Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) released a joint statement concerning their plans for an upcoming interview with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The meeting will be conducted on October 24th and transcribed for public release after the intelligence community signs off on the transcript. Among the many questions that Rosenstein is sure to be grilled about are the allegations that he offered to wear a wire while talking with President Trump.
