Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is taking no prisoners. He just spilled the beans on James Comey, and it is devasting. Comey is finished.
Following the report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s that detailed Comey’s mishandling of sensitive and classified material, Rosenstein, who resigned from his post in April, went after Comey on social media.
Rosenstein never mentioned Comey by name, however, the context couldn’t be more clear. He tweeted out a letter he wrote to Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) about the importance of following established FBI and DOJ procedure.
“It is important … to follow established policies and procedures, especially when the stakes are high,” said Rosenstein. “We should be most on guard when we believe that … circumstances justify ignoring … principles respected by our predecessors.”
Additionally, Rosenstein tweeted an op-ed written by Michael Miller of The Washington Post. In the piece, Miller is highly critical of Comey’s behavior. In fact, the headline bluntly reads, “James Comey’s abuse of power”.
Rosenstein quoted directly from the op-ed, in which Miller said that policy violations “should trouble anyone who believes in the rule of law and fundamental principles of fairness.” Comey can’t escape the wrongs he’s committed.
