Rosenstein to Congress: My Memo Didn’t Tell Trump To Fire Comey

E-mail Print PDF

Rod RodneyDeputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein delivered a stunning rebuke of fired FBI Director James Comey to members of Congress this week—arguing he undermined public confidence in the FBI and damaged the Justice Department.

“In one of my first meetings with then-Senator Jeff Sessions last winter, we discussed the need for new leadership at the FBI,” Rosenstein said, according to prepared remarks released by the Justice Department. “Among the concerns that I recall were to restore the credibility of the FBI, respect the established authority of the Department of Justice, limit public statements and eliminate leaks.”

Rosenstein delivered these remarks on Thursday in a private meeting with the members of the Senate, and again on Friday in a private meeting with the House. He has drawn excoriating criticism over the last week for writing a memo that the White House used to defend President Donald Trump’s firing of Comey.
