With the entire national media focused on the bruising confirmation battle for new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, another massive story has all but disappeared.
That would be the fate of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who will be meeting this week with members of Congress over an explosive story that he offered to wear a wire to secretly record President Trump and to then lobby administration members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.
The Kavanaugh circus forced Trump to put his meeting with Rosenstein on the back burner and speculation has swirled that he would either resign or be fired for his role in what can be referred to as Operation Get Trump.
The plot to reverse the results of the election relied heavily on the infamous and discredited “PeeGate” dirty dossier put together by slimy British spook Christopher Steele and oppo research firm Fusion GPS.
The contents of that 35-page conglomeration of “salacious” charges was paid for by Team Hillary and then was used to procure a FISA warrant to conduct surveillance on Trump campaign members including Carter Page.
The surveillance set off a chain of events that led to Rosenstein’s appointment of deep state dirty cop Robert Mueller to undertake a sweeping fishing expedition in order to find “evidence” that could justify Trump’s impeachment.
Republican Devin Nunes who is the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee spoke to Fox News and delivered a bombshell that the politicized FBI headed up by James Comey received the dossier directly from a DNC lawyer which would be revealed if Trump’s request to declassify portions of FISA warrants and texts between dirty FBI and DOJ officials ever takes place.

Via the Washington Examiner, “Devin Nunes says ex-top FBI lawyer’s testimony is ‘absolute proof’ of FISA abuse”:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said Sunday there is now “absolute proof” that the FBI failed to inform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of pertinent Democratic interests when applying to spy on onetime Trump campaign official Carter Page.
The ex-top lawyer at the FBI, James Baker, told congressional investigators last week in a closed session that a Democrat-connected attorney from the law firm linked to the controversial Trump dossier gave him materials about Russian election meddling to the FBI’s general counsel during the 2016 presidential campaign.
During an appearance on Fox News, Nunes said this revelation is important because Baker reported directly to former FBI Director James Comey and because it clashed with sworn testimony by federal officials.
“Numerous officials at the DOJ and the FBI have told us under oath … nobody at FBI or DOJ knew anything about that the Democratic Party being behind the Clinton dirt,” Nunes said. “Now you have one of the top lawyers for the Democrats and the Clinton campaign who was feeding information directly to the top lawyer at the FBI.”
“Before even the FISA warrant,” he continued. “Now you have absolute proof that that wasn’t told to the FISA court. So you want your the evidence of FISA abuse? There it is right there.”
Could an “October Surprise” be in the offing?
