NY Times Reports Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump & Discussed 25th Amendment (Update: Rosenstein Denies)
THE FOX IN THE HEN HOUSE …
The New York Times is reporting that deputy attorney general, Rod 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. The information is reported to have come from memos written by Andrew McCabe, then the acting FBI director. McCabe declined to comment. According to a lawyer for Mr. McCabe, his clients memos have been turned over to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, in the investigation into whether Trump associates conspired with Russia’s election interference. Interesting.
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. Trump’s 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.
Mr. Rosenstein was just two weeks into his job. He had begun overseeing the Russia investigation and played a key role in the president’s dismissal of Mr. Comey by writing a memo critical of his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. But Mr. Rosenstein was caught off guard when Mr. Trump cited the memo in the firing, and he began telling people that he feared he had been used.
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.
If true, Rosenstein needs to be fired immediately. But is it true and one might want to consider the source of this leak. Was it McCabe or maybe the special counsel. Regardless, a special counsel needs to be put in place to investigate the deep state and all that they have done to thwart the Trump presidency and over throw a presidential election.
A question does arise as to why the New York Times would report such a story. I would ask why? Why now? The Times as been a part of the liberal media’s attack on Trump. Why would they report such a story now? Who thinks this is an attempt to rile up Trump so that he fires Rosenstein prior to the 2018 midterms. Isn’t this what was wanted all along? Then the NY Times and the rest of the liberal media gets to cry obstruction of justice. The deep state and the media are very slick and despicable. Do not think they will attempt anything to overthrow this president.
UPDATE I: From the Gateway Pundit, following the New York Times released its report, Andrew McCabe made a statement through his lawyer Michael Bromwich. Interesting, he did not deny The NY Times report.
“Andrew McCabe drafted memos to memorialize significant discussions he had with some high level officials and preserved them so he would have an accurate contemporaneous record of those discussions. When he was interviewed by the Special Counsel more than a year ago, he gave all of his memos — classified and unclassified — to the Special Counsel’s office,” Michael Bromwich said in an email.
UPDATE II: Rosenstein denies the report … The Story Is ‘Inaccurate and Factually Incorrect’.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday denied a New York Times report claiming that he suggested last year that he secretly record Donald Trump in the White House and discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.
“The New York Times‘ story is inaccurate and factually incorrect. I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the [Justice] Department and are advancing their own personal agenda,” Rosenstein said in a statement. “But let me be clear about this: based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
Pelosi Defends Serial Sexual Harasser and Calls Conyers an Icon while ABC News Cokie Roberts Says, “Every Female in the Press Corps Knew” To Avoid Getting in An Elevator With Rep. Conyers (D-MI)
HOW HARVEY WEINSTEINESQUE … THE MSM KNEW THIS DEMOCRAT WAS A SERIAL OFFENDER AND SAID NOTHING …
Even as Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defends the boorish actions of Rep. Conyers (D-MI), ABC’s Cokie Roberts makes a startling admission that “every female in the press corps knew” to avoid being in an elevator with Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). Imagine that. So guess who also knew about Conyes’ inappropriate conduct? That would be Nancy Pelosi. Robert’s stated on ABC ‘This Week,’ “Don’t get in the elevator with him, you know, and the whole every female in the press corps knew that, right, don’t get in elevator with him. Now people are saying it out loud. And I think that does make a difference.”
Everybody knew about his conduct for years and said nothing. The liberal MSM, Democrats, nobody, not even House Republicans. Why is that? is the cesspool in Washington DC any different than Hollywood? And now we have politicians policing their own when they had done nothing for years but look the other way. Its time for these people to be thrown out of office. These are serial offenders and because of their power, they are untouchable. This is just yet another reason for term limits. But instead of throwing Conyers out of office or he doing the right thing by resigning, we have the likes of Pelosi defending him and calling him an icon. And you wonder why this type of behavior was allowed to go on?
Pelosi Defends Conyers … Sounds like he has done a great deal to sexually harass women there Nancy
Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Cokie Roberts made a startling admission: “every female in the press corps knew” to avoid being in an elevator with Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), and has apparently known about this “for years.” Conyers has been accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment and has stepped down from the House Judiciary Committee.
Despite the allegations against him, major players in the Democratic Party have defended Conyers and will not say that he should resign. Pelosi even referred to the embattled congressman as an “icon.”
Roberts was discussing the current culture on Capitol Hill with Martha Raddatz and Anna Palmer. Roberts said that while this has been the status quo for decades, she believes that things could change now that people are coming public with their experiences.
“The fact that people are willing to be public can change things. I mean, we all talked about for years,” said Roberts.
Further, Roberts says that it “does make a difference” now that women are not being shy about this kind of misconduct. Roberts implied that Conyers’ predatory behavior was an open secret among the press corps.
“Don’t get in the elevator with him, you know, and the whole every female in the press corps knew that, right, don’t get in elevator with him,” said Roberts. She continued, “Now people are saying it out loud. And I think that does make a difference.”
This is the party that was defending women, eh?
President Donald Trump Holds “MAGA” Rally in Youngstown, Ohio … They Give Trump a Hero’s Welcome (VIDEO)
THE LEFT DID NOT GET IT IN 2016 AND THEY STILL DON’T … THE RUST BELT AND MIDDLE AMERICA LOVES PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP …
Last night President Donald J. Trump held a “MAGA” rally in Youngstown, Ohio. President Trump went straight to the America people and cut through the fake news. No longer will the likes of CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times, the WAPO and the rest be able to lie to the American people and spew their liberal, hate-Trump agenda. Now words are necessary … Just watch the speech below and you will understand how Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential election and how Trump pierced the Blue wall of the Rustbelt states. The LEFT and MSM just don’t get it and cannot stand that Trump goes over their head and directly to the American People.
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
This town was on fire.
By 1 in the afternoon on Tuesday, every main thoroughfare downtown was filled with happy people heading toward the Covelli Centre. Folks dressed in red, white and blue crisscrossed the main grids as vendors sold “Make America Great Again” ball caps, American flags and bottles of water.
Thousands had filled the gravel parking lot to wait until the doors opened at 4, license plates revealing they had traveled from as far as Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to see the president speak directly to them in this Rust Belt city.
Music played on almost every corner as Donald Skowron, a retired Youngstown police officer, drove his green pickup truck up and down Champion Street — in the back, a 6-by-8-foot homemade wooden Trump-Pence sign straddling the bed of the truck, with two large Trump flags flowing from the top.
Six months after Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, he received a hero’s welcome in this town. The festive scene made a counter-visual to the daily nonstop press reports about investigations into members of his inner circle, Russian interference in last year’s election and the debate over ObamaCare.
Trump’s approval rating, according to Gallup, is 39 percent. Youngstown is the 39 percent.
On Monday, police said the advance ticket request of over 20,000 had exceeded the 6,000-seat capacity of the center, prompting the event coordinators to put a large screen outside the center for the overflow crowd.
Dave Torrance, from Hermitage, Pa., had left early in the morning with three of his friends to see Trump. Torrance, 71, wore a blue ball cap with “American Patriot” embroidered across the top and a navy T-shirt with an American flag across the front.
Sean Hannity 5/9/17 : Kicking FBI Director James Comey to the Curb … Trump’s First Step in Draining the Swamp (VIDEO)
Hannity … FBI director James Comey had to go, he was an embarrassment and created a two tier justice system, one for the Clinton’s and one for the rest of us. Watch the video below to get the truth about the firing of Comey.
TRUMP CALLS OUT CHUCKY SCHUMER …
President Donald Trump mocked New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer for claiming lack of confidence in former FBI director James Comey and then acting upset when Trump fired him.
In a tweet posted late Tuesday evening, Trump referred to Schumer as ‘Cryin’ Chuck Schumer for reversing positions on Comey after Trump fired the FBI director earlier Tuesday. Trump made the decision based on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein. According to the president, the purpose of the firing is to reinvigorate “public trust and confidence.”
