Joe diGenova told Tucker Carlson Wednesday night that Rod Rosenstein’s recent comments allegedly attacking Congress “disqualify” him from staying at the Department of Justice.

“The deputy attorney general today disqualified himself from continued service in the Department of Justice,” the former U.S. attorney told The Daily Caller co-founder. “Jeff Sessions now has an absolute responsibility to call him into his office, berate him for saying that constitutional oversight is extortion.”


“That statement by a constitutional officer like Rod Rosenstein is disgraceful, it’s an embarrassment to the department, but it is of a pattern of what Mr. Rosenstein has done there since he has arrived.”

DiGenova called the deputy attorney general a “careerist.”

“He believes the department can do no wrong and that he is going to resist calls for more information,” he continued. “When you realize that he appointed a special counsel, Robert Mueller, someone he’s very close to and who was very close to James Comey, to investigate no crime and put this country through 15-going-on-16 months of interruption of a new president, that tells you something about Rod Rosenstein.”

“He is resisting all of this because he created the original sin: an investigation of no crime.”
