Rod Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment

Quote:
The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit.

Mr. Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017 when Mr. Trumpís firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director plunged the White House into turmoil. Over the ensuing days, the president divulged classified intelligence to Russians in the Oval Office, and revelations emerged that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Comey to pledge loyalty and end an investigation into a senior aide.

“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” he[Rosenstein] said in a statement. “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.”
I would hope people don't start blindly trusting anonymous sources now.

Seems to me that recording the POTUS in his office without his knowledge just might be a criminal offense.

Trump should completely clean house at the DOJ. Start from scratch and put in true believers. Let Kelly, Mattis and Pompeo hand pick candidates for the top positions. Can anyone say Trey Gowdy?

The hypocritical New York Times.

Rosenstein is an obama holdover, and a subverter. He needs to be removed and tried for a multitude of crimes.

NEver heard of him before.

Argument still remains the same though. Every single week another mess in this White House.

The Dems will have zero problem getting someone elected. They could even run out Snuffleupagus and win the election.

They ran her against Trump.

I was talking to some people at lunch today. The Dems could have ran anyone but her and probably won, but the picked the only person on the political scene whose personal ethics are more disgusting than Trumps.

Trump leaked the story to his buddies at the Times to justify firing Rosenstein.

It is likely not true and just Trump (like he does) spinning a story.

Trump has friends at the Times? Name names or be quiet.

If the story is true I don't see this as being on the white house. It would be on the DOJ that many already view as corrupt.

It is not the White House. Rosenstein is in the Dept of 'Justice'. Get in the game.


As for the election; if it were held today Trump would win by a wider margin.

Maggie Haberman

Maybe the leaker is John Barron - he is known to give secret tips about Donald.

Trump wanted to declassify and release a ton of stuff. He hadn't read it all. The intel community was against, but here's my guess as to something not on the record:

I bet his own people said the memos don't paint the ugly picture you want them to paint. We've been here before with the IG report, ReleaseTheMemo etc. The leaks and spin we can put around the unreleased memos will be far worse than what they actually contain. So let them linger in some declassification review, but we'll go out with a leaked version of what's in them. By the time the memos come out and disprove the leaks, the damage will have been done. Now he is shifting gears and attacking Rosenstein because at this point he is freaking out with the thought of Mueller speaking to Cohen/Manafort and others.

It's hard to take people like you seriously in a political discussion when you have no idea what you're crying about.

HA HA HA!!!!
Before today, all you guys were screaming about how the NYT was NOT to be believed....It was just SOOOO biased -- not to mention the use of anonymous sources was the epitome of evil journalism.
Now, you love it all.

You're talking about whether or not to take someone else seriously?

In his defense, you just gotta know Dorcie (aka Steve).

He's easily triggered.

Yeah, remember when all the "disciples" on here condemned it as "fake news"?

Now it's the paper of record on this forum.

Rod is obviously smart enough to know that the 25A scenario isnít even plausible...removing him via impeachment has higher odds of success.

This is probs fake news.
