Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that the deputy attorney general has been asked to brief the entire Senate next week in the wake of FBI Director James Comey’s firing.
“I’ve just heard from the majority leader that he will invite Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to an all senators briefing next week. … It is a good first step, and I thank the majority leader for consenting to this request,” Schumer said from the Senate floor.
Don Stewart, a spokesman for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), said Rosenstein has already been meeting with lawmakers and “has made himself available to the leadership as well.”
“So the leader is working on scheduling a briefing for all members from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Once we have more information we’ll be sure to make an announcement,” he said in response to a question about Schumer’s comments.
