(FOX NEWS) –President Trump is scheduled to meet with Rod Rosenstein on Thursday, the White House said, seeming to tamp down speculation that the deputy attorney general faces the prospect of an immediate firing over a damaging press report.
The No. 2 Justice official, who frequently finds himself in the political crosshairs due to his role overseeing the special counsel’s Russia probe and involvement in other controversies, was the subject of numerous conflicting reports late Monday morning.
One initial report indicated the embattled official had already quit, while sources told Fox News and other outlets that he was heading to the White House expecting to be fired — in the wake of a story claiming he suggested wearing a “wire” against Trump and invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office last year.
But the White House put out a brief statement saying Rosenstein and Trump will meet Thursday, apparently to continue discussing that story, when the president returns from New York.
