The Unconstitutionality of Rod J. Rosenstein

By citing the unconstitutionality of what we’re witnessing, Tadas Klimas does the work that so many conservative commentators should have done a long time ago — here he is writing at American Thinker:

There are no real legal or investigatory justifications for the appointment of a special counsel in relation to the “Russia” matter. Indeed, the main or most unarguable effect of this appointment is not its likely effect upon the 2018 congressional elections, but it is the continued delegitimization of Trump’s administration over the course of the special counsel’s investigation — and what could fairly be called the unconstitutional suppression of the will of the people as expressed in this last presidential election.

As pointed out by professor John C. Eastman, the peculiar nature of the special counsel’s investigation poses grave threats “to our body politic and our liberty more broadly.” According to Eastman, the special prosecutor in essence now possesses a general warrant. As the Supreme Court has stated, “[i]t is familiar history that indiscriminate searches and seizures conducted under the authority of ‘general warrants’ were the immediate evils that motivated the framing and adoption of the Fourth Amendment.”

Eastman continues,

“The special counsel will not track down the details of a crime known to have been committed and determine “who dunnit,” but will scour the personal and business affairs of a select group of people — the President of the United States, members of his family, his business associates, and members of his presidential campaign and transition teams—to see if any crime can be found (or worse, manufactured by luring someone into making a conflicting statement at some point). This is not a proper use of prosecutorial power, but a “witch hunt,” as President Trump himself correctly observed.”

Note that some claim that every American commits several federal offenses a day.
