This case goes places that very few have…..
Robert Mueller’s boss Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein it turns out was given a Q & A back in June or July about the Trump firing of then FBI Director James Comey….
Rosenstein’s boss Attorney General Sessions will most likely also undergo a Q & A by Mueller’s people, if it hasn’t already happen….

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office has interviewed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about President Donald Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, according to people familiar with the investigation.
The interview, which occurred in June or July, presents the unusual situation of investigators questioning the person directly overseeing their probe. Mr. Mueller’s office is investigating Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election, whether any associates of Mr. Trump coordinated with Moscow’s efforts, and related matters.
Mr. Mueller as special counsel has a good deal of independence, but he ultimately answers to Mr. Rosenstein, because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation.
The special counsel’s handling of the interview could be a sign that Mr. Mueller’s team doesn’t view Mr. Rosenstein as a central witness in its probe, as the deputy attorney general hasn’t withdrawn himself from overseeing it since that interview. A key witness would likely have to take such a step.
“It is unusual,” said Peter Zeidenberg, a former federal prosecutor. “But my inference is that they are not viewing him as a potential critical witness, because either the testimony isn’t that critical or there are other people that can say the same thing.”
Ian Prior, a spokesman for the Justice Department, said in a statement, “As the deputy attorney general has said numerous times, if there comes a time when he needs to recuse, he will. However, nothing has changed.”…..
