New York Times report claims Rod Rosenstein wanted to secretly record Donald Trump and invoke the 25th amendment

September 21, 2018

  A report in the New York Times today claims that Rod Rosenstein wanted to secretly record Donald Trump in the Oval Office and then use that recording to convince cabinet members to remove the President using the 25th amendment. Here is more about this blockbuster report:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein proposed secretly recording conversations in the Oval Office with President Trump last year and discussed the possibility of Cabinet officials invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president, according to a New York Times report.

The Times, citing people familiar with the matter, reported on Friday that Rosenstein made comments to other Justice Department officials in meetings in spring 2017 about secretly recording Trump after the president fired FBI Director James Comey that May.

The allegations are said to be laid out in contemporaneous memos written by then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired by the Justice Department earlier this year amid an internal leak probe.

In the discussions, Rosenstein reportedly floated the possibility of recruiting Cabinet members, such as Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, now the White House chief of staff, behind an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment.

Rod Rosenstein is calling this fake news:

“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” Rosenstein said in a statement issued by the Justice Department. “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,” he added.

  Others are claiming Rod Rosenstein was being sarcastic but we all remember that old adage about true words and jesting, think about it, who would even think of joking like that if there was not a feeling of truth behind it?

  What we have learned from the Democrats in the Brett Kavanaugh situation is that there is no such thing as due process any more and people like him should simply step down based on the accusations alone, so I would argue based on the logic of the Democrats that these charges are serious enough for Rod Rosenstein to either step down immediately or be fired.

      There is a theory being floated out there that the NYT wrote this story to try to get Trump to fire Rosenstein…

        Right, divert attention from the con/ruse they’re playing against Kavanaugh.
        RR plotting to get POTUS Trump removed, because he’s not “one of them.”
        “Oh, So, Deputy AG Rosenstein Was Joking About Wearing A Wire To Ensnare Trump?” Townhall
        Hell forbid someone of good standing (not under the pitiful perv thumb of the deep state/shadow gov.) get in into SCOTUS!
        “Sen. Kamala Harris, for instance, immediately described Kavanaugh as a deadly threat, saying, “his nomination presents an existential threat to the health care of hundreds of millions of Americans.”
        A “deadly threat” to the parasites is a WIN FOR US!
        Down with the first-class hypocrites! of destruction and ruin.
