Trump has no plan to fire Rosenstein


US President Donald Trump has said that he will not dismiss Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein despite speculation that the man overseeing the Russia probe was on the way out.

Rosenstein’s future was cast into the spotlight last month after the New York Times reported he had proposed invoking a constitutional amendment to remove the president from office. Rosenstein denied the report as “factually incorrect.”

Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday that he had no plans to fire the deputy attorney general.

The White House says Trump later had a 45-minute-long conversation with Rosenstein on the presidential plane during a flight to Florida.

In a speech at the state, Trump said he and Rosenstein had a “very good talk” during the plane ride, suggesting that their relationship was back on track.

The deputy attorney general is overseeing a probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into alleged collusion between Russia and Trump associates during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Dismissing Rosenstein could expose Trump to accusations of obstruction of justice, which would not bode well just weeks ahead of the midterm elections on November 6th.
