Rosenstein Will Speak to House Lawmakers Under Oath

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will be meeting with House lawmakers on Thursday for a transcribed interview following reports that he had planned to wear a wire to secretly record President Trump.

The interview will be conducted by House Judiciary Committee Chairmen Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Trey Gowdy (R-SC) along with Ranking Members Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Elijah Cummings (D-MD).

“A court reporter will be present to record all questions asked and answers provided,” Goodlatte and Gowdy announced in a statement Thursday. “The interview will be under oath. The transcript will then be reviewed by the Intelligence Community to avoid the public dissemination of classified or otherwise protected information. Once cleared, the transcript will be publicly available.”

Earlier Thursday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said that Rosenstein should resign "based on additional information we've learned over the last week” and his failure to cooperate with Congress.

Meadows and several other GOP lawmakers expressed frustration at Rosenstein’s unwillingness to appear before them. Some have even threatened to subpoena him.

The New York Times originally reported in September that Rosenstein had planned to secretly record Trump and had even discussed the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

Rosenstein and the Department of Justice disputed these reports and NBC News reported that Rosenstein's comments were attempts at sarcasm.
