The Democrats may still have an ace in the hole and his name is Rod Rosenstein.
In the war to prevent President Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed the de facto attorney general has made the unusual and highly suspicious move of putting over ninety federal prosecutors on the case to pick through every aspect of the respected conservative judge’s life.
Rosenstein’s flagrant abuses of power are something normally not seen in a theoretically free country and more fitting for the old Soviet Union.
He has already unleashed dirty cop Robert “Bob” Mueller with an implicit mandate to manufacture any “evidence” that will aid the Democrats in removing Trump from office and like cancer, Mueller’s unaccountable witch hunt continues to expand by the day.
Now it appears that Kavanaugh will face a similar inquisition.
Rosenstein requested 93 federal prosecutors help vet Brett Kavanaugh: Report https://t.co/2DbSs2aLyn

Via The Washington Examiner, “Rod Rosenstein requests 93 federal prosecutors help vet Brett Kavanaugh: Report”:
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has requested that federal prosecutors help vet President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, a new report says.
Rosenstein requested that the prosecutors examine Kavanaugh’s government documents and asked the 93 United States attorneys to have every office submit several federal prosecutors “who can make this important project a priority for the next several weeks,” the New York Times reports.
The move departs from the norm, as it is standard for Justice Department lawyers to participate in work for Supreme Court nominations, but not prosecutors.
More from The New York Times:
Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide.
But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each office to provide up to three federal prosecutors “who can make this important project a priority for the next several weeks.” Names were to be submitted to Mr. Rosenstein’s office by the end of Wednesday.
Mr. Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh on Monday to replace Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who is retiring. In years of public service — including work for the independent counsel investigation of President Bill Clinton, on the 2000 Florida recount and as a White House aide to George W. Bush — Judge Kavanaugh generated a lengthy paper trail. That had Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, privately expressing concern that it might be used against him in his Senate confirmation hearings.
Mr. Rosenstein’s email, which had the subject line “Personal Message to U.S. Attorneys From the Deputy A.G.,” included the sentence, “We need your help in connection with President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court.”
Former law enforcement officials described Mr. Rosenstein’s directive as a troubling precedent.
It is very disturbing that thanks to Barack Obama’s weaponizing of the Justice Department and FBI that we now live in a country where corrupt political hatchetmen like Rosenstein are able to insert themselves into the process of digging up political dirt on Supreme Court nominees but that’s the butt-ugly truth of it and is more Naziesque than anything that the left/media has blamed on Trump.
And once again, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is as silent as a churchmouse.
