"At the request of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories", said Sanders. At that moment, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was deeply suspicious of Rosenstein's role in the decision, and the Justice Department was anxious it had lost credibility with Congress for giving Trump a memo that said the Federal Bureau of Investigation needed new leadership.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has reportedly resigned.

Rosenstein visited the White House on Monday and met with Chief of Staff John Kelly with the expectation that he would be fired, sources told ABC News, but he remained in the post as of Monday afternoon.

The allegations, depicting a panic-stricken No. 2 official at the Justice Department who has been a target of the president in the past, immediately raised questions about Rosenstein's future and how Trump would react.

Blake goes on to note that the White House earlier this year claimed that former Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin willingly resigned, whereas Shulkin has insisted that he was sacked and did not resign voluntarily.

He has always been under scrutiny by lawmakers and the White House over his handling of the Mueller probe.

Rosenstein says his comments are being incorrectly reported and that anything he said was meant to be sarcastic.

Sekulow's comments on Monday reflect an ongoing campaign from President Trump's legal team, which includes Rudy Giuliani, to call for an end to Mueller's probe.

The paper says he also suggested removing the president from office by invoking the 25th Amendment to have the Cabinet remove the president.

It comes three days after Mr Rosenstein was reported to have suggested the idea of secretly recording Mr Trump previous year to expose chaos within the White House.

After roasting Rosenstein for five minutes about how the Mueller investigation still has not produced evidence that Trump acted inappropriately regarding Russian Federation, the congressman implored him to reveal any information he had so that the country could move on. Other outlets have reported that the remarks were made in jest. "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" he has written. He received mixed messages. With Rosenstein's exit, solicitor general Noel Francisco would oversee the investigation.

Congressional Republicans, Democrats and some Trump aides have warned for months that the president shouldn't fire Rosenstein, saying such a move could lead to impeachment proceedings if the Democrats retake the House in the upcoming midterms.

He was also accused of making critical comments about the United States president.

Rosenstein had been overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation because Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from the probe. Get to work on ROSENSTEIN!
