Trump accuses the “number two” of Justice of planning an “illegal” act against him

US President Donald Trump accused the “number two” of the Department of Justice, Rod Rosenstein, of planning a “very illegal act” against him, after the former interim director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe. , will assure that in 2017 there were supposed projects to remove the president from power.

Trump reacted in a series of tweets to an interview with McCabe on Sunday by CBS News, in which the former official said that in the Justice Department there were talks about the possibility of secretly recording the US president or starting a process to dismiss him.

“Wow, how many lies of the former interim FBI director, now disgraced, Andrew McCabe,” Trump wrote on his Twitter account.
“He was fired for lying, and now his story becomes even more demented, it seems that he and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another marvel of man), were planning a very illegal act, and they got caught,” he added.

Trump fired last year to Sessions, until then US attorney general, and the Justice Department expelled McCabe in March 2018, but Rosenstein remains in office.

Trump’s tweet is a new attack on the “number two” of the Department of Justice, at a time of growing rumors about the possibility that he resign or be replaced soon by another official, after the confirmation last week of the new attorney general of EE .U., William Barr.

Rosenstein was in charge of overseeing the independent investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections since the dismissal in May 2017 of FBI director James Comey and until that of Sessions last November.

The president also said that McCabe and Rosenstein “have a lot to explain to the millions of people who had just elected a president they really like,” and hinted that they tried to favor the Democratic opposition with their “traitorous” actions.

In his interview, McCabe confirmed that Rosenstein offered to take a hidden tape recorder to his meetings with Trump shortly after the president fired Comey, in order to “collect evidence” on the reason for the expulsion of the FBI director.

In addition, according to McCabe, Rosenstein also proposed reuniting a cabinet majority to activate the twenty-fifth amendment of the US Constitution and remove Trump from power for “incapacity,” but neither of those ideas came to be implemented.

The Justice Department said in a statement last week that Rosenstein “never authorized any recording” or believes there is “any basis for invoking the twenty-ninth amendment.” (EFEUSA) .-
