Special Counsel Robert Mueller interviewed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The questioning happened over the summer. Muller was seeking information about the President’s decision to remove James Comey from his position at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The information was confirmed by a person briefed on the meeting.
Sources say that this video took place two to three months ago. The Deputy Attorney General kept overseeing the Russia probe despite his role in the firing of Comey. He faced harsh criticism, and people demanded that he leaves the investigation. It’s more than clear that Robert Mueller won’t let things flow naturally.
The spokesman for Robert Mueller didn’t offer any information about the interview, but nothing can beat the fact that it really happened.
The Justice Department comment about the interview either. They confirmed Rosenstein’s role at the department, noting that he will still be part of the probe. “As the Deputy Attorney General has said numerous times, if there comes a time when he needs to recuse, he will. However, nothing has changed,” the Department of Justice spokesman Ian Prior said.
The Russia probe has already reached a higher level, and Robert Mueller keeps expanding his team. New prosecutors join the Russia probe team on a daily basis. It’s more than clear that the special counsel will get the best of them all.
The team will try to determine the possibility that President Donald Trump obstructed justice. The whole probe thing is getting more serious with every day that goes by.
Rod Rosenstein had a central role in the events. He wrote the memo that explained Comey’s firing. He confirmed that the FBI director was fired due to his unconventional approach to the Hillary Clinton mail probe. White House officials said that President Trump used the memo to fire Comey. However, President Trump denied that possibility. He said that the memo wasn’t the core of his decision.
What do you think about this? Do you think President Trump made a mistake when he decided to fire Comey? What will happen next? Will Robert Mueller try to dig deeper?
