In his new book, "Deep State", author James B. Stewart let us in on some detailed information including something that we've all already been aware of but may not have been 100% positive of.
Stewart writes that Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire to spy on President Trump and he even considered the idea invoking the 25th Amendment in an attempt to remove President Trump from office.
So obviously there was talk about it in the White House, but we had no idea who may have supported the invocation of the 25th Amendment. Stewart in the book, however, does let us in on two people who Rosenstein believed would take his side in the coup. Those men are John Kelly and Jeff Sessions.
According to The 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.”
