(National Sentinel) Discovery: House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said Tuesday he wants Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to testify before Congress under oath regarding details contained in a New York Times report last week.
The Times report claims that 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 FBI officials,” who of course gave the paper their details anonymously.
During meetings in July 2017, Rosenstein allegedly made the explosive suggestion to other Justice Department and FBI officials that someone secretly record POTUS. The scheme never materialized, but according to the Times Rosenstein told then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe he thought it would be possible to flip Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then-Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, now chief of staff, to invoke the 25th Amendment.
Now Meadows, R-N.C., wants Rosenstein to appear before a congressional committee to answer questions about the allegations.
“You can’t have the number two official at the Department of Justice making comments about wiring the President and not address it,” he tweeted. “Rod Rosenstein must come before Congress this week, under oath, and tell the truth about his alleged statements.”

Multiple reports on Monday claimed that Rosenstein has privately offered Chief of Staff John Kelly his resignation. Also, reports noted that Rosenstein is to meet with POTUS Trump at the White House on Thursday.
Following reports that Rosenstein is scheduled to meet with POTUS, fired Deep State liar and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared to hit the panic button.
And why? Over the bogus probe regarding special counsel Robert Mueller.
In a statement, McCabe — who was fired earlier this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for lying on multiple occasions to investigators — expressed concern that Mueller’s probe could go away (as it should) if caretaker Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, is sacked or resigns.
“There is nothing more important to the integrity of law enforcement and the rule of law than protecting the investigation of Special Counsel Mueller. If the rumors of Deputy AG’s Rosenstein’s departure are true, I am deeply concerned it puts that investigation at risk,” he said.
Shine enough light and the roaches will scurry for cover.
