    Interesting position he ended up in. Supporting Trump, and yet being bad mouthed by Trump and other radical right GOP members. He played the Barr Press Conference with a blank stare that was noticed by the media.

    He ended up being loved by no one. Seems anyone who is at first loyal to Trump ends up as a bad guy in Trump's eyes. How fast the turn around. Can't normal people see this pattern?

    Not too many people who associate with Trump keep a sterling reputation.

    I remember reading that Rosenstein announced his resignation would occur after Mueller's report was completed. This is not new news. Move along people.

    Rosenstein is a man of courage. He did the right thing while under tremendous pressure.

    Unfortunately, too many people believe trump when he smears Rosenstein and others like him.

    I guess being made to stand behind Bill Barr while the AG repeated lie after lie was too much to bear. It's not easy being force to compromise one's integrity serving in the Trump White House. Now we have to get Rod Rosenstein before the House Judicial Committee and learn what went on in Barr's taking the Mueller investigation report and announcing a conclusion which wasn't indicated by the report.

    Donald Trump could have fired Robert Mueller by himself if he would take responsibility for his actions. But we see that he puts such untasteful deeds on others. This way he can blame his others for "acting on their own initiative" and save himself the embarrassment of having done it himself. This is a man who learned to act proactively to hide his behavior from others like he did with the CIA and FBI regarding his activity with Russia. Deniability is a big part of the Trump playbook.

    Trump recognized that if the public knew of his real connections with Valdimir Putin and Russia, he stood no chance of winning election. Now he just continues to deny it and his loyal followers believe him. He called the Mueller probe "fake news". He kept Rosenstein in line by threatening to fire him.
