The Trump administration’s rationale for the firing of FBI Director James Comey is laid out in a memo written by an official many people have probably never heard of: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The White House says President Trump fired Comey at the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Rosenstein.
Sessions said in a memo to Trump that a “fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI. It is essential that this Department of Justice clearly reaffirm its commitment to longstanding principles that ensure the integrity and fairness of federal investigations and prosecutions.”
