Axios

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 source close to Rosenstein: “He’s expecting to be fired,” so plans to step down.

And now we are in very unchartered territory.

    He should have made President Yeti Pubes fire him rather than give him cover on this.

    Later reports are that RR won’t resign and is demanding he be fired. Because complications of replacing him.

    Axios is the only source I’ve found which says R is planning to “step down”. All other reports are saying he’s expecting to be fired today, but they are not saying he’s going to quit. So who knows. But it’s definitely a non-trivial distinction.

  5. Well, the ratfuckers in the WH and the complicit trumpian assets “journanimalists” at the NYT have done their jobs. Sure hope they enjoy the ride when he (or more likely a successor) goes full Putin on their asses and they mysteriously start falling out of buildings, or stupidly throwing themselves onto a bunch of bullets.

    Yeah we have a Constitutional Crisis: we have a Constitution that was written in the 18th century when 94% or our population was rural, written to appease slaveholders and give them an outsized say in how the country is run. And the heirs of those slaveholders have been steadily packing the courts for decades.

    You want to know the REAL demographic time bomb?

    By 2040 70% of Americans will be represented by only 30 senators. Imagine 70 Grassleys, Tillis’es and Ron Johnsons.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2018/07/12/in-about-20-years-half-the-population-will-live-in-eight-states/?utm_term=.fb4056c097b8

    And those states with 70% of the Senate will be a wasteland of no jobs, climate-changed induced crop failures, drought, no future, and old angry racist white people. They will also have a lock on the Electoral College. And the Courts.

    That does not end well; when you prevent people from peacefully participating in their government, they WILL turn to violence.
