White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that the president met with Mr. Rosenstein “to discuss some of the differences” between the Democratic memo and the Republican document it addresses, which was released last week. She said the White House was “in the middle” of a legal and national-security review of the Democratic memo expected to take “several days,” after which the president would be briefed.
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told reporters earlier Tuesday that Mr. Trump hadn’t yet read the Democratic document. “He has it. It’s pretty lengthy,” Mr. Kelly said of the 10-page memo. “We’ll get some people down to brief him on it.”
Hard to see what could go wrong here.
The longest thing Trump has ever read is a Penthouse Forum letter and I would bet money on it. https://t.co/2x4HgE3UPQ
