"I'm saying it on behalf of the White House, and that's that no changes are going to be made at the Department of Justice… We fully expect Rod Rosenstein to continue on as the deputy attorney general," Shah told CNN.
Following the publication of the memo on Friday, US President Donald Trump refused to say whether he would dismiss the top Justice Department official. Senior US Senate and House Democrats said in a letter to Trump that if he uses the Republican memo to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or stop the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, it will be viewed as obstruction of justice.
The memo, in particular, revealed that Rosenstein had approved at least one Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in order to find any potential ties between Trump campaign and Russia.
Opposition Democrats prepare their own document, in which they plan to accuse the Republicans of attacking special services and question the methods of Republicans' work. Speaking further, Shah said that Trump, in general, was not against publishing the report.
