Rosenstein: Government transparency isn’t always appropriate

The man who long oversaw special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation said Monday that it is not always appropriate for the government to be transparent about its work as he argued that prosecutors should not level public allegations against people they do not prosecute.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s comments at an event come as Mueller’s Russia probe winds down and as there is debate about what information should be made public at the end, particularly about individuals who were investigated but not charged.

Rosenstein did not discuss Mueller’s work in detail and did not suggest his comments about transparency were specifically about the investigation. But he made several remarks that could be interpreted as setting the stage for the Justice Department to not disclose as much about the investigation, and about the actions of President Donald Trump, as Democrats in Congress and many in the public might want.

“There’s a knee-jerk reaction to suggest that we should be transparent about what we do in government,” Rosenstein said. “But there are a lot of reasons not to be transparent about what we do in government.”

He added: “There may be legitimate reasons for making exceptions, but as a general principle, in my view, the Department of Justice is best served when people are confident that ... when we’re investigating American citizens in particular, we’re going to do it with appropriate sensitivity to the right of uncharged people.”

lmao good luck with that

i'd say that burying sht doesnt actually help trump in regards to 2020. esp if you look at polling that concerns the public getting a strong view of the report (for both dems and reps).

the public wants in on it. on all sides of the spectrum.

I have been consistent with all my views. I want a wall; I want deportations of illegals; I want corporate tax cuts; I want Obamacare repeal and replace. I really, really want to go after the Deep State.

Trump doesn't want any of that though.

I mean how the hell can you guys still support Trump?

Do you see me complaining? If you feel different please tell us why, without mentioning Russian collusion, porn stars or issues that you had no problem with before he was elected president.

I get the sensitivity to uncharged people, especially for someone who has been kept anonymous and is completely cleared of wrongdoing.

It's a little different when everyone knows who the players are, and transparency can show innocence and put an end to speculation about the POTUS.

They've gotten their chance to poke around, time for these phaggots to explain what they found and let it stand on it's own.

He doesn't. It's why the wall is never going to happen.

What the hell are you talking about?

Who cares what liberals want right now? Let's focus on Trump. And the fact of the matter is Trump has NO intention of building the wall. That's why in my eyes Trump supporters are on the same level as Communists.

So, Trump is a communist is what you're saying?

Just for clarification

Trump does not want a wall.
Trump is a communist and that makes his supporters just as bad as communists
Liberals are communists since they also have no intention of building the wall.
Which would mean Liberals should actually vote for Trump is what you're saying?


Am I doing this right?


On a serious note,

Please explain why you think Trump doesn't want a wall

How are the people who voted for Trump on the same level as Communists in your eyes? Would love to hear your brilliant in-depth rationalization
