After The New York Times reported Friday that Rosenstein had suggested secretly recording Trump to document the chaos of the White House in 2017 and had raised the issue of removing the president from office, it was not immediately clear how long Rosenstein would remain in his job. Trump announced that the two men would meet Thursday when he got back from New York.
“He will come back here, and there’s a lot on his docket including the meeting with the deputy attorney general,” Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, told Fox & Friends on Thursday morning, a few hours before the Senate Judiciary Committee where Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, were to testify.
“If it needs to get pushed a few hours or to the next day maybe it will,” Conway said of the meeting between Trump and Rosenstein. “But they are both committed to speaking with each other and resolving this once and for all.”
