Is it a coincidence that NY Times publishes story on Rosenstein at time they are pushing a story on Russian election interference?

NY Times:

Rod Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment

In the turbulent days after the firing of James B. Comey, the deputy attorney general appeared conflicted about his role and wanted to expose administration dysfunction, people around him said.
It is interesting that the Times would choose this time to publish this story because one thing Rosenstein has been consistent on is that there is no evidence that the Russian interference did effect the outcome of the election.

That is inconsistent with the Times current push to try to regenerate the Russian conspiracy story, despite the obvious failure of investigations to show any collusion between the Russians and Trump.  What they are still trying to do is delegitimize the President in hopes of swaying the midterm elections.

The criticism of Rosenstein on the right is that he has blocked releasing relevant data about the conspiracy within the DOJ and FBI to effect a coup attempt against the President.

The whole suggestion of using the 25th Amendment for deposing the President is specious anyway.  It was clearly designed for a situation where the President is incapacitated by a stroke or unconsience because of an assassination attempt.  To use it because of policy differences that the left have been pushing would be an illegitimate use of the amendment and a coup attempt.

The alleged statement by Rosenstein was apparently said in jest and was found in an Andrew McCabe memo.  McCabe has been accused of leading an effort to get the President on the specious allegations of Russian collusion.  The momos have been closely held and the only copies outside the DOJ were in the hands of the Mueller team.  It would not surprise me if that was the source of this leak.
