WASHINGTON ― The Trump administration will attempt to block an agreement between the city of Chicago and the state of IL to reform the long-troubled Chicago Police Department, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday.
Rod Rosenstein had appeared close to being fired following U.S. media reports, which he denied, that he discussed secretly recording Donald Trump.
Rosenstein had appeared close to being fired following United States media reports, which he denied, that he discussed secretly recording Trump and using the 25th Constitutional Amendment for removing presidents found to be unfit for office.

Rosenstein and Trump had been expected to meet at the White House days later, but that meeting was put off so that the president could focus on the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller, has so far been steadfast in trying to protect the investigation as it digs ever deeper into Trump's inner circle. He also called Trump's proposal "tired rhetoric" and a sign that Trump is anxious about the Republicans in the midterms.
