Rosenstein Blasts 'Partisan Pundit' Comey in Speech

Rod Rosenstein didn’t waste any time since stepping down as deputy attorney general to open up about his time at the Justice Department, which included a biting criticism of the FBI’s ex-director, James Comey.

Speaking to the Greater Baltimore Committee on Monday, only two days after formally leaving his post at the DOJ, Rosenstein defended the decision to fire Comey, whom he said trampled “bright lines that should never be crossed.” He also took issue with the former FBI director’s suggestion earlier this month that Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill Barr did not have the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.”

“I do not blame the former director for being angry,” he said. “But now the former director is a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul. That is disappointing. Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors. Generally we base our opinions on eyewitness testimony.”

While Rosenstein acknowledged he would’ve handled the firing of Comey with “more respect and far less drama,” he nevertheless defended his memo that criticized Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe.

"The clearest mistake was the director’s decision to hold a press conference about an open case, reveal his recommendation and discuss details about the investigation, without the consent of the prosecutors and the attorney general," Rosenstein said. "Then, he chose to send a letter to the Congress on the eve of the election stating that one of the candidates was under criminal investigation, expecting it to be released immediately to the public."
