Don’t forget the other big event of the day, besides the Kavanaugh testimony, the meeting between Rod Rosenstein and Trump.

Yep, it’s a big day today.

President Donald Trump’s big meeting with embattled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is Thursday, but it may not be the kind of showdown some people expect.

Trump has not made up his mind whether he will fire Rosenstein over reports he once talked about invoking the 25th Amendment to seek the president’s removal, administration officials said, and he is getting plenty of advice in both directions.

It is very possible the deputy attorney general will stay on for the foreseeable future, said the officials speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an internal matter.

“Nothing’s a done deal,” one official said.

Heading into the Rosenstein meeting, officials said Trump has been focused on this week’s meetings at the United Nations and the controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers, is scheduled to testify at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday at 10 a.m. – the same day Trump will be meeting with Rosenstein at the White House.

My take on this whole Rod Rosenstein thing is that if things start to go south for Kavanugh that Trump might well fire his Deputy Attorney General to change the narrative and distract the media. 

However I have every confidence that then news outlets can cover both stories adequately.

    ““If you want to see the moment where Donald Trump said, ‘I am running for president,’ it was when Barack Obama mocked and ridiculed him at the Washington Correspondent Dinner,” he said. “That’s the moment he said, ‘I’ll get even.’”

    Brzezinski recalled how Trump refused to read jokes poking fun at himself for an Alfalfa Dinner, because he simply didn’t understand self-deprecating humor — and Scarborough said that deep insecurity would keep him from seeking re-election.

    “I still think, and I think I remain alone in western civilization, I don’t think he’s going to run in 2020,” Scarborough said. “He’s done it, he’s done the gig. Everybody that’s close to him says what he fears, he fears losing a hell of a lot more than he likes winning, and it’s just not going to be worth the risk.”

    NEXT WEEK NOW…

    “White House moves Trump-Rosenstein meeting to next week so as not to interfere with hearing
    From CNN’s Kevin Liptak
    White House press secretary Sarah Sanders just announced the previously announced meeting between President Trump and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wouldn’t happen today, and instead would be moved to next week.

    “The President spoke with Rod Rosenstein a few minutes ago and they plan to meet next week. They do not want to do anything to interfere with the hearing,””

    Musk told his more than 22 million Twitter followers on Aug. 7 that he might take Tesla private at $420 per share, and that there was “funding secured.”

    According to the SEC, Musk “knew or was reckless in not knowing” that his tweets about taking Tesla private at $420 a share were false and misleading, given that he had never discussed such a transaction with any funding source.

    The SEC said he also knew he had not satisfied other contingencies when he declared unequivocally that only a shareholder vote would be needed.

    It’s been rescheduled.

    What is being lost in this sideshow is that the Senate will be voting to confirm 26 more judges to the lower courts and among them yet another “unqualified “ Deplorable. They’re stacking the courts with Deplorables in lifetime positions and no one is paying attention. The U. S. is becoming like Turkey or Poland. One step away from a FASCIST STATE.
