Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said Tuesday on MSNBC that she’s “certainly headed that way” when asked if she would vote to confirm Rod Rosenstein for Deputy Attorney General.
“He is clearly someone that has a lot of trust. He came in with President Bush but then was reappointed by President Obama and has a lot of respect from prosecutors and lawyers throughout the country,” Klobuchar said.
Democrats had hoped to stall Rosenstein’s nomination in order to force the Deputy Attorney General nominee to committ to a special prosecutor for an investigation into President Trump’s Russia ties.
Klobuchar’s stance towards Rosenstein dealt a blow to that hope.
