Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein has denied trying to force the exit of POTUS, Donald Trump.
The New York Times, who have been fingered to be posing an anti-Trump front reported that Rosenstein was recorded to have stated his displeasure with the President’s system of governance.
Rosenstein has denied in clear terms, calling his words ‘sarcastic’ as he questioned the veracity of one of America’s top newspapers.
Trump had been under gridlocks ever since he caused the exit of FBI boss over the investigation of Russian involvements in the election that brought him in.
Reports had also suggested Rosenstein using a recorder to take down the accounts of the President when he visits the White House, a claim he has denied.
“The New York Times’ story is inaccurate and factually incorrect.
“I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda.
“But let me be clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th amendment.”
He said the 25th amendment will not be invoked despite calls from some quarters revealing there’s no basis for invocation.
Rosenstein had hired Mueller to lead the drilling for investigation into Russia’s President, Putin’s activities in the 2016 Presidential elections.
He may be in line to lose his job after analysts suggested Trump has grown more impatient with criticisms from any arm of his government.
