There are snakes slithering just under the surface of the DC swamp, likely in every direction that one can look.
Whether you want to call them the “Deep State”, or the “resistance” is your choice, and, in fact, some are even inclined to deny their existence. But I must warn you, they do so at their own peril. For when the swamp truly begins to drain, these serpents find themselves at the surface, ready to strike.
Such seems to be the case with Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General and intrinsic piece of the democrats’ anti-Trump #RussiaGate probe. Rosenstein recently admitted that he was contemplating wearing a wire and secretly recording the President in order to attempt an invocation of the 25th Amendment, leading to Trump’s removal from office. When this claim leaked, many believed that it was all over for the Deputy AG.
Now, it looks as though Rosenstein may just skate through another few days before meeting the proverbial hangman.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to meet with President Trump at the White House Thursday; ending hours of media speculation after he was abruptly summoned to the White House Monday morning.
According to an official statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Rosenstein “had an extended conversation” with the President regarding recent media reports he proposed “secretly recording” Trump during Oval Office meetings.
“At the request of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories,” said Sanders.
The delay stems from the meeting of the UN General Assembly, in which President Trump is heavily involved.
Could Rod live up to his name, and become the lightning receptacle that we believe is necessary to quell the “resistance”? Or will Rosenstein’s pal Mueller have something up his sleeve in time to save his imperiled pal?
I suppose that we may have an answer for that on Thursday.
