While the media was salivating over salacious revelations in a new tell-all book about the Trump campaign due out next week, a potentially major development in the Trump-Russia investigation flew completely under the radar all day.

In a span of three minutes Wednesday afternoon, Scott Wong, a staff writer for The Hill, spotted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the Capitol building on his way to meet with House Majority Leader Paul Ryan (R-WI), and confirmed the meeting was about the Russia investigation.

Wong live tweeted his encounter as it happened:

“Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and FBI Director Wray asked to meet with the speaker and we accommodated the request,”  AshLee Strong, Paul Ryan’s spokesperson, told The Hill.  “I’d refer you to their offices for anything further.”

Rosenstein’s boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, was forced to recuse himself from all Russia related matters when reports revealed that he had meetings with Russian officials during the campaign that he failed to disclose in both  sworn testimony and on security forms he filled out.  That left Rosenstein to oversee special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, keeping Sessions, a key Trump loyalist, completely shut out and unable to advocate for the president in any way.

The meeting at the Capitol today took place in plain sight, with video capturing Rosenstein leaving Speaker Ryan’s office in broad daylight.

No further details on the meeting have been made available, other than the Russia investigation was the topic.  That lack of detail should be of little comfort to the president and his dwindling ban of supporters.

When the man overseeing the investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election requests a meeting with the speaker of the house – an receives it within hours – it must be serious.

Not only is Speaker Ryan the man who would oversee impeachment hearings in congress should special counsel Mueller recommend them, he’s the third man in line for the presidency, behind only Vice President Mike Pence.

With Pence exposed for false statements he’s made about Michael Flynn and other matters, the prospect of a President Ryan in the near future isn’t that far fetched.
