Rod Rosenstein Not Ousted as Deputy Attorney General. For Now.
Brendan Smialowski/GettyIt was a rough morning for the Justice Department.

Shortly before 11 a.m., multiple reports emerged that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein-who oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe-was on his way out. A source familiar with the situation told The Daily Beast that he was headed to the White House, where he expected to be fired.

A New York Times story published on Friday precipitated the crisis, reporting that the deputy attorney general talked about covertly recording President Donald Trump and having his cabinet members team up to oust him. Rosenstein said the report was wrong. A Justice Department source told The Daily Beast that the mood soured over the weekend, as the Times stood by its story and some Rosenstein allies privately conceded that he made the remarks (though sarcastically).

Kellyanne Conway Goes From Believing Kavanaugh Accuser to Blaming ‘Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy'
CBS/ScreenshotA second woman coming forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct may force many observers to view him less favorably, it appears to have done the opposite for Kellyanne Conway.

Whereas last Monday, the counselor to the president was willing to give Christine Blasey Ford the benefit of the doubt, she came out swinging this morning against what she described as a "vast left-wing conspiracy" trying to take down Trump's man.

"This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored," Conway told Fox & Friends a week ago, setting the tone for Trump, who was surprising measured in response to the allegations—until he came face to face with Sean Hannity a few days later and started questioning Dr. Ford's credibility.

Trump Lawyers Demand Mueller Probe ‘Time Out' if Rosenstein is Ousted
Saul Loeb/GettyPresident Donald Trump's legal team is calling for a pause of the investigation into Russian election meddling should deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation, resign or be fired.

"If in fact Rod Rosenstein does end up resigning today," Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said on his radio program on Monday, "I think it clearly becomes necessary and appropriate...that there be a step back taken here, and a review, a review that has to be thorough and complete...and basically a time out on this inquiry."

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's lawyer and former New York City mayor, told The Daily Beast on Monday afternoon that he agrees with Sekulow's call for a cessation of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, in the event of Rosenstein's ouster—which was reported to be near as of Monday morning.

Dr. Barbara Ransby: What the Defamation of Anita Hill Can Teach Us About the Kavanaugh Hearings
News that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford will testify Thursday against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has prompted many to warn senators not to repeat the mistakes of the Anita Hill hearings of 1991, when Hill was questioned by an all-male, all-white Senate Judiciary Committee over her allegations that then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her in the workplace. In the weeks after Hill testified, nearly 1,600 black feminists organized as "African American Women in Defense of Ourselves" and signed a manifesto published in an advertisement in _The New York Times_. We speak with historian, author and activist Barbara Ransby, one of the initiators of the manifesto, who is now a professor of African American studies, gender and women's studies and history at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
