Politcal hack Rosenstein orders 100s of prosecutors to scrutinize Kavanaugh

In Unprecedented Move, Rosenstein Asks 100s Of Prosecutors To Review SCOTUS Pick's Records

In a somewhat unprecedented move, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has asked the offices of all 93 U.S. attorneys to each provide up to three federal prosecutors to assist the Justice Department in reviewing government records of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Even The New York Times admits this move is "an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement."

While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide.

Mr. Rosenstein’s email, which had the subject line “Personal Message to U.S. Attorneys From the Deputy A.G.,” included the sentence, “We need your help in connection with President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court.”

Former law enforcement officials told the Times that Rosenstein's request is troubling.
"It’s flat-out wrong to have career federal prosecutors engaged in a political process like the vetting of a Supreme Court nominee. It takes them away from the mission they’re supposed to be fulfilling, which is effective criminal justice enforcement," Christopher Hunter, a former F.B.I. agent and federal prosecutor for almost 11 years, told the publication.

But Michael Zubrensky, a former Justice Department lawyer who oversaw the agency's Office of Legal Policy, said Kavanaugh's long paper trail could be the reason for Rosenstein's request.

Sarah Isgur Flores, spokeswoman for the Department of Justice, told the Times that prosecutors have been used in the past to vet Supreme Court nominees. "[T]he scope of the production of executive branch documents we’ve been asked for is many, many times as large," she said.
Rosenstein also wrote that he would need the equivalent of 100 full-time attorneys to work on the nominee's confirmation hearing.

As The Hill notes, Kavanaugh previously worked for President George W. Bush's administration, as well as for the investigation led by Kenneth Starr of former President Clinton. He left a lengthy paper trail that Democrats and outside groups opposed to his nomination are likely to search through for arguments against his confirmation.

Rosenstein has faced pressure from congressional Republicans over his role in overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Democrats have raised the Mueller probe in the context of Kavanaugh's nomination, arguing that he should not be confirmed because he could end up making decisions on the probe itself.

This is misleading. Due the the extensive past of Kavanaugh, Rosenstein has the obligation of sorting through what has to be passed on for review and what is deemed "privieledged" info. He is calling in a ton of people to help so they can get Kavanaugh moved onto confirmation.

Rosenstein is actually helping in this case.

Are you guys seriously questioning what was written on Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden?

Wonder why the NYTs thinks it's true.

While Zero Hedge aggregated this story, it came from the NY Times.

While I don’t like Rosenstein, I believe he’s requesting help to deal with the unprecedented amount of documentation involving Kavanaugh. I don’t think a nominee has had this much paper trail behind them. The massive paper trail is mentioned 3-4 times in the article.

...Former Justice Department officials told CNN the concept of using career prosecutors to assist on a highly political nomination may seem "odd" at first glance, but the Office of Legal Policy at the Justice Department, which is supervising the project, has always assisted with nominations and is composed of mostly career attorneys. While the individual 93 US attorneys leading each office are political appointees, the vast majority of attorneys who work at the Justice Department across the US are in career positions.

An official of the George W. Bush Library has identified over a million documents concerning Kavanaugh that could potentially be responsive to document requests. "We have also identified approximately 429,870 pages and 667,824 electronic files of potentially responsive records that must be processed," Shannon Jarrett of the George W. Bush Library and Museum said in a letter last April to Gabe Roth, who has made a request on behalf of his group, Fix the Court.

"Nothing about the review is political -- it's a document production with redactions," said a Justice official. A second source said this is the reality of a nominee who has more government documents than any other prior nominee, given he has spent his entire career in public service...

So what's the problem?
