Former Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz called for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe to be questioned under oath about their role in allegedly trying to remove President Donald Trump.
Chaffetz was discussing allegations against Rosenstein about him colluding with others in the government to remove Trump from power by wearing a wire and having him declared incompetent through the 25th Amendment.

“Let’s believe Rosenstein if he did say something sarcastically — what was the underlying discussion?” Chaffetz asked on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “Why was it they had six or seven people there talking about taking down Donald Trump?”
“Remember the context. They had just gotten rid of director Comey based on the Rosenstein memo in part,” he continued. “And the second part was, it was a day or two before Rod Rosenstein actually appoints the special counsel.”
Chaffetz said Rosenstein, McCabe and anyone else connected to the discussion about possibly removing Trump should be brought in for questioning to clarify what actually happened.
“Really what they should be doing is identifying those six or seven people in that circle. Identify them. Bring them in for transcribed interviews under oath and start to try to dissect this,” he concluded. “And that cannot happen soon enough.”
