Rod Rosenstein Out, William Barr In: Time To Investigate Deep State Plot Against Trump

Deep State: Now that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has said he'll leave the Justice Department in mid-March, it's time to take stock of the damage Rosenstein and others in the Deep State did by quietly plotting to remove President Trump from office. This bureaucratic coup attempt has no parallel in modern U.S. history.
The timing of Rosenstein's departure is no accident. Following co-plotter and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's bombshell revelation to CBS' 60 Minutes that Rosenstein suggested using the 25th Amendment as a means to get rid of Trump, Rosenstein had no choice but to leave. He was likely to be fired.
It was made even worse by McCabe's allegation that Rosenstein also offered to wear a wire on a trip to the White House. Rosenstein claims he was being sarcastic.
So, for Rosenstein, the walls were closing in.
Remember, it was Rosenstein who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel a mere eight days after FBI Director James Comey was fired for lying. No doubt Rosenstein wasn't happy that straight-shooter William Barr was confirmed as attorney general in February, putting Rosenstein on a very hot seat.
