President Trump has said he will not fire Rod Rosenstein ahead of showdown talks between the pair on Air Force One over news reports that the deputy attorney general plotted against him.
Tensions between Trump and Rosenstein, who were due to meet 11 days ago, appear to have eased but the deputy attorney general will have to respond to accusations he spoke about secretly recording Trump and invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.
As he was leaving the White House before noon Monday en route to board Air Force One to fly to Orlando, reporters asked Trump if he had plans to fire Rosenstein. “No, I don’t,” he replied. With Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusing himself from the Russia investigation, Rosenstein, the number two at the Justice Department, oversees Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion during the 2016 presidential election.
