Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz predicted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will no longer be working for the Department of Justice after November’s midterm elections.

“I think he’s done. He’s not going to be the deputy attorney general after the election,” Dershowitz said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. (RELATED: Alan Dershowitz Says There Is ‘No Evidence Whatsoever’ Of Kavanugh’s Guilt Then Gives Democrats A Gender Psychology Lesson)

Dershowitz said the only question now is when President Donald Trump will choose to terminate Rosenstein and whether he will use the firing to motivate the GOP’s base ahead of the election.

“The question is only now of timing — whether or not the president wants to fire him, whether he would prefer to have him resign, whether he wants him to become an election issue,” he continued. “What happens in terms of succession? Who replaces him? What impact it has on [special counsel Robert] Mueller.”

“But if you ask me who is going to be the deputy attorney general of the United States starting January of next year, it will not be Rod Rosenstein,” Dershowitz concluded.
