Robert Mueller is nearing the end of his two year long witch hunt against President Trump.
But as the Special Counsel begins to wind down his work, he’s in for a rude surprise.
Mueller’s top lieutenant just made a shocking admission about his own future that could change everything.
Robert Mueller has had his name plastered above countless headlines for nearly two years.
The Special Counsel, officially charged with investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, has instead turned his investigation into a partisan witch hunt against President Trump.
But even with Mueller working overtime to take down the President, he has had to deal with numerous speed bumps along the way.
And this last development could derail his work in a major way.
Breitbart reports, “Appearing before University of Pennsylvania students Thursday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said his time at the Department of Justice is ‘coming to an end.’”
Rod Rosenstein made headlines last year when it was revealed that he had discussed wearing a hidden wire while meeting with President Trump.
He has overseen Robert Mueller’s investigation for the past two years.
As Deputy Attorney General, Rosenstein was also implicated in an apparent plot to overthrow President Trump via the 25th Amendment, which if activated would see the President deposed and potentially removed from office.
Rosenstein has since been on rocky terms with the President, for obvious reasons.
These revelations, coupled with Mueller’s presumed finishing of the Russia investigation in the near future, suggest that Rosenstein already has one foot out of the door.
Indeed, President Trump has already signaled who he intends to replace Rosenstein with.
“On Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced he intends to nominate Jeffrey Rosen, a seasoned litigator and deputy transportation secretary, to replace Rosenstein,” reports Breitbart.
Rosenstein meanwhile has already begun to make moves signaling his departure, and his comments at the University of Pennsylvania only reinforce the growing theory in Washington that the Deputy Attorney General will be leaving his post in March.
“People joke about the revolving door between government and the private sector. The door never revolved for me. It was one way in, and one way out,” said Rosenstein.
President Trump has taken no expense to slam Rosenstein for his past actions, especially in light of the 25th Amendment plot to remove him as President.
“He [disgraced FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe] and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions, look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught,” Trump said on Friday.
In a statement from the Justice Department, Rosenstein has denied the allegations made by McCabe on 60 Minutes that the Justice Department was working to lobby cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment.
“As to the specific portions of this interview provided to the Department of Justice by 60 Minutes in advance, the Deputy Attorney General again rejects Mr. McCabe’s recitation of events as inaccurate and factually incorrect.”
Do you think Rod Rosenstein will be leaving his post soon?
