Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein knew FBI Director James Comey was going to be fired before he wrote a memo recommending Comey’s dismissal, a pair of Democratic senators said Thursday.

“He did acknowledge that he learned that Comey would be removed prior to him writing his memo,” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) told reporters after leaving a closed-door briefing with Rosenstein.

President Trump is grappling with the gravest controversy of his presidency as the storm kicked up by his firing of FBI Director James Comey rumbles on.

An atmosphere of crisis enveloped Washington in the first full day after the firing, which was announced Tuesday.

Cable news shows were thick with talk of a constitutional crisis and comparisons to the Watergate scandal of the early 1970s that brought down President Richard Nixon.

On Capitol Hill, the fissures in the Republican Party over the episode were plain, with some prominent GOP lawmakers hitting Trump’s actions and others backing him up. Democrats, meanwhile, were united — and calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor to further investigate potential links between Trump’s 2016 campaign associates and Russia.

President Trump dropped a bombshell Tuesday — and the aftershocks could blow back to hurt the commander-in-chief himself.

Trump’s decision to fire FBI director James Comey stunned Washington when it became public late afternoon.

The official reason given for Comey’s firing pertained to his conduct during the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

The case against Comey was set out in a remarkable letter by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who said he “cannot defend” how Comey had treated Clinton.

In the polarized political climate of 2017, there is zero chance that Democrats and other critics of Trump will accept the stated explanation as the real reason for Comey’s removal.
