TM, why do you give this garbage the slightest creeence?

It’s all lies, bought and paid for by the Democrat Party and shamelessly parroted by their allies in the MSM.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has verbally resigned to Chief of Staff John Kelly in anticipation of being fired by President Trump, according to a source with direct knowledge. Per a second source with direct knowledge: “He’s expecting to be fired,” so he plans to step down.

ChiTown Lurker wants me to tell you that the resignation/fired story may be a barium meal to trap leakers.

Whenever Axios or any other leftwing media organization is the one that breaks news like this the above is always my first assumption. Why would anyone in the WH high enough level to know what is going to happen leak info like this to the political enemy?

FWIW saw on Twitter someone saying as DAG Rosenstein's resignation would be submitted to Sessions and not Kelly (Chief of Staff) since Rosenstein doesn't report to Kelly.

Which actually makes it a triple post.

I don't trust any blog run by that fat slob Bannon. Breitbart was the founder so he could dress however he wanted. Bannon is just some glorified caretaker who has let the place turn to shit. No wonder Trump didn't want someone looking like a homeless person around him no matter how smart he purportedly is.

Would you prefer he be a White hat or a Black hat?

If CH and I are correct about Rosenstein being a White hat that is good for Trump and the country. If you are correct about Rosenstein being a Black hat that is bad for Trump and the country. Who do you want to be correct?

My wife passionately hates DJT but thinks this rape fest is ridiculous. I hope most Americans feel the same. Like SCOTUS tailoring all their arguments to the sensitivities of Kennedy, I am assuming that every move Grassley makes is to suck up to whoever is the weakest vote among the Republicans on the committee.

Captain Hate

More snakes in the DOJ than in an Indiana Jones movie.

I've assumed all along that Sessions knows who they are, and knows he can't outright fire most of them. What I don't know is if he's figured out how to neutralize them or is waiting for a fireable action.

Maybe Rosenstein leaked the news of his firing to avoid being fired?

HENRY, you need to go testify.

Fox says Rosenstien is not even at the WH yet but I've received several text messages that he has resigned. So now will he become Muellers #1 witness? Fox biz says he has a noon appt and has not yet resigned. I guess he's late.

Trump needs to put someone in to replace him today.

TK - Maybe they are leak fishing again.

Maybe Rosenstein did wear a wire and now he is negotiating with Trump?

I'll believe Rosenstein is gone when either Trump tweets it or Rosenstein, Kelly, Sessions or Sanders states it publicly on camera. All these "scoops" are just Fake News at this point.

I am seeing snark from several reporters about this Rosenstein confusion that it is "another example of the chaos in this White House."

President Trump is in New York at the UN. SO is Sarah Sanders.

It seems to me that this is chaos in the press corps because they don't really know what's going on, don't understand how the government works, and have the IQ's of gnats.

lurkersusie, your 12:55: "...and have never witnessed the kind of anger among GOP voters generated from a combination of the unsubstantiated attacks on Kavanaugh and flaccid response of emasculated Republicans.""

That is so true. I would never have emailed a senator and said what I did (and I really restrained myself) if I hadn't been so angry about his silence and lack of backbone on helping President Trump, as well as backing Kavanaugh publicly. The Democrats, all of them, come out like a swarm of hornets on all issues to support their guy or attack ours.

I was so furious I almost called his office and still might. The Republicans are soft. Disappointing. And timid.

matt - deplore me if you must

A stadium tour?? Who does she think she is? The Eagles or U2? And what kind of fool pays someone to see them from 50 yards away and who is trying too sell them something? The Obamas are as bad as the Clintons.

I understand that Stormy Daniels now says she had an affair with Kavanaugh.

Please remember that this is a coordinated assault on Kavanaugh probably involving the same Journo-Listers from the last administration. Didn't the media call for a coordinated effort to fight back against Trump a few weeks ago? This smear campaign is a part of that.

The new accusations will bounce across the echo chamber until they become a part of the Hate Party's received wisdom, evermore to be discussed at hate rallies, cocktail parties, pussy marches, and in the offices of MSDNC, CBS and CNN and elsewhere.

Rosenstein is not a good guy Will meet with President Trump on Thursday.

Poor Tom. Poor poor Tom.

lurkersusie

Oh boy

Rosenstein’s offer to record the president is said to have included a suggestion that applicants for the FBI job also record him. Considering the gravity of the meeting, none of that sounds like joke material.

Indeed, the Times describes Rosenstein’s state of mind as anything but jovial, saying he “appeared conflicted, regretful and emotional.” He was also “angry at Mr. Trump.”

It soon became clear just how angry. The next day, May 17, Rosenstein shocked Washington by appointing Robert Mueller as special counsel and directing him to take over the existing Russia collusion investigation and virtually anything else Mueller wanted to probe.

Furious at the president and being attacked on all sides, Rosenstein suddenly had the power to strike back. And he did.
