Rosenstein mum on re-opening Clinton email investigation

Wednesday Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, in an interview with Fox News, repeatedly declined to say whether the Justice Department might reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Rosenstein said he would not comment on the FBI investigation into whether Clinton mishandled classified information, which was closed last summer without charges being filed.

When asked by MacCallum if he would ever consider re-opening the investigation, Rosenstein answered “every decision we make … about whether to investigate, whether to prosecute, is based upon the facts in the law [and] an independent determination with the insight and investigative work of our career agents and prosecutors.”

In a May 9 memo, Rosenstein told Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he “cannot defend” Comey’s handling of the Clinton email probe, particularly his public announcement that Clinton would not face prosecution. However, Rosenstein told MacCallum Wednesday he was dissatisfied with the “publicity surrounding the investigation,” not necessarily the investigation’s outcome.
