Fitton: Congress Failed in Its Oversight of Rosenstein, DOJ

On "Fox & Friends First" Friday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Congress has "failed" in its oversight of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the Department of Justice.

Responding to a report that there are ongoing discussions to bring Rosenstein in for testimony with lawmakers this year, Fitton said he does not believe Rosenstein will ever go before Congress.
Lawmakers have sought to bring Rosenstein in over reports he suggested secretly recording President Trump and once broached the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office last year. Rosenstein has denied the reports.

Rosenstein was overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation until Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointed Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker.
"Congress failed in it's oversight of Rod Rosenstein, it's failed in its oversight of the Justice Department," Fitton said.
