Lindsey Graham Goes after McCabe, Rosenstein. PROMISES They’ll Face Justice For Their Attempted Coup

Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee came out swinging when the topic of a possible “administrative coup” surfaced on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Host Margaret Brennan asked Graham for his take on the 60 Minutes Scott Pelley interview with former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. In that interview, McCabe claimed he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed the possibility of using the 25thAmendment to remove President Trump from office.

Most telling was the flippant way McCabe referred to such an action during the 60 Minutes interview. Pelley asked McCabe how Rosenstein brought up the 25th to which he replied, “Honestly I don’t remember. He– it was just another kind of topic that he jumped to in the midst of- of- of a wide ranging conversation.”

When Brennan asked Senator Graham if he intended to subpoena McCabe and Rosenstein about the matter he retorted, “How can I not… [McCabe] … made an accusation that floors me. … I can imagine … we were talking about getting rid of President Clinton, it’d be front page news all over the world. Well, we’re going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people in under oath and find out, through questioning, who’s telling the truth because the underlying accusation is beyond stunning.”

Brennan tried to defend McCabe and Rosenstein saying to Graham, “But you recognize there that McCabe is laying out the- the grounds of what he saw as an obstruction of justice attempt.”

Graham was quick to assert that a number at the very top of the FBI and justice department has a distinct political agenda driven by political bias. He then cut straight to the point saying, “People that enforce the law — can’t take it into their own hands. And was this an attempted bureaucratic coup?”

Senator Graham answered his own question by first reminding viewers that then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe at the recommendation of The Department of Justice’s inspector general. McCabe was fired for lying about leaking among other things.

Rosenstein has, in turn, denied McCabe’s claims about their conversation. He claims the subject of the 25th and possibly wearing a wire into the Oval Office he brought up were done so as a sarcastic jest. McCabe, on the other hand, claimed during his 60 Minutes interview, the topics were seriously discussed.

For months now Rosenstein has rebuffed every request from Congress to testify about allegations of insubordination within the White House. Now leaving the Justice Department, Rosenstein is not off the hook as far as Graham is concerned.

“I don’t know who’s telling the truth. I know Rosenstein vehemently denied it, but we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” said Graham.

The discussion McCabe claims to have had with Rosenstein occurred during the tumultuous eight days after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey. The New York Times first reported in September 2018 that Rosenstein talked of wearing a wire and a possible inquiry into invoking the 25th Amendment.

These were the eight days from Comey’s firing to the point that which Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel. At the highest levels of American law enforcement, Deep State agents were trying to figure out if they had enough support to get rid of the president.

Graham reminded viewers that the 25th Amendment was not added to the Constitution for the purpose of removing a President one disagrees with.

Graham vowed he intends to press the matter about McCabe and Rosenstein. Hopefully, that will include asking questions the mainstream media refuses to. Questions such as:

  • Why did McCabe meet with Page and Strzokto discuss their hatred for then-candidate Trump and talk about an “insurance policy” in case the election went against Clinton?
  • Isn’t it odd that the dossier used to gain a warrant against Carter Page and kick of the Trump/Russia collusion narrative was prepared by a foreign agent, paid for by the Democratic Party when its leadership knew the document to be unreliable?
  • Why does a discredited narrative about the President continue to have life while credible and verifiable evidence of what Graham referred to as an “administrative coup” is buried by the media?

Sorry Mr. Rosenstein, something as serious as even talking about the 25th Amendment is not a joke. It shows there are members of government that think they know better than the American people—and that strikes at the very heart of our republic.

  1. The last two plus years has been a organized, planned, coup to get rid of President Trump. These government employees hate President Trump so bad that they will do anything and say anything knowing it is a lie to rid this nation of our president. Each and everyone of these treasonous cowards should be behind bars. They took an oath of office to be neutral and not take sides. Well we all know how that went down.
    The American people want the truth and we absolutely want these law breakers behind bars with loss of their pensions and credibility’s. Theses individuals need to be made an example of, so hopefully in the future that their replacements will think twice before making the same decisions to do such a hideous act.

    1. We have threw the years tolerated both good and bad president’s in the past… President Trump is the best there is…. Hate him or live him he is what is best for our country… And for the ones who calls themselves democrats or really communist… They have buried that a Muslim is not to hold a government office. They say it did not say that but, it did.. We need our Republican Party to stand beside Trump, we did not vote you in to fight with one another… But to work together as a whole.

  2. Here’s an idea, WHY don’t we quit “ripping” & talking & START ARRESTING & PROSECUTING THESE OBVIOUS CRIMINALS, rather than wasting time trying to dig up nonexistent dirt on Our President!!! We the People ARE SICK & TIRED OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS DRAGGING THEIR FEET TRYING TO APPEAR LIKE THEY’RE ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING!

  3. The thinking American people, want action, not promises anymore! It’s time to stop the witch hunt by mueller and let’s get the REAL criminals, hillary, comey, mccabe, rosenstein, ALL those who are guilty of this nonsense and put them in jail where they belong! Those who are still too stupid to accept the truth when it slaps you in the face, need to shut up, listen and learn. It’s time to move on and Make America Great Again!

    1. I am with you Katy, “We The People “, want justice done toward all Democrates they really need to be made examples out if… Throw them in jail please.. And why is Muller doing the investigation, he has been one who was behind it… That is like putting a rat over a mouse….

  4. I cannot believe the lack of patriotism in this country since Obama opened the gates of USA and let what’s coming from so many uneducated backward countries. It’s not our responsibility to educate watch these people bring there drugs deseases etc. into our country. Blame. The Democraps for what’s happening to us.

  5. If you haven’t noticed that only republicans are persecuted and prosecuted for invented crimes and democrats real crimes are buried and ignored you are an ignorant fool.

  6. As long as idiots like to with the inability to construct a sentence our country will continue to have problems. They hate President Trump, yet have no trouble defending liars like Hillary and and McCabe and all the celebrities that pretend they are worried about middle class America and this great country. I’m a veteran and as terrible as war is at least we knew the enemy ! Celebrities as well as politicians live in protected homes surrounded by the corrupt media. Grow up liberals or move to a socialist country with aoc the brain dead idiot from ny.

  7. The Good News is that President Trump is MAKING AMERICA GREAT, despite the other things going on with McCabe and the rest! Think on the Good Things like Trump getting his FULL eight years in office!

  8. You know as an American I do in so many ways feel betrayed by my country and my countries laws… For the democrats had been found out as big liars they have betrayed my country. They have stolen money, lied, brought into our great country and elected office Muslims who diffenenatly had a different agenda for this country. And our government does not even elect to protect us… Instead they want to fight with a man who loves America and does elect to put up walls so we can be protected a tab bit more, than we are now. And each one of these powerful people run home each night and hide behind walls, while we are feed to animals. They are so corrupt they get into office by dead people voting and illegals who are not to vote in America’s elections… And not even punished.

  9. Democraps, MSM, deep state and corrupt officials are the internal threats that will significantly cause the decline of the US. Attempts to overthrow the elected President, sabotage the president’s economic and foreign policies, create hate and fake news and all kinds of obstacles and obstructions to stop President have undermine the US status in the world stage. If allowed to continue until the end of president’s term, 4 yrs of service, the American people must be blind, totally brainwashed or just pure stupid. Why would you allow your elected president to be abused for the world to watch until the end of 4 yrs? No honour, respect and integrity. It is self-destructive. Take legal actions against the internal threats now. US has meddled and interfered in the elections of over 45 countries in the world, and now cannot resolve their own internal threats. Why?

  10. Thank you Democrats for turning the once honorable party of President Harry S. Truman into the traitorous totalitarian criminal gang lead by assholes like Pelosi, Waters, Omar and the biggest and dumbest of them all, Cortez – – all working their tiny evil brains off to destroy the United States and transform it into a socialist slave state, complete with concentration camps and death camps for those who don’t obey.
