Interesting follow up here from the Post about Monday’s Rosenstein drama. As predicted, it now seems most likely that Rosenstein will not leave at all, or at least not until after the midterm election. So what happened?
I speculated Monday afternoon that Rosenstein might have been resigned to leaving. But he may have insisted that if Trump wanted him gone they had to fire him. He wasn’t going to resign. The Post’s suggests that it wasn’t about firing or resigning. The Post says that Rosenstein “told the White House he was willing to quit if President Trump wouldn’t disparage him.”
