Reasonable article, which implies that come January, when the Mueller probe has not ended (as Ty Cobb keeps telling Trump), Trump will take his rage out on Rod Rosenstein, deputy attorney general, replacing him with a more pliable candidate, who will be more conducive to seeing things the Trump way, concerning the investigation.

Not entirely implausible, and possibly likely, since getting rid of Mueller might create more problems, than it may solve. It seems from the article, that Trump has no love loss for Rosenstein.

I am not sure why Trump would believe the investigation would wrap up in January, given the fact that Manafort and Gates might not even go to trial until early spring. Methinks his lawyers may be coddling him, feeding him the 'rosy' picture, rather than the real one.

Another article, indicating Mueller is likely nowhere near done;
