Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help with Kavanaugh

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee,” the New York Times reports.

“Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide.”
