Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein may be recusing himself from the DOJ’s Russia investigation.
Recent reports say that Rosenstein has told colleagues he might have to step away from the probe, but it is unclear why.
President Trump recently sent a tweet seemingly aimed at the Deputy AG, saying he is being investigated by the man who told him to fire the FBI Director.
Rosenstein drafted the letter for the basis of Comey’s firing and many believe he is now caught in the President’s cross-hairs because he appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Many say if Rosenstein recuses himself, then maybe Mueller should recuse himself as well.
