Rod Rosenstein Heads To WH For Meeting Amid Much Speculation on His Future

rod rosenstein 1Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein expects to be fired following reports about his early tenure within the Justice Department but had not actually stepped down as he traveled to the White House on Monday morning for a meeting, despite bad reporting from Axios and others.

A source close to Rosenstein said he believes he will lose his job following the New York Times report on Friday that described him discussing secretly recording President Trump and enlisting other Cabinet officers to remove Trump from power under the 25th Amendment. Rosenstein denied the report.

Some news organizations reported that Rosenstein had submitted a verbal resignation to White House officials, but this seems to have been yet another diversion by Trump. Supposedly Trump will meet directly with Rosenstein on Thursday.

Trump was not at the White House today as he traveled to New York City for the United Nations General Assembly.
