US Deputy attorney general plotted to oust Trump: NYT

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has suggested removing President Donald Trump from office by invoking the 25th Amendment to the Constitution reports NYT .

The New York Times reported in its Friday online edition that Rosenstein made the suggestion to other Justice Department and FBI officials in the spring of 2017. The paper cited sources close to the matter.

The 25th Amendment stipulates that if the vice president and a majority of cabinet officials declared to Congress that the president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” the vice president assumes those powers and duties as acting president.

The newspaper reports that Rosenstein also suggested secretly recording Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration.

The suggestions came at a time when Trump fired James Comey as FBI director over probes into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Rosenstein was reportedly critical of the dismissal.

Rosenstein issued a statement to deny the allegations reported by the Times.

Trump told a campaign rally in Missouri on Friday that the Justice Department has “great people” but also “some real bad ones.” He added, “There’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that.”
