According to NBC News, deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein knew Donald Trump was going to fire FBI chief James Comey before he completed a memo detailing his own concerns about the former FBI leader. Referring to a Justice Department attorney, Rosenstein said in a statement that was delivered to lawmakers, "I informed the senior attorney that the president was going to remove Director Comey, and that I was writing a memorandum to the attorney general summarizing my own concerns."
