The White House announced Monday that President Trump would meet Thursday with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian election meddling, following rumors that Rosenstein might resign or be fired.

Trump and Rosenstein will discuss reports that Rosenstein last year talked about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office on the grounds that he was unfit to serve.

Rosenstein also reportedly discussed secretly taping his conversations with Trump. The two will meet after Trump returns from New York, where he is attending the United Nations General Assembly. “I spoke with Rod today, and we’ll see what happens,” Trump said.
