Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein resigned effective May 11. The story will drop out of the media quickly since he praised the President.
He wrote in his letter to the President, “I am grateful to you for the opportunity to serve: for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations, and for the goals you set in your inaugural address” patriotism, unity, safety, education, and prosperity, because “a nation exists to serve its citizens.”
Democrats won’t like that.

Attorney General William Barr in a statement said Rosenstein served the Justice Department “with dedication and distinction.”
“His devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled,” the statement read. “Over the course of his distinguished government career, he has navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor.”
Rosenstein, 54, previously served as deputy assistant attorney general and U.S. attorney.
The stories about him considering wearing a wire to ensnare the President on the 25th Amendment are beginning to look like fake news. While his appointment of Mueller as special counsel sounds like a mistake, Rosenstein doesn’t seem that bad now. He’s leaving gracefully, unlike the Obama embeds and never Trumpers.
Rosenstein was supposed to resign in March but agreed to remain until the Mueller report was settled.
And the groveling starts. Does he think his fake praise will help soften the hand of Justice he and other corrupt politicians know is coming against those responsible for the WORST COUP attempt in American History. Does he think his fake appreciation to serve will reduce sentence by a few years? Does he think all that he did to help push this false propaganda against President Trump will be forgiven if he acknowledges what we all know and that is President Trump would be a fun person to work with or that he is as good as the Dems worry he is.? He should make sure he cont. with this ploy, because its the only thing that might lighten (For Some, but not me)anything coming his deserving way
RR signed an illegitimate surveillance application. He was in a key position to know that the dossier was phony and funded by the demcorats.
His actions during a 2 year period were to cover up DOJ actions.
RR also threatened congressmen and called their requests for information extortion.
RR is merely taking sides situationally, choosing who he thinks is winning.
I recall more than once person claimed he considered recording the president for the purpose of removal.
