A bombshell report from Fox News released Friday claims Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI lawyer Lisa Page discussed the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russia collusion.
“Fox News has learned a key meeting took place on May 16, 2017 at Justice Department headquarters. During the meeting, the subject arose of the possibility of appointing a special counsel to investigate Russia election meddling, according to a source. Several people were in the room, including McCabe and former FBI counsel Lisa Page. Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel the next day,” writes Fox News.
“I remember this meeting and remember the wire comment,” a source who was in the room told Fox News. “The statement was sarcastic and was never discussed with any intention of recording a conversation with the president.”
Rosenstein vehemently denies the allegations, saying “The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect.”
