Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein admitted he had not “read every word" of the faulty FISA application for a warrant on an adviser to Donald Trump’s campaign.

Rosenstein appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for a review on the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation into alleged “Russia collusion," which took almost two years and used up nearly $32 million of taxpayers' money.

Last April, Rosenstein left the department after Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded Trump had not conspired with Russia

The Department of Justice Inspector General last year also released a report proving that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) used the Christopher Steele dossier in its warrant applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court for surveillance to Trump aide Carter Page.

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee funded the“dossier,” which aimed to smear Trump.

Even after the dossier was found to be false, the FBI continued to use it.

But after Trump appointed Rosenstein in 2017, the FISA applications were signed to renew the warrant.

Rosenstein told Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)he had not read every page of the application.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) also asked Rosenstein if he had read the application before signing.

Below is the transcript:

Cruz: You just told Senator [Mike] Lee, you read the FISA application. At the time you read the FISA application, did you know that the primary source behind the Steele dossier had disavowed it and said it’s not true?

Rosenstein: At the time I reviewed it — and I’m not sure I read every word, but I certainly reviewed it — and no, I did not know that.

Rosenstein claimed he didn' t know the Democratic National Committee had funded the dossier.

Cruz: At the time you review it, did you know that there was significant exculpatory material that was omitted from it?

Rosenstein: Absolutely not.

Rosenstein claimed he didn' t know the Democratic National Committee has funded the dossier.

He then admitted that despite no evidence of collusion, the Mueller investigation proceeded anyway.

Rosenstein added he would not have signed the application if he was aware of that information.

Rosenstein’s appearance comes just one day before the committee votes on potential subpoenas for documents and testimony from top Obama officials.
