Probably a good move.
We’ve got this Kavanaugh thing going on.
President Donald Trump postponed a scheduled meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday, in order to not distract from congressional hearings for his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
“The president spoke with Rod Rosenstein a few minutes ago and they plan to meet next week,” press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters. “They do not want to do anything to interfere with the hearing.”
The White House said earlier this week that the purpose of Trump and Rosenstein’s meeting would be to discuss the deputy attorney general’s future at the Justice Department, amid conflicting reports Monday that Rosenstein was either planning to resign or expecting to be fired.
By midweek, however, Trump appeared to have moved away from the idea of firing Rosenstein. “My preference would be to keep him,” Trump said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon in New York. “I would certainly prefer not” firing him.
I still don’t think he should fire him. I think that’s part of the plan.
He needs to be forced to testify or have the McCabe memos released, which would result in resignation. Or he needs to be impeached. This isn’t Trump’s job.
