NYT: Rod Rosenstein Plotted to Remove Trump From Office

According to the New York Times, in the aftermath of the Comey firing, Rod Rosenstein suggested wearing a wire in meetings with President Trump and that he also volunteered to recruit the cabinet members, in order to invoke the 25th Amendment. That sounds a lot like treason to me. Sedition at the very least. Rosenstein allegedly made the remarks to DOJ and FBI officials shortly after the firing of James Comey. Rosenstein wrote a letter before Comey was fired approving of the move and also said afterwards there were more reasons to fire Comey than were revealed publicly.

According to The Times:

Mr. Rosenstein made the remarks about secretly recording Mr. Trump and about the 25th Amendment in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and F.B.I. officials. Several people described the episodes, insisting on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The people were briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by F.B.I. officials, including Andrew G. McCabe, then the acting bureau director, that documented Mr. Rosenstein’s actions and comments.

From The Daily Caller

Rosenstein, who is overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, also reportedly told McCabe that he could potentially persuade Attorney General Jeff Sessions and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. (RELATED: Trump Must Fire Rod Rosenstein Immediately)

Rosenstein disputed The Times’ reporting, calling it “inaccurate and 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,” he said. “But let me be clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”

This is getting more interesting every single day.
