Confirmed: When Trump Fired Comey, Deep State Began Plotting to Remove Him From Office

Trump had the right to remove Comey -- but Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, etc., did not have the right to remove Trump.

And yet -- the media and Ruling Class are pretending it was illegal to fire Comey and yet legally required of the Deep State to violate its oaths to remove a president they didn't vote for.

McCabe's new book repeats his claim (denied by Rosenstein) that Rosenstein offered to wear a wire in his meetings with Trump. All to gather evidence for a 25th Amendment removal.

Because firing James Comey was apparently proof of mental incompetency.

Meetings were held at the Department of Justice on whether President Donald Trump should be removed from office with the 25th Amendment after the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe writes in a new book.

"There were meetings at the Justice Department at which it was discussed whether the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet could be brought together to remove the president of the United States under the 25th Amendment," CBS News' Scott Pelley said Thursday in a preview of his forthcoming interview with McCabe.

Pelley noted that these meetings were part of an extraordinary 8-day period after Comey's firing in which Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also suggested to senior FBI officials that he should wear a secret recording device in his meetings with Trump.

...

The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of the president of the United States if a majority of his Senate-confirmed cabinet believe he is no longer capable of discharging his duties while in office. Rosenstein reportedly speculated that he could convince at least two cabinet officials to sign on to a plan to oust Trump from office.

These people should be in jailed, if not being stretched at the lower end of a rope.
