closevideo Deputy General Prosecutor Rod Rosenstein defended attorney General Bill Barr, dealing with the Müller-report
The Wall-Street-Journal-reporter Sadie Gurman, the Deputy General Prosecutor Rod Rosenstein says called the allegations, the AG Bill Barr is being abused, the Miller report ” completely bizarre.’
Rod Rosenstein, the US deputy attorney general, oversaw the Mueller investigation, spoke publicly on Thursday for the first time since the report was published, a swipe at the Obama administration-real-time response to a Russian Hacker, and his decision “to publish the whole story” for the American people.
Rosenstein, who spoke in New York at the Public officials dinner of the Armenian bar Association, defended his handling of the probe and criticized the former officials in the process. He called in a former FBI Director, James Comey for alerting the Congress on the investigation of the Russian agreement in the amount of the 2016 presidential campaign.
SWALWELL IS NOT CERTAIN TRUMP IS NOT A “RUSSIAN ASSET’
“The FBI more evidence to be classified, given on the examination for the rank of the legislators and their staff,” he said. “Someone selectively leaked details to the news media. The FBI Director [Comey] announced at a congressional hearing that there is a counter-espionage investigations that may be criminal charges. Then, the former FBI Director is claiming that the President is under pressure to close the investigation, and the President denied that the conversation occurred.
“So, that happened,” he joked.
The Obama administration has been criticized for his handling of the Russian intervention. Trump has blamed Obama for not acting quickly enough to stem Russia’s influence in the campaign.
In 2016, NBC News, citing unnamed high-level officials, reported that the Obama administration has not reacted violently, because they do not want to deal with the elections. An official said, the network at the time, “thought she [Hillary Clinton] was going to win, so they were ready to kick the can down the road.”
A reporter for NPR said the Obama administration discussed how the information is processed and decided that Obama should be with Russian President Vladimir Putin privately about the matter.
The Rosenstein speech touched on a lot of topics.
He blasted “the mercenary critic”, the financially by the expression “passionate opinions about each topic, often with little or no information. You are not only an explicit rejection. You start ad-hominem attacks full of truth or morality. You make threats, spread fake stories and even attack their relatives.”
Rosenstein maintains a fragile relationship with trump. Congressional Republicans have also withholding tax, and accused him of documents and are not investigated aggressively enough, what they claim, the political bias within the FBI.
Former FBI General Counsel James Baker, in “closed doors” -testimony before Congress-committees in October of last year, provided in detail on the internal discussions about Rosenstein reported, offer to wear a wire to tape the President in the turbulent days after James Comey, the burn is as FBI Director in may 2017.
Fox News has confirmed that parts of the transcript of the house committees on oversight and the judiciary.
“In my hearing in March 2017, a Republican senator asked me to get involved,” he recalled. “He said: “You are responsible for this [Russia’s] investigation. I want you to look me in the eye and tell me that you do it right, you’ll find it to the end and you report [the result] to the American people.
“I pledge to make it right and take you to the appropriate conclusion. I promise to report all results to the public because the grand jury proceedings investigation ex-parte. It is not our task to render conclusive factual findings. We can only decide whether it is appropriate, criminal charges.”
Rosenstein, will leave his post in two months. He had answered fun with his speech and the question that so many questions on social media, after he stands stoically behind Attorney General William Barr, during the lead-up to the Miller-report-release.
