DiGenova: Conduct by Mueller, Rosenstein an 'Embarrassment,' Undermines Equal Enforcement
Says it's 'a shame' Rosenstein cannot be fired.
Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova ripped Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for his conduct in regard to the Mueller probe.
DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, said on "Hannity" that Rosenstein is "an embarrassment to this administration."
He said it is unfortunate that due to the political climate, Rosenstein cannot be fired.
DiGenova said that Rosenstein should have recused himself from some parts of the investigation, because he is a witness as to whether or not obstruction of justice occurred in the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
He said that America is witnessing "conduct by two public officials [Rosenstein and Robert Mueller] that is unethical, unprofessional and [an] embarrassment to the U.S. government."
DiGenova said Rosenstein "single-handedly [has] taken away from the president of the United States 16 months of his presidency" by appointing Mueller.
Alan Dershowitz agreed with the statement, but said Republicans also made a mistake by impeaching Bill Clinton without any possibility that he could be removed from office.
