Andrew McCabe disclosed Trump’s removal was discussed Rod Rosenstein , in 2017 - TNBC USA

The former acting director of Federal Bureau of Investigation on Sunday, in an interview, revealed that in 2017, the US deputy attorney general discussed how many cabinet members would support removing US President Donald Trump from office.
Andrew McCabe said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein raised the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution after Trump dismissed FBI director James Comey on May 9, 2017.
“Rod raised the issue and discussed it with me in the context of thinking about how many other cabinet officials might support such an effort,” said McCabe in CBS’s “60 Minutes” news show.
Early morning on Sunday, the CBS’s “Face the Nation” show played a clip particularly that part of the interview. It was for the first time that McCabe’s actual comments on the explosive subject have been broadcasted.
Rosenstein has denied the reports that he has discussed removing Trump from the office. He even considered wearing a wire to secretly record his conversations with the president — as a “joke,” if indeed he made the comments.
In the interview, McCabe was questioned whether Rosenstein had an intention of “getting rid of the president of the United States one way or another.”
“I can’t confirm that,” he said. “But what I can say is the deputy attorney general was definitely very concerned about the president, about his capacity and about his intent at that point in time,” McCabe replied.
FBI was investigating if there was any kind of possibility of Trump’s 2016 campaign a secret Russian effort to shake the US election in his favor when Trump abruptly fired Comey amid tensions over the FBI’s investigation.
Eventually, Comey revealed that he was being pressurized by the President to publicly declare that he was not a subject of the investigation. “It was just another kind of topic that he jumped to in the midst of a wide-ranging conversation,” he added.
