Trump reportedly asked Rosenstein if he's 'on my team'

Scaramucci doesn’t think Trump should testify in Russia probe

"You figure that one out", Trump said when asked if he still had confidence in Rosenstein. He demurred on the direction of the Russian Federation investigation, which Rosenstein has ultimate authority over now that his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has recused himself.

The letter to Trump was signed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democrat-California, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Democrat-New York, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, Democrat-Illinois, and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, Democrat-Maryland.

"Of course, we're all on your team, Mr. President", Rosenstein replied, according to CNN.

Two White House officials told the Associated Press last night that Trump is not considering firing Rosenstein.

Trump used the memo's release Saturday to tweet that it vindicates him in the Mueller probe, which he called "an American disgrace". Rosenstein, Sessions and Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, the third-highest-ranking Justice official, came together publicly for the first time to kick off an all-day summit on combating human trafficking held in the department's Great Hall. Republicans contend that the memo reveals surveillance abuses by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department.

Photos from the scene show a man being put into a police vehicle , wearing an Italian flag draped over his shoulders. A police tweet added: "Police operation in progress: stay away from the open, avoiding places outdoors".

The department says if Manafort believes he's being unfairly prosecuted, then he can file a motion in his criminal case to seek to have it dismissed. But no department is flawless.

At the December meeting, the deputy attorney general appeared surprised by the President's questions, the sources said.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation in Moscow's efforts to influence the 2016 election. Now Wray is threatening to resign.

Again, though, Rosenstein isn't the one who approved the spying. He's tweeted his displeasure with Rosenstein's role in appointing the special counsel as far back as June.

And that is why I am going "full throttle" to legally destroy vicious establishment political hack Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his compromised and conflicted leftist prosecutorial staff, before they destroy President Donald Trump, his presidency, his administration, the nation and you and your loved ones' aspirations to continue to live in freedom and liberty. I'm still the President's wing-man, so I'm there with my boy. "Witch Hunt", Trump tweeted in June, in an apparent reference to Rosenstein. The lawsuit argues Rosenstein and Mueller overreached their authority in bringing the charges. And he wanted to know whether Rosenstein was "on my team". Rosenstein has declined to discuss the issue.

BBC accused of 'belittling' women over equal pay row
According to Gracie, the BBC last week offered her £45,000 of backpay, in a signal the broadcaster was acknowledging it was underpaying her for years.

"We spent the day helping to protect our nation and promote the rule of law", Rosenstein said. That may have given Trump a big opening for how to go about achieving the goal. When asked if he was considering firing Rosenstein, Trump refused to say either way. He disputed the notion that the probe is a "witch hunt".

Others said that Rosenstein hadn't done anything wrong by saying he was on the president's team.

So, was this memo put together to fire Rosenstein?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions praised his second-in-command, Rod Rosenstein, hours before on Friday.
