Rosenstein stands by Memo Critical of Comey

The Associated Press reports today that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told Congress he stands by a memo he wrote that the White House has cited as a justification for the firing last week of FBI Director James Comey. During closed-door meetings with lawmakers on Thursday and Friday, Rosenstein said he wrote the memo after President Donald Trump told him one day before the May 9 firing that he wanted to dismiss Comey. However, Rosenstein said he did not intend for the document to justify the firing, but added: “I wrote it. I believe it. I stand by it.”
