Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whose job hangs in the balance, will meet with President Donald Trump on Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday.
“We’ll be determining what’s going on,” Trump said Monday afternoon before a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in New York. “We want to have transparency, we want to have openness. I look forward to meeting with him.” The president also said he had talked with Rosenstein earlier Monday.
Rosenstein had been expected to learn his fate during a visit to the White House on Monday, but, with Trump in New York for a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, any decision on his future was postponed. Rosenstein attended a regularly scheduled meeting at the White House and was still deputy attorney general when he left at midday.
