Trump defends Kavanaugh nomination, may delay Rosenstein meeting

Trump defends Kavanaugh nomination, may delay Rosenstein meeting”

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein now is inclined to stay in his job, which includes overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, but it all comes down to how President Donald Trump acts in a pivotal meeting on Thursday, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Mr. Trump called Mr. Rosenstein and they spoke for a few minutes Thursday, agreeing to reschedule a meeting that had originally been scheduled for Thursday afternoon, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said. Trump, who has defended Kavanaugh at length, said he did not want to miss Ford's testimony.

"My preference would be to keep him and to let him finish up", Trump said, without explaining what he would like Rosenstein to finish working on.

One media report on Monday indicated the embattled official had already quit as the No. 2 Justice official, while sources told Fox News and other outlets Rosenstein was headed to the White House expecting to be fired. But he has now spoken to Trump on the phone at least twice and remained in his post.

"Not wanting to fire Rod Rosenstein is consistent with what I have understood for weeks, not just days", said Rep Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican who talks to Trump often. As the Washington Post reports, Rashidi, a Kurdish journalist who reports for Kurdistan 24, wanted to ask Trump about United States relations with the Kurds, some 30 million stateless people who live across Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey, and have helped the USA in the fight against ISIS. He said he never said it, he said he doesn't believe it.

"We have caught people doing things that are bad.

I would much prefer keeping Rod Rosenstein, much prefer". "He said he did not say it, he said he does not believe, and nobody in this room believes" the part about the 25th amendment. "Many people say I have the right to, absolutely, fire him". "I've said this all along: A special prosecutor - the special counsel, excuse me, should be free to complete his work".

"I think I will stop short of that", Landler said. That goes without saying.

"I don't want to do anything that gets in the way of this very important Supreme Court pick". Yeah. Yeah, yeah, sorry, not Rosenstein.
