On Jan. 5, Rosenstein traveled to Florida to speak to the Palm Beach Forum Club about the rule of law. Below, we offer a breakdown of the major players. He also served on Donald Trump's transition team. Trump has consistently denied any such sollusion. ("The Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee refused to answer when a colleague asked him if he had coordinated his incendiary surveillance memo with the White House, The Daily Beast has learned.") This would be such a ludicrous, ham-handed effort to interfere clumsily and blatantly with the investigation that it might actually be true.
Sessions went off-script at the event to praise Rosenstein, saying he represents "the kind of quality and leadership that we want" at the Justice Department.

If Trump fired Rosenstein, he would be able to appoint a new deputy AG who could fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and therefore bring the FBI's Russian Federation investigation to a close. Whatever happens with the memo, it's all the more clear that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian involvement in the 2016 race must continue.
Rosenstein, who had been confirmed by the Senate 94 to 6 and was known as an independent and apolitical prosecutor, was harshly attacked for his role in the Comey firing. "If the president uses this fake, frightful release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [deputy attorney general Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis". And there's no sense that Rachel Brand, the current No. 3 at the Justice Department, would be viewed any more favorably by Trump. The suspect memo is his latest trick.
"This lawsuit plainly seeks to interfere with Manafort's ongoing criminal prosecution", Justice Department attorneys wrote to Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Friday.
