Looks to me like Rod Rosenstein saved America

and that with these convictions America is pulling through the orange disaster and will be stronger for it. There's a strong chance none of that would have happened without Rosenstein's non-partisan move to do the right thing.

When all is said and done he deserves a Medal of Freedom.

I'm feeling more optimistic with every flip.

1. Not yet, but it's a damn good start.

 

I wish it was over & all in the rearview mirror already.

Actually it never should have happened to a nation like the USA at all.

2. Don't start doing a victory lap yet

if Trump fired Sessions and moved an already approved toady over to AG on an interim basis and the toady fired Rosenstein & Mueller, I doubt we'd get much more than few sternly worded statements and tweets from the GOP.

3. We're halfway up Everest... and once we reach the summit we'll have to make it down to solid ground.

Still, encouraging news on our long haul.

We were made for these times.

4. And Al Franken...

... whose astute grilling of Attorney General Sessions before the Senate panel made it necessary for Sessions to recuse himself, and for Rosenstein instead to be the one to choose the special prosecutor and oversee the investigation.

11. I'm pretty sure Al Franken got a tip on that

Someone who already knew what was written in the Steele Dossier tipped off Al to be sure and get Sessions on the record. His questioning was masterful too! I hope Al Franken visits DU from time to time, and he must know he has a lot of friends here.

Now this is not the end.
It is not even the beginning of the end.
But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

7. Rosenstein and Mueller will deserve our eternal thanks.

Not only will it oust the orange con-man but it will expose the inherent lifelong corruption of the Republican Party.

9. They should have the next two Ford class carriers named after them.

And Reagan International should be renamed Robert S. Mueller III International.

Robert S. Mueller III International has a nice ring to it.

Robert Reich has a great annulment dream...I wish it could realistically be done.

13. Thank you for saying this!!! We forget that, but for Rosenstein...NONE of this would be happening.

It was Rosenstein who immediately named and authorized MUELLER to do an investigation into the Russia issue, after Trump fired Comey. This means he'd already foreseen this and decided on, and had spoken with, Mueller.

Then he has been FIRM, ethical, honest, and FIRM FIRM FIRM, in continuing to oversee the investigation, no matter the threats, the insults.

But for Rosenstein, the Mueller investigation would not exist. The indictments would have not been handed down. The offshoot litigation and investigations would probably not exist (against the Trump charity, tax evasion, etc.).

Thank God for straight arrow civil servants who do their jobs, instead of pledge loyalty toward a single person.

14. this goes to show you

Not ALL republicans are Trump-loving fascist assholes, i.e., Rosenstein, Mueller, etc.
Some do take the Constitution and the law more seriously than their political leanings, just not many in the US Congress.

18. I don't think he saved America

But rather gave us the means for us to wake up and do what we can to save America. Ultimately it is up to us and the sacrifice we are going to be willing to make. Our hope can not come from government, as government is now too corrupt to assist. It's up to each and everyone of us now to figure out what we are going to do to save our country.

21. K&R, agree. Armchair quarterbacking won't solve anything.

Fortunately, DU is brimming with folks that are doing a lion's share of good works and contributions.

I don't think our government is very corrupt (relative to many others) regarding the everyday bureaus that serve us, but far too many of our elected politicians certainly are.
