A new bombshell report by the NY Post shows Rod Rosenstein went out of his way to rig Cohen’s trial to yield control to one of Trump’s most bitter enemies.
Sometimes I wonder if Donald Trump knew what he was really getting himself into when he decided to run for president and drain the swamp.
Everywhere he’s turned he has met roadblocks, opposition and betrayal as he tries to infuse policy he thinks will make America great again.
And ever since he was accused of colluding with Russia to sway the 2016 election, the constant turn of events have played out like a bad daytime drama. The latest twist in the plot centers around Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and if reports are true, he could be in a heap of trouble.
On Saturday, Michael Goodwin wrote in the New York Post that Rosenstein ordered United States Attorney Geoffrey Berman to recuse himself from the investigation into the Michael Cohen case, which in turn would leave his office staffed with Obama administration holdovers from Preet Bharara’s tenure as Berman’s predecessor.
Berman was appointed to the Southern District of New York position by President Trump after he fired Preet Bharara, an Obama appointee.
