Report: Rod Rosenstein Was an Active Player in the Russiagate Coup Attempt
One of the people who seems to have skated through the Russiagate coup attempt against President Trump if former Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Most of us have suspected that Rosenstein was a dirty cop all along; he signed the fictitious FISA warrant against Trump campaign staffer Carter Page, after all.
But proof that Rosenstein actually knew that Russiagate was a seditious coup attempt was scarce – until now.
By doing the job that the mainstream media refuses to do, Judicial Watch has obtained all of Rod Rosenstein’s emails and text messages through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Judicial Watch released all of Rosenstein’s messages between the key dates of May 8 through May 22, 2017.
Before we get to the substance of those messages, here are three key dates from that time frame. Fix these in your mind, because these are important:
- May 8, 2017: Rod Rosenstein sends a memo to President Trump, urging him to fire then-FBI Director James Comey.
- May 9, 2017: President Trump fires Comey.
- May 17, 2017: Rod Rosenstein appoints Robert Mueller as Special Counsel to investigate President Trump.
On May 12, three days after Trump fired Comey, Rosenstein sent an email to Robert Mueller stating:
“The boss [then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions] and his staff do not know about our discussions.”
There is no prior previous email communication between Mueller and Rosenstein, so it’s clear that most of their earlier communications were via phone calls, which are not generally subject to FOIA requests.
It’s also clear from that message that Rosenstein was going out of his way to keep his communications with Mueller a secret.
The May 12 to 15 timeline is also the exact period when Rosenstein discussed wearing a wire to record President Trump surreptitiously. Rosenstein made the offer to fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
This was yet another plot to remove Trump from office. The plan under discussion by McCabe, Rosenstein and others was remove the president by using the 25th Amendment. They would oust Trump by declaring him mentally ill, and their proof would be Rosenstein’s illicit wire-wearing recordings of Trump.
Rosenstein claimed that this was a “joke” when the details of those conversations were revealed.
On May 16, Rosenstein sent a self-righteous email to a friend of his who used to work the Bush administration. That man’s name is Mark Filip, and he was a Deputy Attorney General for President Bush (suggesting a link to both Bush and Obama holdovers in the coup attempt).
Rosenstein told Filip:
“I am with Mueller. He shares my views. Duty Calls. Sometimes the moment chooses us.”
Good grief, what a drama queen! Who talks about themselves like that?
Aside from the self-important drama queenery of that message, it reveals a boatload of evidence about Rosenstein’s intentions.
Mark Filip, the guy that Rosenstein sent the message to, is no longer a Justice Department employee; he works for a private law firm. Plus, the message was sent the day before Mueller’s appointment was announced to the public.
“I am with Mueller. He shares my views.” Rosenstein clearly had a preconceived outcome for the investigation. He was not approaching the investigation from a “let’s-see-where-the-evidence-takes-us” point of view.
He just knew in his heart that Mueller would be able to pin something – anything – on Trump that would prove that Russian collusion was a real thing.
“Duty Calls. Sometimes the moment chooses us.” Rosenstein had a grandiose vision of himself as a savior of the anti-American, pro-globalist elites in Washington, DC. He expected to be hailed as a hero when Trump was carted off in handcuffs for Russian collusion.
By telling one of his former Deep State buddies that “the moment chooses us,” Rosenstein was really saying that he, Robert Mueller, and the other coup plotters were chosen by God to save the nation from Trump.
On May 17, the day after Rosenstein told his friend that he was “chosen,” he announced the appointment of Mueller to the world. If there were any remaining doubts over Rod Rosenstein’s role in the coup, these communications should shatter them entirely.
Rosenstein was a central player in the coup and viewed himself as central to the efforts to unlawfully remove a president from office under false pretenses. He was a dirty cop all along.
If you can’t trust one of Obama’s Harvard classmates like Rod Rosenstein, who can you trust in this world?
