President Trump may call for investigations of certain people on Twitter, including Hillary Clinton, but Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is setting the record straight.
On Fox News Sunday he said, "The president has not directed us to investigate particular people. That wouldn't be right. That's not the way we operate."
This was in response to Trump's recent comment calling for Clinton's deleted emails to be investigated.
The president has also called out Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Robert Mueller, special counsel appointed to the Trump Russia Investigation.
Rosenstein added, "I view what the president says publicly as something he said publicly. If the president wants to give orders to us in the department, he gives that to us privately."
