Trump Doesn't Say If He Plans to Fire Rosenstein

Monday, 24 September 2018 09:53 PM

President Donald Trump is declining to say whether he plans to fire his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but says he hopes a Thursday meeting will help him figure out "what's going on."

The White House announced earlier Monday that Trump will meet with Rosenstein Thursday amid breathless and sometimes conflicting reports anticipating his imminent departure.

Trump told reporters on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly that, "We'll be determining what's going on. We want to have transparency, we want to have openness."

But he's declining to say whether he still has confidence in Rosenstein following reports Rosenstein discussed possibly secretly recording the president and raised the idea of using the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Rosenstein is the top Justice Department official overseeing the Trump-Russia investigation.
