Lou Dobbs has a few thoughts on “the swamp creatures working against the Trump administration. President Trump, today, took a swipe at the whole special counsel mess.” Dobbs reads the President’s tweet in he points out the absurdity, saying ‘I’m being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.'”
Dobbs points out that “The President is of course exactly right in his characterization of the man who told him to fire Director Comey. That man is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein wrote a May 8th memo that enumerated the reasons cited for the Comey firing.”
Dobbs quotes Rosenstein that memo as stating, “The way the Director handled the conclusion of the [Clinton] email investigation was wrong. As a result the FBI is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges never to repeat them. Having refused to admit his errors, the Director cannot be expected to implement the necessary corrective actions.”
“Rosenstein later defended his memo to Congress,” notes Dobbs, “and he said this, ‘Notwithstanding my personal affection for Director Comey, I thought it was appropriate to seek a new leader.” Dobbs then reminds us, “It was Rosenstein, after all, who then chose Comey friend and former colleague Robert Mueller to be the Special Counsel, which is clearly a breach of the requirements that there be no appearance of Conflict of Interest – any kind, including being colleagues and friends of the appointed Special Counsel.”
Dobbs takes us a little further into Bizarro World, with the report that, “Now, Rosenstein dares to warn us about leaks, urging Americans to exercise caution on left-wing news stories attributed to anonymous officials, which is just about the bulk of their political reporting.”
“I believe the Deputy Attorney General now has only one honorable path,” says Dobbs, “in the mess that he’s helped to create. Rosenstein, I strongly believe, should fire Robert Mueller, and then himself resign as Deputy Attorney General and immediately. That would end this mad, sorry, destructive chapter in the Justice Department and FBI history. And of course it would end the Special Counsel and the distraction that it has become.”
