Rod Rosenstein: Russia inquiry chief set for Trump showdown
September 24, 2018 4:14 pm
Rod Rosenstein, the US deputy attorney general, is set for crunch talks with Donald Trump on Thursday, amid doubts over his future in the job.
The two already spoke on Monday to discuss reports that Mr Rosenstein had talked last year about ousting the president and secretly taping him.
Mr Rosenstein oversees the inquiry into alleged collusion by the Trump team with Russia during the 2016 election.
The president said Thursday’s meeting would be “determining what’s going on”.
“We want to have transparency, we want to have openness and I look forward to meeting with Rod at that time,” he added, speaking in New York where he is attending the annual UN General Assembly.
