Republican Allies Warn Trump: Now's Not Time to Fire Rosenstein

DOJ Source Claims Rod Rosenstein Was Joking

Deputy AG Rosenstein heading to White House expecting to be fired, sources say

Some of his staunchest allies seemed to goad him to do it. Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham and Jeanine Pirro posted messages on Twitter declaring Rosenstein must swiftly be dismissed.

But in Washington, more cautious voices warned of outcry on Capitol Hill if Trump moved to fire the man who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation. "The statement was sarcastic and was never discussed with any intention of recording a conversation with the president". Another official said that Rosenstein made the comments about taping Trump in jest.

Rosenstein's alleged allusion to the 25th amendment of the US Constitution, which provides for removing a president if they are judged unfit for office, came just after Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey - invoking a memo written by Rosenstein.

The report, which Rosenstein denies, claimed he voice a plan to attempt to organize the cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment against the president during the fallout of his firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Graham has previously said Trump could replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions but only after the midterm elections, a move that would allow Trump to install someone else to oversee the Mueller probe. While Laura Ingraham initially urged Trump to fire Rosenstein, Sean Hannity pleaded with the president not to act.

The GOP is also concerned firing him may further jeopordise the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court which remains of a knife edge with news that Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexual assault, will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

The president did not respond specifically to the shock news reports, but at a political rally in Missouri late Friday he referred to "what's being exposed at the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation". "Give Rod a chance to explain whether it's true and the context in which it was said". At a rally in Missouri on Friday night, the president said that "95 percent" of Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation employees support him, but "you've got some real bad ones" still inside.

The report "must not be used as a pretext for the corrupt goal of firing Rosenstein in order to install an official who will allow the president to interfere with the Special Counsel's investigation", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted.
