A McClatchy report said that there was an investigation, but a reporter revealed that was only the conclusion drawn by congressmen.
McClatchy reported Friday afternoon that the investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and Russia now included a probe of a possible cover-up, but the reporter revealed on MSNBC that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had not in fact confirmed that information.
Ari Melber, MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, asked reporter Lesley Clark if Rosenstein had actually confirmed the expansion of the probe or if that was only the conclusion of congressmen who had sat in on an earlier briefing from Rosenstein.
“That was [the congressmen’s] conclusion. That is what they came to think of given what [Rosenstein] said and the questions that they asked him,” Clark said
Clark’s answer revealed that Rosenstein had not actually produced a definitive answer on an investigation into a coverup. Her story instead relied on the conclusions drawn by partisan congressmen.
