More #FakeNews: Deputy AG Rosenstein DID NOT Threaten to Quit Over Comey Firing

More Fake News Pushed by Liberal Media—

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told WJLA reporter Michelle Macoluso he DID NOT threaten to quit over James Comey firing.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday night that “Rosenstein threatened to resign after the narrative emerging from the White House on Tuesday evening cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey,” citing an unnamed source close to the White House.

The Washington Post was wrong.
This never happened.

The Washington Post also reported on Wednesday that Comey asked for more funding for the Russia investigation before he was fired.
Today the Acting FBI Director said that was not true either.
Wednesday was not a very good day for the Washington Post.
