Lindsey Graham on Rosenstein Story: ‘There’s a Bureaucratic Coup’ Against Trump

23 Septembre, 2018, 22:26 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Trump's Republican ally Mike Huckabee meanwhile urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Rosenstein - or for Trump to fire them both if he refuses.

Purdy wrote, "just because you don't like the facts, don't comfort yourself by dismissing the story as fake reporting".

He added it's the responsibility of the media to report the facts, however comforting or discomforting they may be.

In the immediate hours after The New York Times reported Friday on Rosenstein's supposedly sarcastic musings about wearing a wire to document chaos in the administration, Trump questioned whether to fire him immediately, people familiar with the conversations said.

"We believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic", the writer said.

Rosenstein is under an intense spotlight - and fire from Trump - as he oversees the probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether the real estate mogul's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.

"You have some real bad ones".

"If you're not, you should take this time to do something more productive", he said. "If Rosenstein's involved, he should be fired, if he's not involved then leave him alone". For now, Trump appears to have listened, though he has made clear his desire to rid the agency of officials he has deemed disloyal and corrupt.

Rosenstein's alleged allusion to the 25th amendment of the US Constitution, which provides for removing a president if they are judged unfit for office, came just after Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey - invoking a memo written by Rosenstein.

"We committed to moving forward with an open hearing on Thursday September 27 at 10am", Dr Ford's attorneys said in a statement.

According to the Times, Rosenstein was unhappy about being "used" by Trump in the firing of Comey, as well as concerned about other turmoil in the White House under the new president.
