Justice Dept. Issues Bizarre Warning Against Believing Anonymous Sources Despite Trump’s History Of Citing ‘Anonymous Sources’

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein issued a statement Thursday night warning Americans against believing anonymous sources.

“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,’ particularly when they do not identify the country — let alone the branch or agency of government — with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote Thursday.




“Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations,” the statement continues. “The Department of Justice has a long-standing policy to neither confirm or deny such allegations.”

The Hill added:

“The statement was Rosenstein’s first remarks since he said in a Senate hearing on Tuesday that he had not seen any “good cause” to fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.”
