Chaffetz on Rosenstein Going After Leakers: He Has 'Absolutely Zero Credibility'

Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has “absolutely zero credibility” on addressing the issue of leakers.

"I asked him if he looked at Hillary Clinton whether she told the truth under oath. He said he needed a request from Congress. Myself and the chairman of the Judiciary Committee to the department of justice. It has never been answered,” Chaffetz said.

"Let’s start with Hillary Clinton and whether or not she lied under oath and go back to the State Department who had an open investigation," he added. "They reopened it July 7th of 2016. Nearly 300 people who are dealing in classified information in a nonsecure setting, why didn’t they ever close that investigation? They need to answer those questions. Start with that. They come with zero credibility on this issue."

The former congressman’s comments come after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Justice Department would be cracking down on leakers and warned members of the media that they “cannot place lives at risk with impunity.”

"We respect the important role the press plays and we’ll give them respect, but it’s not unlimited,” Sessions said. “They cannot place lives at risk with impunity. We must balance the press’ role with protecting our national security and the lives of those who serve in the intelligence community, the Armed Forces and all law-abiding Americans.”

Sessions’s announcement put the attorney general back in the good graces of President Trump, who praised the Justice Department’s new focus.

"After many years of LEAKS going on in Washington, it is great to see the A.G. taking action! For National Security, the tougher the better!" the president tweeted over the weekend.
