Rosenstein lied at his Senate Confirmation Hearing, in writing (He might as well have written “I will consult the DOJ devil regarding potential conflicts of interest”). Shame on the Judiciary Committee for letting him get away with this deceptive non-answer.
Rosenstein deceived the public about his commitment to ethics and recusal when faced with conflicts of interest, like the fact that his wife Lisa Barsoomian is bunk buddies with the Clintons, Obamas, CIA, FBI, etc.
PN56-115th Congress (2017-2018). (Mar. 07, 2017). Rod J. Rosenstein Confirmation Hearing QUESTIONAIRE. Senate Judiciary.
Rosenstein takes NO responsibility for making his own ethical decisions. Instead, he defers the whole subject to an amorphous blob.
In law, a willful omission is a lie. Ignorance of the law is not an excuse. Since he actually rewrote DOJ Ethics Guidelines, he has no excuse. The public has a right to rely on ROSENSTEIN’S PERSONAL DECISIONS REGARDING ETHICS. “The DOJ devil allowed me do it” is not an excuse.
Poppycock. No one in the Senate Judiciary Committee should have allowed him to get away with this non-answer.
Look at Rosenstein’s Honors and Awards – Can anyone say SES grooming?
Loyalty to the Queen?
