Without elaborating on the abrupt need for the warning — one which savvier members of the public and independent media have long been cognizant — Rosentein’s statement followed a Washington Post piece on an investigation headed by Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller into President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and possible connections to Russian meddling in the election.
Indeed, this warning also rides the coattails of a now-voluminous cache of articles from the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and other once-illustrious media organizations, touting — as if steel truth — unnamed and thus unverifiable officials who promise it was The Russians interfering in the U.S. presidential elections who manipulated public perception to sway the vote for Donald Trump.
But the irony and magnanimous hypocrisy of the corporate-backed press didn’t end with reporting Rosenstein’s warning.
CNN, in an article on the deputy AG’s statement, ridiculously upped the hilarity factor, citing not only another anonymous source, but one putatively from inside — wait for it — the Department of Justice.
