As Cristina Laila reported earlier on Friday —
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year spoke with DOJ and FBI officials about wearing a wire and secretly recording President Trump to be able to build a case that Trump is unfit to hold office.
DAG Rosenstein began plotting Trump’s removal shortly after FBI Director Comey was fired.
James Comey was fired on May 9th, 2017 and DAG Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Trump-Russia collusion a week later.
Rosenstein has been acting as Attorney General since Jeff Sessions recused himself from his duties after he was sworn in.
Rod Rosenstein denied that he proposed to spy on Trump.
Bloomberg Politics reported:
Washington (AP) — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is denying a report in The New York Times that he suggested last year he secretly record President Donald Trump in the White House to expose chaos in the administration.
