>> The fate of Rod Rosenstein hanging in the balance until next week, as President Trump postponed his planned Thursday meeting with the Deputy Attorney General.>> Cuz I don't wanna do anything that gets in the way of this very important Supreme Court pick.>> That was Trump a day earlier, alluding to pushing off the tete-a-tete, so as not to clash with Thursday's testimony of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a woman accusing him of sexual assault.
Trump and Rosenstein are expected to discuss the recent New York Times report, claiming Rosenstein sought to secretly record Trump and possibly try to have him removed from office for being unfit. Rosenstein has denied the Times story as inaccurate and factually incorrect.>> Morning, Mr. Rosenstein. Has anyone asked you to resign?
>> Still, the story sparked speculation that Rosentein, who oversees Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election would resign or be fired by Trump. On Wednesday, Trump seemed disinclined to remove Rosenstein from his post.>> But my preference would be to keep him and to let him finish up.
You know I call it a witch hunt, and it is a witch hunt.>> Trump, who has ardently supported Kavanaugh, watched part of Blasey Ford's testimony on Air Force One.
