Rod Rosenstein has offered Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly, his resignation after it was revealed that he offered to wear a wire against the president and to recruit cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment. This is huge news in that a new person will now be overseeing the Mueller investigation and it could spell the end to that witch hunt. It is not yet known if Kelly accepted the resignation or would accept the resignation, but unless he is mentally incapacitated, Kelly should jump on the resignation as quickly as he possibly can.
Rosenstein verbally resigned to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Monday morning, Axios reported. Rosenstein’s as-yet unconfirmed resignation came as he had been “expecting to be fired,” claimed Axios’ source.
The resignation also comes days after a New York Times report revealed that Rosenstein suggested secretly recording President Trump in the White House to build a case for invoking the 25th Amendment and removing Trump from office for being unfit. Rosenstein allegedly suggested the secret recording in April of last year, after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
US envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley denied that anyone within Trump’s administration actually discussed using the 25th Amendment to topple the president, and called such rumors “absurd.”
Big breaking story emerging here in Washington. Rod Rosenstein – the man who oversees the Russia probe – has resigned, multiple US outlets reporting. That means someone new will be in charge of Mueller. Developing…

Everyone should pray that Kelly accepts the resignation, so the country can move on and Democrats be prosecuted.
