FBI Officials Rat on Rosenstein, Believe He Was 'Serious' About Secretly Recording Trump

Share

The phrase “there is no honor among thieves” comes to mind when thinking about the latest story of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the FBI rats who are all now seemingly trying to stay out of hot water as the Trump administration moves closer to uncovering bits and pieces of what seems to be an elaborate scheme to take down this president.

By now most people have heard that Rosenstein has made comments suggesting in May 2017 he would be willing to secretly record conversations with President Donald Trump, and then use those recordings to invoke the 25th Amendment to have him removed from office.

The funny thing is, Rosenstein doesn’t deny saying such outlandish and unethical things – he just denies that he was serious when he said them, as NBC and others have reported. Because of course a man with a lengthy career in government as an attorney, with a high position in the Justice Department, wouldn’t be foolish enough to be serious when he made comments that end his career — or even be construed as treasonous — would he?

That’s been the speculation for weeks since The New York Times story first broke, as everyone looks on to see just what drama coming from inside the swamp will play itself out next.

However, as time passes, squirming occurs within the swamp, and now two senior FBI officials have come forward to say that Rosenstein was as serious as a heart attack when he made those comments.

Fox News reported Tuesday: “Former FBI General Counsel James A. Baker told congressional investigators during a closed-door deposition last week that then-FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe and FBI lawyer Lisa Page came to Baker ‘contemporaneously’ after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. Baker said Page and McCabe relayed details of the meeting where Rosenstein made the comments.”

While he wasn’t present at the meeting where Rosenstein spoke, Baker told congressional investigators he believed McCabe and Page and took their account of the incident “seriously,” according to Fox.

Additionally, Fox stated Baker suspected Rosenstein was working with two other administration insiders to “invoke the 25th Amendment.”

While Rosenstein has denied speaking seriously regarding secretly recording the president, Baker, McCabe and Page are standing by their own assessments of the situation.

Do you think Rosenstein just kidding when he said he would secretly record the president?

And according to the Washington Examiner columnist Byron York, the three weren’t so quick to dismiss Rosenstein’s comments as flip.

York quoted a sources close to the investigation: “The thing that struck me the most was the serious look on Baker’s face when he was describing it. He was conveying that they (McCabe and Page) took it seriously, and because they took it seriously, he took it seriously.”

Another source agreed, York reported.

“McCabe, Page, and Baker were talking about (secretly recording the president) as a real thing, and discussing it as a serious issue,” that source said, according to York.

On Monday, Trump said he had no intention  had no intention of firing Rosenstein, even as speculation revolves around his previous statements.

At least for now, Rosenstein has dodged a bullet.

However, as time goes by, who knows which rats will get squirmy inside the swamp? McCabe, Page and Baker are all part of the cast of characters who make up the deep state swamp creatures.

Baker is the former top lawyer at the FBI who helped secure surveillance warrants on candidate Donald Trump’s campaign aide Carter Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

McCabe is the former FBI deputy director who oversaw the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server and the investigation into suspected ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. He was fired for a lack of candor on multiple occasions while under oath and leaking to the news media.

Lisa Page is a former attorney for the FBI who exchanged text messages with former FBI Agent Peter Strzok, painting Trump in an unfavorable light. The married Page was having an affair with the married Strzok at the time.

Clearly none of these folks are people in whom you would want to place a lot of faith.

But if we can wait it out, they may just hang each other out to dry as the deep state ship sinks.

There’s no honor among thieves.
