Schmidt and Adam Goldman New York Times June 29, 2018 WASHINGTON — In the days after FBI Director James B. Comey was fired last year, the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, repeatedly expressed anger about how the White House used him to rationalize the firing, saying the experience damaged his reputation, according to four people familiar with his outbursts.In public, Rosenstein has shown no hint that he had second thoughts about his role — writing a memo about Comey’s performance that the White House used to justify firing him. “I wrote it. I believe it. I stand by it,” Rosenstein told Congress last year.But in meetings with law enforcement officials in the chaotic days immediately after Comey’s dismissal, and in subsequent conversations with colleagues and friends, Rosenstein appeared conflicted, … [Read more...] about ‘Shaken’ Rosenstein felt used by White House in Comey firing

Leonnig and Robert Costa The Washington Post June 16, 2018 WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump’s lawyers and special counsel Robert Mueller are hurtling toward a showdown over a yearlong investigation into the president’s conduct, with Mueller pushing to write up his findings by summer’s end and Trump’s lawyers strategizing how to rebut a report that could spur impeachment hearings.The confrontation is coming to a head as Trump and his allies ratchet up their attacks on the special counsel probe, seizing on a report released Thursday by the Justice Department’s inspector general that castigated FBI officials for their conduct during the 2016 Hillary Clinton email investigation.Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, said that he planned to use the inspector general’s conclusions to undermine Mueller, … [Read more...] about As Mueller moves to finalize obstruction report, Trump’s allies ready for political battle

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Luke Heimlich, one of the best players in college baseball, and certainly its most controversial, strode to the mound, dusted away a patch of dirt with his cleats and lined up for his first pitch. The home crowd of nearly 3,000, most in orange and black, the colors of Oregon State, cheered, “Luke! Luke! Luke!” They wanted a victory against Arizona State, one of their biggest rivals. More than that, they wanted a performance that would hark back to a different time — the time before anyone had heard that Heimlich, 22, their hero, had pleaded guilty to a felony: sexually molesting his 6-year-old niece when he was 15.
