Here's the statement:

"Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories any stories attributed to anonymous 'officials,'" Rosenstein said in a statement, "particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated."


This is just weird. The article seems to believe that rosenstein is talking about the kushner story, but it doesn't fit when it talks about the nation or government who is the source of the anonymous source.

Anyone heard anything big coming down the pike?

“Robert Mueller, this guy has more conflicts of interest than, by the way, that we can count on this show, which are also violations of federal law,” he continued. “Mueller and Comey have been close friends for a long time. Comey admitted he leaked the memo to The New York Times, to the press, hoping it would bring about a special counsel which, by the way, turned out to be his best buddy, his BFF


Something big is about to drop on these guys.

It's not that weird....he is basically saying the same thing
as Comey, Gowdy, and a few others.

Anonymous sources to the NYT and Wa Po
click bait stories on Trump obstruction are
not bonafide real news.
Rosenstein warns Americans to 'exercise caution' about anonymous reports

Rosenstien can limit the scope of the special counsel
eta: good find!

is that just a random one off or did you actually look into it because Hannity made a statement about it 15 hours ago...

timing seems a bit odd doesn't it?

I know of a certain ATSer who has been pointing this out persistently, and they have also been right, persistently. We're all getting tired of these "anonymous sources" day in, day out.

Trump could fire the special counsel, especially
since he was put in place to look into the Russaia
collusion. But since Trump was never under
investigation, what is the purpose of the special
counsel? They will quickly find something?



Though Rosenstein's statement did not reference the Russia investigation specifically, it was released hours after the Washington Post reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Jared Kushner — Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law — over his finances and business dealings.




He is basically saying Wa Po story is fake news!

Something tells me that they are attempting to isolate leakers. Sounds like a honeypot gotcha scenario.

He was assigned a special prosecutor for something that admittedly never happened.

There is no crime it makes no sense.

Trying to isolate leakers?

How many leaks has there been since Comey got fired?

Witch hunt, plain and simple. Just like the Dem's election campaign, it's going to blow up in their face.

I thought leaks were good?

You know, like the Podesta leaks...

But they're bad when it goes the other way?

Oh I know you're smart enough to know the difference between substantiated and implied.

If Comeys memo was leaked in its entirety, that would be a comparable argument.

Are you trying to draw a false equivalency between the leaks about Trump(which have all turned out to be false or inapropriate) and the leaks with Podesta where there was clear corruption and collusion with the DNC to cheat Sanders out of the nomination and.... other very odd e-mails related to pizza??

The Podesta leaks were from an established and named source -- Podesta himself.

Other than the one Comey leak based upon his own "memo", can you name one other sourced leak pertaining to Trump?

There is no real difference, except in the eyes of those who have an agenda.

One mans leaker is another's whistleblower.

The memo is false?

Yeah you're living in fantasy land.

Proven by your comments about pizza.

It's a fundamental right of a free press...


The protection of sources, sometimes also referred to as the confidentiality of sources or in the U.S. as the reporter's privilege, is a right accorded to journalists under the laws of many countries, as well as under international law.
