Rosenstein: ‘Incorrect’ NYT Story on Wiretaps, 25th Amendment Came from Sources Biased Against DOJ

WASHINGTON — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein denied a new report in the New York Times that alleges he wanted to surreptitiously record President Trump and discussed rallying cabinet members to invoke the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office.

The report claims Rosenstein made the suggestions in spring 2017 after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and the president met privately in the Oval Office with then-Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
