Rosenstein Testimony to be Held in SCIF – Transcribed Interview Will Have Redactions
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will face lawmakers on Wednesday for a closed-door interview about his plot to wear a wire and oust Trump from office.
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte announced Thursday that Rosenstein will appear on Capitol Hill October 24th for a closed-door, transcribed interview.
According to the House Judiciary announcement, only 4 members from the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees will be present:
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) announced Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will appear on October 24, 2018, for a transcribed interview conducted by Chairmen Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy and Ranking Members Jerry Nadler and Elijah Cummings.
Rosenstein is calling the shots and demanded his interview be held in a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) with multiple Republican lawmakers excluded.
Catherine Herridge reported Monday that Rosenstein’s transcribed interview will be withheld from the public for a prolonged period of time because it must be reviewed by the intelligence community before it is released.
When Rosenstein’s interview is finally released to the public, it will have redactions.
Well isn’t that convenient.
Reps. Meadows and Gaetz lashed out at the restrictive guidelines put in place for Rosenstein’s testimony.
“This is no way to conduct oversight,” Congressman Gaetz said.
