Andrew McCarthy explains Rosenstein

A pretty good summary of Rosenstain's thinking, I think. Rosenstein is clearly not a Trump ally and cannot be trusted, but he's also difficult to fire without paying a significant political cost. Immediately after Comey was fired, he was clearly invested in the plan to remove Trump. He may have been being sarcastic when he suggested wearing a wire to record Trump and using the 25th amendment to remove him, but it was sarcasm with a grain of truth. He did appoint a special counsel, with Mueller as the cover-up artist.

He's trying to please both sides (at least, enough to keep his job) and it is simply not possible.
