James B Stewart has written a new book titled “Deep State”.
In the book he revealed something that we already knew to be true. Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire to spy on President Trump and he even floated the idea of instituting the 25th Amendment to drive President Trump from office.
But, we had no idea who the cabinet officials were that he believed would vote for the 25th Amendment. Stewart, in his book has named two people that Rosenstein thought would help in his coup against the president. They are Jeff Sessions and John Kelly.
Neither one surprises me and both were people I advocated for Trump to fire because I did not believe that either one of them was on his side.
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.”
