This is personal speculation based on very little consideration, but it strikes me that Barr may have decided that there was no way out of this mess for him, and he may have asked Rosenstein to stay on so that if he (Barr) is forced to do things that cause havoc and make the Strumpers all furious, he can basically say, hey, Rosenstein knew what I knew, and there was no way for me to make it all go away.

WELL, I lied and ended up falling backward into more reporting on the whole mess.  :whatever:

People are claiming sources claiming that there's anywhere from 0 to 40 sealed indictments already in place but not yet made public.  This would be consistent with 'no new indictments' / 'no further indictments soon', but dunno if it's true.

Seth Abramson is keen to point out that the Mueller investigation feeds information into counterintelligence and Congressional investigations but doesn't cover them.  So the Mueller Report says nothing about any findings, indictments, or timelines for those investigations, never mind SDNY / DC's prosecutions, any lawsuits, and so on.

Mueller's office is (apparently) done issuing criminal indictments related to a piece of the collusion thing, but they're still working because they aren't actually done with their investigation.  Flynn and Stone and Butina are still being prosecuted and squeezed for juice, and the Special Prosecutor is cooperating with a bunch of other investigations.

Mueller has made an unknown number of recommendations for prosecution to the DOJ on an unknown number of unknown defendants.  :nonplused:  Where that goes, only Barr and Rosenstein can currently guess.

And the Dems are at least saying they'll subpoena the entire report if Barr doesn't release it.  We'll see.  They can also simply subpoena Mueller himself.

Some commentators were saying there are still about two dozen sealed indictments already in place.  I can't stand reading thirty-five articles about this that are still just parroting the same blah-blah, so I'm not sure WTF is actually going on.

No new indictments? Really?

There's no way this outfit is any less crooked than Nixon's. This SUCKS.

I think there's a better angle on this problem, but I'm just :popcorn: over here.  It's all good.

Right, fair enough, but I'd at least like to know what the sender was hoping.  Any time I pull over to look and see why my phone went off, it's nothing I needed to stop for.  Any time I don't, it was something I should've responded to immediately.

It's the stupid synchronous / asynchronous problem.  Telecom people no longer seem to understand this distinction.
