The New York Times released another bombshell report today indicating that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein suggested wearing a wire to tape President Trump in the hopes of catching him saying something in which they could invoke the 25th Amendment which addresses the removal of an unfit Commander-In-Chief. The comments reportedly happened shortly after James Comey was fired as head of the FBI.
The extraordinary allegations, depicting a panic-stricken No. 2 official at the Justice Department who has been a target of the President in the past, immediately raised questions about Rosenstein’s future.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the top official at the department, was “upset” and “concerned” upon reading the Times story, according to a source close to him. Former Justice Department officials went into damage control mode trying to dismiss former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe’s recollection of his interactions with Rosenstein.
The McCabe memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources familiar with the matter. Rosenstein oversees Mueller’s investigation into possible links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and recently secured the cooperation of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
The soap opera continues. Man, maybe Trump is right to be so paranoid. Everyone seems out to get him…well, you reap what you sow…
