  • Amid Kavanaugh-Ford Hearing Trump Postpones Meeting with Rosenstein

"If [Rosenstein did say such things] and the president is satisfied that it's still OK, and keeps him, that's fine - that's the White House's call". But Wednesday, the president said that Rosenstein had a lot of respect for him and that he would prefer not to fire the deputy attorney general. "It undermines Rosenstein's credibility and Trump's ability to trust his closest advisers".

Rosenstein was spotted entering the White House on Thursday morning for what was described as a preplanned meeting and not the meeting with Trump.

Initially, Trump had said that a face-to-face meeting would take place Thursday, after he returned to the White House from three days in NY for meetings at the U.N. General Assembly.

It was unclear whether the discussion will be part of a formal House GOP investigation into allegations of misconduct and anti-Trump bias by FBI and Justice Department officials in 2016 and 2017, according to Politico.

Rosenstein now oversees the special counsel investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Trump also later reiterated his support to the deputy attorney general saying, "He said he did not say it; he said he does not believe that".

In suggesting that he might postpone Thursday's meeting, Mr Trump said he is focused on the extraordinary Senate committee hearing set for the same day with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and a woman who has accused Mr Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the president spoke with Rosenstein "a few minutes ago" and they now plan to meet next week.

Rosenstein landed in hot water after remarks first attributed to him in a New York Times report, including that he had discussed possibly secretly recording Trump and using the Constitution's 25th Amendment to remove him from office. Rosenstein has not agreed to a hearing or an interview, just a meeting, Reid reports.

"Leadership has agreed to call Rod Rosenstein before Congress, for a closed door hearing with our panel investigating, so he can explain his alleged comments on "wiring" POTUS", Meadows, the chairman of the hardline conservative House Freedom Caucus, tweeted Friday. The Justice Department issued statements from Rosenstein meant to deny the report, and released a statement from someone who recalled the recording comment but said it was meant sarcastically. Trump has signaled that he may fire Sessions after the midterms, and Rosenstein could go with him.

The committees also have invited Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, to speak with them and have sent requests to former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James B. Comey, former attorney general Loretta E. Lynch, former acting attorney general Sally Yates and former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.
