The meeting at the White House comes the day after Trump shook the Capital with his demand that alleged spying on his presidential campaign by the Obama administration be investigated. Rosenstein responded hours later with an order that the Justice Department Inspector General investigate the charges.
FOX Business says they will discuss the deep state spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Congressional Republicans have had to threaten contempt of Congress and impeachment of Justice Department officials, including Rosenstein, in their battle to get documents and information from the department.
