McEnany: Rosenstein ‘Made it Very Clear There Was an Illegal Coup’ Against Trump
White House press secretary weighs in on testimony
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany weighed on the testimony of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein saying, "he made it very clear" an illegal coup was taking place against President Donald Trump.
During Rosenstein's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he admitted he had not “read every word" of the faulty FISA application for a warrant on an adviser to Donald Trump’s campaign.
"The Rod Rosenstein hearing made it very clear that there was an illegal coup taking place that President Donald Trump was able to figure out, long before anyone else."
"President Trump caught them in the act, attempting to overturn the will of the American People."

President Trump caught them in the act, attempting to overturn the will of the American People.
The review of the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation into alleged “Russia collusion," which took nearly $32 million of taxpayers' money, delved deeper into how the probe came about.
Last April, Rosenstein left the department after Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded Trump had not conspired with Russia.
McEnany added that Trump was “dismayed,” by the testimony of Rosenstein.
“The president is dismayed,” she said.

“A Republican campaign was spied on by a Democratic presidency, a Democratic administration, based on a dossier paid for by his opponent, Hillary Clinton, and the DNC," she added.
"It is the biggest political scandal that we’ve seen."
"We hope to get the bottom of this because it should never be done again to any president of either political party.”
Rosenstein admitted he would not have signed off a surveillance warrant if he knew then what he knows now.
The former Deputy Attorney General also blamed Obama-era FBI officials for keeping him in the dark regarding the misconduct surrounding the warrant.
Rosenstein’s appearance comes just one day before the committee votes on potential subpoenas for documents and testimony from top Obama officials.
