    There's conflicting reports all over the place. Jonathan Karl of ABC on Tweeter 20 minutes ago:

    This may be the strangest day yet at the Trump White House. Rod Rosenstein was summoned to the WH to meet with John Kelly this morning. He expected to be fired. He wasn't. And now Rosenstein is attending a previously scheduled cabinet-level meeting (filling in for Sessions)

    LOL. Seems like Trump is trolling Rosenstein. It would be pretty stupid for Trump to fire him at this point.

    Update: Rosenstein hasn't resigned or been fired. He will meet with Trump on Thursday. https://twitter.com/PressSec?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

    "Pretty stupid" has been the Donald's MO.

    Stupid like a crazy fox maybe. He's been very effective so far in getting all the stuff done that I wanted done; much more so than a Jeb or even Cruz would have been IMO. And if Kavanaugh somehow makes it through I still won't be tired of winning. Still need that wall though.

    Outside of his huge tax cut for rich folks, big corporations and the like could you name one legislative achievement he has managed?

    He could have had his wall (which is unpopular) if he had agreed to DACA deal (popular and something he said he supports).

    That's not "stupid"?

    When Rod gets fired, Mueller's time is numbered. Trump's gonna put in a stooge to fire him, and bye-bye Russia probe.

    Only question is why Trump didn't do this sooner.

    Your uncanny ability to misread virtually every news development remains intact.

    Trump didn't bite? He and his sycophants ARE the swamp.

    Maybe after the election. Republicans routinely save their worst for just after an election. That way, it's two years until the next one and they know as well as we do, that votes are what count, not righteous indignation, and voters here have the worst memories.
