Top US officials considered removing Trump using 25th amendment, FBI lawyers confirm

Corroboration came in secret congressional hearings last year

An explosive claim that senior officials at the FBI and Justice Department discussed forcing Donald Trump out of office has been backed by two more witnesses in secret Congressional hearings.

Former acting head of the FBI Andrew McCabe revealed earlier this week there had been conversations at the top echelons of the government about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Mr Trump after he fired FBI director James Comey in May 2017.

Mr McCabe told CBS News officials at the Justice Department had held meetings where they discussed how they might recruit the vice- president and a majority of Cabinet ministers into voting to force Mr Trump to quit.

Now, several US media outlets have reported at least two FBI lawyers have confirmed this account during private testimony before a Congressional committee.

James Baker, who worked as the FBI’s most senior lawyer during the Comey episode, reportedly told the oversight and judiciary committees during behind-closed-doors questioning in October he had been told at the time about the plans to depose Mr Trump.

"This was the third and final time I was photographing Donald Trump during his working visit to the UK. I'd noticed he had a tendency to hold Theresa May by the hand when they used stairs, so I lay on the floor for fifteen minutes waiting for the pair to exit via some steps. As they did, Trump took May by the arm and shouted over his shoulder, "Yes" in response to the question "Mr. President, will you tell Putin to stay out of the U.S elections?" - from a reporter in the press conference."

"I stayed in the room after our reporters had left, and seemingly unnoticed like the cliched 'fly on the wall', I was witness to this unusual moment."

"I saw the colour-coordinated woman in the back of the ball room while covering mid-term elections. She stood out to me because she was lit by a single overhead light that created deep shadows." "On the morning that I took this picture there was a mad scrum outside the courthouse to get a picture of Stormy Daniels. She didn't enter the regular entrance of a media gauntlet that was set up for her. I placed myself by a window where I saw her passing through the metal detector. Shooting through the window was difficult but I was able to make the frame."

Another lawyer who worked at the FBI, Sally Moyer, has also confirmed at private hearings she was in meetings when the topic was discussed, according to Bloomberg.

Section four of the amendment allows the removal of a sitting US president if the vice-president and a majority of the Cabinet declare them “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office”.

Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who was allegedly leading the conversations about the 25th Amendment, has denied he ever tried to organise Cabinet officials to invoke the provision.

He also denied claims he suggested he could wear a wire to record potentially incriminating meetings with Mr Trump.

“As the deputy attorney general previously has stated, based on his personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment, nor was [Mr Rosenstein] in a position to consider invoking the 25th Amendment,” a statement from the Justice Department said.

How the 25th Amendment can stop a Donald Trump presidency However, both Mr Baker and Ms Moyer reportedly gave evidence to the Congressional committees they were told at the time about Mr Rosenstein’s wire proposal.

“I took it seriously, because my assessment was they took it seriously,” Mr Baker said, according to a transcript of his evidence reviewed by Bloomberg.

“This was not a joking sort of time. This was pretty dark.

“What I recall being said is that the deputy attorney general has two members of the Cabinet… [who] were willing to go down this road already.”

Mr Trump’s spokeswoman Sarah Sanders has previously dismissed the 25th Amendment claims by attacking Mr McCabe as a “total disgrace” who was fired because of his “selfish and destructive agenda” in opening a “completely baseless investigation into the president”.


Poster Comment:

It is important to bring this up and keep reminding people of the Dims routine to keep Trump off balance with the failed impeachment. Trump was an outsider who upset the applecart by beating the establishment choice in 2016.

When on DAY ONE, we had idiots like TLAIB screeching that they were “Going to impeach that motherfucker” on the house floor, that was when you knew that the whole presidency was going to be an off kilter nightmare. It was at that point that all good patriots should have stormed Washington and removed from office any and all democrat and republican traitors from their offices for being complicit in the treason they were committing.

We are not dealing with just a little issue of people being a problem, we are dealing with straight up treason. PERIOD.

You will recall this is the reason the people were given the 2nd Amendment. The Supreme Court has ruled on two occasions that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right, and does not apply to the National Guard which is a part of the organized Army.

There have been two rulings by the Supreme Court in regards to the 2nd Amendment, District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago.

McDonald help to clarify issues that were not made clear in Heller. ;)

"Trump was an outsider who upset the applecart by beating the establishment choice in 2016."

That's the load of crap the Khazar's have everyone believing, anyway.

Amazing how a Rothschild asset like Trump could have made it this far into the Global Reset without blowing the cover story.

Trump knew what was coming when they dealt NK into the future economic order.

Trump knew that a troublesome bioweapon coronavirus was circulating in Wuhan last year WAY before anyone but Izrael and the ZioGov intel agencies knew.

And China had signed on to all of it (Global Reset / Great Transformation) at the very latest by the G7 summit (June?) of 2018.

China was promised global dominance in the next order; another contrived Cold War is well underway.

Greater Izrael is in the bag and New Babylon is sitting pretty; who needs Amerika anymore, anyway?

Alright, there is a lot out there which says Trump is owned by the Rothschilds.

But he has shown he is worth his salt since he has turned the country around.

It is true that the Balfour Declaration, which was presented to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

If you read the Declaration itself you will see that it says the native population should not be displaced. But it is historical fact that they were displaced.

Israel was founded on terrorism with the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946. The British were using that hotel as their HQ. The bombing was perpetrated by the Jewish terror group Irgun.

Rahm Emmanuel (former Mayor of Chicago) and his brother Ezekiel are the scion of Irgun terrorists. ;)

You had me at that. Who in their right freaking mind has ever said or thought the US would be a better place if only it was more like Somalia?

The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

When I moved to the twin cities, the Somali population was relatively small, and were actually refugees. In 2010, the president of Somalia came and held a big rally in Minneapolis to beg the Somali population to come home. Their answer was “No”. Why? Because for their first 10 years here, Somalis pay no taxes, get free medical, dental and optical care. Get their rent subsidized, get jobs, are eligible for welfare. We had a couple hundred million dollars leave the state in suitcases at the hands of Somali grifters who had “Daycare” centers with no kids.

They are the number one source of human trafficking here. They steal guns, and ship them back to Somalia. They buy and sell drugs, kidnap white people, and have the gall to demand we respect their Sharia brand of laws.

So who thought it was a great idea? Well, Lutheran Social Services for starters. That is who is bringing in ALL of the Muslim refugees. They are working hand in hand with the government and that is their number one funding source. They are supposed to be a non- profit but they are indeed making money hand over fist.

Obama and Keith Ellison did their best to augment the numbers, and now they have representation that is just as vile and as corrupt as any of the Somali warlords in Somalia. Yet, no one here seems to be able to do anything to unseat these traitors. Because the media will not report the truth. They want this state to be turned into a third world hell hole.
