Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says Special Counsel Robert Mueller can investigate any crime he uncovers in the Russia probe. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is stewing at his Bedminster golf club on hearing this news.
Washington Post: ‘Rosenstein said special counsel Robert S. Mueller III can investigate any crimes that he might discover within the scope of his probe, but the deputy attorney general would not discuss which individuals are the subject of their inquiry. The interview comes days after Trump said he believes it would be inappropriate for Mueller to dig into Trump family finances.
“The special counsel is subject to the rules and regulations of the Department of Justice, and we don’t engage in fishing expeditions,” Rosenstein said when asked about the probe in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.””
