Rod Rosenstein: Our national coalition implores you – DO NOT RESIGN

September 26, 2018

The Loyal Opposition and 40 other national organizations and individuals committed to the rule of law, including conservatives, sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Tuesday imploring him not to resign, and to stay in his position to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. FULL TEXT: Dear Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein: We are writing to thank you for your heroic efforts on behalf of the nation and to express our hope that you will continue your service as Deputy Attorney General and not resign. You have done an enormous amount for the country in appointing Special Counsel Robert Mueller to conduct the Russia investigation, in protecting that investigation from outside interference, and in otherwise standing up for the finest traditions of the Department of Justice. You have defended the Constitution and the rule of law in accomplishing all of this in the face of unwarranted and relentless attacks from various places. The stakes for the country are paramount in continuing to ensure that the Mueller and related investigations are allowed to continue uninterrupted to their conclusion without any outside interference. If you leave, the American people have no guarantees that those investigations will remain independent and free from intervention or restrictions in the future. The American people are entitled to know the results of the Mueller investigation and the handling of any report from Special Counsel Mueller is currently to be determined by you. It is essential for the good of the country that you stay at your post and continue to protect the Mueller and related investigations from any outside interference. We strongly urge you not to resign, and should your resignation be demanded, to decline. Those who were fired in the Saturday Night Massacre were celebrated at the time as heroes, a judgment vindicated by history.
