Rosenstein to testify in Senate on Trump-Russia probeA key figure behind the U.S. investigation into links between Russia and President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign will testify next week before a Republican-led Senate committee examining the origins of the probe, the panel said on Wednesday. Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed former U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller in 2017, will testify on June 3 as part of a Senate Judiciary Committee examination of an FBI probe of Trump campaign officials code-named "Crossfire Hurricane," which led to the Mueller investigation. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Rosenstein would offer "new revelations" about federal surveillance practices.
