Protecting President Trump from the Law

Some remarkable moments below from Rod Rosenstein’s testimony on Capitol Hill within the last half hour. It’s an exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan, former head of the so-called “Freedom Caucus,” which happens to be one of the most autocracy-friendly, anti-rule of law groups on Capitol Hill. The exchanges below are wild. They’re likely to take in a lot of journalists. But see them in the light of a broader overarching goal. All of these fights, all of these demands, this whole storm is part of a larger effort: defending President Trump from whatever Robert Mueller may find about what he, his associates and his family did. This could not be more important.
