The Deep State is real.
And they are out to get Donald Trump.
But one Deep State agent realized it was all over when this smoking gun leaked.
The Deep State Strikes Back
The New York Times published a bombshell story.
They claimed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wanted to wear a wire to record Donald Trump.
The paper also reported he talked about using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
The New York Times exclusively reports:
Mr. Rosenstein made the remarks about secretly recording Mr. Trump and about the 25th Amendment in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and F.B.I. officials. Several people described the episodes, insisting on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The people were briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by F.B.I. officials, including Andrew G. McCabe, then the acting bureau director, that documented Mr. Rosenstein’s actions and comments.
None of Mr. Rosenstein’s proposals apparently came to fruition. It is not clear how determined he was about seeing them through, though he did tell Mr. McCabe that he might be able to persuade Attorney General Jeff Sessions and John F. Kelly, then the secretary of homeland security and now the White House chief of staff, to mount an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment.
Trump supporters said this story proved the President was right.
The Deep State exists.
And rogue agents within the government are working to destroy the President.
The Times also claimed Rosenstein wanted to appoint former Obama Justice Department official James Cole as special counsel.
This story smells like Rosenstein was plotting a coup.
But was it true?
Rosenstein Denies The Story
Rosenstein denied the story.
He released a statement to Fox News, but it failed to convince anyone.
Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace called the denial “weak.”
Therefore, Rosenstein put out a second denial.
This one was stronger.
“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” he said.
“I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda. But let me be clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
Who leaked to the Times?
Trump supporters believe Deep State agent Andrew McCabe leaked this story.
The Times based the report on his memos.
In addition, Lisa Page was identified as attending the meetings where Rosenstein made these remarks.
Some Trump supporters believe McCabe leaked the story to get revenge.
He is currently facing criminal charges for lying to investigators about leaking to the press.
Critics believe McCabe leaked the story to trick Trump into firing Rosenstein.
McCabe thinks Trump firing Rosenstein will hand the Democrats a weapon in the midterm elections.
