  • The Republican Chairman of the Judiciary Committee Bob
    Goodlatte asked Rod Rosenstein for a meeting to discuss a report
    that the deputy attorney general said he was willing to secretly
    record President Donald Trump.
  • The report The New York Times published on September 21 cited
    sources who said Rosenstein wanted to expose the chaos in the
    White House and potentially build a case for invoking the 25th
    Amendment to remove Trump from office. 
  • Rosenstein denied the assertion multiple times. He’s expected
    to meet one-on-one with Trump to talk about it. Trump indicated
    this week that he has little desire to fire Rosenstein, who
    currently oversees the special counsel Robert Mueller, the career
    prosecutor conducting the Russia investigation.

“There are many questions we have for Mr. Rosenstein,
including questions about allegations made against him in a
recent news article,” Goodlatte said in a
statement
 published on his official website Friday. The
two men agreed to meet one another in the next couple of
weeks. 

Rosenstein denied all assertions that he suggested spying on
Trump or seeking his removal from office.

He’s expected to meet one-on-one with Trump to talk about it.
Trump indicated this week that
he would prefer not to fire Rosenstein
, who currently
oversees the special counsel Robert Mueller, the career
prosecutor conducting the
Russia investigation
