On Wednesday morning, Senator Chuck Schumer called for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint a "special prosecutor" to investigate the Trump campaign's Russia ties.
"What must happen now is that Mr. Rosenstein appoints a special prosecutor to oversee this investigation," Schumer said on the floor of the Senate.
"Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein sat in the Judiciary Committee and promised to appoint a special prosecutor at the appropriate time. He said, quote, 'I'm willing to appoint a special council whenever I determine that it's appropriate,'" he said.
Five hours later, after meeting with the Democratic caucus, Schumer did a complete reversal.
"There are three things that our caucus agreed must happen right away," Schumer said. "First, Mr. Rosenstein should not be the one to appoint a special prosecutor."
"That responsibility should go to the highest-serving career civil servant at the Department of Justice," he said.
