Republicans in the House Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Rod Rosenstein

A number of conservative House members introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday. The effort was led by the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio.) together with nine other co-sponsors. Rosenstein is officially overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The latest move by House Republicans comes as a surprise to no one as Meadows and Jordan have long been critical of both Rosenstein and the Justice Department.

“For 9 months we’ve warned them consequences were coming, and for 9 months we’ve heard the same excuses backed up by the same unacceptable conduct. Time is up and the consequences are here. It’s time to find a new Deputy Attorney General who is serious about accountability and transparency,” Meadows said in a press release.

“The DOJ is keeping information from Congress. Enough is enough. It’s time to hold Mr. Rosenstein accountable for blocking Congress’s constitutional oversight role.” said Jordan.

“Congress gave Mr. Rosenstein plenty of time to comply with our requests. We have been reasonable and upfront with him. Unfortunately, at almost every opportunity, Mr. Rosenstein has resisted and defied Congress’s constitutional oversight. His time to obstruct our investigations has expired,” said fellow House Freedom Caucus member Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ.).

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL.) also released a statement on the topic saying, “Rod Rosenstein and the Department of Justice have repeatedly ignored Congressional requests and subpoenas, showing a complete disregard for Congressional oversight authority. In his capacity as Deputy AG, Mr. Rosenstein oversaw and approved of the likely-improper FISA warrant on Carter Page and subsequent surveillance of President Trump’s team.”

  1. I imagine that Derrell’s reaction is very similar to most of us….including my own. BUT….#1 it’s not an impeachable action equal to a high crime or treason and will never be acted on. #2 Going through all the steps necessary to even start the process is GIVING A PLAYBOOK TO DEMOCRATS that want Trump impeached. It will show the zigs and zags needed to try to get around the fact that there is no crime of that elevation.

    It’s maddening that we apparently have no justice department between him and Jeff milk toast…and it’s dangerous! The President is between a rock and a hard place on this one…..wonder if we bombarded Session with letters asking him to resign would help?

    • Agreed. this should have been a “Contempt of Congress” charge taken to the D.C. court if Republicans were serious. This is, indeed, more Kabuki theater by Washington craptards.
