The Wall Street Journal: Jeff Sessions testifies: ‘I have confidence’ in Rod Rosenstein

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday he has confidence in his second-in-command, Rod Rosenstein, who is supervising the federal investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and approved high-profile raids this month of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney.

“He works every day to do the job that he is called upon to do, that got dropped in his lap,” Sessions said at a Senate hearing in response to a question from Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. “I have confidence in him.”

Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has drawn the ire of Trump, particularly after FBI agents raided the home, offices and hotel room of his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, on April 9.
