Rod Rosenstein [[ ROSE-en-styne ]] will meet with President Trump on Thursday, amid conflicting reports as to whether the Deputy Attorney General will resign or be fired. Trump is at the annual UN meetings in New York and cannot meet face-to-face with Rosenstein, but today White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the two men have talked extensively by phone about last week's explosive New York Times report. Rosenstein has sdenied the report that he considered wearing a wire in meetings with Trump last year.        Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is promising to evaluate new claims of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. According to the New Yorker magazine Deborah Ramirez, who was at Yale with Kavanaugh in the early 1980s, claims he exposed himself in front of her during what she called a drunken dorm party. Kavanaugh called the allegation a "smear, plain and simple" and the New York Times said they cannot corroborate Ramirez's story.        It's unclear if Bill Cosby will be sentenced today for sexual assault in Pennsylvania. Cosby's lawyer has a witness to bring in the Sexually Violent Predator part of the ruling, but the witness is not in the courtroom today for unknown reasons. They cannot sentence Cosby without ruling whether he should be designated a Sexually Violent Predator, and the judge cannot deny calling a witness.        President Trump says a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may happen soon. Speaking in New York today, Trump cited tremendous progress in talks with the North about denuclearization. Trump and Kim held an historic summit in Singapore in June. Trump is in New York for the annual fall meetings of the UN.       South Carolina emergency officials are telling thousands of people in and around the city of Georgetown to get out before floodwaters sweep over the area. As many as eight-thousand people in the community midway between Charleston and Myrtle Beach could be in danger.        The FBI annual crime statistics report, released today, indicates that both violent crime and property crime were down in 2017 when compared with 2016. In 2017 there were more than one point two million violent crimes committed in the country. That is actually a point two percent decline from 2016.
