No one knows whether Rod Rosenstein will be deputy attorney general past Thursday, just as no one knew whether he'd been fired or dumped during the media craziness over his sojourn to the White House.

Fairly or unfairly, the media widely view Rod Rosenstein — Harvard Law grad, Republican, former U.S. attorney in Baltimore — as the one man who can ensure the integrity of the Mueller investigation.
