Trump meets Rosenstein to discuss Dem memo

Donald Trump met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Tuesday to discuss a classified memo that Democrats say will counter GOP allegations that the FBI abused its spying powers while investigating the president’s 2016 campaign, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

White House chief of staff John Kelly told reporters earlier Tuesday that Trump had received the document, which is Democrats’ response to an earlier memo by Republicans that was made public last week. A House panel voted Monday in favor of making the Democratic document public too.

Kelly said Trump would be briefed on the Democrats’ memo, which he called “pretty lengthy.”

Sanders said Trump met with Rosenstein to discuss “differences between the two memos.” She said the administration would follow a similar course to review the Democratic memo as it had the GOP version.
