From the Washington Examiner:
A White House spokeswoman on Thursday declined to confirm or deny a report that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to resign his post after the Trump administration painted him as the key decision maker in the dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey.
The Washington Post reported late Wednesday that Rosenstein threatened to resign Tuesday night after the administration developed a narrative that he had decided to review Comey’s performance. The White House said Rosenstein had made the decision to investigate Comey himself and then brought a recommendation to Trump to fire Comey.
White House deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday she didn’t know if that report was true.
“I’m not aware of that conversation, but I do know that the decision to fire Comey was the president’s and the president’s alone,” Sanders said on NBC Thursday.
