Former Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has had a tough couple of years at work… and it’s mostly Jim Comey’s fault.
If Comey had been a better leader and a more upstanding FBI Director, Rosenstein wouldn’t have had to suffer the slings and arrows he’s dealt with since Donald Trump became President.
Recently, the now-retired Assistant Attorney General opened up on how he feels about the aforementioned Comey.
Let’s just say… Rosenstein isn’t a fan.
“I do not blame the former director for being angry,” Rosenstein 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.”
He’s right, of course.
Maybe Comey was right to be upset for getting fired. However, everything Comey has done since his firing has proven that Rosenstein (and Trump) were right to fire him in the first place.
Comey has proven himself to be a partisan hack who has a personal animus against the President.
Comey has also proven to be an immoral man, willing to sacrifice the good of his country, for his own wallet.
Now the question becomes, ‘Why wasn’t Comey fired sooner?’
