Rod Rosenstein says its completely bizarre to say William Barr is trying to mislead people on Mueller report
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended attorney general William Barrs handling of the Mueller report, just days after Barr testified before a House appropriations subcommittee.
Rosenstein said he believed it was strange to say the attorney general was misleading the public on the highly-anticipated report.
Hes being as forthcoming as he can, and so this notion that hes trying to mislead people, I think is just completely bizarre, Mr. Rosenstein told the Wall Street Journal.
It would be one thing if you put out a letter and said, Im not going to give you the report, Rosenstein said. What he said is, Look, its going to take a while to process the report. In the meantime, people really want to know whats in it. Im going to give you the top-line conclusions. Thats all he was trying to do.
The deputy attorney general called on the public to have tremendous confidence in Barr and declined to say how the review of the report was going.
Barr wrote in his letter that Mueller found no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion despite efforts by "Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign." He also said that Mueller had not exonerated President Trump on the issue of obstruction of justice.
Barr said on Tuesday a redacted version of Muellers report will be made public within a week.
Rosenstein, 54, told the Wall Street Journal he hopes to begin a new job toward the end of the summer.

Rosenstein, who said he stayed in his position at the Department of Justice at Barrs request saying, For me, its a real privilege.

Turns out “completely bizarre” and the DNC are one and the same.
Yep, the vision of an orange jumpsuit has Rosenweasel worried....
THEY ARE RUNNING LIKE RATS....rats like Rosenstein and others. Comey, Brennan etc.
Rosenstein is trying to dodge prosecution by helping out William Barr.
After Rosenstein was one of the top five deep-staters sabotaging President Trump. Rottenstein signed at least one phony FISA warrant and maybe more.
Rosenstein has been such a nice guy lately. You don’t suppose he has become a big Trump fan now that he knows the scheme he participated in has failed miserably and people are going to go to jail.
No, he is just trying to save his ...
That and jeh johnson agreeing with PDJT on immigration. Trying to save their own hides IMO.
Why isn’t Rod Rosenstein behind bars???
Lock him up!!
Saw this on another site.
“First to squeal gets the deal.” they are all jockeying for position.
SC hows it going!
Despite the strong winds and the snow two days ago, Spring seems lovelier than usual this year. :^) President Trump wasn't kidding:
Rosenweasel may be ratting everyone out as the jumpsuit is dangled-don’t hatchet your count before he chickens...
If he’s flipping to the winning side that means WE’RE THE WINNING SIDE...
Works for me.
