Trump Blames Justice Department and F.B.I. for Conduct He Says Was ‘a Disgrace’

The president, who first considered getting rid of Mr. Rosenstein last summer, pointedly refused to say on Friday whether he was more likely to do so now, cocking his head and telling reporters who pressed him on the matter: “You figure that out.”The memo described Mr. Rosenstein as one of the senior Justice Department officials who approved an application to extend surveillance of Mr. Page, and suggested that those applications deliberately avoided mentioning that they were based in part on information in a dossier paid for by Democrats.The prospect of Mr. Rosenstein’s ouster set off alarms among Democrats, who said it would be an unacceptable move by the president to thwart an ongoing federal investigation.“We write to inform you that we would consider such an unwarranted action as an attempt to obstruct justice in the Russia investigation,” Democratic leaders wrote in a letter to Mr. Trump shortly after he made his comments at the White House on Friday morning.GraphicConfused By All the News About Russia?

That assertion disregards unrelated evidence that Russia sought to influence the election and the pattern of contacts between Russians and Mr […]

News Analysis: Trump Can Sell an Improved Economy, but Not Himself

“Every major address like this is an opportunity for reset, but that is unlikely in this case and even more unlikely still given that it’s an election year,” said Lanhee J. Chen, a scholar at the Hoover Institution at Stanford who advised Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign in 2012. “The current narrative, both for those who oppose the president and those who support him, has been established over the better part of two years — during a campaign and one year in office.
