He can and will (as authorized by Department of Justice regulations) file a report on his findings with the attorney general (or, since Attorney General Sessions is, in this case, recused, with the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein).

"Of course, we're all on your team, Mr. President", Rosenstein told Trump, the sources said. Rosenstein is supervising the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation and he has drawn the ire of the President.

Pruitt slammed Trump in 2016 interview
Scott Pruitt: And unapologetically. "I don't echo that today at all". "There's been a dramatic spike in the last days", he said. Pat Campbell: It's amusing because I had a conversation with my dad not long ago, and my dad is an immigrant.

The meeting took place just days before Rosenstein was scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. On the subject of Mueller's investigation, CNN reported, Rosenstein demurred.

Rosenstein was meeting with Trump in an effort to garner the president's support to fight a request by Nunes to access sensitive documents from the Justice Department. Trump, however, had other things on his mind-namely Rosenstein's upcoming testimony.

Quiksilver CEO Disappears Off French Coast
He is a former worldwide surfer for France who joined Quiksilver 30 years ago at their European HQ in Saint-Jean-de-Luz. In France, Agnes served as the European headquarters chief prior to becoming the CEO in 2015 of the entire business.

Many noticed that if this exchange truly happened, then the DOJ official may have lied to Congress. And he wanted to know whether Rosenstein was "on my team". However, it was not clear what Trump meant by his questions or how Rosenstein interpreted them. With much of the Steele dossier unverified, at least to the public, Republicans have accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice of overstepping and bias meant to undermine Trump's presidency.

But Republicans have urged Trump not to hastily dismiss Rosenstein due to the political optics and due process, according to The Hill. But he testified that he never received any "improper orders" from Trump and denied that anyone ever asked him to pledge his loyalty, dating back to his time in the Bush administration.

The Tar Heels made 20 of their 24 free throws (83.3 percent) and had a better effective field goal percentage (0.657 vs. 0.580). After both teams missed shots, Reed assisted on an Elijah Thomas layup to put Clemson ahead by five with 29 seconds left.

"The president expects people who are serving in his administration to be loyal to the country and to be loyal to the administration", she told Fox News. One source told CNN that the president has made comments such as "let's fire him, let's get rid of him".
