Republicans introduce articles of impeachment against Rod Rosenstein

July 26, 2018

  Back in April Devin Nunes threatened to impeach Rod Rosenstein if he did not turn over documents related to the Hillary Clinton email scandal and just a couple of weeks ago we heard articles of impeachment were imminent but nothing had come from it. 

  But yesterday Mark Meadows and Jim Jordon introduced five articles of impeachment against Rod Rosenstein, here is more:

A group of conservative House lawmakers on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the top Department of Justice (DOJ) official overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Conservative members led by Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), along with nine co-sponsors, introduced the five articles shortly after a meeting with DOJ officials concerning document production.

And some more:

“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,” Meadows, the head of the House Freedom Caucus and ally of President Trump, said in a statement. “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.”

“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,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), another GOP lawmaker who has been fiercely critical of the DOJ, said in a statement.

  Let’s face it, this is nothing but show for the Republican base and it is going nowhere. Even if the House does manage to impeach him there is no way the Senate is going to vote with a 2/3 majority to remove him from office.

  This is really not all that different from when House Republicans voted time and time again to repeal Obamacare when they knew the votes in the Senate were not there, or when they held Eric Holder in Contempt of the Congress knowing nothing was going to happen to him.

      Now they are backing away from it and going for contempt instead. It is fun to watch the left lose their minds over every single issue every day!
