Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has requested to meet with the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to POLITICO sources.
Rosenstein reportedly arrived at the Senate Intelligence Committee space with a security detail on Thursday, as the committee panel was conducting a hearing. Rosenstein's request comes after President Trump's sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Trump said Comey "wasn't doing a good job" in his bureau role, and cited a three-page letter from Rosenstein questioning Comey's abilities as backing for his decision.
