Rosenstein discussed recording Trump, invoking 25th Amendment

NYT: Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Taping Trump, Using the 25th Amendment to Oust Him - Hit & Run : Reason.com

The New York Times recently released an article, 'Rod Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment.'

It is noted that Rosenstein voiced the proposal in the spring of 2017 during a meeting with employees of the Ministry of justice after trump fired the FBI Director James Komi.

The White House did not immediately react to the reports, and Trump did not respond to shouted questions from reporters about whether he would fire Rosenstein as he arrived in Springfield, Missouri, for a rally.

The 25th Amendment allows for a sitting president to be removed from office if the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet decides he is unable to discharge his duties.

In response to the story, McCabe's attorney's issued the following statement to ABC News: "Andrew McCabe drafted memos to memorialize significant discussions he had with high-level officials and preserved them so he would have an accurate, contemporaneous record of those discussions".

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) warned President Donald Trump against an obvious possible obstruction of justice as Trump hinted at firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a rally late Friday.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement: "This story must not be used as a pretext for the corrupt objective of firing Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein in order to install an official who will allow the president to interfere with the Special Counsel's investigation".

"I believe much of the criticism will fall by the wayside when people reflect on this era and the Department of Justice", said Rosenstein, who did not refer to Trump directly.

Some analysts had suggested the Times story might have been planted by Trump allies seeking to justify a move against Rosenstein. But let me be clear about this: "Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment", he said.

Donald Trump has spent a lot of time disparaging "fake news" reports from the "failing" New York Times largely based on anonymous sources.

"Tomorrow I have to change four, five players, but it's impossible in this moment of a season to change 11 players for a match". Hazard's third came from the spot in the 80th after a penalty was won by Willian, who curled in the fourth three minutes later.

"Rod Rosenstein shld have been fired long ago for being part of the "resistance" and not providing documents to congress in order to save his corrupt pals", she wrote.

A justice department press officer told the BBC that Mr Rosenstein's comment about secretly recording the president was a joke.

The president, who regularly characterizes the probe as a "witch hunt", has denied any collusion with Moscow, while Russian Federation has denied interfering in the election. Comey had just been fired, and his deputy, McCabe, like many in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was deeply upset about that action by Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.

The White House initially held up that memo as justification for Mr Comey's firing, though Mr Trump has said he was thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" when he made the move.

What might happen to any move to impeach Rosenstein in the wake of the Times report is unknown. The New York Times story could be the ominous crack that presages a plunge into the cold abyss. Rosenstein had written a memo criticizing Comey's handling of the earlier FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server for government business.

'I had no idea it was a shark attack'
Meanwhile, a Tasmanian tourist remains in a critical condition in hospital following yesterday's attack. Her blood pressure was so low I couldn't even feel her pulse, but she was able to say a few words.

Rosenstein initiated discussions about the U.S. Constitution's 25th Amendment, the Times and Post reported. Sessions recused himself from that issue soon after he took office, to Trump's dismay, and Rosenstein then appointed Mueller. But he has been in a running war with the Justice Department, starting with Jeff Sessions, his hand-picked attorney general.
