House lawmakers reviewing the Justice Department and FBI's investigation of President Donald Trump's purported connections with Russia have postponed a meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein due to a dispute over the interview's terms, The Washington Post reported.

Rosenstein was set to meet with a joint House panel Thursday, but a House Judiciary Committee aide told the Post on Wednesday that a date had not been confirmed.

"We have many questions for Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and expect answers to those questions," the aide said. "There is not, at this time, a confirmed date for a potential meeting. Nevertheless, we will continue to provide updates as we have them."

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., last week called on Rosenstein to testify before the House Judiciary Committee following The New York Times report Rosenstein had openly discussed secretly recording Trump and the possibility of the Cabinet using the 25th Amendment to oust the president.

Rosenstein has denied the report, and Trump on Tuesday said he had no plans to fire his deputy AG following a conversation the pair had.

The Oversight and Government reform committee is also looking to question Rosenstein behind closed doors as part of its investigation into the conduct of the FBI and DOJ during probes of Trump's suspected links to Russia and of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
