JUST IN: President Trump Announces Fate Of Rod Rosenstein


Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0


President Donald Trump announced on Monday that he had “no plans” of firing Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Speaking to a group of reporters at the White House, Trump was asked whether he planned to fire Rosenstein or if he will keep him on until at least after November’s midterm elections.

When asked about any plans to fire Rosenstein, Trump said, “No I don’t, no.”

“I actually have a good relationship with him,” the president said, referring to Rosenstein. “I didn’t know Rod before, but I’ve gotten to know him, and I get along very well with him.”

“I look forward to being with him, that’ll be very nice,” Trump said. “We’re going to be talking. We’ll be talking on the plane.”

Watch below:

Rosenstein, who was not present while Trump was speaking to reporters, is traveling on Air Force One with the president to Orlando, Florida, to speak with police chiefs about the importance of law enforcement in the U.S.

Trump saying he won’t fire Rosenstein comes after a bombshell report from The New York Times late last month alleged that Rosenstein implied to senior officials that he wanted to secretly record conversations he was having with Trump. The report also claims Rosenstein mentioned the idea of getting members of the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

Days after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey in May 2017, Rosenstein reportedly discussed wearing a “wire” to record conversations with Trump. He also brought up the idea of convincing Cabinet members to essentially orchestrate a coup against Trump.

The allegations are outlined in memos authored by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired months ago after the DOJ’s Inspector General determined he lied at least four times when asked about leaking sensitive information to the media during the 2016 election.

McCabe claims he does not know how the memos leaked to the Times, but many argue his history of feeding anti-Trump stories to the press says it all.

It cannot be underscored how explosive it would be if the allegations are true.

Never before in the history of this nation has there been allegations that the Deputy Attorney General discussed wearing a “wire” to secretly record the president and floated the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.

Rosenstein has denied the report, but it underscores what conservatives mean when they describe the “Deep State.

There’s more than enough credible evidence showing that top DOJ and FBI officials have gone to extraordinary lengths to block Trump’s agenda, advance the phony Russia “collusion” theories, and sabotage his presidency from within.

Many have argued that Trump would every right to fire Rosenstein if he wanted to. The DOJ’s N0. 2 has been anything but reliable and has allowed Mueller’s team unfettered powers for more than a year.

Trump appears to be standing by Rosenstein, for now. But all of that could change in the future if Mueller’s probe is allowed to drag out for years.
