    Two sources told The Daily Beast that FBI lawyer Lisa Page was present for Rod Rosenstein's comments on secret recordings and did not believe he was joking or being sarcastic. A debate with major implications has broken out over whether Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was being sarcastic when, in the spring of 2017, he reportedly talked about covertly recording President Donald Trump. A former career Justice Department official who was in the room when the topic arose told The Daily Beast he believes the deputy attorney general was being sarcastic. But another person in the room at the time...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup -- a plot to overthrow the president. As the Times reveals, Rosenstein was furious that Democrats blamed him for the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Rosenstein, who had volunteered to write the firing memorandum, was “regretful and emotional.” His behavior was described as “erratic.” He blamed Trump. So, in an apparent act of vengeance, he proposed secretly recording the president to try to gain damaging information about him. He solicited others to wear wires, including Andrew McCabe, who...

    Clean House: If there was ever any need for further proof that President Donald Trump should clean out all senior members of the Justice Department, this should do it. That is, if it’s true. A bombshell report in The New York Times claims that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein once offered to secretly record POTUS Trump inside the Oval Office while wanting to “recruit” top Trump administration officials to get rid of the president via the 25th Amendment — a majority of Cabinet members voting for removal. The Times says that Rosenstein shared those plans with “other Justice Department and...
  • Rosenstein Suggested He Secretly Record Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment

    The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit. Mr. Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017 when Mr. Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director plunged the White House into turmoil. Over the ensuing days, the president divulged classified intelligence to Russians in the Oval Office, and revelations emerged that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Comey to...

    A bombshell newspaper essay which detailed efforts to sideline Donald Trump from government was “just an obvious attempt to distract attention from this booming economy and [the president’s] record of success”, Vice-President Mike Pence has said. Speaking to CBS’s Face the Nation in an interview for broadcast on Sunday, Pence also denied that White House officials discussed invoking the 25th amendment and removing Trump from power. The comment piece was published by the New York Times on Wednesday, under the title I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration and attributed to a mystery “senior official”. It came...

    Lifehacker ^ | Saturday, September 8, 2018 | Beth Skwarecki
    The US Constitution provides instructions for how to remove a president from office if they are unfit to do their job—gravely wounded, for example, or mentally unstable. The instructions were ratified as an amendment in 1967, after John F. Kennedy's assassination. Until that point, the Constitution just vaguely referred to the fact that a president could be removed for "Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of said Office." When can the 25th amendment be invoked for an unfit president? Whenever the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet are ready to do so. One anonymous "senior official" wrote...

    WASHINGTON – A storm is gathering. The voices raising alarms about President Donald Trump’s temperament, steadiness and attitude toward the competing power centers of a democracy aren’t new; they date to his days as Candidate Trump. But the new authors of those arguments are making those concerns louder and more credible. The consequences ahead – the speed and direction of the storm – aren’t set, at least not yet. But the stakes are already pretty clear, and they could include Trump’s presidency. Consider just the past week. Last Saturday, two former presidents, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush,...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, seizing on an explosive op-ed from an anonymous administration official, said Thursday that it's time to use constitutional powers to remove President Donald Trump office if top officials don't think he can do the job. "If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment," Warren told CNN. "The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the Vice President and senior officials think the President can't do his job. It does not provide that senior officials go around the President -- take...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren called on White House officials Thursday to remove President Trump from office as unfit to handle the job. The Massachusetts Democrat and progressive hero, often touted as a 2020 presidential hopeful, said Wednesday’s op-ed in the New York Times by an anonymous White House official justifies forcing out Mr. Trump under the constitutional provisions for an incapacitated president. “If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment,” she told CNN in an interview. Shortly after the CNN interview, Ms. Warren sent...

  • ‘Gutless punk’: Dan Bongino unloads on anonymous Resistance official in Trump admin

    Wednesday on the radio, Dan Bongino subbed for LevinTV host Mark Levin and discussed a New York Times op-ed by an anonymous author. The article is purportedly by a “senior official” in the Trump administration who has “vowed to thwart” parts of Trump’s agenda. Bongino called out the unnamed author as a “coward” and a “chump” for resisting Trump, which really means resisting the American voters who put Trump in office. “When you object to the peaceful transition of power, the republic is finished,” Bongino said. “What else is left? Bongino said that the author has a duty to resign...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson started his show Wednesday night claiming he had a “pretty good idea who wrote” the controversial anonymous New York Times op-ed and added that representatives from his show had called the White House for comment. Earlier in the day, The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed that was allegedly written by a “senior official in the Trump administration.” “We think we’ve got a pretty good idea who wrote this piece. We’ve called the White House for comment on it tonight. But until we confirm the identity, of course, we’re not going to accuse anybody...

    The New York Times’ scathing anti-Donald Trump op-ed, which the paper attributed to “a senior official in the Trump administration,” has inspired a parlor game among people trying to figure out the author’s name. Some online commentators are leaning toward Vice President Mike Pence based on just one word in the piece. The unidentified author singles out the late Arizona Sen. John McCain as “a lodestar for restoring honor to public life and our national dialogue.” The word ― which Merriam-Webster defines as either “a star that leads or guides” or a person who “serves as an inspiration, model, or...

    The New York Times op-ed page editor Jim Dao on Wednesday described the process behind publishing a bombshell op-ed from an anonymous senior administration official, telling CNN that the official contacted him “through an intermediary.” Dao said the Times also spoke directly with the individual but there are only a "very small number of people within the Times who know this person's identity.” The op-ed, published Wednesday afternoon, described coordinated efforts among Trump administration staff to counter President Trump. The Times described the anonymous author in a note as "a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known...

    If the “senior official” who published an anonymous op-ed bashing President Donald Trump in the New York Times on Wednesday was hoping for accolades from the opposition, he or she must have been sorely disappointed, as the media’s leftists and Never Trumpers accused the author of cowardice for failing to take the extra step of removing Trump altogether. The author claimed to be part of the “resistance” inside the White House. But the real “resistance” wasn’t having it. Jessica Roy, an anti-Trump writer at the Los Angeles Times, attacked the author in an op-ed titled, “No, anonymous Trump official, you’re...

    Acts of sabotage against the president are perilous to the American system of government. They're also self-serving. The title of Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear, contains a multitude of meanings. For one thing, it describes the attitude of many of President Trump’s own aides toward his judgment. It’s not just that many sources were willing to tell Woodward damaging stories about Trump: The most stunning examples are those where top aides reportedly thwarted his will. Even more stunning is an anonymous op-ed published in The New York Times Wednesday afternoon written by a purported “senior official in the Trump administration.”...

    GORDON HUMPHREY: The nation needs to be rid of this vile president. His vileness is so great as to personify evil. We need to be rid of this man, and Congress has the power to do this under the Constitution... by invoking the 25th Amendment... Which would transfer his powers to the vice president. There isn't a moment to lose. Members of Congress need to stand up, and show some courage and some principle, and put the country, and its future, and our hopes, in front of their selfish personal political ambitions.

Last year, he introduced legislation called the "No TRUMP Act" after reports that federal officials spent taxpayer dollars at Trump-owned properties. Additionally, he introduced a bill that would make it easier to remove the president via the 25th...

The presidential physical exams do not normally include mental health evaluations, and this one didn’t, either. …

She is the shrink who's made appearances since the inauguration of President Trump to accuse him of being crazy. She is the tip of the "25th Amendment" spear that is currently being thrust at him. Typical of recent articles appearing in the media recently is this one from MSN: A Yale University psychiatry professor told US lawmakers that she believes Donald Trump'smental health is "unravelling" in a presentation...
