Judicial Watch is working to expose possible corruption in the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. On Thursday, the government watchdog group released 145 pages of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s communications from 2017. The communications included several “off the record” conversations and one email that read: “The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions.”
The timing of these communications is critical because it overlaps with President Trump’s dismissal of James Comey and his appointment of Robert Mueller.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said this explains why the left is fighting to stop President Trump from looking into the Russia probe.
“You notice this with the Ukraine argument — they don’t want the president to investigate what went on,” reiterated Fitton. “They want to criminalize investigations of this activity.”
The documents also showed Rosenstein’s off the record communications with left-wing media outlets, who praised him for appointing Mueller.
“I appreciate your support,” Rosenstein wrote. “This was supposed to be a low-profile job.”
