Smug Rosenstein Refuses to Tell Rep. DeSantis Whether Anyone in Obama Admin Directed Halper to Approach Trump’s Camp (VIDEO)

DAG Rod Rosenstein smugly laughed at Rep. Ron DeSantis Thursday after the GOP lawmaker asked him why he hasn’t recused himself from the Mueller probe in the face of obvious conflicts of interest.

Rosenstein also refused to tell DeSantis whether anyone in the Obama administration directed the informant, Stefan Halper, to approach the Trump campaign.

FBI Director Christopher Wray and DAG Rod Rosenstein are on Capitol Hill Thursday publicly testifying to House Republicans over the FBI and DOJ’s mishandling of Hillary’s email investigation and Spygate.

House Republicans will also be holding a vote Thursday on a resolution demanding the DOJ comply with requests to turn over classified Trump-Russia docs or face impeachment, contempt.

Rep. DeSantis (R-FL) asked Rosenstein why he hasn’t recused himself from the Mueller investigation even though he’s the one who wrote the memo suggesting Trump fire Comey AND signed a FISA warrant extension on Carter Page–both obvious conflicts of interest.


Rosenstein smugly laughs and says, “If it were appropriate for me to recuse, I’d be more than happy to do so and let someone else handle this. But it’s my responsibility to do it.”

Rosenstein will not respond to DeSantis on whether anyone in the Obama admin directed Halper to approach the Trump campaign.

DAG Rosenstein will not confirm he read the Carter Page FISA warrant prior to signing off on it.

Rosenstein truly believes he’s above the law. His continued stonewalling and smug attitude towards House oversight is despicable.
