Is Donald Trump's Cabinet Really Plotting Against Him?

Donald Trump's former presidential campaign adviser Roger Stone, in a recent C-span interview, stated that some members of the President Trump's cabinet are plotting to remove him from office. He said they are considering whether they can invoke the 25th Amendment to that end. I think it’s the fallback plan for the establishment. That’s why I’m trying to sound the clarion call. When asked for specifics he would not discuss those but insisted that there is basis for his claims.

Mr. Stone co-hosts an internet and radio program, "War Room"   He previously advised Richard Nixon and co-founded a lobbying company along with Paul Manafort who was Donald Trump's campaign chairman.  Mr. Stone predicted that the outcome of Robert Mueller’s investigation will have an effect on Mr. Trump's potential removal from office.

“There is a plan afoot that is broader than just the Cabinet. The 25th Amendment requires a majority of the Cabinet and the vice president [to remove the president]. I don’t think that is achievable today, not on the heels of the historic tax cut, not on the heels of the disintegration of the credibility of the Mueller investigation. But we have seen what happens when a hysteria is whipped up among the people by some in the mainstream media. And I have always thought this is plan B for the two-party duopoly that has run this country into the ground,” Mr. Stone added.
