There is a ‘bureaucratic coup’ against President Donald Trump, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is charging, and he thinks a special counsel should investigate it.

‘There is a bureaucratic coup going on in the Department of Justice and FBI and someone needs to look at it,’ Graham said on ‘Fox News Sunday.’

Graham was responding to a sensational story that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he should make covert audio recordings of President Trump in order to build a case for removing him from office, according to a New York Times report last week.

Rosenstein disputed that account on Friday, and a Justice Department official who was reportedly in the room when Rosenstein talked about using the 25th Amendment to end the Trump presidency says he was being sarcastic.

Graham said the deputy attorney general should not be fired.

‘He shouldn’t fire Rosenstein unless you believe Rosenstein was lying,’ he said.

However, he said, ‘We need a special counsel to look at this.’

He said the reports on Rosenstein confirm President Trump’s suspicions there is a ‘deep state’ that was working to keep him from defeating Hillary Clinton and is now working against his presidency.

‘Before the election, the people in question tried to taint the election, tip it to [Hillary] Clinton’s favor. After the election, they’re trying to undermine the president,’ Graham said.

The 25th Amendment allows for a majority of the president’s cabinet, or ‘such other body as Congress may by law provide,’ to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to a full congressional vote.
