Washington: House committees to interview Rod Rosenstein behind closed doors

Special Counsel Robert Mueller leaves a meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington

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

Despite bipartisan calls for the report to be released to the public, it remains unclear whether the document will be shared with all Americans are simply sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The regulations of the investigation permit Mueller to reveal his findings only to his U.S. Justice Department supervisor, who now is deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.

Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., announced late Thursday that they and the top Democrats on both committees would interview Rosenstein on October 24.

"And if I were Congress, I'd be having Mr. Mueller come in and testify". The transcript of the proceeding will be released to the public after a review by the intelligence community to scrub any classified information.

"He has not co-operated with Congress, failed to be transparent about his actions, and shown a lack of candour in the way he's characterized a number of events", Meadows tweeted.

Rosenstein seemed like he was a lock to be fired or to resign from his post just a couple of weeks ago after the New York Times claiming he discussed invoking the 25th Amendment and suggested wearing a wire to record the president.

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". Lawmakers said Baker did not back away from those claims when he gave a closed-door deposition to the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

If Rod Rosenstein is fired, what happens to the Russian Federation investigation? The report notes that Rosenstein apparently has encouraged Mueller to "wrap up the investigation as expeditiously as possible". He denied all of it and eventually met with President Donald Trump on Air Force One.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is ready to deliver his key findings - but not until after the midterms - in the investigation into Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, according to two USA officials.
