During Trump’s presidency, whenever he or anyone else discussed the Deep State, Democrats and the media would dismiss it as the stuff of conspiracy theories.
When Trump suggested that the Obama team spied on his campaign, Democrats and the media lost their minds.
Now former Justice Department official Rod Rosenstein is openly admitting that he and the FBI’s Andrew McCabe discussed recording conversations with Trump.
Is this still a conspiracy theory?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Recording Trump was discussed, Rod Rosenstein concedes
In his first TV interview since leaving the Trump administration in May 2019, Rosenstein told FOX 5 that there was talk of recording the 45th president for the inquiry but denied that he ever intended to wear a “wire” during the turbulent days that followed Trump firing FBI Director James Comey in 2017 before the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel.
“I had a conversation with Andrew McCabe about an investigation that he was conducting involving the president. And there was a discussion about whether or not the president would be recorded in the course of that investigation. I never intended to wear a wire, and I think that if Mr. McCabe asked me to wear a wire, we would’ve had to reconsider the whole thing. Because you can’t run an investigation and serve as a witness,” Rosenstein said in an episode of the Siege on Democracy podcast published last month.
McCabe, Comey’s deputy who became acting FBI director for a couple months after the firing, made headlines in February 2019, when he corroborated reporting that claimed Rosenstein offered to wear a recording device while talking to other officials to tape Trump secretly.
Rosenstein is admitting this now because he thinks it’s safe to say it now.
We always learn the truth years too late in DC. Well after anyone can be punished or the public cares, anymore.
