The FISA warrants were all legally obtained. Thats why Trump has "decided" not to declassify them.

First thing I thought of reading through all this...I'm betting NYT got played by the administration, and they put this out there as a pretext to firing Rosenstein.
Today looks like Rosenstein's last day.

Rosenstein Suggested He Secretly Record Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment
— The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit.
Mr. Rosenstein then raised the idea of wearing a recording device or “wire,” as he put it, to secretly tape the president when he visited the White House. One participant asked whether Mr. Rosenstein was serious, and he replied animatedly that he was.
The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” he said in a statement. “I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda. But let me be clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
Yikes, unnamed sources currently, but damn what’s the threshold for treason?
