5. Rosenstein was between a rock and hard place

I think we all know that. He had no intention of being used as cover while Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey in order to stop the Trussia investigation. On the other hand he knew if he refused a direct order from the President, he'd be fired in 3 seconds and replaced by a Trumpish toady.

So what would anybody do in that situation? Rosenstein tried to cause the least damage, but then it came back to bite him in the butt. It's a classic no-win situation.
