Trump Comes To Orlando To Speak To Law Enforcement

Rosenstein to fly with Trump to Florida on Monday, official says

President Trump said he has a "very good relationship" with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and has no plans to fire him.

Trump and Rosenstein spoke the week after the report came out and had planned to meet to discuss the issue further but that meeting was postponed, the White House said at the time.

Trump told reporters as he was leaving the White House Monday that he doesn't have plans to fire the Justice Department's No. 2 official.

The White House says that the President's Monday appearance was not a campaign rally, despite the fact that he has thrown his support behind Governor Rick Scott's run for Senate and Florida Republican Gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis.

Trump faces mounting pressure from the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election. The Justice Department in the Trump administration has said reducing violent crime and supporting local enforcement are priorities. The same day, Trump and Rosenstein spoke by phone while the president was at an United Nations conference in NY. He survived again on Monday.

Both men will likely see their futures re-evaluated after the elections, Trump advisers have said.

The President confirmed Monday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will travel aboard Air Force One en route to the convention.

Sen. Ron Wyden, R-Ore., said recently that if Trump fires Rosenstein "for the objective of protecting himself from the Mueller investigation, that would represent high crimes and misdemeanors". Despite protests, Trump backed him the whole time.

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.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump and Rosenstein talked about the controversy during their 45-minute-long conversation on the flight, where Kelly and another Department of Justice official, Ed O'Callaghan, were also present.

"The press wants to know, 'What did you talk about?'" Trump said at the start of his speech after he thanked Rosenstein for being there and noted the intense media interest.

The use of "stop-and-frisk" has since been dramatically reduced in NY, with fewer than 11,000 stops reported in 2017 compared to more than 680,000 in 2011. "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".
