Rosenstein: I’d fire Russia probe special counsel only if ‘good cause’ to do soDeputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified Tuesday that he would fire the special counsel in the Russia investigation only if he had “good cause” to do so — even if that meant ignoring a direct order from President Trump. Rosenstein, testifying about the Justice Department budget in front of the Senate Appropriations Committee, was asked by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, what he would do if Trump ordered him to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. “Senator, I’m not going to follow any orders unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders,” Rosenstein said.
