ROSENSTEIN: FBI Leaked ‘Classified Evidence’ In Russia Probe to Lawmakers
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein spoke at an Armenian Bar Association gathering Thursday night, where dropped bombshell information related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) handling of the Russian “collusion” probe.
“The FBI disclosed classified evidence about the investigation to ranking legislators and their staffers,” he said. “Someone selectively leaked details to the news media.”
And there you have it. The Deputy Attorney General admitted that the FBI illegally leaked classified intel to lawmakers, which then ended up in the hands of the press. The goal was obvious – burn President Donald J. Trump in the court of public opinion.
When Trump was criticizing the FBI brass over its handling of the probe, the fake news media attacked him, attempting to make him look like he was subverting the rule of law. As it turns out, Trump was right all along. The feds were, indeed, working against him.
Rosenstein also criticized the Obama administration’s handling of the investigation.
“Some critical decisions about the Russia investigation were made before I got there,” Rosenstein said. “The previous Administration chose not to publicize the full story about Russian computer hackers and social media trolls, and how they relate to a broader strategy to undermine America.”
So, the previous administration knew that social media trolls were involved in attempts to interfere with American elections. It did nothing to stop such attempts. Instead, it let Trump take the fall, setting him to look like a Russian stooge.
