Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is allegedly preparing for the possibility he may soon be fired from his position, according to a Friday report.

Rosenstein seems aware he might lose his job, but is not very concerned with the possibility, a source who discussed it with the deputy attorney general told NBC News.

Other sources told NBC News that in private conversations Rosenstein has taken to repeating the famous Martin Luther phrase “Here I stand.”

Some Democrats believe that a firing in the administration is imminent and are trying to plan protests against the potential action. Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jim Himes reportedly sent out an email to various activists saying he believes either Attorney General Jeff Session, FBI Director Rod Rosenstein, or special counsel Robert Mueller will lose their job in the next two days.

“That in the next 48 hours, it is more likely than not that the President acts against Attorney General Sessions, Deputy AG Rosenstein, and/or Special Counsel Mueller. His intent will be to end Mueller’s investigation,” the leaked emails obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation read.
