GOP lawmakers introduce articles of impeachment against Rosenstein

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.

The introduction of the resolution is the latest sign of escalating efforts among conservatives to oust the DOJ’s No. 2 official.

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

"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 statement.

“Multiple times we’ve caught DOJ officials hiding information from Congress, withholding relevant documents, or even outright ignoring Congressional subpoenas—and now we have evidence that Mr. Rosenstein signed off on a document using unverified political opposition research as a cornerstone of a FISA application to spy on an American citizen working for the Trump campaign," Meadows continued.

The articles include a series of allegations against Rosenstein.

They charge that Rosenstein has a conflict of interest in Mueller's probe, stating that he is a “witness” to the ongoing investigation into potential abuse since he signed off on an FBI surveillance renewal application to wiretap Carter Page.

“As such, his conduct in authorizing the FISA surveillance at issue in the joint congressional investigation makes him a fact witness central to the ongoing investigation of potential FISA abuse,” read the articles of impeachment. “Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s failure to recuse himself in light of this inherent conflict of interest and failure to recommend the appointment of a second Special Counsel constitute dereliction of duty. Wherefore, Rod Rosenstein, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.”

They also allege that Rosenstien has “repeatedly failed to produce documents” requested by the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that are investigating FBI and DOJ decision-making during the 2016 presidential election.

Rosenstein, they allege, has also “attempted to conceal certain facts” by overly redacted documents they requested.

The Justice Department declined to comment on the new articles, but hours before articles were introduced, DOJ officials told a far different story.

Shortly before the 4 p.m. meeting between the DOJ officials and House lawmakers took place, Justice Department officials on Wednesday described in detail the steps they are taking to complete the outstanding document requests as requested by the heads of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

Republicans say the FBI and DOJ have not provided all the documents they are seeking to review as part of the GOP-led investigations into Hillary Clinton's email server while she was serving as secretary of State, as well as the FBI's decision to launch the federal investigation into Russian interference.

The DOJ officials, however, said Wednesday they have largely completed Congress's document requests, noting they are working with the lawmakers and their staff to give them the information they still want to review.

So far, the DOJ officials say they have given lawmakers access to 880,000 pages they've requested, and they continue to accept requests for new information related to House GOP probes.

The officials listed three congressional subpoenas, issued by House Republicans, that they say have either been fulfilled or that they are close to fulfilling.

One DOJ official noted that while the requests are historically high, they are working to respond to the lawmaker's records requests -- and much of it is done quietly.

The Mueller probe ("Russian Collusion") is unraveling ever since the revelation that the FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page and therefore also spy on the Trump campaign was entirely predicated by the phony dossier that the Hillary Clinton campaign paid for.

Worse is that Rosenstein renewed the FISA warrant even after he knew the dossier was bullshit.

Time to pay the piper.

I’m sorry, but Devin Nunez has proven time and again that he is Trump’s rent boy. Same with Paul Ryan et al.

In some ways, it’s something that actually impresses me about Trump; his ability to make grown men abandon their principles and their dignity for Trump. A man who does nothing to earn such sniveling dedication.

That's how cults work. The most lousy slimy thieving piece of shit ends up as a figure of worship and those who just don't get it can never figure out what the fuck it's done to earn complete devotion from those that happily bow down in front of it.

Oh well. Good luck in getting sixteen Democrat senators to vote along with this nonsense if it gets past the GOP lunatics in the House. It'll be dead in the water the second it hits the Senate floor.

Jim Jordan - turned his back on the open sex abuse of students at the college he was working for

Matt Gaetz - serial drunk driver who escaped jail time due to his rich daddy's influence over the local cops

Scott DesJarlais - staunch anti-birth control pro-lifer who paid for an abortion for his mistress

All three are signatories to the impeachment attempt of Rosenstein. Why is it when these things happen the very bottom of the barrel of the GOP and MAGA are always at the very center of it? :? :roll:

More partisan garbage. Republicans have turned the US into a Banana Republik and a sham democracy. I only wonder if it will ever return from the abyss.
