Scaramucci to Trump: Don't Fire Rosenstein Over the Memo

Trump Was Asked If He Trusts Rosenstein. The 5-Word Answer Will Keep Him Up Tonight

Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) told CNN's Jake Taper, host of "State of the Union" that the Nunes memo and the special counsel probe were "separate" issues.

The memo, written by committee Republicans and authorized for release by Trump, asserts among other things that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department improperly used a document funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC - via a research firm hired by a law firm - in the application for a warrant to surveil former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein looks on at a summit about combating human trafficking at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., February 2, 2018.

According to unnamed officials quoted by U.S. media, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and justice department did tell the court that information it had received from Mr Steele was politically motivated.

Devin Nunes, who commissioned the memo, said it showed "serious violations" of public trust and he hopes it will trigger reforms.

Democrats and some Republicans, however, have blasted the memo as a collection of cherry-picked claims that seek to undermine the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

On Friday morning, Rosenstein and other senior Justice officials carried on with their work as speculation swirled in Washington about the fallout from the memo's release. "Witch Hunt", Trump tweeted in June, in an apparent reference to Rosenstein. Rosenstein, Sessions and Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, the third-highest-ranking Justice official, came together publicly for the first time to kick off an all-day summit on combating human trafficking held in the department's Great Hall. However, many believe that President Donald Trump and his allies are engaged in an all-out assault on the very integrity of their institution.

At some point over the summer, Mueller's office interviewed Rosenstein, which put the investigators in the unusual position of interviewing the man who had authority over their investigation. James Comey likewise testified Trump asked him for loyalty before he abruptly fired the former FBI Director in May 2017. "I say investigate everything Russian Federation did, but admit that this was a really sloppy process".

Senior Democrats have warned President Donald Trump not to use a controversial memo as a "pretext" to fire the special counsel probing alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 USA election. "So I want to make sure you know where I stand and what I want us to do moving forward", he wrote. It was Rosenstein who appointed Mueller to his current assignment as Special Consul.
