Trump is preparing to go on a Deep State ‘jihad’ over NYT’s Rod Rosenstein: report

Published

on

Former and current White House officials warned that Donald Trump is going to go on a Deep State “jihad” in the wake of reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

According to a report from the Daily Beast, aides were waiting to see how “volcanic” Trump’s reaction would be.

“Trump is gonna go on a jihad,” one former senior White House official said. “The NYT op-ed gave an opportunity to really drive home the deep state stuff. With this new story, it gives additional credibility.”

Officials revealed that the leak created a cloud of uncertainty in the White House. “No one knew this was coming and I’m unsure what is going to happen, but most people here are talking about the very real possibility that Rod is on his way out,” a Department of Justice official said.

Firing Rosenstein would shake up the midterms, but slTrump’s ally Eric Bolling said Rosenstein should still be fired.

“You wouldn’t joke about carrying a bomb on an airplane, would you?” he said. “Prior to this, I was one of the people telling Trump he should not be removed…Now, I think there are grounds to fire Rosenstein, and put someone else in there, with minimal, if any, political fallout for Trump.”
