    Rosenstein is not an 'elected' official, so Trump should have every right to fire him. I beleive that's correct..but Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Neither has happened yet. He met with WH chief of staff as the president is at an overseas gathering today. He is expected to meet with Trump on Thursday.

    RR wants to be fired, as it hands them ammunition. If he is not fired, he will undoubtedly have to resign, but may try to insist on some considerations in exchange. I don't expect him to get ANYTHING.

    In either case someone new takes over and full declas follows almost immediately.

    and then there is this interesting twist from today

    Did the IG recommend [RR] step down or be fired [speed]?
    Why was Rachel Brand removed?
    Q
    and did Sessions unrecuse himself?
    remember this from last week?

    SESSIONS CLAS LETTER TO SC JUSTICES 1&2 RE: RECUSAL, UNRECUSAL, AND CLARITY RE: CONFLICTS BASED ON UNCLASSIFIED MATERIAL [TODAY].
    HIGHEST COURT AUTHORITY APPROVAL
    Q
    all very interesting when combined with this:

    You are watching a game of chess. President Trump and his Administration are 12 moves ahead of the cabal. I will explain, but first lets review some recent DoJ history:


    Jeff Sessions: On November 18, 2016, President Trump nominated Jeff Sessions to become the 84th Attorney General of the United States. Mr. Sessions was confirmed by a very close 52-47 vote on February 8, 2017, and then sworn into office on February 9, 2017. On March 2, 2017, Mr. Sessions recused himself from Russia investigations. This was done by design - but that's another story.
    Rod Rosenstein: On February 1, 2017, President Trump nominated Rod Rosenstein to serve as the Deputy Attorney General. Mr. Rosenstein was confirmed by the Senate on April 25, 2017, in a a very favorable 94-6 vote.
    Noel Francisco: President Trump appointed Noel Francisco to the position of Solicitor General one year ago. Mr. Francisco was confirmed by the Senate in a very close vote (49-47) on September 19, 2017. Mr. Francisco was also sworn into office on September 19, 2017. Remember this date.

    Who is Rachel Brand?

    Rachel Brand served as Assistant Attorney General from May 22, 2017 to February 20, 2018 - a period of only nine months. The AAG is the third highest position in the DoJ. The MSM reported that Mrs. Brand resigned to accept a position at Walmart. There's more this story, but I'll leave it at this for now.

    The 210 Day Clock

    Succession within the DoJ is somewhat complicated, but I will break it down for you. Succession is determined by the Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 and DoJ Order 3777-2016 - the latter is a memo titled "Designating Certain Officials to Perform the Functions and Duties of the Attorney General" that was, ironically, penned by Loretta Lynch in 2016.

    The Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 references Title 5 of US Code 3345 which says:

    (a) If an officer of an Executive agency (including the Executive Office of the President, and other than the Government Accountability Office) whose appointment to office is required to be made by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, dies, resigns, or is otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office—

    (1) the first assistant to the office of such officer shall perform the functions and duties of the office temporarily in an acting capacity subject to the time limitations of section 3346;

    Enter Jesse Panuccio

    Thus, when Rachel Brand resigned her position as AAG on February 20, 2017, Jesse Panuccio, her deputy, became the temporary AAG. The amount of time that Mr. Panuccio can serve as temporary AAG is defined in section 3346 which states:

    (a) Except in the case of a vacancy caused by sickness, the person serving as an acting officer as described under section 3345 may serve in the office—

    (1) for no longer than 210 days beginning on the date the vacancy occurs; or

    Therefore, Jesse Panuccio can only serve as temporary AAG for 210 days. When does the 210 day clock expire? On September 18, 2018. So unless President Trump appoints someone else to become the next AAG over the next few hours, the DoJ's rules for succession will automatically determine who moves into the number 3 position in the DoJ. Who is this?

    I am of the mind that President Trump does not intend to appoint anyone to take Rachel Brand's position. I believe President Trump already made his decision on September 19, 2017. Further, I believe he intends for this person to take over the number 2 position at the DoJ. Before I explain how and why, let's determine who will replace Jesse Pannucio.

    The excerpt above is taken from Loretta Lynch's 2016 memo that defines succession within the DoJ - not only for the AG, but also for the DAG and the AAG. We see here that the Solicitor General is the next person in the line for succession. As mentioned previously, the current Solicitor General is Noel Francisco who was appointed by President Trump, confirmed by the Senate and then sworn into office on September 19, 2017.

    Did you catch it? This means Mr. Francisco will succeed Jesse Panuccio (temporary AAG) - and it's very likely that he will be sworn into that office on September 19, 2018 exactly one year later - to the day - that he was sworn in as Solicitor General. Further, this succession will happen automatically entirely removing President Trump from the process for the sake of optics. Remember, half of the country doesn't approve of anything President Trump does. Do you see the amazing chess moves taking place here? Do you see the amazing timing? President Trump is 12 months ahead of everyone - to the day.

    Further, I submit that these amazing chess moves won't end with Noel Francisco ascending to the #3 position of AAG on September 19. I also believe that Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Mr. Kavanaugh's committe vote will very likely overshadow Mr. Francisco's automatic ascendency to the #3 position of AAG in the media - it seems like this is being intentionally kept quiet. The gloves are about to come off. The President is ready to declassify the FISA warrants. This is putting enormous pressure on Mr. Rosenstein because we now know that his signature is on the fourth warrant. Mr. Rosenstein is being forced to do one of two things - (1) resign or (2) comply with House Republicans and declassify the redacted portions of the FISA documents being requested. Once this happens, and it will, Mr. Rosenstein is done - and I believe he will ultimately resign.

    If Rod Rosenstein resigns, Noel Francisco will become the next Deputy Attorney General - and I believe this is precisely what President Trump has had planned since nominating Mr. Francisco one year ago. Robert Mueller's new boss will be Noel Francisco. The deep state is about to be dealt a series of massive blows that will "bring down the house". This is the amazing game of chess being played by President Trump and those Patriots who surround him.

    meet Rosenstein's replacement.

    Francisco is currently the third-highest ranking official in the Department of Justice and would take over supervision of the Robert Mueller-run special counsel investigation, which has been ongoing since May 2017. Francisco would hypothetically have the authority to fire Mueller and end the investigation, were he to assume the new position.

    Francisco has rock-ribbed conservative credentials. He is a veteran clerk of late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia and worked for the George W. Bush legal team during the Florida recount and the Bush White House as associate counsel to President Bush. Francisco worked for the Department of Justice in the Bush administration before moving back to private practice, where he argued multiple cases before the Supreme Court.

    Interestingly, Francisco is no fan of special counsels and is a firm advocate for the president’s constitutional power to shape the bureaucracy around him. He rebuked the vast investigative authority of “career prosecutors” looking into presidential administrations and has argued before the Supreme Court that the president has the authority to directly hire-and-fire every federal official who are behaving in a “subordinate” manner.

    Francisco wrote, “The Constitution gives the president what the framers saw as the traditional means of ensuring accountability: the power to oversee executive officers through removal. The president is accordingly authorized under our constitutional system to remove all principal officers, as well as all ‘inferior officers’ he has appointed.”

    Francisco has also publicly rebuked former FBI Director James Comey for refusing to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her misuse of government email and classified information. The op-ed accuses Comey of treating Clinton with “kid gloves” and cow-towing to powerful “political interests” in the controversial 2016 case.

    Francisco has also come out on the record supporting some of the more more controversial policies of the administration, including Trump’s travel ban.

    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz recently raised the prospect of Noel Francisco being on the Supreme Court, were the Kavanaugh nomination to fall through.

    “Number one, U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco — he just argued and won the travel ban case in front of the Supreme Court — would make a phenomenal justice,” Cruz said.
