(National Sentinel) Media: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein took time out of his busy day this afternoon to warn Americans about certain leaked stories the fake news Washington Post has published over the past couple of days regarding special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Team Trump: Be careful what you believe.
As reported by The Daily Caller, Rosenstein appeared to question a couple of stories claiming that Mueller’s widening investigation of President Donald J. Trump and his inner circle is now focusing on alleged presidential ‘obstruction of justice’ and son-in-law Jared Kushner’s alleged “financial dealings” with Russia.
“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,’ particularly when they do not identify the country – let alone the branch or agency of government – with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated,” Rosenstein said. “Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations.”
The DC noted:
Shortly before the Department of Justice released Rosenstein’s statement, the Post published a story claiming that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Kushner’s business dealings as part the probe into Russian election meddling. The story cited “U.S. officials familiar with the matter” as the source for its claim.
The media’s record with anonymously-sourced stories, particularly concerning the Russia investigation, has been mixed as of late.
Well, that’s an understatement. The Post, especially, has published one fake news story after another, willingly allowing itself to be used as a presstitute for the Deep State, lapping up every “tip” and “leak” then irresponsibly reporting it verbatim, without bothering to go through the usual journalistic practice of verifying the information.
The New York Times has been no better.
In recent weeks fired FBI Director James Comey testified that the “mainstream media” reporting on this “Russia” business has been largely false. Now the deputy AG is saying the same thing.
The establishment press has no credibility anymore, period.
