31. Beer Bong Brett.

He reminds me of those guys who were always at college parties who'd try to get girls drunk, they'd figure out he was a jerk after about 5 minutes, & he'd be spotted barfing in the bushes as they left to go home with their friends.

I wonder, is this is a "you're not the boss of me" filing?

6. "Rosenstein's Attorney"?

His personal lawyer? A DoJ employee?

Anonymous Fed sounds like a DU GD poster responding to the TV.

7. Rosenstein's attorney?

His personal attorney?

One of the attorney's under him at the DOJ?

Can Rosenstein still announce indictments after Whitaker took over?

So many questions.

10. Rosenstein may well be contesting Trump's naming of Whittaker as Acting AG...

THus, his own representing lawyer sent. Rosenstein would likely be the only one with standing to do so.

11. yes!! if my guess is right, he's seeking an injunction to prevent whitaker from taking over as a.g.

my understanding is that whitaker isn't legally qualified for the post because he's not been confirmed by the senate.

until such time, rosenstein is acting attorney general because he's the deputy a.g. and there's a vacancy in the a.g. post.

14. i don't know how this plays out.

let's say the courts agree, rosenstein is acting a.g.

donnie raises a ruckus and demands the senate immediately confirm whitaker or any other stooge.

is the senate really going to say no to donnie at this stage?
maybe this lame duck senate doesn't confirm him, but surely the next on will quickly in january.

so at best we have a couple months. that may be enough to get indictments in, but certainly not enough to get things to trial.

once a stooge is confirmed, the doj can basically just drop the cases donnie doesn't like.

25. or... Trump fires Rosenstein, #3 at DOJ steps up to be AG

That's the most obvious move.

If #3 doesn't comply, Trump keeps firing until he finds a Bork.

26. yeah, it's definitely got a saturday night massacre feel to it.

seems he was trying to short-circuit it by trying to appoint bork -- er, whitaker -- directly.
