(Gateway Pundit) – A new book by James B Stewart claims former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was serious about wearing a wire when he went to the White House to speak with President Donald Trump.
Rosenstein also reportedly believed fired AG Jeff Sessions and John Kelly would support his push to remove President Trump.
FOX News reported:
Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein expected that former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions would back the use of the 25th Amendment against President Trump, but miscalculated and was eventually forced out, a new book claims.
James B. Stewart, the author of “Deep State,” appeared on MSNBC Monday to discuss the revelations, and said Rosenstein was fully serious about wearing a wire to entrap the president. He also felt he could count on cabinet members to forcibly remove Trump if that failed.
“[Rosenstein]… denied saying that he wanted to invoke the 25th Amendment. But there are also witnesses to that conversation, and he even named two cabinet-level people who were going to support that — namely John Kelly, the chief of staff, and [Jeff] Sessions, the attorney general.”
