Skip to comments.Rosenstein to face lawmakers on Capitol Hill next week

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will speak to congressional leaders next week behind closed doors to address reports that he discussed wearing a wire to secretly record President Donald Trump and recruited Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy said in a statement Thursday that Rosenstein has agreed to be interviewed by the Republican and Democratic leaders of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees on October 24, in what will be his first appearance on Capitol Hill after he nearly departed the Justice Department last month amid the fallout over his comments about a wire and the 25th Amendment. The interview will be held behind closed doors in a secure setting, the lawmakers said, but a transcript will be released once it is scrubbed by the intelligence community for sensitive information. But the interview with just the four committee leaders and a court reporter may not stem the growing criticism of Rosenstein from Trump's closest Republican congressional allies, who have been demanding Rosenstein appear so they can grill the deputy attorney general.

Rotten Rod will be a no show again.
Rod, tell them what we coached you to say and just stick your chin out and take the heat from them.
Rosenslime: I AM sticking my chin out now!
Handlers: Oh, yeah, sorry, Rod. Oops!
how about an unredacted transcript?
Under oath, or not?
Rod needs to resign on about November 10 and/or be indicted on that day.
While Rod is ensconced in his closed door meeting, Trump should release all the unredacted documents that Rod has been marking up the past year.
Will he use squeaky upspeak when he testifies?
Trump flipped Rosenstein.
On AirForce One, Rosenstein came clean to Trump, and Trump forgave him and offered him a deal:
Force Mueller to end his investigation and I will protect you for talking about taping me and attempting the 25th amendment ploy. After all, you didnt know me then.
Viola! The Mueller investigation is finished.
Isn’t CNN’s Laura Jarrett the daughter of Valerie Jarrett?
So one day after the midterms, Mueller files his report, closes his investigation and everything is fine? Not so fast. I still want Rosenweasel fired.
Trump flipped Rosenstein.
Your theory. Correct?
But an interesting one. Could be the case.
Yes, this is my theory only. It seems to fit with current events.
Good article on this.
That is correct. Only CNN would hire her.
Was hoping for him to be drawn and quartered with his head on a pike in front of the Justice Department...call me a softie.
I share the sentiment. But for PDJT, this is bigger than retribution for one person.
If PDJT can turn Rosenstein, and convince him to end the Mueller investigation, it is good for the country.
Obviously, when all this becomes public, Rosenstein will have to resign.
Pardon my sarcastic prognostication: Nothing, NOTHING, will come of this. "Behind closed doors" is politic-speak for, "we're gonna do it, but would rather not."
Think about it... when was the last time you heard important, opinion shaping news coming from a 'behind closed doors' meeting?
