Trump says he no plans to fire Rosenstein

Asked if Rosenstein still has the job, Gidley replied, "Yes".

Rosenstein and Trump delayed a planned September 27 one-on-one meeting until Monday to allow Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's contentious confirmation process to play out.

After the flight, Trump described his conversation with Rosenstein to reporters as "great".

Rosenstein has denied the September 21 New York Times report as "inaccurate and factually incorrect".

Rosenstein assumed supervision of the investigation after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself because of his own contacts with Russia's ambassador to Washington while serving as a Trump campaign adviser became public.

"I have directed the Attorney General's office to immediately go to the great city of Chicago to help straighten out the bad shooting wave", he said. "I have a very good relationship". The same day, Trump and Rosenstein spoke by phone while the president was at an United Nations conference in NY. He survived again on Monday.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) issued a subpoena to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on September 27, for the McCabe memos.

They went on: 'As far as she's concerned, the hat she wore [in Kenya] was just a hat, so people need to get over it. Melania Trump has claimed her critics only focus on her wardrobe , rather than what her actions.

The president frequently brings up the IL city when he's talking about crime, and he suggested Chicago consider bringing back the controversial policy used by former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani, who is also Trump's lawyer.

Trump had previously said that he would prefer not to fire the Justice Department's No. 2 official and that Rosenstein had told him he did not say the remarks attributed to him. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"Any effort to undermine the Mueller investigation will be obstruction of justice", Hoyer said. The Justice Department in the Trump administration has said reducing violent crime and supporting local enforcement are priorities.

Besides the meeting with Trump, Rosenstein has also agreed to a private meeting with House Republicans who want to question him about his reported statements on the president.

Other Trump allies in the House are even saying the matter could warrant Congress doing what the president opted against this week.

Last year, the President signaled permissiveness toward police roughing up suspects, telling a group of law enforcement officers: "When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, and I said, 'Please don't be too nice'".

Sources told Fox News that the meeting where Rosenstein allegedly made the comments about wearing a "wire" took place at the Justice Department on May 16, 2017.
