Rod Rosenstein tells Donald Trump he's not a target in Mueller probe

Yet, despite Sessions' reported warning, other reports suggest that Trump has still not ruled out firing Rosenstein - with Axios reporting that Trump "hasn't cooled off on" the deputy AG and that he is still looking at possibly firing him.

Sessions' concerns were reportedly fueled by Trump taking a dim view of Rosenstein approving a recent Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on the president's personal attorney Michael Cohen.

The Washington Put up reported late Friday that Trump was livid at Rosenstein's approval of the Cohen raid and that Periods referred to as White Home counsel Donald McGahn and requested particulars of an April 12 assembly between Trump and Rosenstein on the White Home.

Bloomberg may have buried the lead when it comes to Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein telling President Trump he wasn't a target of the Russian Federation investigation.

While Trump has made Sessions a regular public punching bag, attacking him on multiple occasions, such a resignation would risk plunging the White House into crisis.

Rosenstein, who brought up the Mueller probe himself, offered the assurance during a meeting with Trump at the White House last Thursday, a development that helped tamp down the President's desire to remove Rosenstein or Mueller, the people said.

Rosenstein's status remains uncertain, but the pressure he is facing seemed to subside after last week.

If Rosenstein refused, Trump could fire Rosenstein, and direct the next official in line to fire Mueller.

"The way it's been characterized by senior administration officials is that the president is frustrated and casting about", the source said.

Trump allies in the White House and Fox News have been calling for the firing of Rod Rosenstein for months, incensed that he is allowing the probe into Russian meddling in the USA election to continue.

"I remember him joking at his going-away party that nine months was the average tenure for the deputy attorney general", Trusty said.

It would also be unnecessary: If even a halfway-compelling article of impeachment could be drafted in the House of Representatives, the president could just fire Rosenstein instead.

After the meeting, Trump told some of his closest advisers that it is not the right time to remove either man since he's not a target of the probe.

But even if that's the case, the decision would be hinging on Trump's personal jeopardy.

Sessions apparently conveyed his sentiments in a phone call with Don McGahn, the White House counsel.
