Deputy AG to brief Senate on Donald Trump’s firing of FBI’s James Comey

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief all members of the Senate on Thursday about President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey.

That’s the word from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office on Monday.

Last week, Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said he made a request for Rosenstein to answer lawmakers’ questions about his memo on Comey and the circumstances surrounding his dismissal.
