3:05 pm
rod rosenstein the deputy attorney general who is overseeing the investigation into donald trump for alleged collusion with russia he apparently offered a verbal resignation and that's some reports that we are seeing well we now have sarah huckabee sanders the white house press spokesperson coming forward and saying that that is not the case that donald trump just had a phone conversation with rod rosenstein and that once donald trump returns from the united nations on thursday when he's back in washington d.c. rod rosenstein and trump will be meeting in person now the reason that there was so much speculation that rod rosenstein and resigned or was possibly going to be fired by trump was in response to reports that he had had actually called for recording donald trump tape recording trump's phone conversations and other statements and then using the recordings to make the case that donald trump could be removed under
