Mueller Ready To Issue Findings On Two Key Questions In Trump Probe

Mueller Ready To Issue Findings On Two Key Questions In Trump Probe

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has agreed to sit for a transcribed interview with leaders of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees October 24, the panels' chairmen announced Thursday evening.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has offered what The Wall Street Journal described on Wednesday as a "forceful defense" of the special counsel's ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election. The two Republican chairmen and top Democrats on the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees will interview him.

Goodlatte had said he would consider issuing a subpoena for Rosenstein's testimony, if he failed to show up for an interview. The transcript of the proceeding will be released to the public after a review by the intelligence community to scrub any classified information.

On Thursday, lawmakers' frustration over the deputy attorney general's failure to appear reached a boiling point.

Quoting a USA official, Bloomberg said Rosenstein had been pressing Mueller to conclude the investigation as soon as possible.

He also said that Trump knows he will continue to work as Deputy Attorney General "as long as he wants me to do this job" and that he "serve [s] at the pleasure of the president".

"It's time that Rod Rosenstein steps down". But to date, House GOP leaders have not gone as far as Meadows, Gaetz and other Trump allies, who have called for declassification of records related to the probe, and for Rosenstein's head - most recently with an unsuccessful attempt to push for his impeachment over the summer. Rosenstein staunchly denied this.

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller is set to issue findings of some of the core aspects of his investigation into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation shortly after the November midterm elections", writes Fox News. Because of Sessions' recusal, Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel and oversees that investigation.
