Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein laughed when he was asked if he volunteered to wear a wire to record conversations with President Trump, PJ Media reported in May, 2019.

Remember, it was former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who publicly stated that Rosenstein made the offer.

“We talked about why the president had insisted on firing the director and whether or not he was thinking about the Russia investigation and did that impact his decision and in the context of that conversation, the deputy attorney general offered to wear a wire into the White House. He said, ‘I never get searched when I go into the White House. I could easily wear a recording device. They wouldn’t know it was there.’ Now, he was not joking,” McCabe said during a 60 Minutes interview.

“He was absolutely serious. And in fact, he brought it up in the next meeting we had. I never actually considered taking him up on the offer. I did discuss it with my general counsel and my leadership team back at the FBI after he brought it up the first time,” McCabe added.

Rosenstein testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Sara A. Carter followed the hearing in this live blog.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
