Despite our aversion to anonymous sources, sometimes you just need to get a job done. That is the position we found ourselves in when we reached out to our anonymous source at the New York Times and they revealed that he, yes he, is a member of the Deep State and is leading the resistance movement from within the administration. So when we saw some of the key markers in the writing and the substance of what was said, we had a pretty good idea. Our unnamed source confirmed it. Fearful of losing her job with the New York Times, she asked that we don’t reveal her name and we agreed.
When you think about it, the Op-Ed writer identity makes sense. He writes that they have worked to curb Trump’s agenda. But Trump’s agenda marches on with tax cuts, portions of the border wall already under construction, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, tariffs, wins with North Korea, and a tougher stance with allies who haven’t paid their fair share. Obamacare has been dismantled without the mandate, and pages of crippling regulations have been tossed in the trash. Trump has successfully placed 24 judges, including one to the Supreme Court and one pending. There is only one area where his agenda has been thwarted, and that aroused our now confirmed suspicion.
The anonymous Op-Ed came from the office of Rod Rosenstein. Whether he wrote it himself or a staffer claimed his name is unclear.
Trump has failed to “lock her up”, referring to Hillary Clinton and her illegal email server and destruction of evidence. Trump has not fired Rosenstein, Sessions, Ohr, Mueller, or several others potentially involved in the “Deep State” movement to protect Clinton. The agents who have been fired have been as a result of internal DOJ investigations with overwhelming evidence of bias. Rosenstein in fact attempted at one point to create an Obstruction of Justice charge against Trump by recommending he fire Comey and then refusing to clear the record when people speculated that Comey was fired to stop the Russian investigation.
Rosenstein also set up the special counsel investigation with Mueller and has prevented Mueller from being fired. Meanwhile, he has not set up a second special counsel investigation to look into how the Clinton email investigation was handled. Many observers, including Trump, have been tearing their hair out trying to figure out why the Clinton email investigation continues to go under the radar. It is clear now that Rosenstein considers this part of his resistance duties, to steer Trump away from what he believes are Trump’s worst inclinations.
Rosenstein himself at one point faced impeachment proceedings from Congress for failing to produce evidence, refusing to remove unnecessary redaction from reports, and refusing to set up a second special counsel to look into the FBI’s handling of the Clinton investigation.
Chuck Schumer himself said that intel officials have a way to “strike back” if someone speaks badly about them. Rod Rosenstein wrote the New York Times Op-Ed because he believes he has a duty to stop Trump. That idea has been articulated throughout the FBI higher ups in texts on record, and through DOJ employee Bruce Ohr who continued to feed fake dirt on Trump to the FBI from Christopher Steele even after the FBI fired Steele. Rosenstein also knows his time is running out. As soon as the Russia investigation is over, which should be very soon, or right after the election Rosenstein and Sessions will be looking for jobs. For Rosenstein it was now or never. He knew he would eventually be discovered, but he is the most expendable.
Our report likely won’t be picked up. That’s Ok. Unbiased observers have already seen this move to invoke the 25th amendment by the Deep State and take it for what it is. It is the Birther Movement part II. No one who matters takes it seriously. The New York Times doesn’t have the credibility it used to. The story, like Russian meddling, won’t affect a single vote. But the source will be discovered by the media in time and face the consequences that come with trying to stage an internal coup against the President of the United States. Until then, President Trump will continue to implement the portions of his agenda that don’t run through Rod Rosenstein’s office.
