Rosenstein & the 25th Amendment

“Rod Rosenstein is a very smart guy, he’s an accomplished guy, he’s been around a while. The 25th Amendment is such a huge hurdle in terms of proof (and) evidentiary material—even if he tapes the President of the United States in the Oval Office. It had to occur to him that this was nearly an impossible feat,” says Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle during a conversation with New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt about his reporting that indicates that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly recorded President Donald Trump in the White House to expose the chaos overwhelming the Administration and posed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office for being unfit.
