Fake news: Deputy AG 'threatened to quit'

(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Thursday he didn’t threaten to quit after FBI Director James Comey was fired, contrary to a Wednesday press report.

Rosenstein was asked to respond to the report by Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Michelle Macaluso as he was walking out of a meeting with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

“No, I’m not quitting,” he said in a video posted to Twitter.
