Republicans to attack Rod Rosenstein as they build their case to go after Robert Mueller

On Wednesday, Republicans will confront Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein with critical evidence that two members of the FBI dared to exchange private messages like normal human beings. Senior F.B.I. officials who helped investigate Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign last year wrote in text messages that Hillary Clinton “just has to win” and described a potential Trump victory as “terrifying,” according to texts released Tuesday night. The messages appear to be extremely mild, compared to what would appear on the average person’s Facebook, and were far from one-sided. Some messages criticized Mrs. Clinton’s team, the Obama administration, Congress and other Democrats.  Actually, the messages reveal that FBI agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page shared one big fear. The two appeared appalled at some of Mr. Trump’s comments during the campaign and feared that he would politicize the F.B.I. So of course, Republicans are going to use that fear to politicize the FBI. They intend to use the private exchange between Strzok and Page as evidence of a “deep state” conspiracy as they beat up on Rosenstein and work toward their major goal: discrediting Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The goal of Republican assaults on Mueller is twofold. One is to so diminish the standing of the former FBI director who Republicans roundly praised a year ago, that the public—or at least the Republican base—will go along if Republicans decide to ignore any results coming from the Trump–Russia investigation.

New polling: 81 percent of Americans, including 67 percent of Republicans, want Dreamers to stay

New polling: 81 percent of Americans, including 67 percent of Republicans, want Dreamers to stay

Yet another poll, this one from Marist, shows that protecting undocumented immigrant youth from deportation should be a no-brainer for Congress. “By an 81-15% margin, Americans support allowing Dreamers to stay in the U.S. and gain legal residency”: 58% of Americans back citizenship (“should be allowed to stay in the United States and become citizens”); 23% back legal status short of citizenship (“should be allowed to stay in the United States and become legal residents but not citizens”) According to Marist, support for Dreamers extends way past party lines, with 92 percent of Democrats, 82 percent of Independents, and 67 percent of Republicans supporting legalization for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. Only a fringe 15 percent (*cough Stephen Miller and Omarosa cough*) support deporting Dreamers.  The polling comes as Congress faces a two-week window to pass the DREAM Act by the end of the year, and both activists and legislators have been calling on Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to act. More than 11,000 DACA recipients have already lost their protections, and 122 more lose their work permits and protection from deportation every single day. “Keeping Dreamers in America—the country they grew up in and the place that is home—is overwhelmingly popular across the country and across the political spectrum,” said America’s Voice leader Frank Sharry. “Why are so many Republicans in Congress and the White House treating this like it’s a controversial issue? It’s not.”

RG3 says he turned down offers from Ravens, Cardinals

Free agent NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III admitted on Wednesday that he actually turned down offers from both the Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens during the offseason.“I had interest in the offseason, it just wasn’t the right fit,” Griffin told Michael Smith and Jemele Hill on SC 6 (h/t Arizona Sports 98.7 FM).”Griffin elaborated specifically as to why the Cardinals were not the right team for him. “In Arizona, the reason it wasn’t a good fit was because Carson (Palmer) was there,” Griffin said. “I was willing to come in and work behind an experienced veteran quarterback who’s done a lot of great things. They had the backup in Stanton and they had also brought in Blaine Gabbert. “Nobody lets four quarterbacks get practice time. That was the issue. It wasn’t the coach.” Had RGIII signed with the Cardinals, that indeed would have made for a crowded quarterbacks room. But in retrospect, nobody anticipated that Palmer would go down with a season-ending injury. If Griffin was on the Cardinals’ roster, i
