BREAKING: Deputy AG Rosenstein Out as Soon as Today

UPDATE #2: Rosenstein will meet with President Trump on Thursday to probably get fired.


UPDATE: From the Washington Post:

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein has told White House officials he is willing to resign in the wake of revelations he once suggested secretly recording the president, but it’s unclear if the resignation has been accepted, according to people familiar with the matter.

One Justice Department official said Rosenstein was on his way to the White House Monday and is preparing to be fired.


Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein may have resigned, or has already resigned, or is about to be fired by President Trump.

Obviously we’ll update more as this story unfolds today.

    Sounds like it is going to be a very good day for Republicans today.

    I wonder if Rosenstein's willingness to resign is conditional on some guarantee of autonomy for Mueller. If he is fired, the Vacancy Act won't allow a temporary replacement. 

    If fired, the recusal from Sessions would still be in place, so the "next" person in line would be Noel Francisco, Solicitor General of the United States. He's a right wing hack … but may be sympathetic to Rosenstein's position on Mueller, especially if there is a clear endpoint in sight.
