Rosenstein will testify in the Senate about the Russian investigation

The Senate Judiciary Committee has begun to study the FBI investigation, the conclusions of which formed the basis of the investigation into the case of links between the Trump campaign headquarters and Moscow.

Former Deputy Prosecutor General (Minister of justice) of the US Rod Rosenstein, one of the key participants in the investigation of ties between Russia and the campaign headquarters of Donald Trump in 2016, will next week testify at a meeting of the Legal Committee, which has begun to study the origins of the Russian investigation. Representatives of the Senate Judiciary Committee reported this.

Rod Rosenstein, who appointed former special Prosecutor Robert Mueller as the head of the investigation in 2017, will testify on June 3 at a meeting of the Legal Committee, which is now studying the results of the counterintelligence investigation codenamed “Crossfire Hurricane,” which was conducted by the FBI in 2016 and 2017 about links between employees of the trump staff and Russian officials. The investigation of Robert Mueller began based on the conclusions reached by the authors of “Cross hurricane.”

The Chairman of the Legal Committee, Republican Lindsey Graham, said that Rosenstein should expect “new revelations” about the practices of surveillance and surveillance carried out by Federal agents.

The President and his Republican Party allies claim that the purpose of the investigation was to harm Donald Trump and undermine his candidacy in the run-up to the election. In December, the Justice Department’s Inspector General found evidence of multiple errors in the FBI’s investigation, but no political implications were found.

“Even the best law enforcement officers make mistakes and … some commit willful misconduct,” Trump said in a statement released on Wednesday.
“We can only hope to maintain public trust if we correct mistakes, take responsibility for offenders, and take measures to prevent problems from recurring,” he added.

The hearing with Rosenstein is scheduled for the day before the Senate Judiciary Committee votes to issue subpoenas to summon Rod Rosenstein, former FBI Director James Comey, and other former senior officials from the Obama administration to the Senate.

The Committee’s top Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, sharply criticized the investigation organized by Republicans on the Committee, describing it as an attempt to damage Donald Trump’s political rival, Joe Biden, The democratic presidential nominee in 2020.

Mueller’s investigation revealed that Russia sought to interfere in the 2016 election to support Trump’s candidacy and that the Trump campaign had numerous contacts with Russian representatives. However, Mueller did not find enough evidence to establish the fact of criminal collusion between the Trump headquarters and Moscow.
