Rod Rosenstein’s “Should I Stay Or Should I Go”
President Trump was reportedly considering firing Rod Rosenstein after a story in the New York Times (which Trump says is Fake News, except for this story) said Rosenstein suggested secretly recording Trump and use the President’s own words to have him removed from office via the 25th Amendment, which basically states that the President is a nut job.
So #RodRosenstein offered to wear a wire? Good for him!! that's what law enforcement is supposed to do to when they encounter a mob boss! And that's what we've got in the WH…a mob boss from Queens!!

Between now and Trump's meeting Thursday where he might fire Rod Rosenstein I hope Robert Mueller is backing up all his files. And I dont just mean on hard drives – Im talking on old floppy disks, on secret paper that you need to squeeze lemon on to read, on cave drawings etc

So by my count the Rod Rosenstein story is at least the 2nd major story in the past week (with potentially massive implications) that was likely manufactured by the White House, fed to reporters, and published as fact. This is bonkers, guys.

I'm trying to decide if the Trump WH is bungling the handling of the Kavanaugh nomination to distract us from the Rosenstein firing, or if it is firing Rod to distract from the disaster of the Kavanaugh nomination.

The Trump White House is betting that obstructing justice by firing Rosenstein will distract from Kavanaugh long enough to put him on the Supreme Court where he will then cast the deciding vote on whether the President obstructed justice.

Rosenstein should start cleaning out his desk now and now wait till he meets with Trump on Thursday.
