Rod Rosenstein to Testify on Reports of Secret Trump Recording Plans

Rod Rosenstein to Testify on Reports of Secret Trump Recording Plans

House Judiciary Committee Chair Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Chair Trey Gowdy announced Thursday, Rosenstein will be appear for a transcribed interview on Wednesday.

Several Judiciary and Oversight members thought Rosenstein was going to appear before the panels October 11, but the date was never officially agreed to as Rosenstein allegedly did not want to sit for a transcribed interview before the full committees but offered to do a briefing instead. He echoed his calls for the deputy attorney general to resign in a series of tweets earlier in the day Thursday.

"Repeatedly over the last several months, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (pictured above left) has not cooperated with congressional oversight attempts and failed to be transparent about his conduct", Meadows (above right) said in a statement to LifeZette. The transcript will then be reviewed by the Intelligence Community to avoid the public dissemination of classified or otherwise protected information.

There were around 500-700 people at the spot. "District authorities have been mobilised on war footing", CM Singh tweeted. Revenue Minister Sukhbinder Sarkaria deputed to immediately reach Amritsar to oversee rescue operations.

President Donald Trump appointed Rosenstein soon after entering the Oval Office, but their relationship has been stormy ever since. "We need to get to the bottom of these very serious claims".

Democrats have called the meeting with Rosenstein part of a Republican effort to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible co-ordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

People should have faith in whatever the findings of Robert Mueller's investigation are, Rosenstein told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published Wednesday, as he waved off Republican and conservative attacks of the probe. Rosenstein staunchly denied this. Over the course of the probe, which began a year ago, Mueller and his team have looked for evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, as well as possible collusion or obstruction of justice on Trump's part.
