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!"
are you ready for this?
The #2 guy at the FBI, and for awhile, until Wray stepped in, the ACTING Director of the FBI.
This was ONE HELL OF A DISINFORMATION OPERATION.
"Well hey, McCabe is still there. How much could they really know if they left him there, right?"
"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!"
He'd STILL have to be fired, but they'd wait until his usefulness to the investigation was over.
We'll have to wait and see what actually happens.
I did some speculation based on an anonymously sourced news report. Let's not act like Rosenstein is already 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.
