Former Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein slammed ousted FBI Director James Comey Monday during remarks to the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC). He specifically went after Comey for his recent attack on both Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill Barr, alleging they lacked the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.” Rosenstein pushed back, arguing that Comey’s overt bias and undermining the integrity of the Russia and Hillary Clinton investigations trampled “bright lines that should never be crossed.” The Deep State continues intramural war like crabs in a bucket, and with AG Barr’s special investigator, things will only get worse for them. Get your popcorn ready.

Rod Rosenstein unloaded on former FBI Director James Comey in remarks to the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) on Monday evening, slamming Comey’s turn as a “partisan pundit,” reiterating that he deserved to be fired, and faulting him for trampling “bright lines that should never be crossed.”
Rosenstein formally stepped aside as deputy attorney general two days ago. His speech specifically took aim at Comey’s comments earlier this month implying that Rosenstein and Attorney General Bill Barr lacked the “inner strength” to “resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump.”
Comey also derided Rosenstein’s “character” and suggested his “soul” had been consumed “in small bites.” The former FBI boss, who has taken to posting numerous photographs of himself in nature staring wistfully at trees and roadways since leaving public office, had been showered with media attention in recent months, and his memoir earned him over $2 million.
