But it’s not only that, for apparently Rosenstein even brought up the idea of getting members of the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to get Trump out of office:
Rosenstein provided a statement to the New York Times adamantly denying these claim by the paper. He stated that this story is false and is only based on false claims by anonymous witnesses.
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.
