Lawsuit: Rosenstein Offered Himself as ‘Anonymous’ Source to Reporters Before Mueller Appointment

Rod Rosenstein offered reporters to be anonymous source shortly before Mueller appointment

 In June of 2017, Rosenstein decried leaks to the press and said “Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials’ …”

“Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations,” Rosenstein warned in a June 2017 statement. “The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.” reports: BuzzFeed obtained through FOIA a tranche of emails from the Justice Department showing Rosenstein offering to be one of the ‘anonymous officials.’

 About two weeks before Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel, he emailed a reporter [named redacted by BuzzFeed] and told them he would be open to giving ‘off the record background or re-portable details.’


“If the latter, I should include OPA,” Rosenstein said in an email.

In another email dated May 12, 2017 leading up to his appointment of Mueller, Rosenstein responded to a reporter asking about CNN story claiming he stated that he did “not see the need for a special prosecutor.”

“Off the record: I have not said anything about that,” Rosenstein responded.

Just days before he appointed Robert Mueller, Rosenstein told a curious reporter “off the record” that he never offered to resign after stories were circulating that he was on his way out.

“None of these stories are from me,” Rosenstein said.

Rosenstein then offered to sit down with them “if/when this blows over.”

 The New York Times reported last September that Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire to record President Trump to oust him via the 25th Amendment.

Rosenstein resigned as Deputy Attorney General in May of this year.

I doubt anything will happen to him.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
