Rod Rosenstein has not done enough to rein in inappropriate conduct by DOJ. FBI and Mueller in the investigation

NY Times:

Secret Memo Hints at a New Republican Target: Rod Rosenstein

The memo, raising doubts about the Russia inquiry, includes an account of Mr. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, approving surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide.
An investigation that was supposed to be about Russian collusion with the Trump campaign has morphed into a gotcha operation aimed at trapping the President and giving Democrats an excuse for an impeachment.  It has lost its legitimacy.

The stench of the handling of the investigation of Clinton's mishandling of classified material still hangs over the DOJ and the FBI.  All Muller has done so far is get an unrelated indictment against Paul Manafort and one of his associates and a couple of process crimes against two people who lied when the truth would serve them better.

The use of a Clinton bought opposition research paper as an excuse to spy on a political opponent also taints the operations of the investigators.  It turns out that the only 2016 collusion with the Russians was by the Clinton campaign.

It is time to shut this fiasco down and move on.

Update:  Andrew McCarthy takes a longer look at Rosenstein's failing to supervise those that report to him.  McCarthy specifically hones in on Mueller.
