Daily Caller: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein expressed confidence Monday that Attorney General William Barr will “make the right decision” regarding a report that the special counsel’s office is expected to provide the Department of Justice on the Russia probe.

“I think Attorney General Barr is going to make the right decision. We can trust him to do that. He has a lot of experience with this,” Rosenstein said at an event hosted by the Center for Strategic International Studies.

Barr, who was confirmed to office Feb. 14, has been under pressure to provide Congress with a full copy of a report that special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to complete within the next few weeks on the Russia investigation. Democratic lawmakers have threatened to subpoena the report if Barr decides to withhold the document. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Sunday he will subpoena the report and sue the Justice Department if Barr withholds the document.

“What’s the attorney going to? You’ll have to ask him that question,” said Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller special counsel May 17, 2017.

Rosenstein defended the Justice Department’s policies regarding special prosecutors, which were put in place in 1999 following the Starr investigation of former President Bill Clinton.

The current statute requires the special counsel to provide a report to DOJ, which is in turn required to provide a summary of the investigation’s findings to Congress. The attorney general is allowed to provide the full report to Congress and the public, but is not required to do so.

But Rosenstein did clarify a report would be sent to Congress if Barr blocks any major recommendations made by Mueller.

“If the special counsel proposes to take an action and is overruled by the attorney general … we’re required to report that to the Congress. That’s the structural independence provided in the statute,” said Rosenstein.

    Barr is going to make the right decision? Has anyone researched Barr? I did! No trust from me just another swamper!

  2. I ask only one question about this “FRAUD” of an investigation WHEN are all the investigations and the needed arrest are going, to begin with, all the resistance Criminals by this JUSTICE DEPARTMENT to protect our REPUBLIC from the resistance Socialistic/ Communist TAKEOVER? Why do we have a JUSTICE Department to start with if they are not willing to protect our REPUBLIC and bring these “POLITICAL CRIMINALS” to justice as they so rightly deserve? IS the SWAMP this DEEP that we no longer have a real justice system? AMERICA WAKE UP YOU ARE BEING FLEECED by YOUR POLITICAL CRIMINALS every day in more ways than you will ever imagine!

    Who cares what that traitor thinks?Barr should make sure he goes to jail but he won’t. I also know Barr is part of the swamp. During his conformation hearing he said Mueller was an honorable man and had known him for more than 30 years. If that were true Mueller and his hatched man Weizmann that have been doing the dirty, going above and beyond destroying peoples lives using made up crimes shows that he is anything but honorable.
