Trump delivers speech to police chiefs in Orlando

Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein

On the campaign trail and while in the White House, he has often told the story of a Chicago motorcycle cop, "a tough cookie" in the president's words, who told him he could solve the city's gun violence problems "in a couple of days" if cops were allowed to do their jobs.

As the plan was taking shape, Rosenstein went to the White House expecting he would be fired but wound up staying in his job.

Washington was briefly abuzz on September 24 when Rosenstein headed to the White House to meet with chief of staff John Kelly, but reports that the retired Marine Corps general was handing him a pink slip turned out to be inaccurate.

Rosenstein has denied the claims.

Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller, has so far been steadfast in trying to protect the investigation as it digs ever deeper into Trump´s inner circle.

Democratic members - and a shrinking list of Republicans - cite Rosenstein's management of the Russian Federation probe to warn firing him would create a "constitutional crisis". The president said his conversation with Rosenstein went "great". "I have a very good relationship". He survived again on Monday.

President Trump: "Thank you as well to our Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for being here".

The president frequently brings up the IL city when he's talking about crime, and he suggested Chicago consider bringing back the controversial policy used by former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani, who is also Trump's lawyer. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Man uses $100,000 meteorite as doorstop for decades
David says the man who sold him the barn described the incredible tale of the meteorite making an impact crater in the backyard. The man also has agreed to give 10 percent of the potential sale value to CMU for the study of earth and atmospheric sciences.

President Donald Trump says he doesn't have plans to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Should Democrats take the House in November's midterm elections, such talk from a senior Democratic leader could spawn impeachment proceedings.

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

Rosenstein's status has been in question since reports surfaced last month that he had talked about recording Trump to expose chaos inside the White House. The Justice Department in the Trump administration has said reducing violent crime and supporting local enforcement are priorities.

Trying to appease conservative House Republicans who have threatened Rosenstein with impeachment proceedings, the deputy AG has agreed to talk to them in a private session.

"The crime spree is a awful blight on that city, and we'll do everything possible to get it done", Trump said.

Sources told Fox News that the meeting where Rosenstein allegedly made the comments about wearing a "wire" took place at the Justice Department on May 16, 2017.
