As reported by NBC News:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has struck a stoic and righteous tone in private conversations he has had this week about the fate of his job as President Donald Trump has launched public criticism against him and considered firing him, according to three sources who have spoken to Rosenstein.

In those conversations, he has repeated the phrase, “Here I stand,” a reference to Martin Luther’s famous quote, “Here I stand, I can do no other.” Coincidentally, former FBI Director James Comey, whom Rosenstein fired, repeated the same phrase to President George W. Bush in a conversation that has been widely reported and that Comey describes in his forthcoming book.

One source who spoke to Rosenstein said he seemed fully aware he may soon lose his job and was at peace with the possibility, confident he had done his job with integrity.


Rosenstein also said he stands by his recommendation to fire former FBI Director James Comey and has told confidantes that history will prove him right.

Sources told NBC News that throughout 2017, he often let his anxiety flare when he was publicly chastised by the president.

But in recent months he is decidedly less anxious and appears to have even accepted his fate.

Many have criticized Rosenstein for appointing special counsel Robert Mueller, who has since gone on a fishing expedition seeking to indict as many former Trump associates and staffers as possible since he lacks any evidence that the president has done anything wrong.

For his part, Comey said during congressional testimony after his firing that he hoped his leak of a classified memo to a friend, who then leaked it to the media, would trigger a special counsel probe.

  1. Republican congress. Where the **** are you. You’re a co-equal branch of government for a reason. The Russia investigation must go on. Why aren’t you protecting Mueller and Rosenstein? What will it take for you to get a spine? Come to your senses? We didn’t pull you kicking and screaming into the legislature, you signed up for this. Do the damn job you were hired to do. If the alt right takes you out in the next election then you’re a hero – so prepare yourself for private life and do the right thing while you have the power. Otherwise you’re just taking up space and preventing someone with more guts from getting the job done.

    By the way, the bigger the block of lawmakers who find their spine, the less likely the alt-right will be able to successfully attack individuals. That’s why fish school and birds flock. Take a page from what works.

  2. In case you hadn’t noticed, the Russia ‘investigation’ is over. It was based on a false premise, and no evidence was found that Trump had colluded with the Russians (and if he had, it’s not a crime anyway). Special Counsels are supposed to be appointed to investigate a crime, not a person. Since collusion is not a crime, and since there has been no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians anyway, Mueller is now desperately searching for a crime to pin on Trump that could lead to impeachment. This is a total abuse of the justice system. Invading Trump’s private attorney’s office is an even worse abuse of the justice system. A lawyer once told me that if he (or any lawyer) could search the office of anybody, he would be able to produce evidence that the individual had committed a crime. That’s what’s going on now, and you, as an American, had better hope that this precedent (of forcefully taking possession of privileged communications between a lawyer and a client) is quashed before it becomes standard practice, because you, too, can be fired.

    Why would congress protect 2 people involved in huge crimes? If you do not know what the actual Russian collusion was, and who did it, you have missed the real story. Protecting DOJ officials is not the job of the legislature. However, they are doing so in the senate. Attack individuals? How about raiding cooperative people’s homes in the middle of the night? How about paying Russians to smear a candidate?

    Trump needs to fire Sessions and get a man in there who isn’t afraid of being assassinated because of real justice. As for Rosenstein, just another spit-polished member of the HIVE. Drain the Swamp. Alas, Trump yielding to the HIVE directive of starting a war with Russia is outrageous and will effect the support of his loyalists in the next election. That chemical attack was staged by Israel and he knows it, and he launched those missiles anyway. Now we know, as we have always known, who is really running America.
