Graham Isn’t Playing Around, Vows Rosenstein Investigation Over ‘Coup’ to Oust Trump

If Rod Rosenstein was having a good day, Lindsey Graham just ruined it.

During an appearance Sunday morning on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” the South Carolina Senator said he’s going after Rod over a “bureaucratic coup” to oust President Trump.

From Daily Caller:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham pledged Sunday to hold a hearing to determine whether top Justice Department and FBI official discussed a “bureaucratic coup” to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Graham said in an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he is willing to subpoena Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to answer questions about an alleged discussion to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

McCabe claims that Rosenstein brought up the idea of using the Constitution to remove Trump during a meeting of FBI and Justice Department officials on May 16, 2017, around a week after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director.

Graham is demanding answers from the FBI after Roger Stone’s arrest.

Like the rest of the nation, Graham wants to know what’s up.

He sent a sharp letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding answers.

More from Graham:

His letter:

Former FBI lawyer James Baker said two Trump cabinet members support invoking the 25th Amendment to remove POTUS from office.

From Fox News:

Former top FBI lawyer James Baker, in closed-door testimony to Congress, detailed alleged discussions among senior officials at the Justice Department about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office, claiming he was told Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said two Trump Cabinet officials were “ready to support” such an effort.

The testimony was delivered last fall to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. Fox News has confirmed portions of the transcript. It provides additional insight into discussions that have returned to the spotlight in Washington as fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe revisits the matter during interviews promoting his forthcoming book.

Baker did not identify the two Cabinet officials. But in his testimony, the lawyer said McCabe and FBI lawyer Lisa Page came to him to relay their conversations with Rosenstein, including discussions of the 25th Amendment.

In short, don’t mess with Lindsey Graham. You’re not going to win.
