Report: Rod Rosenstein Threatened to Subpeona Emails and Phone Records of Congressional Lawmakers and Staffers Seeking Information About the Origins of the Russia Probe

This Man Is About To Get Fucked In The Ass

From Ace of Spades:
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to "subpoena" emails, phone records and other documents from lawmakers and staff on a Republican-led House committee during a tense meeting earlier this year, according to emails reviewed by Fox News documenting the encounter and reflecting what aides described as a "personal attack." 
The emails memorialized a January 2018 closed-door meeting involving senior FBI and Justice Department officials as well as members of the House Intelligence Committee. 
The account claimed Rosenstein threatened to turn the tables on the committee's inquiries regarding the Russia probe. "The DAG [Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein] criticized the Committee for sending our requests in writing and was further critical of the Committee’s request to have DOJ/FBI do the same when responding," the committee's then-senior counsel for counterterrorism Kash Patel wrote to the House Office of General Counsel. "Going so far as to say that if the Committee likes being litigators, then 'we [DOJ] too [are] litigators, and we will subpoena your records and your emails,' referring to HPSCI [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] and Congress overall." 
A second House committee staffer at the meeting backed up Patel's account, writing: 
"Let me just add that watching the Deputy Attorney General launch a sustained personal attack against a congressional staffer in retaliation for vigorous oversight was astonishing and disheartening. ... Also, having the nation’s #1 (for these matters) law enforcement officer threaten to 'subpoena your calls and emails' was downright chilling."
AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

Yep.

Jeff Sessions says he doesn't believe Rosenstein threatened anyone.

How much money is Sessions being paid to lie like this?
