NOT HOW IT’S DONE

Rod Rosenstein: Trump Did Not Direct Feds to Investigate Hillary Clinton

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Sunday that President Trump has not directed the Justice Department to investigate “particular people,” after Trump said at a Thursday rally that prosecutors should investigate Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails. “If the president wants to give orders to us in the department, he does that privately, and then if we have any feedback, we provide it to him,” Rosenstein said on Fox News Sunday. “The president has not directed us to investigate particular people. That wouldn’t be right. That’s not the way we operate.”
