BREAKING: CNN reporting that then acting FBI Dir Andrew McCabe opened an Obstruction Investigation (probe) into Trump after he fired Comey. More to come...Swalwell had some good stuff to say @ this. #ThursdayThoughts
2-CNN sources saying that Rod Rosenstein & top FBI officials felt that Trump needed to be 'reined in', and that a DOJ official 'strongly disputed' Rosenstein as he sought to curb Trump's behavior. This is a BIG story..speaks to a lot of firings that eventually happened.

1. #QAnon dropped a Christmas tree pic that, at first, some thought was Trump Tower, perhaps somehow related to last night's #FakeNews of an "abrupt departure" from the Christmas tree lighting at the elipse.

1. If Mueller sent out target letters to Trump insiders, then @RealDonaldTrump knows that indictments are coming. He looked absolutely fried in Paris. Not to cut him slack but he looked like somebody with Cholera.
2. #Manafort's plea required him to cooperate with "the Government and other law enforcement authorities identified by the Government." Fed R Crim P 6(e) authorizes #Mueller with #Rosenstein's permission to share his grand jury files with state prosecutors.
3. So I'll be shocked if by now there are not several indictments already handed down in state courts. Will also be shocked if, while @POTUS was traveling, Whitaker was not briefed on them & shared the secrets with Trump whose system is starting to react to the massive stress.

1. Big decode: “#StealthBombers and #StupidQuestions”: @POTUS just gave us a hint! Abby Phillips asks, “Do you expect Whittaker to rein in the #Mueller probe?” He replies, “That is such a stupid question.” Mueller is the #StealthBomber!!! Here’s why:
2. First, news is, #Mueller’s ready with some indictments. Take it from the #FakeNews publication with the most executive resignations, whose office was raided by the Manhattan district attorney’s office. #Newsweek They ought ya know about indictments, right??

1. 90% a coup is under way. Whitaker had same job my brother had. AG Chief of Staff. Not Senate confirmed. Cannot be AG. Whitaker was US attorney but not now. I think he his not qualified to act meaning FISA now shut down. @NSAGov @FBIWFO @neal_katyal can you chime in please?
2. Congress addressed this in 28 USC 508. Whitaker is not the lawful AG. Mueller should unseal all the indictments. Do it now while you can. @FBIWFO law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/28…

While #JeffSessions’ & #RodRosenstein’s replacements should ideally come from OUTSIDE #DOJ, somebody like #JohnDemers could also be a good choice. Not perfect, but good. As head of the National Security Division, he‘s shown real gumption in addressing #China’s espionage threat.
… my opinion of @FBI GC #DanaBoente has cooled, as he‘s apparently okay w/ this #RussiaGate myth, is tight w/ #DirtyCop #Mueller, & as USA for #EDVA, likely empaneled the @WikiLeaks Grand Jury on the basis of fabricated evidence & perjurious testimony extracted under duress.
… AAG-NS #JohnDemers clerked for #Scalia & has, for the most, made strategic decisions. That said, his apparent failure to agitate for charging officials (like @HillaryClinton, @Comey & @JohnBrennan) — seemingly deferring to #Huber & #Horowitz — is concerning. Could be stronger.

1. Was today's #Rosenstein affair part of a carefully planned Russian intel operation assisted by treasonous @whitehouse staff and @nytimes reporters? @FBIWFO @NSAGov. Here's my view.
2. First, I track the sealed dockets in DC. There are a lot. I haven't checked the inventory but I'm guessing there are still a lot. They're not all 2016 Russian attack related but I'm betting some are. And once unsealed Trump can't dismiss them. Only the Art. III judges can
3. Second, IMO DC is the most surveilled city in the world. Foreign intelligence services work out of every embassy and the Russians are active and aggressive. So it would be hard to imagine that Russians SVR and GRU aren't watching court, its filings and the grand jury.

@jeffsessions reached out to #SCOTUS members for guidance on his recusal and how or if it was possible to fire #Rosenstein without lifting that recusal. Legal gymnastics behind the scenes by #Sessions to find a way to take action against #RR happened BEFORE @nytimes article.

I think I understand some of this succession stuff ... for the dummies like me out there: It only matter whether #Rosenstein was fired or resigned for his duties as deputy attorney general.
But he was overseeing the Mueller probe as the acting attorney general (because Sessions had to recuse).
Whoever replaces him as acting deputy attorney general (until Trump appoints someone new) cannot also perform the duties of acting attorney general. No "acting-acting" allowed.

Right, so per "source close to Rod Rosenstein" he has NOT resigned nor has he offered to resign.

If @RealDonaldTrump wants to add another obstruction of justice charge by firing Rosenstein, he'll have to do so. Rosenstein isn't resigning and has not offered to do so.
This per @eorden of CNN.

Rod Rosenstein ("source close to" means this) is not resigning, and has not offered to resign.

Trump may obstruct justice by firing Rosenstein, he must really long for that jail cell, but Rosenstein is not resigning.
This is probably a good time to wise folks up to the idea that if Trump fired Mueller, he wouldn't have fired the Office of Special Counsel. If Mueller spontaneously combusts in the next 5 minutes, the Trump Russia investigation will continue.

It doesn't depend on individuals.

It's not even 11a on Monday. This week is going to be bleeping bonkers.
NBC's Pete Williams, gold standard in #DOJ reporting, says #Rosenstein en route to White House, won't resign and will force them to fire him. As I am told, Vacancies Act only kicks in if he resigns.
Vacancies Act means if a senior official "dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office," then president can fill it w/someone already confirmed by Senate for a period of time w/o being reconfirmed. Being fired doesn't qualify as reason.

As a prosecutor who had cases covered by the national media, I’d like to offer my perspective on the @nytimes piece on #Rosenstein.

1/
I don’t doubt that @nytmike and @adamgoldmanNYT sourced this story in typical top-notch fashion. But their reporting is only as good as their sources’ accuracy. Having been on the other side when @nytimes and others reported on my cases based on leaks, consider:

2/
1) sources get things wrong on the best of days, even without an axe to grind. This is bc sources are usually at least one step removed (if not more) from the nitty gritty details, and details matter.

Rs are throwing shade on the NYT story on #Rosenstein.

They’ve gone all out to keep Trump from going ballistic and firing anybody.

It’s all about concern about the midterms.

(Even Ingraham has deleted her tweet.) #rosenstein 1/5

In an absolutely incoherent monologue last night, #hannity tried to spin the NYT story as a setup by the Left! (How confused can he get??!) 2/5
Au contraire, it was leaked by a faction of the Right, which was then quickly overpowered by a more reality-based faction of the Right. 3/5

#Rosenstein’s remarks (about exercising the Fifth Amendment and wiring Trump) were clearly facetious. But it just occurred to me that this isn’t the point. 1/5
All the saboteurs on the Right might need to get Trump to stop #Rosenstein & the #Mueller investigation is the disclosure that there was a discussion that showed agency concern about Trump AT ALL. 2/5
It was reported early last month that Trump and Rosenstein had a “great relationship.”

It is hard to see how that kind of relationship can survive this NYT story, 3/5 tinyurl.com/yaaasm8j

In the days after Comey's firing, DAG Rosenstein suggested that he secretly record Trump to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the #25thAmendment to remove Trump from office for being unfit nyti.ms/2xxNdwl
A hit job, with the NYT the willing accomplice.

Clears the way for Trump to (try to) shut down the special counsel's investigation, just as key dominoes are falling.
This supports the statement (buried in the NYT piece) provided by DOJ from a person who was present, who said Rosenstein made the remark sarcastically

1. Rod Rosenstein: a DeepState puppet or an (undercover) Trump ally?
[THREAD] - Part 2

#Rosenstein #DeepState
3. consider this:

If Mueller is a DeepState puppet, also Rod Rosenstein is a DeepState puppet.

If Mueller is an (undercover) Trump ally, also Rod Rosenstein is an (undercover) Trump ally.

There is no way around this.
