Chuck Schumer is now jumping to the defense of Deep State operative Rod Rosenstein, and warning President Trump not to fire him.
The move came after New York Times printed a story that indicated Rosenstein had weaved a massive plot to take down Trump from the inside, by secretly recording conversations and then trying to use the 25th Amendment to get him fired.
So, it only stands to reason that slimy Schumer would come to Rosenstein’s rescue.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday that a New York Times story reporting that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein suggested secretly recording President Trump in the White House should not be used as “pretext” to justify firing Rosenstein.
The Times also reported, based on second-hand sources, that Rosenstein discussed using the 25th Amendment with Cabinet members to remove Trump for being unfit for duty. Within hours Trump allies pounced, calling for the firing of Rosenstein.
Rod Rosenstein must be fired today. @realDonaldTrump

“This story must not be used as a pretext for the corrupt purpose of firing Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein in order [to] install an official who will allow the president to interfere with the special counsel’s investigation,” Schumer said in a statement, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
White House chief of staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and other officials “have been reported to say critical things of the president without being fired,” Schumer added.
