Napolitano Makes Shocking Rosenstein Claim Concerning Manafort
To many on the right in the United States, it seems like the Robert Mueller investigation, particularly the focus on Paul Manafort, is petty and politically-motivated. Some are even wondering why the special investigators are going after him at all, considering the crimes that are being taken to court have nothing to do with the alleged Russian ‘collusion’ that was the supposed purpose of the investigation.
Now, the Manafort legal team may have a chance to turn the tables, and they may even call Rod Rosenstein to testify as a witness. He decided not to prosecute Manafort 8-years-ago on these same charges. This point was driven home by Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News, even while there was a seeming media blackout about this information elsewhere.
The man who exonerated him was none other than Rod Rosenstein, currently the Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice, and the person overseeing the Mueller special investigation.
Napolitano suggested that Manafort’s lawyers may even ask Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein to take the stand, and demand that he explain his rationale(s) in not pursuing these charges when they were discovered.
