Rod RosensteinDeputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein proposed secretly recording conversations in the Oval Office with President Trump last year and discussed the possibility of Cabinet officials invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president, according to The New York Times.

The newspaper, citing people familiar with the matter, reported on Friday that Rosenstein made comments to other Justice Department officials in meetings in spring 2017 about secretly recording Trump after the president fired FBI Director James Comey.

Rosenstein reportedly made the comments to then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who detailed Rosenstein's comments in memos, according to the sources cited by the Times.

In the discussions, Rosenstein reportedly floated recruiting Cabinet secretaries, such as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and White House chief of staff John Kelly behind an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment, which allows members of a president's Cabinet to remove him by majority vote if he is deemed unfit for office.
