Overseer of 'Russian Probe' Rod Rosenstein prepares to be fired by Trump

Overseer of 'Russian Probe' Rod Rosenstein prepares to be fired by Trump

"I don't think it's likely to happen", said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

A different team from the Department of Justice raided the office of Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

Asked on Monday why he didn't fire Mueller, Trump replied, "If you know the person in charge of the investigation, you know about that, Deputy Rosenstein, Rod Rosenstein".

The ad highlights special counsel Robert Mueller's career accomplishments and testimonials from Republican leadership expressing their confidence in Mueller's integrity and the need for his investigation to proceed. He tweeted that Rosenstein is the "most conflicted of all" because he had a role in firing FBI Director James Comey and the surveillance order of Trump campaign official Carter Page - both of which are true. "Does [Trump] have the power to get rid of Rod Rosenstein?"

Though Trump has indicated on April 11 that he sees Rosenstein as unfit to oversee the Russian probe because of a conflict of interest.

"I'm not aware of any plans to make those movements", Sanders told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos. "But we do have some real concerns with some of the activities and some of the scope that the investigation has gone", The Hill quoted Sanders as saying in an interview on Sunday night.

If Trump wants to fire Rosenstein only to disrupt Robert Mueller, that would be inappropriate and unwarranted, Gowdy said.
