Schiffer on NYT Rosenstein Report: If True, It Suggests He’s ‘Not Emotionally Stable’ Under Pressure

‘We’re talking about the president of the United States, were not talking about a mafia boss’

EXCERPT:

LAYFIELD: "Eric, should Rod Rosenstein, I keep saying it wrong, should he be fired?"

SCHIFFER: "Well, again, as Kurt mentioned we don’t know if it’s true. We have no idea. If it is true, it certainly suggests this is a man that is not emotionally stable during times of pressure and stress and that would react in a way that is lacking in the type of conduct you have in that kind of position. And that he would expose himself in front of people with those comments. It seems inconsistent with the way he has presented his image today himself but we don’t know whether it’s true or not. If it’s true, it’s a serious problem because you’re talking about someone who clearly had an agenda to put a stake through the heart of the President of the United States and set him up in a judicial way to essentially take him out. That’s highly unusual. We're talking about the President of the United States, we're not talking about a mafia boss."
