Rosenstein: Comey Routinely ‘Usurped’ the DOJ

A day after addressing the Senate, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein met with the members of the House of Representatives Friday to brief them on the firing of FBI Director James Comey. In his remarks, Rosenstein shared that he was dismayed by Comey’s press conference from last July in which he “usurped” the Department of Justice and revealed findings from the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. He was just as frustrated when Comey again circumvented the DOJ by sending a letter to Congress 11 days before the 2016 election revealing that he was reopening the investigation.

    It’s so hard to tell if he hated Hillary, or was just inept at playing CYA.

    • It’s a mess and nothing will come of this, it’s media hysteria.

    I agree with Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren and the gang.

    Comey just had to go.

      Funny though how they have changed their tune.

    I am rather amazed that someone who incompetent and dishonest was ever appointed head of the FBI. His track record even before now shows this to be the case.
