Trump says he's not firing Rod Rosenstein

Emanuel announced he would try to negotiate an out-of-court agreement to overhaul the Police Department - a move blasted by reform advocates who said a federal judge's oversight was needed to bring lasting change to the force.

President Donald Trump says he doesn't have plans to fire Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.

Two senior FBI officials thought that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was "serious" when he discussed secretly recording President Donald Trump and invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office previous year, a senior attorney for the bureau revealed in secret congressional testimony. "The press wants to know, 'What did you talk about?' We had a very good talk, I will say".

Rod Rosenstein had appeared close to being fired following United States media reports, which he denied, that he discussed secretly recording Donald Trump. "I actually have a good relationship", he said.

"The safety of Chicago depends on it", Sessions said.

The flight provided an opportunity for their most extensive conversation since news reports last month that Rosenstein had discussed the possibilities in early 2017 of secretly recording Trump to expose chaos in the White House and invoking constitutional provisions to get him removed from office.

"I didn't know Rod before, but I've gotten to know him", Trump said at the White House. Rosenstein denied making such statements.

Porcello has been more effective on the road than at home this year, which seems to bode well for the Red Sox's current situation. Eovaldi was 3-3 with a 3.33 in 11 starts and one relief appearance for the Red Sox , who acquired him from Tampa Bay in July.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein flew with Trump aboard Air Force One on Monday, where they spoke for almost 45 minutes and made amends.

Rosenstein's job at the Justice Department, which includes oversight of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election, seems secure - for now.

So Rosenstein's departure, possibly putting someone more pliable in his place, would set off alarm bells over the future independence of a probe which has the potential to rock the entire presidency.

As he left the White House for Orlando, Trump was asked by a reporter if he had any plans to fire Rosenstein. Upon landing, Rosenstein was seen smiling and appeared at ease as he walked down the front stairs of Air Force One alongside Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly.

Rosenstein and Trump had been expected to meet at the White House days later, but that meeting was put off so that the president could focus on a confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Senior FBI and Justice Department officials also used the dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

It has been rumored Trump might fire Rosenstein because of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation that is looking at whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation. Advisers had also cautioned Trump against doing anything dramatic in the weeks before the midterm elections next month.
