I'm with Disraeli on this one.
You're reading into it something that isn't there.
Honestly, I'm wondering how you even came up with this stuff....

The princes were also not surprised nor scared when they heard that the lord had vowed to destroy if they did not repent. The princes always seem to be much more than just bystanders. I am very much wondering about a plot to overthrow the king and cause him to loose favor with the lord.
What are you even talking about here? It clearly says the princes were afraid when they heard the words....
14 Therefore all the princes sent Jehudi the son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, unto Baruch, saying, Take in thine hand the roll wherein thou hast read in the ears of the people, and come. So Baruch the son of Neriah took the roll in his hand, and came unto them.
15 And they said unto him, Sit down now, and read it in our ears. So Baruch read it in their ears.
16 Now it came to pass, when they had heard all the words, they were afraid both one and other, and said unto Baruch, We will surely tell the king of all these words.
Furthermore, it was the king who burned the rolls. It says so 3 different times :
22 Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him.
23 And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.
The king sat in the winterhouse. The fire was burning before the him. Jehudi read three or four leaves, and then he (the king) cast it into the fire that was burning before him.
25 Nevertheless Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah had made intercession to the king that he would not burn the roll: but he would not hear them.
28 Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah hath burned.
This is God speaking here. He says that the king burned the roll. It even says that the princes begged him not to! Good night!
