White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that President Donald Trump has seen the Schiff Memo and has met with U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“The president has seen the memo. He met with the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein within the last hour to discuss some of the differences between the two memos,” she said. “And we are undergoing the exact same process that we did with the previous memo in which we will go through a full and thorough legal and national security review. We are in the middle of the process.”
The GOP-led House Intelligence Committee voted Monday to release the Democrats’ memo.
The president of the United States has five days to approve or disapprove the release of the Schiff Memo.
Rosenstein’s position seemed uncertain Friday when reporters asked Trump if he had confidence in the deputy attorney general.
“You figure that one out,” the president replied.
“No changes are going to be made at the DOJ. We fully expect Rosenstein to continue on,” deputy press secretary Raj Shah told CNN.
