Martha MacCallum Previews Exclusive Interview With Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein
By: Martha MacCallum
Entering the Department of Justice, one is struck by the enormity and importance of preserving and defending the integrity of our system of equality under the law.
No one is above the law in the United States of America. The country began with these words, written by Thomas Jefferson and refined a bit by Ben Franklin in the Declaration of Independence:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."
So let's just say the bar is high for the current Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, the Special Counsel and all those working on the "Russia" situation and all else that falls under their law enforcement purview.
This week I entered the halls of "DOJ" to speak with Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein about issues that are front and center in this administration.
For example, can the police or law enforcement take money from your car when they pull you over, if they suspect it came from a drug sale? Yes, and this administration intends to use that right to fuller extent.
Seek the highest provable offense and commensurate sentence. That is also their aim as dictated by Attorney General Sessions, who seeks to lower crime on our streets and toughen the stance against all drug criminals.
Where the "Russia" story is concerned, you'll hear Rosenstein's answers on Comey's leaks to the press and his confidence in Special Counsel Mueller.
Don't miss it tonight at 7:00pm ET on "The Story" and check out a preview clip above.
