The White House said on Thursday that President Donald Trump and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein have agreed to delay their planned meeting on Thursday until next week, so as not to interfere with the Senate hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Trump had expected to meet with Rosenstein, who oversees the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, to discuss a news report that he had suggested secretly recording the president and recruiting Cabinet members to remove him from office. The meeting between the president and deputy attorney general was originally scheduled in the wake of a flurry of conflicting reports Monday, saying Rosenstein had either quit or was set to be fired. At the time, Trump was in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.
