Deputy U.S. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will conduct a classified briefing for the full U.S. Senate on President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey on Thursday, May 18, at 2:30 p.m. EDT, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said  Monday.

"Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has accepted the Majority Leader's invitation to lead an all-senators briefing regarding the removal of former FBI Director James Comey," McConnell said in a statement Monday.

McConnell invited Rosenstein to the Senate after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer requested it. Schumer, D-N.Y., also has demanded a briefing from Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has requested a similar briefing this week for the House, Politico reports.

"In the days since the firing of Director Comey, there has been a distressing disparity of information being made available to the Senate but not to the House," the California Democrat wrote in a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., according to Politico.

The House will be back in session Tuesday after a one-week district work period.
