On Friday, Trump said that instead of moving forward immediately, the department's inspector general had been asked to review these documents on an "expedited basis".

America's second most senior law official said the allegation was "inaccurate and factually incorrect".

In the months since Mueller's appointment, Rosenstein has been responsible for overseeing the Russian Federation probe, often holding press conferences to announce indictments brought by Mueller's team of prosecutors.

Mr. Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017 when Mr. Trump's firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director plunged the White House into turmoil.

The 25th amendment provides for the removal of a president deemed unfit for office. He also initiated discussions about invoking the 25th Amendment, which details how the Cabinet can decide whether a president is no longer able to discharge the duties of the office, one of the McCabe memos said.

Rosenstein had told people he was caught off guard and felt he had been used, according to the Times. John McCain, who died away last month, for sinking the GOP health care bill, though he did not mention the late war hero by name. The newspaper's sources also included people who were briefed on memos written by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

McCabe's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, said in a statement that his client had drafted memos to "memorialize significant discussions he had with high level officials and preserved them so he would have an accurate, contemporaneous record of those discussions".

The deputy attorney general's remarks were reported by the New York Times and confirmed by other outlets.

"I want to tell you, we have great people in the Department of Justice ..."

The statement was attributed to "a source who was in the room" and was said to remember the exchange in question.

Reports from other media agencies said Rosenstein's suggestions were jokes and were said sarcastically.

Activating the relevant section of the 25th amendment would require a majority of Mr Trump's cabinet, the vice-president and majorities in Congress, which is now controlled by the president's party. McCabe's senior counsel, Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, also took notes of the discussions that largely track McCabe's in sequence and import but are more detailed, according to people familiar with the discussions and the subsequent documents. "I don't know what Andy thought".

"Thankfully it seems that saner minds have prevailed, at least for the time being", said Sen. It will be interesting to see how he responds to an article that seemingly confirms his suspicions that members of his own administration are out to get him. Sessions recused from that issue soon after he took office, to Trump's dismay, and Rosenstein later appointed Mueller. The story is, as The Donald would say, fake news.

Despite unrelenting criticism from the White House on the course of the investigation into Russia's election interference, Rosenstein has offered unqualified support for Mueller.

News organizations reported differing accounts Monday morning, including that Rosenstein resigned, that he was sacked, and that he was leaving the administration.

The New York Times reported on Friday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had talked about using the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump previous year after the White House was in disarray after the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
