Trump asked Rosenstein, 'are you o y team?'

President Trump reportedly asked Rod Rosenstein about the federal Russia probe at a December meeting and wanted to know whether the deputy attorney general was on Trump's "team."

CNN reported Wednesday that Rosenstein met with Trump in hopes of getting his support against House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), who was seeking sensitive documents for his classified memo purporting to detail surveillance abuses by the government.

But at the meeting, Trump instead asked Rosenstein about the direction of the investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia and asked directly if Rosenstein was “on my team," CNN reported.

Rosenstein replied, “Of course, we're all on your team, Mr. President," according to CNN’s sources.
