If it turns out I've been wrong about Rod Rosenstein, and he is INDEED DIRTY, and exactly like Andrew McCabe, they LEFT HIM IN PLACE for a freaking YEAR AND A HALF while they built a case against him.....

How smart would this make Jeff Sessions?

He let Andrew McCabe stay in that job and will have let Rod Rosenstein stay in that DAG job...both men sat there for a year and a half thinking "Hey I can't be in that much trouble - I haven't been fired yet!"

Holy cow....
They LET these guys sit there and think they were OK right up until just before the HAMMER dropped on them.
DOJ IG Michael Horowitz was BUILDING A CASE against Andrew McCabe to SEND HIM TO PRISON the entire YEAR AND A HALF that McCabe was.....

are you ready for this?

The #2 guy at the FBI, and for awhile, until Wray stepped in, the ACTING Director of the FBI.
But I confess, I *never* really bought the idea Jeff Sessions would have had Horowitz & others building a case against HIS OWN #2 AT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.
IF they spent a year and a half building a case against BOTH McCabe *and* Rosenstein and waited until NOW to fire both of them & start rolling the case for prosecuting both out to the Congress & the pubic & the media?

They would have left 2 key plotters in position for all of last year. Imagine how that made the other members of the coup feel.

"Well hey, McCabe is still there. How much could they really know if they left him there, right?"
And, assuming this news about Rosenstein is true, it goes even further.

"Well hey, they *CAN'T* know that much since BOTH Andy and Rod are still there. Nothing's happened to 'em! Let's not panic here, let's stick to the plan!"
Now there's an added dimension to this. McCabe obviously didn't flip. What if Rosenstein did, and agreed to cooperate in exchange for leniency?

He'd STILL have to be fired, but they'd wait until his usefulness to the investigation was over.
That's why they'd wait for the start of the rolling out of the IG report to fire him. His usefulness would be over.
At any rate, this is just something being reported to NBC News and others by 'sources'.

We'll have to wait and see what actually happens.

ADDENDUM: Let me make it clear: right now Rosenstein being fired is SPECULATION. Nothing has happened. This *could* be just more fake news thrown out there.

I did some speculation based on an anonymously sourced news report. Let's not act like Rosenstein is already fired.
Why would #FakeNewsMedia suddenly be floating news stories about Rosenstein being fired? Because he's hammering their boy Comey:

So: some anonymous sources tell 1 news outlet Rosenstein is going around saying "OMG I'm about to be fired!"

OTHER anonymous sources tell another news outlet Rosenstein is digging in his heels: "I was COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED in firing James Comey!"

Disinformation is EVERYWHERE.
