White House job via a recommendation by Ivanka’s chief publicist’s first cousin. Perhaps, you might conclude that Uttam Dhillon was way over his head but in an effort to protect the Presidential Dummy from his own lunacy of firing an FBI Director that was investigating him and was known to be loved by everyone, so allegedly withheld critical information. Well, it appears he’s not a three year and in the end he certainly had the right idea.

    According to Bloomberg, prior to his taking his seat at the National Lunatic Asylum, now located at the White House, he was a Partner at Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl**, where Dhillon used his more than two decades of experience as a federal prosecutor, civil litigator and high-level government attorney to augment the firm’s federal civil litigation, appellate, government and corporate investigations, and federal criminal defense practices. Prior to Fitzpatrick Hagood, Dhillon held senior-level positions in Washington, D.C. where he played leading roles in shaping U.S. law enforcement policy in both the executive and legislative branches. In 2006, President George W. Bush appointed Mr. Dhillon to Head the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Counternarcotics Enforcement where he worked closely with other federal agencies to coordinate the federal government’s anti-drug and anti-terrorism efforts. Prior to that, Mr. Dhillon served as an Associate Deputy Attorney General in the United States Department of Justice where he led the development of the Department’s anti-gang efforts as chair of the Attorney General’s Anti-Gang Coordination Committee, developed policies and procedures for resolving federal law enforcement jurisdictional conflicts over terrorist-related explosives investigations, served as a Member of the Attorney General’s Review Committee on Capital Cases, and was appointed an Executive Director of the President’s Board on Safeguarding Americans’ Civil Liberties. Prior to joining the Department of Justice, Mr. Dhillon served as Chief Counsel for the House of Representatives Select Committee on Homeland Security. Dhillon also served as the Policy Director for the House Policy Committee. Prior to working in Washington, D.C., Mr. Dhillon served as an Assistant United States Attorney in Los Angeles where he directed complex investigations of major narcotics trafficking organizations and gangs. Mr. Dhillon graduated from Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley in 1987. He earned a Master of Arts degree in psychology from the University of California, San Diego in 1984 and a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from California State University, Sacramento in 1982. He is a Member of the State Bar of California, the District of Columbia Bar, all District Courts of California, and the Fourth and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeals.

    He’s no Archibald Cox, but he’s no Jay Alan Sekulow or John Dowd either. But he will be looking for another job shortly.
