Deputy AG Rosenstein Doubles Down on Comey Memo: “I Wrote It, I Believe It. I Stand By It”

(Gateway Pundit) – Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein doubled-down on the memo he wrote that outlined James Comey’s offenses in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s criminal offenses.

FOX News reported:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein firmly stood by the memo he wrote that outlined James Comey’s offenses – and later was cited by the White House to support President Trump’s decision to fire the FBI director – during briefings with Capitol Hill lawmakers, according to remarks obtained by Fox News.

“I wrote it. I believe it. I stand by it,” he said, according to the opening statement provided by senior Justice Department officials. He maintained that Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe was “wrong and unfair.”

The statement was first delivered to Senate lawmakers on Thursday and to House lawmakers during a similar briefing on Friday.

Democratic lawmakers have claimed ever since Comey’s firing that Rosenstein’s memo was used as a mere pretext to can the director.

The liberal media reported this week that Rosenstein promised to quit over the former FBI director’s firing.

This was complete garbage reporting.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told WJLA reporter Michelle Macoluso he DID NOT threaten to quit over James Comey firing.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday night that “Rosenstein threatened to resign after the narrative emerging from the White House on Tuesday evening cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey,” citing an unnamed source close to the White House.

The Washington Post was wrong.

This never happened.
