Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein did not just fall off the turnip truck on the way into town. He has been around the block in DC and he is aware of the dangers that come with appearances on Capitol Hill. That is why he wants to meet with only selected members and behind closed doors. That has the Freedom Caucus in an uproar. They want their turn at bat with the Deputy AG. You know that they are after him over the reported joke about wearing a wire to tape the President. That will make great campaign sound bites for some of them. Here is what is going on.
As Written and Reported By Chuck Ross for the Daily Caller:
Two Republican lawmakers who have led the push to Rod Rosenstein to appear on Capitol Hill are criticizing an agreement that allows the deputy attorney general to testify behind closed doors before a limited number of lawmakers.

“This is just another example of the double standard where there’s one set of rules for us regular folk but a different set if you’re part of the politically connected class,” Jordan told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“There should be NO double standard. Show up and tell the truth under the same conditions as everyone else,” North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows said on Twitter.
Rod Rosenstein declines to show up before Congress and then asks for special treatment. He wants his interview to be private, in a SCIF, with multiple members excluded.
