Trump Disses Rod Rosenstein: 'He's From Baltimore'

9 eyecatching extracts from Donald Trump’s latest extensive interview

Rosenstein sat down with Fox News Channel's Martha MacCallum for an exclusive interview and tsk-tsked Comey using legal speak.

During his Senate testimony last month, former FBI Director James Comey revealed that he had given one of the memos he took of his conversations with President Donald Trump to a friend in order to release to the press.

"We take confidentiality seriously, and so when we have memoranda about our ongoing matters, we have an obligation to keep that confidential", Rosenstein said.

Rosenstein said he would not comment on that specific situation, which was his answer to a number of pointed questions about various topics.

Rod Rosenstein was lifted from relative obscurity to serve as the nation's No. 2 law enforcement authority.

Rosenstein was responsible for hiring special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the Russia investigation, which includes a probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials in the 2016 campaign.

"I've got to explain that I made the decision to appoint Director Mueller based upon his reputation". Really bi-partisan support for his integrity.

Rosenstein also assured the Fox News host that the Department of Justice would take care of it if any conflicts of interest arose.

Emails released by Donald Jr earlier this month showed that he had agreed to meet past year with a woman he thought was a Russian government lawyer with damaging information on his father's rival Hillary Clinton.
