What could this mean? Is the Deputy AG, essentially in charge of the Mueller Investigation since Sessions recused himself paying a courtesy call on the Speaker of the House? Is he complaining about the recent activities of Congressman Numnes? Or is he giving Ryan a heads-up on upcoming indictments?
According to the Associated Press, a congressional aide said Rosenstein requested the meeting. The aide declined to be named because the meeting was private.
House intelligence committee Chairman Devin Nunes has asked Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to produce a number of documents related to the Russia investigation. These include materials related to how the agency used a dossier of allegations about Trump’s ties to Russia that was partially paid for by Democrats.
Nunes sent Rosenstein a letter last week saying he wanted the information by Jan. 3.
