Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein suggested he secretly recorded @POTUS and discussed the 25th Amendment, reports @nytimes.
“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” Rosenstein said in a statement. “Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
My colleague @masoodfarivar relays from source who was in room (with DAG when he made the comment): “I remember this meeting and remember the wire comment. The statement was sarcastic and was never discussed with any intention of recording a conversation with the president.”
