Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) ripped Democrats for their hypocrisy over calls for a special prosecutor at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Deputy Attorney General on Tuesday.
Democrats have threatened to hold up the nomination of Rod Rosenstein for Deputy Attorney General if Rosenstein does not commit to appointing a special prosecutor to investigate President Trump’s campaign ties to Russia.
“Where were these calls from the other side when Attorney General Lynch was overseeing the Clinton investigations? Attorney General Lynch had been appointed by President Clinton to be a U.S. Attorney. Her law firm had represented the Clintons,” Grassley said.
“Where were the calls for a special consul when Congress referred a criminal contempt citation,” Grassley continued, “against Attorney General Holder for withholding documents on Fast and Furious scandal? He misled Congress about when he learned about Fast and Furious. Where were the calls from the other side to have hearings on that?”
