It was revealed in a court filing that it was Rod Rosenstein who authorized the release of the Strzok-Page texts that have fueled Trump's conspiracy theories.
Nicolle Wallace had a brutal and quick response to Rod Rosenstein's grandstanding and showing his true Trump traitor colors.
President Donald Trump on Monday accused his own deputy attorney general of being a traitor in an unhinged early morning Twitter rant.
Referencing former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s interview with “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Trump lashed out at both McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who suggested wearing a wire to capture audio of Trump obstructing justice.
In the book, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe writes that Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, did not want to write the memo and strongly resisted doing so.
ABC News has just reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is planning to leave his position in the Department of Justice in the next few weeks.
Multiple sources familiar with Rosenstein’s plans told ABC News that the Deputy Attorney General has already told President Trump and other White House officials that he will leave the administration soon after William Barr, Trump‘s nominee for attorney general, takes office following his confirmation by the U.S. Senate.
Donald Trump had one of his longest and most angry Twitter meltdowns ever this morning. He appears to be completely freaking out as he waits for special counsel Robert Mueller’s next move.
The targets of the president’s attacks today include:
Trump thinks that by making a move on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein he will be able to save his Supreme Court nominee by getting him out of the news.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said on Monday he was “deeply concerned” about reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was stepping down, saying his departure would put at risk the federal probe into Russian election activities.
The House Freedom Caucus thought that they were helping Trump by trying to impeach Rod Rosenstein, instead, they made it easier for Trump to be impeached.
Two of Donald Trump’s biggest media supporters, Breitbart and Fox News, both expressed criticism on Wednesday of the House Republicans who filed articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Trump's House Republican defenders are making a new move to shut down the Mueller investigation by impeaching Rod Rosenstein.
House Republicans tried to bully and bait Rod Rosenstein into saying something during his testimony that would give Trump the pretext he needs to fire him and kill the Russia investigation, bt the Deputy Attorney General would not take the bait.
President Donald Trump has often said over the past year that he fired former FBI Director James Comey because of the Russia investigation, but in a tweet today he now claims that is not true.
Seemingly out of the blue Trump tweeted:
Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa seems like a hick from the cornfields but is actually one of the most powerful people in Washington. He is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and may single-handedly be protecting Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein from being fired by President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump would love to fire his Deputy Attorney General but Rod Rosenstein is making it impossible for him to do that by outsmarting him at every turn. On Sunday the president demanded a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into the FBI spy that he thinks was planted in his presidential campaign, so Rosenstein immediately agreed to do it.
Trump's distraction games shouldn't fool anyone as the real story isn't a "spy" but the fact that Trump was informed last year that the FBI was looking into election interference in his campaign by other countries besides Russia.
Rod Rosenstein is nothing if not a survivor. Rumors have swirled around Washington for months that the president would fire Rosenstein — who is Bob Mueller’s boss — but Rosenstein is too smart to let that happen.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) explained that Mueller is not going to indict Trump and hand the decision over to some jury, but instead, he will turn any findings of criminal activity by the president over to the Deputy Attorney General, which makes Rod Rosenstein a very important part of this process.
Rachel Maddow ignored all of the Giuliani/Trump noise, and instead focused on the offensive and defensive maneuvers that Rod Rosenstein is using to beat back House Republican efforts to impeach him.
