House asks Rosen­stein to ex­plain re­marks about ‘wiring’ Trump

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

A Repub­li­can House task force has agreed to meet with Deputy At­tor­ney Gen­eral Rod Rosen­stein for a closed­door meet­ing about his state­ments about Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, ac­cord­ing to a law­maker who had called for a hear­ing.

Rep. Mark Mead­ows, R-N.C., tweeted Fri­day that House lead­er­ship had agreed to call Rosen­stein “so he can ex­plain his al­leged com­ments on ‘wiring’ the pres­i­dent.”

If Rosen­stein fails to show up, he would be sub­poe­naed, said Mead­ows, a mem­ber of the Free­dom Cau­cus of sev­eral dozen con­ser­va­tive Repub­li­cans who have called for a hear­ing with Rosen­stein.
