Cruz to Rosenstein: “Either you were complicit in the wrongdoing, which I don’t believe was the case, or that your performance of your duties was grossly negligent.”
CRUZ: “Are you aware of other instances the Department of Justice employees fraudulently creating evidence to submit to court?”
ROSENSTEIN: “Every instance that I am aware of would be appropriately investigated and — and hopefully appropriate action would be taken.”
CRUZ: “Mr. Rosenstein, on May 17th you appointed Bob Mueller the special counsel. On June 29th, you signed the third FISA application. On August 2nd you signed the second scope application.
You came into a profoundly politicized world, and yet all of this was allowed to go forward under your leadership that unfortunately leads to only two possible conclusions; either that you were complicit in the wrongdoing, which I don’t believe was the case, or that your performance of your duties was grossly negligent.
[crosstalk] Was there any more important case the Department of Justice had that an investigation into whether the president of the United States is a Russian asset, colluding against the United States?”
ROSENSTEIN: “Well, that’s the way you’re characterizing the investigation, senator. There was certainly lots of important investigations, but I view this as one of the most important.”
