Fmr DOJ Spox Goes Off on ‘Weak’ Rod Rosenstein: ‘He’s Always Been Weak’

Matthew Miller, a former chief spokesman at the DOJ under Obama and current MSNBC analyst, went off on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein this afternoon and said he’s been “weak.” ....

“He shouldn’t be talking to the president about an investigation into the president under any circumstances and he shouldn’t be giving him assurances about how that investigation will end and he especially shouldn’t be doing it at a time when he’s begging and pleading for his own job… The way to understand Rod is he’s weak, and he’s always been weak. He was weak at the beginning of this investigation when he signed off on the Comey firing and gave the president the excuse, despite––we now know, having read the Mueller report––that he knew why the president was firing Comey, that it was over the Russia investigation.”


He listed other examples of Rosenstein being weak before concluding that all this “raises real questions about the way the deputy attorney general has performed his job.”

You can watch above, via MSNBC.

9. No kidding. I honestly cannot believe the power this weak, pathetic shell of a

man has over others. Why do so many people willingly destroy their reputations and careers for this fucking idiot? They must know that he will never return their loyalty. I will never get it. I can only imagine that they are as stupid as he is.

11. I've been thinking about that

Perhaps it's because Trump only attracts poor quality people in the first place. In a normal administration, someone like Rosenstein would never rise to such a lofty position. So he was willing to prostitute himself to keep the job.

19. Sounds about right.

You don't need to have a lot of relatives or friends from NYC area, as many of us do, to have heard how poorly Trump was regarded locally, as he began to push his "brand " into national prominence. Having long worked locally in politics, I do know Trump has some inexplicable "fans" who are perfectly literate. I suspect hidden tendencies to bully. There would seem to be a tendency to buck the system which runs opposite to the old "hippie" attitude. What goes around, comes around?

I believe Putin is behind all this. Must be threatening his kids, or something like that.

3. Rosenstein lacks character and integrity.

Made a bad mistake that will harm his future.

4. I think Rosenstein was desperate to save the investigation.

It's worth remembering that he hired Mueller rather than some lackey and successfully oversaw the investigation to its conclusion. By "begging" for his job, he prevented Trump from hiring a flunky and shutting the investigation down. And the counterintelligence probe continues, as well as the other dozen cases yet to be revealed.

10. We need to do an independent investigation since I don't trust

any GOP players at this point. The jury is still out on Mueller. I like Hillary's suggestion.

12. Yes, yes, and yes

Casper Milquetoast. Perfect Trump appointee, folds under pressure to save his own weasel ass. He's a bigger weasel than Trump, because he gives off the fake appearance of thoughtfulness.

When in fact, he's a chameleon---no real colors of his own.

13. When I saw Rosentein at the Barr confirmation obviously supporting him, I thought....

here we are. The fix was/ is in. He "landed the plane." Thanks Rod. Now slide into a cush job as lobbyist/ consultant/ GOP BS manipulator. Whatever you creatures do. GOP is rotten to the core.
