During the meeting, Trump expressed to the Russians his firing of Jim Comey had relieved "great pressure" that was on him.
It is not clear exactly when the conversation took place, or how long it lasted, but Rosenstein is relevant to Mueller's investigation because he authored a memorandum in May that the White House initially held up as justification for Comey's firing.
One subject seemed to catch Washington by surprise Wednesday: A request for documents related to Trump's Oval Office meeting in May with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Senator Chris Coons has co-sponsored a measure that would keep special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired as he investigates whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the presidential campaign.

The New York Times first reported Tuesday that Mueller's investigation was looking into the Oval Office meeting. Mueller is apparently not content to just look at their words alone, but is willing to examine outside evidence that could point to whether or not Trump acted with "corrupt intent" when he fired Comey. It was revealed earlier this month that Trump and aide Stephen Miller had drafted, but not sent, an earlier memo that sought to justify Comey's firing.
Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates has said she warned White House counsel Don McGahn in January that deception left Flynn and the White House in a compromised position.
