Yesterday, New York Times published online a report about Rosenstein, which is in print today. Hours later same day, Jake Tapper of CNN interviewed a writer of that NYT report on a television program "The Lead." The second episode is first.

Note:
(a) Other than a video clip of The Lead, the quotation consists of all of the text.
(b) In reporting Goldman's comment, most American reports use "flippant" instead of "flip."
(c) flip (adj): "talkative and disrespectfully smart, see flippant"

except in the window of print: A top official weighed recruiting cabinet members to invoke 25th Amendment.

Quote:

"None of Mr [deputy attorney general Rod (short for Rodney) J] Rosenstein's proposals apparently came to fruition. It is not clear how determined he was about seeing them through, though he did tell Mr [then acting FBI director Andrew G] McCabe that he might be able to persuade Attorney General Jeff Sessions and John F. Kelly, then the secretary of homeland security and now the White House chief of staff, to mount an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment.

"Merely conducting a straw poll, even if Mr Kelly and Mr Sessions were on board, would be risky if another administration official were to tell the president, who could fire everyone involved to end the effort. * * * None of the people interviewed said that they knew of him ever consulting Mr Kelly or Mr Sessions.

"Mr Rosenstein also asked FBI officials on May 14, [2017,] five days after Mr Comey's firing, about calling him [Comey] for advice about a special counsel. The officials responded that such a call was a bad idea because Mr Comey was no longer in the government. And they were surprised, believing that the idea contradicted Mr Rosenstein's stated reason for backing Mr Comey's dismissal — that he had shown bad judgment in the Clinton email inquiry.

Besides Mueller, "Mr Rosenstein also considered appointing as special counsel James M Cole, himself a former deputy attorney general, three of the people said. * * * Mr Cole served four years [Dec 29, 2010 – Jan 8, 2015] as the No 2 in the Justice Department during the Obama administration

Note:
(a) Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution

(section 1.4: Section 4)
(b) It is imperative to know laws about recording voices. See
Recording Phone Calls and Conversations/ Digital Media Law Project, undated

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein wanted to record inside White House, which is federal property that state or DC law can not reach. But if he had attempted to record outside White House, state or DC law will apply. And Linda Tripp learned a hard lesson.
