Rod Rosenstein just got his hat handed to him by Ohio Gop Rep Jim Jordan and it was a sight to behold.
On live TV, Jordan and other members of the GOP went after the hapless and in over his head Rosenstein for what he is and for what he is not doing with their document requests.
Look, America needs answers and as Trey Gowdy said:
Gowdy tells Rosenstein and Wray to "finish it the hell up because this country is being torn apart."

Correct but Jim Jordan got the last word with a blistering takedown of Rod.
“Why are you keeping information from Congress?” Jordan asked.
“It is not accurate, sir,” Rosenstein said.
“We have caught you hiding information,” Jordan countered.
Rep. Jim Jordan then asked Rosenstein if he threatened to “subpoena staffers calls and emails?”
“No, sir, and there’s no way to subpoena phone calls,” Rosenstein said.
“Who are we supposed to believe, staff members who we’ve worked with who’ve never misled us or you guys who’ve we caught hiding information from us, who tell a witness not to answer our questions, who are we supposed to believe?” Jordan shot back.
“Thank for you making it clear it’s not personal, Mr. Jordan,” Rosenstein replied, sarcastically.
“You should believe me because I’m telling the truth and I’m under oath. If you want to put somebody under oath, and they have something different to say, I’d be happy to respond,” Rosenstein added.
Rod Rosenstein skillfully SMACKS DOWN Rep. Jim Jordan in a cinematic way…
“There’s no way to subpoena phone calls.”
