President Trump will meet with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray today at 3 p.m. with his tweeted demand that the Department of Justice investigate whether the FBI and DOJ "infiltrated or surveilled" the Trump campaign as "a topic of discussion," ABC's Jon Karl scoops. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats will also attend, per The Washington Post.

The big picture: As Axios' Jonathan Swan reported yesterday, Trump's tweet effectively rolled a grenade into the Department of Justice, ordering the agency to conduct a politically-motivated investigation of itself. This meeting could pull the pin — or maintain the status quo.
