Trump Asked Deputy AG If He Was 'On My Team'

"As long as you are following your oath of office", Rosenstein said, "you can also be faithful to the administration".

Sanders didn't offer clarity on Rosenstein's future, but said Trump has "great respect" for law enforcement officials and members of the United States intelligence community.

Rosenstein reportedly requested the president's assistance in handling document requests from House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). It was a ludicrous excuse for an action that the president later admitted was all about his opposition to the Russian Federation investigation.

Rosenstein, who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation, had visited Trump to ask for help combating demands for documents from House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, according to CNN.

Before the memo's release, Sen. The theory goes that Trump could then install a crony in Rosenstein's place, who could fire Mueller or quash in the Trump-Russia investigation. If President Trump is destroyed by Mueller and his lawless and deep state co-conspirators in the U.S. Department of Justice, its Federal Bureau of Investigation and the intelligence agencies, then the next president will likely be far worse than even Obama - who this week was seen in a photo embracing Black Muslim Jew and Christian-hater Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.

But the memo wastes little time mentioning the deputy attorney general.

He was shifted to Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences in Srinagar where he succumbed at 3 AM on Wednesday. "That is an unfortunate thing".

The memo also points out that the FISA process relies on government agencies to produce "all material and relevant facts", including "information potentially favorable to the target of the FISA application that is known by the government".

On Jan. 5, Rosenstein traveled to Florida to speak to the Palm Beach Forum Club about the rule of law.

The were jointed by House minority whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland, caucus chair Joe Crowley of NY, and Judiciary ranking member Jerry Nadler of NY, along with Senate Judiciary Committee ranking Member Dianne Feinstein of California and Senate Democratic whip Richard Durbin of IL.

During a trip to the White House in December, Trump allegedly asked Rosenstein if he was "on my team". And he underscored the document "reflects the judgments of its congressional authors" and not necessarily the White House.

"If I were a betting man, I'd bet against the president", one attorney said, while the other - who represents a high-ranking Trump official - added that he fully expects the indictment to be forthcoming for no other reason than to get Congress to take the matter seriously.

Trump used the memo's release Saturday to tweet that it vindicates him in the Mueller probe, which he called "an American disgrace".
