Two White House officials say President Donald Trump is not considering firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Earlier Friday, Trump declined to express confidence in the Justice Department's second-in-command.

The officials say there is no consideration or expectation for Rosenstein to leave the job. They were not authorized to discuss internal deliberations publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump cleared the way — over Rosenstein's objection — for the release of a GOP memo that alleges misconduct by the Justice Department and the FBI.

Rosenstein oversees special counsel Robert Mueller, and has been a growing target for the president's frustration with Mueller's ongoing probe into potential collusion by Trump affiliates with Russian nationals during the 2016 presidential campaign.
