HOW ROD ROSENSTEIN IS DEFUSING TRUMP’S #SPYGATE CONSPIRACY
The Justice Department has been quietly countering the president’s narrative with strategic transparency
...Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, in fact, has been quietly de-fanging the president’s most feverish claims for much of the past month, using the partisan battle over the D.O.J.’s transparency to put hard evidence on the table. When Trump and his allies originally demanded that the department turn over documents related to the origins of the Russia probe, Rosenstein, F.B.I. Director Christopher Wray, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats refused, arguing that doing so would jeopardize a critical intelligence source, Republicans seized on that hesitance as further proof that the special counsel’s investigation is a “witch hunt.”
