So why is Rosenstein still in his position?
A classified memo put together by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee that accuses the Justice Department of abuse will reportedly expose surveillance on a former Trump campaign adviser that continued into last year.
The highly sought after memo says, according to the New York Times, that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved a request last spring for extended surveillance on Carter Page, an unpaid foreign policy adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign.
Republicans appear poised to argue that Rosenstein did not thoroughly review the request to spy on Carter through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), using the law enforcement official as a weapon in their power struggle with DOJ.
The memo is said to suggest that Rosenstein did not do his homework before he OK’d the warrant that followed on a previous request for surveillance that had been justified at the time by the so-called dirty dossier that ex-British spy Christopher Steele compiled on Trump.
