SEPTEMBER 23, 2018
Schmer is a big mouth idiot. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday the bombshell report of Rod Rosenstein suggesting wearing a wiretap to record President Trump shouldnt be used to fire the deputy attorney general. This New York Times report must not be used as a pretext for the corrupt purpose of firing Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein in order to install an official who will allow the president to interfere with the Special Counsels investigation, Schumer wrote in a tweet. He added that other Trump administration officials have reportedly said negative things about the president, yet they werent fired.
Generals Kelly, Mattis and numerous other White House and cabinet officials have been reported to say critical things of the president without being fired, the top Senate Demcorat added in a tweet. Schumers comments came amid a New York Times report that claimed Rosenstein suggested secretly recording Trumps conversations with Justice Department and FBI officials. The discussion of such measures, though it remains unclear how serious they were, came in the wake of the presidents decision to fire then-FBI Director James Comey. The explosive report also noted that Rosenstein discussed using the 25th Amendment with Cabinet members to remove Trump on the basis of being unfit for duty.
Rosenstein denied the accuracy of the report,
calling it inaccurate and factually incorrect and went on to slam the
sources of the Times story that, in his view, are biased against his department.
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, he said in a statement to Fox News. But let me clear about this:
Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to
invoke the 25th Amendment.
