There is a bombshell report out right now that the Trump administration was rocked by saying that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year, suggested secretly recording President Trump to expose chaos in the White House and enlisting cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment to remove him from office.
The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump
Rod Rosenstein adamantly denied those accusations saying that the New York Times story is inaccurate in factually incorrect .
I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda.
But let me be clear about this, based on my personal dealings with the president there is no basis to invoke the 25th amendment but the article is sure to roll a White House already suspicious of some elements within the DOJ and FBI.
As Trump complains regularly about the Russia probe that he calls a witch-hunt Rod Rosenstein oversees that investigation, the explosive report published by the New York Times today said
” Rosenstein had discussed wearing a wire to take president Trump and pursuing his removal from office in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and FBI officials”
This would have been in the tumultuous days after James Comey was fired as FBI director with the president citing in part of a memo penned by Rod Rosenstein reportedly catching him off guard.
According to The New York Times none of Rod Rosenstein’s proposals were acted upon and it remains unclear the level of Syria seriousness Rod Rosenstein had when making those suggestions
