Rosenstein expecting to be fired, heads to White House

DOJ Source Claims Rod Rosenstein Was Joking

But let me clear about this: "Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment".

The Times said Rosenstein told Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials the secret recordings could be used to expose the chaos of the administration after revelations that Trump asked Comey to pledge loyalty to him and also divulged classified information to Russians in the Oval Office.

Rosenstein, the No. 2 Justice Department official, verbally resigned to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, the report said, citing an unidentified source with knowledge of the matter.

Trump has been reported on numerous occasion to have weighed firing Rosenstein to tighten his grip on that investigation, which the deputy attorney general has overseen since Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the matter over his own contacts with Russian Federation shortly after Trump took office.




Maher joked, "Now that the 25th Amendment, the one about removing a president who's incapacitated, keeps popping up in the news, someone has to explain to me if it was written specifically for this guy, then who is it for?" As for Rosenstein's future, Trump says, "We will make a determination".

Trump has repeatedly dismissed the Mueller probe as a "witch hunt" created to delegitimize his election victory and undermine his presidency.

The 25th Amendment provides for the removal of a sitting president if he or she is judged unfit to carry out the duties of the office.

A Fox News poll released on Sunday showed support for Mr Trump's pick was wavering among the public with just 40 per cent of voters saying they would confirm, down five per cent from a month ago.
