Former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova said on Wednesday's broadcast of FNC's Hannity that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wants to remove embarrassing information from the DOJ's inspector general report.
JOE DIGENOVA, FORMER U.S. ATTORNEY FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA: Well, the reason is very simple, Sean. Rod Rosenstein is a careerist. He believes in the institution of the Department of Justice and the FBI to the exclusion of any accusations of fault.
And what's happening right now is that the I.G. report is being scrubbed by Rosenstein and his minions and people at the FBI, and they are removing as much embarrassing information about the bureau as possible. And unfortunately, it's going to delay the release of the report and perhaps put it out during the Singapore summit.
This conduct by Rosenstein and the people responsible for the delay is reprehensible, but it is of a pattern because what they want to do is they want to hurt the president -- believe it or not, the deputy attorney general wants to hurt the president and he wants to prevent the release of truthful information to deny transparency to the American people to protect career people inside the Department of Justice and the FBI.
What happened during the campaign and what happened during the Hillary Clinton email server investigation is a national disgrace and Rosenstein should be at the forefront of releasing that information. And instead, he is trying to hide substantial portion of it.
