Slo-mo Saturday Night Massacre

Trump has decided he will not release the memo the Democrats in the House intelligence committee wrote as a correction to the memo the Republicans of that committee wrote and Trump released last week (who didn't see this coming?) ... Trump Blocks Release of Memo Rebutting Republican Claims

That Republican memo, crafted by Trump's minion, Nunes, was intended to put acting AG Rod Rosenstein in a bad light, the better for Trump to justify firing him.

Rosenstein oversees the Mueller investigation, of course, and with him fired and replaced, Rachel Brand would have then been in charge of the Mueller investigation. Now she has left her job in the DOJ in order to work for Walmart ... Rod Rosenstein’s Next-In-Command Is Leaving DOJ. Are We Headed for a Massacre?

And so who would now take over Rosenstein's job of controlling the Mueller investigation if Rosenstein is fired by Trump? Someone Trump appointed, Noel Francisco, a conservative who argued before the Supreme Court in cases like Zubik v. Burwell (anti-contraception) ... If Rosenstein Goes, Here’s Who Takes Over the Trump-Russia Investigation

How convenient.
