Donald Trump will visit the FBI headquarters in Washington later this week, a White House spokesman confirmed Thursday.

In an interview with CBS “This Morning,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “I believe that it’s very likely that takes place sometime within the next few days.”

A report in the Washington Post Wednesday said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — who wrote a letter to the president recommending Comey’s dismissal — threatened to quit afterwards because the narrative “cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey and that the president acted only on his recommendation.”

Sanders disputed that: “I’m not aware of any conversation that took place about that. What I do know is this was an action the president took, that the president wanted to take, and frankly, had been considering since November.” (RELATED: Donald Trump Has Fired FBI Director James Comey)

“This was certainly something the president had been considering…There was a consistent erosion of confidence.”
