Update: Literally no one has any idea what’s going on anymore.

After Donald Trump managed to stop himself from firing Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein last Friday — and Sean Hannity pleaded with him not to, claiming it was all a Democratic trap — I thought we’d make it at least until the Kavanaugh hearings were over, or the midterms before Trump fired Rosenstein.

Apparently, according to Axios, Rod Rosenstein is going to take the timing of that decision out of Trump’s hands. They are reporting that Rosenstein has verbally resigned to Chief of Staff John Kelly, in anticipation of being fired.

Recall that Rosenstein reportedly suggested that the President be taped in an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment. There’s some debate about whether he was being serious or sarcastic.

If Rosenstein actually resigns instead of being fired, what does that mean? God knows. It may make it easier for Trump to end the Mueller probe, though that won’t help him before the midterms — it will set the left off — and it may also set up another battle over the next Deputy AG ahead of the elections.

It certainly makes those midterm elections all the more important, because one or two Democratically controlled arms of Congress will be the only defense the country has against Trump.

NBC is also reporting that Rosenstein has been summoned to the White House, where others are reporting he will be fired.

Or maybe he won’t be fired.
