Deputy AG Rosenstein Blasts Obama, James Comey Over Russia Probe

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein blasts the former Obama administration and former FBI Director James Comey for their roles within the nearly two-year Russia probe.

Rosenstein criticized Obama during a private dinner on Thursday in New York slamming the former president for misleading the public on Russian hacking efforts during the 2016 election.

The deputy attorney general blasted him for choosing not to “publicize the full story” to the American people.

Rosenstein continued by slamming Comey for disclosing to lawmakers the counterintelligence probe regarding Russian collusion could “result in criminal charges.”

Rosenstein also defended his own handling of the investigation and his behavior throughout the process.

The deputy attorney general’s remarks come as President Trump has repeatedly called for further inquiry into the suspected bias at the Department of Justice amid the Russia investigation.

This comes after texts surfaced between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and his lover Lisa Page which indicated the pair were targeting people within the Trump administration they could “develop for potential relationships.”

The duo have been scrutinized in the past for indicating animosity toward President Trump while still being involved in what the president has called a partisan investigation.

President Trump since slammed the recent texts between Strzok and Page calling the remarks “disconcerting” and suggested “they were trying to infiltrate the administration.”
