Rosenstein declares DOJ ‘is not going to be extorted’

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Monday defended the Justice Department against attacks by GOP leaders including President Donald Trump.

His recent statements came in the wake of reports that some congressional Republicans have discussed drafting articles of impeachment against him.

“We have people who are accountable,” Rosenstein said, declining to comment specifically on the alleged partisan plot.

“I just don’t have anything to say about documents like that that nobody had the courage to put their name on and that they leak in that way,” he said.

Roseinstein, who is in charge of the special counsel probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, said efforts to intimidate him or others in the Justice Department would fail.

“There have been people who have been making threats privately and publicly against me for quite some time,” he said. “And I think they should understand by now that the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted. We’re going to do what’s required by the rule of law and any kind of threats that anybody makes are not going to effect the way we do our job.”

  1. BS, Rosenstein! If you were operating by the rule of law, you, the Clintons, Comey and many others would be in jail. Resign, go away.
