Conway on if Trump Will Invoke Exec. Privilege: ‘The President Will Make that Decision’

‘We also want to refer everybody to what Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said about James Comey’

EXCERPT:

STEPHANOPOULOS: "So the President will not invoke executive privilege?" 
CONWAY: "The President will make that decision, but, look, we also want to refer everybody to what Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said about James Comey, because Rosenstein as DAG, he has direct authority over the FBI director and he came on the job after being confirmed 94-6 in the U.S. Senate after serving as President Obama’s U.S. Attorney in Maryland. And coming on the job he went and looked at the investigation about the way Mr. Comey handled Hillary Clinton’s e-mail investigation and he concluded that it really hurt the morale and the integrity of the department."
