Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein leaves Air Force One with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as he arrives aboard Air Force One with President Trump in Orlando, Florida, U.S. October 8, 2018.
And he blamed "evil" people for almost sinking his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, saying, "It was a disgraceful situation".
President Donald Trump was in Florida on Monday delivering a speech to law enforcement officers.
The president frequently brings up the IL city when he's talking about crime, and he suggested Chicago consider bringing back the controversial policy used by former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani, who is also Trump's lawyer.
The report claimed Rosenstein made the suggestions in spring 2017 after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and the president met privately in the Oval Office with then-Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. I look forward to being with him.
Trump also said reducing crime "begins with respecting law enforcement".
"We just had a very nice talk".
The speculation over Rosenstein's future concerned Democrats, who feared that a dismissal could lead to Trump curtailing Mueller's probe.
Thank you as well to our Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for being here.
Boarding Marine One Monday morning, the President told members of the press that he and Rosenstein will be "talking on the plane" and noted that they "actually have a very good relationship".
Critics predicted disaster, but Gotham's murder rate continued to fall even as cops cut back on stops - a point Hizzoner hammered home in a tweet after Trump spoke.
On the tarmac in Orlando, Trump said the conversation with Rosenstein was "great!"
House Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte says he plans to subpoena the Justice Department for memos Andrew McCabe wrote during his tenure as acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
Besides the meeting with Trump, Rosenstein has also agreed to a private meeting with House Republicans who want to question him about his reported statements on the president. "I can tell you that if he does not, there are a number of us that are standing by really with impeachment documents that say we cannot have this kind of activity continue at DOJ".
