The Hill reports:
Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. said he thinks Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray “deceived” President Trump into appointing them.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) on Saturday said in response to the evangelical’s tweet that the people who decided not to prosecute those listed by Falwell Jr. were Sessions, Rosenstein and Wray. He also pointed out that each of the three were Republicans, nominated by Trump and confirmed by GOP controlled Senate.
“Yep and I think they deceived Donald Trump into appointing them,” Falwell Jr. said in response on Twitter on Sunday. “They should rot in the same jail,” Falwell Jr., one of the president’s most ardent evangelical supporters, added.
Are there any grownups w/ integrity left in the DOJ? When I was a kid, I watched Repubs join Dems to force Nixon out. Now Dems won’t join Repubs to lock up Comey, Lynch, Ohr, Rosenstein, Strzok, @HillaryClinton, @BarackObama & maybe even @jeffsessions despite damning evidence!
