The two get to have a little chat….
Will Rosenstein have an FBI security detail outside the conference room on Air Force One to protect him from Donald Trump leaning on him?
Does Rosenstein get a ‘pat down’ for mic’s?.

Rosenstein planned to travel with the president on his visit to the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference in Orlando.
A Department of Justice official confirmed to The Hill that the deputy attorney general would join the president on Air Force One. The New York Times first reported the development.
The move comes nearly two weeks after the two were first scheduled to meet following a New York Times report that Rosenstein had proposed secretly recording conversationswith Trump and discussed the possibility of administration officials invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office shortly after former FBI Director James Comeywas fired in 2017.
There was widespread speculation that Rosenstein would either resign or be fired following The Times report.
Trump postponed a scheduled meeting until after then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process concluded. Kavanaugh was confirmed on Saturday in a 50-48 vote….
Rosenstein will keep his job for now….
