Schumer's Greatest Flip-Flop Yet

This is just becoming farcical...

After confirming Rod Rosenstein as deputy attorney general by a Senate vote of 94 to 6 on April 25th, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said that:

Rosenstein told him during a private meeting that “he would appoint a special counsel to conduct that investigation if one is required.”

 

“He has promised to give this careful consideration. I believe if he studies the department regulations, he will come to the same conclusion many of us have, that a special counsel is merited,” he added.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) also chimed in that the best way for Rosenstein to oversee the Russia-Trump investigation with “independence, diligence and integrity” would be to appoint a special prosecutor.

If Mr. Rosenstein does not appoint a special counsel, the spotlight will be on him personally to make sure the investigation is conducted properly no matter where it leads. I hope he exercises good judgment,”

This morning Schumer demanded

"What should happen now, what must happen now, is that Mr. Rosenstein appoints a special prosecutor to oversee this investigation."

 

And now, just hours later Schumer addresses The Senate...

  • *SCHUMER: ROSENSTEIN SHOULDN'T APPOINT SPECIAL PROSECUTOR
  • *SCHUMER: `SERIOUS DOUBTS' CAST ON ROSENSTEIN IMPARTIALITY
  • *SCHUMER: ROSENSTEIN SIGNED HIS NAME TO 'HIGHLY POLITICAL MEMO'

So to summarize for the mainstream media out there...

0944ET: Schumer "What should happen now, what must happen now, is that Mr. Rosenstein appoints a special prosecutor to oversee this investigation."

 

1500ET: Schumer "I have serious doubts over Rosenstein's impartiality...  he shouldn't appoint the special prosecutor."

Presumably our great and unbiased media will call him on this utter charade!!
