The deputy attorney general is still on the job.
Trump will meet with Rosenstein Thursday to discuss reports that he talked about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
The announcement came just hours after the revelation that Rosenstein was considering resigning, which set off a flurry of speculation about who would replace him at the Justice Department, where Mr. Rosenstein oversees the Russia investigation.
Over the weekend Rosenstein called a White House official and said he was considering quitting, and a person close to the White House said he was resigning. On Monday morning, after again calling John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, to discuss the prospect of his resignation, Rosenstein headed to the White House to meet with Mr. Kelly.
Those are the facts as of now. Clearly for the sake of our republic it is most necessary to keep Rosenstein in his position.
