Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wanted to wear a wire
Let this little clip from Zero Hedge sink in for a moment.
In a shocking report citing a bevy of anonymous DOJ officials, the NYT recounted on Friday an aborted mutiny attempt organized by Rosenstein, who allegedly tried to organize members of Trump's cabinet to invoke the 25th amendment to oust Trump from office. In an attempt to persuade the clearly reluctant members of Trump's cabinet, Rosenstein suggested that he or other officials should secretly tape Trump "to expose the chaos" he said was engulfing the West Wing.
This is being reported by several sources, including the New York Times, ABC News, Zero Hedge, and the Daily Caller. I first came across this information while monitoring one of the Qanon aggregation boards that I use to follow Q posts.

Goodbye, Mr. Rosenstein.
The first source cited by Q is a New York Times article which I cannot access because it is behind a paywall. The second link provided in the Q post is to a tweet which I am embedding here.
BOMBSHELL: Days after FBI Director James Comey was fired, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein discussed wearing a "wire" to record conversations with President Trump & recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office - NY Times

It was not just himself that Rosenstein suggested to wear a wire, but that other persons with close contact with the Oval Office also do so. From the ABC News link:
Sources familiar with the memos of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe tell ABC News that, according to those memos, during a conversation in May 2017 between McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Rosenstein suggested that McCabe or others wear a wire when speaking with President Donald Trump.
Note the timing of when Rosenstein offered to wear a wire. It was the day after May 9, 2017 when James Comey was fired as FBI director. Rosenstein wrote the letter recommending that Comey be fired.
One week later, Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian collusion. This investigation is still ongoing even though there has been no evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with the Russians to influence the outcome of the Presidential race in 2016.
The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit.
This is not about whether or not we like Trump. What we are seeing is an attempt of the deep state players to stage a Presidential coup. Is this not sedition, at best? Whatever it is, it is shocking that people within our government would go to such lengths to remove a President.
To be clear, I am not defending Trump, but I am defending our system of government. Based upon some earlier Q posts, I believe that this revelation may prove to be among the milder ones if more comes out. There are plenty of checks and balances built within our government that do not require the illegal wiretapping of the President or staging a soft coup.
