He has told associates the document could undercut the FBI Russia investigation led by Mueller. It is not clear what Trump meant or how Rosenstein interpreted the comment. Trump's Justice Department said that releasing the memo would be "extraordinarily reckless".
They also criticized House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes for not having read the classified material that formed the basis for the memo. Schiff has become a vocal critic of Nunes' actions, including saying Nunes should step aside from his role in the Russian Federation investigation.
"The memo deliberately omits key facts and intentionally distorts the multilayered process led by rank and file national security professionals that is required to obtain and renew a judicial warrant for a suspected foreign agent", Mr. Leahy said.
"I'm very concerned about it", Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, said Friday on CNN's "The Situation Room". CNN has reported that Trump has been venting to his aides about Rosenstein in recent weeks and even raised the possibility of his removal.
Back to the memo: It says that Rosenstein signed off on at least one FISA application to surveil Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser. Why is that an issue?
If President Trump is destroyed by Mueller and his lawless and deep state co-conspirators in the U.S. Department of Justice, its Federal Bureau of Investigation and the intelligence agencies, then the next president will likely be far worse than even Obama - who this week was seen in a photo embracing Black Muslim Jew and Christian-hater Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.
Before he gave Comey the boot, he'd asked him to go easy on ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was sacked by Trump weeks after the president had learned that Flynn had lied about his contacts with Russian agents.

Rosenstein has been under the spotlight throughout the Trump administration. "Firing Rod Rosenstein, DOJ Leadership, or Bob Mueller could result in a constitutional crisis of the kind not seen since the Saturday Night Massacre", the Democrats said.
U.S. Representative Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) said a potential Rosenstein departure "raises more flags than it dismisses", while Representative David Joyce (R-Ohio) suggested both Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Rosenstein should continue their investigations unabated. He and Wray met with the president this week to oppose the memo's release.
Whatever the president's frustrations with the deputy attorney general, firing him is wrought with political peril.
