Trump Comes Out Swinging Against Rosenstein And McCabe. Here’s What He Had To Say.

President Trump came out swinging for the fences on Monday, accusing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe of pursuing an “illegal and treasonous” plot against him.

This comes in light of revelations from McCabe himself who recently spoke about privately held DOJ talks about secretly recording the president and ousting him from office.

The alleged discussions have been a subject of fierce debate – and conflicting accounts – for months. But McCabe revived the issue during promotional interviews for his forthcoming book, telling CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that Rosenstein was “absolutely serious” when he suggested recording Trump in the tumultuous days following James Comey’s firing as FBI director.

Trump seethed on Twitter over the comments, calling McCabe a liar before lashing out at top DOJ and FBI officials, including ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions, for what he described as a “deranged” plan.

“He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught … There is a lot of explaining to do to the millions of people who had just elected a president who they really like and who has done a great job for them with the Military, Vets, Economy and so much more. This was the illegal and treasonous ‘insurance policy’ in full action!” he tweeted.

While Trump fumed at McCabe, the former FBI deputy director claimed he “never actually considered taking [Rosenstein] up on the offer.” He said he did discuss the matter with the FBI’s then-general counsel, James A. Baker. Last fall, as reported by Fox News, Baker told lawmakers during a closed-door deposition that McCabe and Page came to Baker “contemporaneously” and told him details of the meeting where Rosenstein made the comments. Baker told congressional investigators he took the word of McCabe and Page “seriously.”

To even suggest such a course of action without some sort of real justification is absolutely ludicrous. The folks responsible for these talks, along with those who participated, need some sort of accountability for their actions.

If there is no hard evidence that our president has committed a crime, why is the left so desperate to boot him? Are they really concerned about Trump’s policies, or are they just sore they lost in 2016?

Regardless of reasoning, this is flat out wrong. Let’s hope somebody pays the piper for this nefarious plot.
