Rosenstein to brief Trump on findings of investigation into Clinton's email use

This should be pretty awful. The Washington Post writes that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “is expected to brief President Trump on Thursday about the inspector general report on law enforcement’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe before it is released to the public.”

The president “is really anxious to see the report,” said a person familiar with the planned Thursday briefing for Trump, which is expected to take place around the same time that lawmakers are informed of the inspector general’s findings. White House lawyer Emmet Flood is also expected to be present for the briefing, but Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, is not, the person said.

The inspector general announced last week that his office would release its report on Clinton’s use of a private email server June 14 — which is also Trump’s birthday.

Great—Trump should be especially noxious on his special day. And he certainly won’t let any aspect of the IG report that doesn’t fit with his self-victimization narrative ruin the stream of delusional vitriol that will surely spew forth from his Twitter feed.

The IG report is expected to be critical of former FBI director James  Comey and the agency’s handling of the probe. Trump will clearly delight in shaming Comey. What will be interesting to see is whether the IG rebukes Comey for politicizing the probe, which most certainly gave a generous assist to Trump throughout the campaign (not to mention a week out from Election Day).
