Elder Patriot – Here’s the direct quote from the NY Times from the opening paragraph that exposes Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s seditious plan to remove President Trump less than two months into his administration.:
WASHINGTON — 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.
The shit has officially hit the fan in Washington as the Deputy Attorney General, who is already neck-deep in obstructing the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence by defying multiple requests for document production from them, now faces charges of outright sedition.
The HPSCI is charged with oversight over the Justice Department.
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.
According to the Times, Rosenstein told anti-Trump co-conspirator Andrew McCabe that
“he might be able to persuade Attorney General Jeff Sessions and John F. Kelly, then the secretary of homeland security and now the White House chief of staff, to mount an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
Rosenstein’s actions portray an out-of-control, ego driven, maniacal attempt to stage a coup d’etat against a duly elected president. As time has passed, his reasons appear to have become increasingly obvious.
Rosenstein was intent on defending the corrupt construct of the Obama administration and on protecting the many associations he had that led to fraudulent deals like Uranium One and the Iran nuclear deal that enriched his employers at the expense of America’s national security interests.
… according to the others who described his comments, Mr. Rosenstein not only confirmed that he was serious about the idea but also followed up by suggesting that other F.B.I. officials who were interviewing to be the bureau’s director could also secretly record Mr. Trump.
This revelation didn’t come out of thin air. It raises the specter that someone has flipped, likely in an effort to save themselves as much jail time as possible.
There is also the potential, though unlikely, that the Times story has been fabricated in an effort to entice Trump into firing Rosenstein in order to revive special counsel Robert Mueller’s obstruction investigation that has already been unofficially dismissed.
Keep in mind the concerted effort between the anti-Trump propaganda news media and the Democratic Party that is desperately working in unison to flip the midterms in the Democrats’ favor.
Think the sham construct surrounding “salacious and unverified” charges against Judge Kavanaugh. The only difference between the Kavanaugh charges and the unverified Steele dossier, that was the underlying predicate for deceiving the FISA court, is in the case of Kavanaugh the lying Dem-Media complex latched onto a complaint that is not only “unverified” but “unverifiable.”
Rosenstein should’ve recused himself once he decided a special counsel should be appointed. At that moment he became both a witness and the judge over the special counsel’s office.
Remember,Rosenstein wrote the letter recommending firing FBI Director James Comey that President Trump cited as the proximate reason he relieved him of his command.
This new revelation, if true, compounds things, exponentially.
President Trump would be within his rights to ask Rosenstein to step aside, or to remove him if he won’t.
President Trump who, despite the two-year onslaught against him has emerged as the level-headed adult through all of this, has demanded the release, without redactions, of various documents and communications surrounding the ill-gotten FISA applications that led to the illegal surveillance on him.
He may use this as the predicate for Rosenstein’s removal. If Rosenstein doesn’t release them in a timely manner he might be removed for defying a direct order. If he does release the documents, it’s an virtual certainty that the Deputy Attorney General will be exposed as an authorizing participant in a fraud against the secret court.
Either way, it is likely we are about to see the last of this black hat as an in official in this, or any future, administration.
If the Times story is legitimate then this is likely just the tip of the iceberg. When rats turn on each other there is usually a feeding frenzy that almost becomes hard to watch.
Except in this case it won’t be.
