Big League Politics reports:
Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein’s wife Lisa Barsoomian represented then-President Bill Clinton in a 1998-99 civil case in federal court.
Rod Rosenstein worked as a Whitewater prosecutor. In this role, he was in charge of the “FBI Travel Office” case, in which it was found that the Clinton White House illegally seized FBI files from White House travel office employees, including the Clintons’ travel director.
Rosenstein interrogated Hillary Clinton on January 14, 1998, and was seen as responsible for clearing her of potential charges in the case. By that time, Rosenstein had already been picked to work for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland in the Clinton administration.
LIMBAUGH: “Rod Rosenstein, his wife, represented Bill Clinton shortly after Rosenstein cleared Hillary as a prosecutor. Wait a minute. It turns out that Rosenstein worked as a Whitewater prosecutor. This guy was on the prosecution team of Whitewater, which of course found the Clintons had done nothing. Rosenstein’s wife then represented Bill Clinton shortly after Rod Rosenstein cleared Hillary from the Whitewater thing. Rosenstein’s wife is Lisa Barsoomian and she then represented then-President Bill Clinton in a 1998-1999 civil case in federal court.”
