Rosenstein asks federal prosecutors for help in review of Kavanaugh documents

Thursday, July 12, 2018 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , ,

(Worthy News) - Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has asked federal prosecutors to help the Department of Justice (DOJ) review Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's government documents, according to a report in The New York Times that notes the request is an unusual injection of politics into the law enforcement duties of the department.

Rosenstein made the request in an email sent to the nation's 93 U.S. attorneys, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times.

While lawyers at Justice have previously helped out with past Supreme Court nominees, asking U.S. attorneys to do so is seen as unusual.

Rosenstein said in the email that he expected he would need the equivalent of 100 full-time lawyers to work on Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. The work will reportedly be supervised by the DOJ's Office of Legal Policy in Washington. [ Source: The Hill (Read More...) ]

  1. DOJ's Sessions must havge recudsed himself from anything to do with the Trump Administrations?
    Why is Rosenstein ordering this?
    We know form is appearance before congress that Rosenstein represents Obamas continued control of the DOJ and is actually an evil man. Stalling is just part of Rosenstein being evil.

  2. Hmmmm. Very suspicious. What is Rosenstein looking for? Kavanaugh served Bush and investigated a Clinton scandal as well as the death of Vince Foster. Does Kavanaugh have information that could further blow the lid off corruption? Could Rosenstein classify the information ahead of confirmation to make it more difficult to publicize?
