“In the days after FBI Director James Comey’s May 2017 firing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed wearing a ‘wire’ to record conversations with President Donald Trump and recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, according to sources familiar with memos authored by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe documenting the discussions.
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.
The story was first reported by The New York Times.
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 McCabe’s recollection of his interactions with Rosenstein.”
