Sally Yates expressed confidence in the deputy attorney general conducting the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates told the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Russian interference in 2016 election that she is confident in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s ability to do his job on Monday.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked Yates if she knew the deputy attorney general. Yates nodded her head indicating that she did know Rod Rosenstein.
“Do you have confidence in him?” Graham then asked Yates.
“Yes, I do,” Yates said.
Rosenstein is responsible for overseeing the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the case.
Yates’ strong support of Rosenstein and her refusal to call for a special prosecutor earlier in the hearing seems to suggest that Yates feels the investigation is in good hands.
