Reports: Jeffrey Rosen to be nominated to be deputy attorney general

Several legitimate news outlets, including Bloomberg (below), are reporting Transportation Deputy Secretary Jeffrey Rosen will be nominated to replace Rod Rosenstein. Bloomberg said Rosen was Atty. Gen. Barr’s choice.

Maybe it’s no surprise that Rosen has no Justice Department experience. All the best.

Hey look, another Trump Toady. The Swamp
keeps getting deeper.

Notice how they don’t say “Drain the Swamp” anymore?

You must have missed this part.

Maybe it’s no surprise that Rosen has no Justice Department experience. All the best.

The swamp will take many years to drain. Comey, Rosenstein, Strzok, Page, McCabe and many others have all circled the drain. It’s slow, but it is draining. :blush:

From wikipedia:

Jeffrey Rosen (born February 13, 1964)[1] is an American academic and commentator on legal affairs. A legal historian, David Garrow, called him “the nation’s most widely read and influential legal commentator.”[2] Rosen is the author of two biographies on famous American judges titled William Howard Taft: The American Presidents Series: The 27th President, 1909-1913, and Louis D. Brandeis: American Prophet.

Since 2013, he has served as the President and CEO of the National Constitution Center, in Philadelphia.

He graduated as valedictorian from the Dalton School (1982), summa cum laude from Harvard University in English Literature and Government (1986) and was a Marshall Scholar at Balliol College, Oxford in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (1988) from which he received a second bachelor’s degree. He then received his Juris Doctor degree from Yale Law School (1991) and then he served as law clerk to Chief Judge Abner Mikva of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.[3][4]


He is a professor of law at the Law School of George Washington University in Washington, DC, and was the commentator on legal affairs for The New Republic from 1992 to 2014. He then joined The Atlantic, as a contributing editor.[5] Rosen is a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, where he speaks and writes about technology and the future of democracy.[6] He often appears as a guest on National Public Radio. He was a staff writer at the New Yorker,[7] and he is a frequent contributor to the New York Times Magazine.[8]

The Best People. Yeah, right. Where does Trump get these clowns.

Trump IS the swamp. Appointing an inexperienced person to an important position is just more par for Trump’s course, of course. It works out so well, as evidenced by the admin’s track record of enormous turnover at senior positions. Over / under on how long this guy lasts?

Did you read the article? He’s a Swamp Thing. He just lives in a different part of the swamp. Now he’s coming over to run a part of the swamp with which he’s completely unfamiliar. Ladies and gentlemen, your executive branch in action!

Seems like a fine choice to me. Mr. Barr is a very intelligent man. I’m sure he had a good reason for this selection. Nothing in his background after a cursory review gives me pause.

Oh… now conservatives love liberal college elitists…

So what you’re saying is he’s never had any real world experience.
