DiGenova: Sessions Must Fire 'Incompetent, Compromised & Conflicted' Rod Rosenstein
Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova ripped special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the wake of the raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's properties.
DiGenova, who served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, said the raid on Cohen was an "unconstitutional and unprofessional search."
He said Cohen was cooperating with the special counsel and was not deserving of the severe treatment on behalf of the Southern District of New York.
DiGenova also agreed with some critics who said Rosenstein must be relieved of duty due to conflicts of interest and an alleged bias against Trump.
"Rod Rosenstein is so incompetent, compromised and conflicted that he can no longer serve as the deputy attorney general," diGenova said of the former Maryland federal prosecutor.
DiGenova said Attorney General Jeff Sessions has the responsibility to fire Rosenstein, not Trump.
"It's so appalling in every sense," he said of the situation.
