President Trump will meet with Rod Rosenstein on Thursday, the White House said Monday, amid reports of the deputy attorney general’s imminent ouster.
“At the request of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday in a statement.
“Because the President is at the United Nations General Assembly and has a full schedule with leaders from around the world, they will meet on Thursday when the President returns to Washington, D.C.,” she said.
There has been broad speculation about the future of Rosenstein’s job after The New York Times reported on Friday that the deputy attorney general suggested secretly taping the president last year and recruiting Cabinet officials to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office for being unfit.
Rosenstein has aggressively denied the report as inaccurate, Rosenstein was at the White House on Monday to meet with Chief of Staff John Kelly but no one knows the context of their conversation.
