Rod Rosenstein blasts James Comey as a ‘partisan pundit’

May 14, 2019 by Jerry McCormick

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is getting sick and tired of former FBI Director James Comey firing cheap shots at him.

After Comey bashed Rosenstein’s character in New York Times op-ed, Rosenstein fired back that Comey sounds more and more like a “partisan pundit” with every passing day.

Crossing Lines

Comey’s comments were rather startling, considering Rosenstein has never really publicly said a bad word about him. The only thing he could have ever done to upset Comey was to issue a memo agreeing that Comey deserved to be fired for overstepping his bounds.

The one thing that Comey got wrong, according to Rosenstein, was holding a press conference for a case that was still open and expressing his personal beliefs as to what should happen. Comey did this without first consulting with the Attorney General or prosecutors working the case. That case, obviously, was the Hillary email scandal.

At the time, Rosenstein stated Comey’s actions were not “reasonable.”

Partisan Pundit

Since being fired by President Donald Trump, Comey has written a book, penned numerous op-eds and been called upon as an expert by numerous networks.

In most cases, Comey goes out of his way to take a shot at Trump.

On this, Rosenstein stated, “Now, the former director is a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul.”

The last part was in reference to Comey saying Trump takes peoples’ souls “one bite at a time.”

Rosenstein continued, “Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors. Generally, we base our opinions on eyewitness testimony.”

Since retiring, Comey has proven he is a man driven by revenge. He has attacked Trump for rightfully firing him and now he is throwing shade on Rosenstein.

He’s not only shown Trump was right to fire him, but he has also proven he really never should have held that position in the first place.
