2. Right, routine meeting to decide whether to serve Burger King or McDonald's at the next

luncheon.

NO such thing as a routine meeting with fuckface, he meets with people only and always for self greed reasons.

6. trump doesn't actually have the nerve to fire someone to their face. Comey and Tillerson were both..

out of town when they were fired and trump didn't even do the dirty deed himself. He had someone else do it.

7. Here is what is happening

Is your understanding that the president is correct in asserting that he has the power to fire the special counsel?
Technically speaking, the president would have to first repeal the regulation that is in place in the Department of Justice [governing Mueller's job]. Now, it is within the president’s power to direct the acting attorney general for this purpose—Rod Rosenstein—to rescind the regulation, and then [Trump] could direct him to fire Mueller.

Rod will either agree to repeal the the regulation so Mueller can be fired or he wont. But I bet that is what the meeting was about.

9. Aha! So Rosenstain actually has to make the move. Let's see what happens then.

He's held his ground so far.

3. If drumpf attempts to fire anyone in Justice, it will only make things

much more severe for him. It will stop nothing and imo intensify the investigation to indict him on a multitude of charges.

4. My concern is if Feds are forced to stop and all hinges on NYS AG, they arent looking

at conspiracy with Russia as far as I know.

Now of course rump and friends are guilty of many felonies I am sure, and that will come out, as long as something sticks real hard I will be happy.

8. When Trump fires people they hear about it on the news. So Rod is safe. IMHO

11. What does the timing look like.

 

Is there any chance Rosenstein was there to negotiate an interview and it was clearly a no-go?
