For John, BLUF: There is still a lot to learn about DOJ in 2016. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Daily Wire, by Mr Ryan Saavedra, 13 April 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
On Friday, a newly-released report revealed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has allegedly told multiple people in private conversations that he did the right thing by firing disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, insisting that the American public does not yet have all the facts about him.For those of you who don't trust The Daily Wire, he is a Link to the original NBC News article.
Rosenstein has reportedly told confidantes that he is prepared to be fired, saying that he is at peace with the likelihood because he knows he did the job with integrity. NBC News reports:Rosenstein has said in recent private conversations that history will prove he did the right thing by firing Comey in May 2017, claiming that the American people do not have all the facts about what led to his decision to write the memo that led to Comey's dismissal, the sources said.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is standing on a windy corner. I wish him well.
And, I am looking forward to reading the DOJ IG Report, " A Report of Investigation of Certain Allegations Relating to Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe",which has gone to the US Congress. The public release does have redactions.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
