Rosenstein No Longer Expected To Appear Before Congress

  • Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will not face Congress this week to testify about reports that he offered to wear a wire during meetings with President Donald Trump.
  • Republican lawmakers previously said they expected Rosenstein to show up for a closed-door hearing to discuss the reports.
  • Rosenstein met Monday with Trump, who said he has no plans to fire the DOJ’s No. 2.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is no longer expected to testify before Congress this week about reports that he offered to wear a wire in meetings with President Donald Trump.

“We have many questions for Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and expect answers to those questions. There is not at this time a confirmed date for a potential meeting,” an aide to the House Judiciary Committee told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Don’t think he is coming,” one Republican lawmaker said Wednesday regarding Rosenstein.

The same lawmaker told TheDCNF on Tuesday that Rosenstein was likely to testify before the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform Committees to answer questions about claims he discussed wearing a wire during his interactions with Trump.

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus had called on Rosenstein to testify about his remarks, which were first reported by The New York Times on Sept. 21.

The conservative lawmakers, including North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, have been staunch critics of Rosenstein because of his failure to respond to requests for documents related to the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia probe.

TheNYT reported Rosenstein made an offer to wear a wire in May 2017 in meetings with other Justice Department and FBI officials. He also allegedly discussed using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
