Trump Keeps Rosenstein Despite Reported Recording, Removal Talk

  • U.S. President Donald Trump shakes hands with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the conclusion of a roundtable on immigration and the gang MS-13 at the Morrelly Homeland Security Center in Bethpage New York U.S

The documents reportedly chronicle conversations in which Rosenstein discussed the idea of secretly recording Trump for the goal of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

President Trump met aboard Air Force One with Rod Rosenstein on Monday, for a long-awaited sit-down in the wake of last month's bombshell report that the deputy attorney general suggested wearing a wire to secretly record the president and even invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

He said the policy worked in NY in the late 1990s and early 2000s when it was put into action by former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, who is now Mr. Trump's personal attorney.

And he blamed "evil" people for almost sinking his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, saying, "It was a disgraceful situation".

The Republican real estate billionaire is infuriated by what he says is Special Counsel Robert Mueller's "witch hunt" into whether Moscow conspired with his campaign in the shock 2016 election win. "But we had a very good talk, I will say".

Rosenstein is accompanying Mr. Trump on his way to Orlando to deliver remarks to the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Convention Monday.

President Trump came to Orlando for an official Presidential visit to address support for local law enforcement.

The criminal aliens to whom Trump referred include, as he said, "thousands of vicious gang members" and "MS 13 predators".

Rescuers detect possible sign of life under quake-hit hotel
The death toll from the quake and tsunami that hit the Indonesian province of Celebes a week ago reached 1,571 on Friday. Rescue efforts have been hampered by a lack of heavy machinery, severed transport links and the scale of the damage.

Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller, has so far been steadfast in trying to protect the investigation as it digs ever deeper into Trump's inner circle.

He did say that he had directed the U.S. Attorney General's office to "immediately go to the great city ion Chicago to help straighten out the bad shooting wave". Senior FBI and Justice Department officials also used the dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

"He's a great person and it's very, very unfair what happened to him", the president said.

Rosenstein left the White House with his job that day.

The White House and Justice Department didn't immediately respond to requests for more details on what Trump had asked Sessions to do.

The one idea Trump presented to accomplish this was re-tooling the city's use of stop-and-frisk, the policy of conducting warrantless stops to search people for weapons. Advisers had also cautioned Trump against doing anything dramatic in the weeks before the midterm elections next month.

The Justice Department began preparing for a future without him: Matt Whitaker, Attorney General Jeff Sessions's chief of staff, would take over as deputy attorney general, and Noel Francisco, the solicitor general, would take over supervision of the Russian Federation probe.

The president mentioned Rosenstein during his speech, thanking him for traveling with him.
