President Donald Trump has declared a reprieve for Rod Rosenstein, saying he has no plans to fire his deputy attorney general.
Rosenstein’s future has been the source of intense speculation since news reports last month that in early 2017 he had discussed the possibilities of secretly recording Trump to expose chaos in the White House and invoking constitutional provisions to have him removed from office.
Trump traveled with Rosenstein to an international police chiefs’ conference in Florida Monday.
As he returned to the White House, Trump told reporters: “I’m not making any changes. We just had a very nice talk. We actually get along.”
Rosenstein later attended the ceremonial swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.unb
