White House “Not Aware” of Report Deputy AG Threatened to Resign Over Comey

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.

  1. Now, we sit here after having read the article. Can we believe anything from the Wash Post? Is there an unnamed source Obamabot somewhere making up “inside info” to cause trouble?

    Sad day that a person can pretty much assume unsourced news is a lie.

  2. If it’s true, then “so what?” is the only answer.
    Who cares if some underling threatens to resign if something happens he doesn’t approve of or if he is used as a scapegoat by his employer. That’s how the real world operates – he who has the power makes the rules.
    The President is where the “buck” stops. It was his decision and that’s the way it is.

  3. Washington Post? Uh…the guy that owns Amazon, Bezos, bought WaPo when Trump was running for President to use as a venue to go after Trump. WaPo is trash and I never read it.
