After Trump Attack, Rosenstein And Sessions Go Out To Dinner In Unity Display
Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein have little in common, but there is one thing they share — both have been scolded publicly by President Trump for their roles in investigating Russia’s involvement in the 2016 elections.
Axios reported on Wednesday that hours after the latest Trump fusillade, the two sat down for dinner at a high-end Washington restaurant, joined by the Justice Department’s third-ranking official - Solicitor General Noel Francisco.
The importance of this get-together, according to the report, is in the message it sends Trump. “The symbolism was unmistakable: the three top ranking officials in the Justice Department appearing together in a show of solidarity on the same day Trump is publicly and privately raging about Sessions,” Axios wrote. The photo, Axios explained, will drive home the message to Trump that even if he gets rid of Sessions, he’ll still has Rosenstein and Francisco to deal with.
