Trump reportedly asked Rosenstein if he was 'on my team'

Trump reportedly asked Rosenstein if he was 'on my team'

Rosenstein "appeared surprised" by Trump's questions, according to CNN. It is not clear what Trump meant or how Rosenstein interpreted the comment.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment when reached by the Daily News Wednesday afternoon.

However, the attending members of the House Judiciary Committee didn't ask Rosenstein any questions similar to Trump's alleged suggestions. California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the intelligence panel, authored a competing memo, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi accused the GOP of using the Nunes memo to undermine the special counsel investigation led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller. CNN has reported that Trump has been venting to his aides about Rosenstein in recent weeks and even raised the possibility of his removal.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway confirmed in a May interview after Comey was sacked that loyalty was an important part of the White House culture. "I think we should let Rosenstein, Mueller and everybody else do their jobs and wait to see what the outcome is".

Others reminded followers that Rosenstein is in charge of overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump has at times dismissed the probe as a politically motivated "witchhunt".

"Nobody has asked me to take a loyalty pledge, other than the oath of office", Rosenstein testified.

People briefed on the meeting said Rosenstein warned White House chief of staff John Kelly that releasing the memo could jeopardize classified information, and that FBI Director Chris Wray joined Rosenstein in the meeting, according to the Post. Trump has publicly denied that he asked McCabe who he voted for.

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.

There was no decision by the President at the meeting, the sources told CNN.
