More Secret Recordings, the 25th Amendment, Rod Rosenstein
Apparently, the spooky deep state that now includes Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, also wanted to secretly record President Trump and invoke the 25th Amendment.
I do have another theory other than the QAnon-Deep State conspiracies: maybe Rosenstein is another member of the Trump Administration that is concerned for our country and thinks the President is not only incompetent, but loco.
Based on reporting by the New York Times, it seem Rosenstein believed he could convince others in Trump’s White House such as John Kelly and Jeff Sessions to play along.
Even Omarosa Manigault says her and colleagues used to text #tfa, “the twenty-fifth amendment” to each other.
Rosenstein denied the story in a statement.
“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” Rosenstein said in a statement. “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. But let me be clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
Of course, when President Trump denies a story, it’s gospel. If it’s a rumor by anyone else, then it’s true and part of the deep state that is being uncovered. For that reason, many now want Rosenstein’s head on the chopping block.
What is the 25th Amendment
The 25th Amendment allows for the President to be replaced if need be. For example, if the President dies like John F. Kennedy or resigns like Richard Nixon, the 25th Amendment allows for the Vice President to step in and resume the duties of the President. Sometimes it can even be temporary. For example, what if the President is going through a surgical procedure and is under anesthesia.
In President Trump’s case, the 25th Amendment refers to his mental ability. The funny thing, while the right loves Steve Bannon, he did say from the beginning to forget impeachment and focus on the possibility of the 25th Amendment.
No doubt that Jim Jordan, who filed impeachment proceedings against Rosenstein earlier this year and nothing came of it, will start up with the rhetoric again.
Then again, maybe Rosenstein never mentioned the 25th Amendment and that story was planted as an excuse to fire Rosenstein who is overseeing the Robert Mueller investigation. Get rid of Rosenstein, replace him with a flunky as a way to fire Mueller.

Today Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein went for a ride on Air Force One, reminiscent of Fredo going for a boat ride in the Godfather 2.
