Rosenstein Leaving DOJ — Allegedly Offered To Wear Wire Near Trump

H/T Flag And Cross.

I personally will be glad to see this weasel-faced rat bastard go.

I will only believe he is gone when someone besides Fake News CNN says he is gone.

He gone!

It was a long time coming, but it finally happened.

Not long after Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein has decided to leave, too.

This news broke late Monday night on the heels of Rosenstein allegedly admitting that he’d wear a wire when he was around POTUS

From CNN:

The No. 2 official at the department has become one of the highest profile figures in the Trump administration given his oversight of the Russia investigation and the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in 2017.

CNN had previously reported that Rosenstein was planning to step down after Bill Barr was confirmed as attorney general, but the precise timing was fluid. A departure next month could potentially serve as another signal that Mueller’s work is coming to a close.

The Justice official who confirmed Rosenstein’s current thinking disputed the idea that the timing of his departure has anything to do with the latest revelations from former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, emphasizing that the plan was always to have Rosenstein help with the transition for his successor and then leave, as Barr previewed during his Senate confirmation hearing.

The day before this news came out, Trump noted:

Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught…..

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that Rosenstein and McCabe would be investigated over a “bureaucratic coup” against Trump.

From Daily Caller:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham pledged Sunday to hold a hearing to determine whether top Justice Department and FBI official discussed a “bureaucratic coup” to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Graham said in an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he is willing to subpoena Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to answer questions about an alleged discussion to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

McCabe claims that Rosenstein brought up the idea of using the Constitution to remove Trump during a meeting of FBI and Justice Department officials on May 16, 2017, around a week after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director.
