According to new Bloomberg report, Rod Rosenstein told Trump he isn’t a target of the Mueller probe or investigation into Michael Cohen.

Bloomberg:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told President Donald Trump last week that he isn’t a target of any part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation or the probe into his longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, according to several people familiar with the matter.

Rosenstein, who brought up the investigations himself, offered the assurance during a meeting with Trump at the White House last Thursday, a development that helped tamp down the president’s desire to remove Rosenstein or Mueller, the people said.

After the meeting, Trump told some of his closest advisers that it’s not the right time to remove either man since he’s not a target of the probes. One person said Trump doesn’t want to take any action that would drag out the investigation.

According to other sources, however, this doesn’t mean he won’t become a target at somepoint. Just yesterday Rudy Giuliani announced he was joining Trump’s legal team and expects to end the probe in ‘one or two weeks’.
