In his resume, which was submitted during his confirmation hearing to be deputy attorney general, Rosenstein gave inaccurate dates to Congress regarding when he worked for Ken Starr’s investigative legal team.
Given Rosenstein was under oath when he provided the documents, it raises serious questions about perjury.
Starr’s team was investigating former President Bill Clinton’s crimes in Arkansas prior to moving forward with evidence of his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
According to his Senate questionnaire, Rosenstein stated he began working the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland in 1997, which is when Clinton was in office.
However, records indicate he interviewed Hillary Clinton on behalf Starr’s investigation in the Whitewater case on January 14, 1998.
Rosenstein’s interview with Hillary Clinton only lasted fifteen minutes, and he cleared her of all charges stemming from Whitewater and the Clinton administration mysteriously “finding” the travel logs buried in the White House.
Here’s the issue: Rosenstein’s interview occurred outside of the time frame Rosenstein told the Senate he worked for Starr’s office.
In 1998, Rosenstein is listed as one of two “Whitewater prosecutors” who interviewed Hillary Clinton on the FBI Travel Office scandal. Rosenstein oversaw the “FBI Travel Office case,” which involved Bill Clinton’s White House seizing FBI documents against “former White House employees.”
Rosenstein not only cleared Hillary Clinton of all charges, he swept the case under the rug and tried to hide the evidence against Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Below is a copy of the resume Rosenstein submitted to Congress, which lists his term in Starr’s office from 1995 to 1997.
It states he began working in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland — in the Clinton administration — in 1997:
There are two main issues at hand.
First, it appears Rosenstein lied on his resume about when he supposedly interrogated Hillary Clinton about the travel log scandal.
Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, it raises serious questions about why he lied and what he may have covered up.
Did he break any laws or act corruptly to help the Clintons skirt charges in another major corruption scheme?
Many would agree Rosenstein should be forced to answer about why he provided false documents to Congress.
