“I never pursued or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false,” Rosenstein said, according to NBC’s Peter Alexander.
According to the NYT report, he allegedly discussed wearing a wire to record President Donald Trump and volunteered to recruit cabinet officials to potentially remove the president from office by implementing the 25th amendment.
