Rod Rosenstein knows the jig is up slams Comey and Obama in handling of Mueller investigation
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein knows the jig is up. He is a rat running for cover and what rats do is look for others to blame. The DOJ rat that once discussed wire taping Trump and invoking the 25th amendment opened up about Russia and the Obama administration involvement in the coup attempt. (no he did not say coup attempt but that is what he was talking about)
The visual of Rosenstein standing behind William Barr last week looked like a man who has been told he is going to GITMO. Now he is calling out James Comey and the Obama administration for they’re handling of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Rosenstein overnight was speaking at an official State Department event to of all people the Armenian Bar Association. And he reflected on his time in the Justice Department as it is about to end.
“I did pledge to do it right and take it to the appropriate conclusion. I did not promise to report all results to the public because grand jury investigations are ex parte proceedings,” Rosenstein said of Mueller’s report, which found no evidence of collusion between the presidential campaign of Donald Trump and Russia.
“It is not our job to render conclusive factual findings,” he continued. “We just decide whether it is appropriate to file criminal charges.”
Rosenstein then took time to slam James Comey for his role in handling the Russia investigation. President Trump has said repeatedly he did the country a “great service” in firing Comey. And Rosenstein did not disagree.
“The FBI disclosed classified evidence about the investigation to ranking legislators and their staffers. Someone selectively leaked details to the news media. The FBI director [Comey] announced at a congressional hearing that there was a counterintelligence investigation that might result in criminal charges. Then the former FBI director alleged that the president pressured him to close the investigation, and the president denied that the conversation occurred.”
Rosenstein knows the jig is up and he is looking for cover.
