With the second Nunes House Intelligence Committee memo about to be released the No. 3 ranked DOJ official has precipitously resigned.
Rachel L. Brand, who serves under deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, apparently feared she would be placed in charge of overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
The NY Times is reporting that Brand is worried that Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Trump-Russian collusion Mueller investigation nonsense, is the next to go at Justice, and if/when that happens she would be put in charge. How’s that for a sign of the Mueller investigation being a third rail for people at Justice?
Her resignation is just one of many after the explosive Nunes memo was recently released. That memo revealed numerous DOJ and FBI officials colluding with Hillary Clinton and her 2016 presidential campaign. And it appears to only be the beginning of the unraveling of Obama holdovers who tried to tank Donald Trump’s presidential aspirations and then his presidency.
The now famous Steele dossier, paid for by Hillary Clinton, was used by FBI and DOJ officials to obtain a FISA warrant which ultimately led to the Russia investigation. In short, it appears that Barack Obama allegedly allowed a private citizen, Hillary Clinton, to use the full force and weight of the federal government’s law enforcement and intelligence services to rig the 2016 presidential election, and the clandestine work of the DOJ and FBI against Trump continued even after the election.
The question now is was Rachel Brand involved in the FISA abuse? Sources claim that Brand is leaving the DOJ to go work for a Fortune 500 company, but the timing of leaving her top position is a little suspect at best.
Perhaps Brand fears she will be named in the second Nunes memo, which was promised to focus on abuses of power at the DOJ.
