4. "Rod is a survivor" -- I don't think Comey meant that as a compliment

Rod is going to do what is good for Rod. He wrote the "Comey should be fired" letter because it was good for himself to do so -- his boss and boss's boss already made it clear they were firing Comey, so refusing would just mean his firing too.

Then Trump and Sessions threw him under the bus, so he did what was good for salvaging his reputation and appointed a Special Counsel. While Sessions was AG, letting Mueller do his thing without interference was good for Rod because Sessions was recused and Mueller's rep was above reproach (in corporate media anyway). Now that he's got a boss again, doing his boss's bidding is what is best for Rod, so he is.
