Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined Fox News’ Chris Wallace this Sunday morning.
And what Senator Graham said will have Rosenstein in a swamp-brine-pickle. (VIDEO BELOW.)
The Senator called for a second special counsel to investigate the ‘bureaucratic coup’ since Rosenstein is potentially a part of it.
As reported by NBC, Rosenstein had “…joked about secretly recording Trump, Justice Department officials” said.
The Deputy AG last spring had said, “Well, what do you want me to do, Andy, wear a wire?” the deputy attorney general asked FBI official Andrew McCabe…” per NBC.
Additionally, we are suppose to believe that Rosenstein was responding to Andrew McCabe’s suggestion to wire the President and invoke the 25th amendment and that is was a joke.
When the news broke, Rosenstein’s statement said, “I never pursed or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false.” (VIDEO BELOW Rosenstein’s statement.)
“Should the President fire Rosenstein?” Wallace asked Senator Graham.
During the interview this morning, Wallace asked Graham, “to what degree does this revelation taint or compromise” the Mueller investigation?“
Remember, it was Rosenstein who hired Mueller in the first place to be the Special Counsel to investigate the President of the United States.
The Senator responded, “He shouldn’t fire Rosenstein unless you believe Rosenstein is lying. He said he did not do the things alleged,” Graham told Wallace. (VIDEO BELOW.)
“But there’s a BUREAUCRATIC COUP against President Trump being discovered here,” Senator Graham said in a STUNNING statement.
The South Carolina Senator explained, “before the election, the people in question tried to TAINT the election…tip it to Clinton’s favor. After the election, they’re trying to undermine the President,” Graham stated in no uncertain terms.
In fairness to Rosenstein, Graham said, “I don’t know what Rosenstein did. But I know what McCabe, Ohr, Page and Strzok did. They tried to destroy this President.”
Senator Graham continued, “If Rosenstein is involved, he should be FIRED. If he’s not involved, leave him alone, but he can’t make that decision.” (VIDEO BELOW.)
Lindsey launched the best remedy in saying, “We need a special counsel to look at this. Not Mr. Horowitz the IG.”
In ending, with a powerful statement, Lindsey Graham said, “Rosenstein is doing the Country a great DISSERVICE by NOT appointing a Special Counsel to look at ALL of this.”
WATCH as the Senator discussed the best solution to take care of Rosenstein’s compromised position.
