Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is coming under fire from several fronts. Perhaps another section of the huge DOJ Inspector General's report is about to be published?

On Friday, Fox News reported that articles of impeachment have been drafted for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, although they have not yet been officially filed.

Fox News' congressional reporter Chad Pergram reported that the articles of impeachment have been drafted although it is not clear which lawmaker drafted the articles and it's not clear if they will go to a committee or to the floor.
Developing at: www.dailywire.com...

Yesterday, Rod Rosenstein was hastily summoned to the White House. He spoke with President Trump for about an hour. This morning, Rosenstein told friends that he's preparing to be fired. (Sounds like someone who's guilty and ready to pay.)

What does impeaching the Assistant Attorney General entail? Congressional hearings and such? Can Rosenstein simply quit, and avoid all the embarassment?

The Constitution gives the House of Representatives “the sole Power of Impeachment” (Article I, Section 2) of federal officers and gives the Senate “the sole Power to try all Impeachments” (Article I, Section 3). In the constitutional procedure of impeachment and removal, the House serves in the role of a grand jury bringing charges against an officer suspected of “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” (Article II, Section 4).

Thank-you for that background information. The House Intelligence Committee threatened earlier in the week to Impeach Rosenstein if he didn't produce a document they've been trying to get for 16 months. He produced it 3 hours before the deadline. There's something sinister about Rosenstein.

Wouldn't get excited about it yet, as impeachment articles can be drawn at any time for any reason. Articles of impeachment have been filed against Trump, Obama, Bush, etc.

Wait till it actually passes a vote in the House and gets sent to the Senate.

Exactly, articles of impeachment don't mean a hell of a lot unless it moves to a trial in the Senate. Only the House can draft the Articles of Impeachment, but unless he is found guilty during the trial in the Senate, his job is secure.

Nunes directing the House Intel Committee has
demanded James Comeys Memos.

The Impeachment will certainly add to
the leverage, though it is definitely
needed as Rosenstein has stalled
for months after years.

He is also very conflicted, and should
have recused himself from The Russia Probe.

I think undisclosed sections of the I.G. Report contain damning info on Rosenstein too. Maybe he told the President during their visit yesterday that he would NOT voluntarily resign. Impeaching would be safer, from a political standpoint, than firing the guy.

I wonder how long impeachment takes? Before long, Mueller will be raiding the White House!

Gowdy, Goodlatte and Nunes have delivered the demand
to Rosenstein giving him a deadline of Monday.

Letter to Rosenstein:

House Oversight.Gov

Boom!

Either Rosenstein turns the Comey memos over or
he will be impeached or fired.

If he is impeached, he can not be pardoned in the future.
I guess it depends on what Trump knows?

In any case, its about time!!!!!

You guys are aware that impeachment is nothing more than the House of Representatives formally filing charges against the party in question right? It’s comparable to indicting someone. Impeachment doesn’t remove the individual from office. Once impeached, the Senate holds a trial. If they’re convicted, they will be removed from office or their position in the Justice Dept. in this case. If they are found not guilty of whatever charges the HoR filed, then nothing happens at that point and they go back to work. An impeachment itself doesn’t remove the party in question from their office or position.

I keep thinking to myself there is a reason that Trump has not fired Mueller beyond being in a corner. He could care less and has ALWAYS given his opponents the finger, even while in office, so there has to be a benefit to him to keep him on.

Rosenstein is done. If he was smart he would simply step down and fade away. The raid on Cohen was a strong arm tactic a politician would be afraid of but Trump? Nope. He sees right through it. They have been investigating Cohen for months and it has everything to do with trying to push Trumps hand.

Stop this bull#. Let Trump do his job and let's get on with it....

Correct. But if they can do it, even if he is not impeached, they can ALWAYS say he was. It is a f'n game and to politicians, are year in, still cannot figure it out. All they have to do is read The Art of the Deal...LOL

Are there really COMEY MEMOS describing conversations between he and President Trump? I thought that was just another instance of wishful thinking by liberal MSM nutjobs.

There is some kind of secret weapon in the Oval Office.

1. Chuck Schumer visited with Trump one-on-one in February. Since then, he's been almost reasonable.

2. Rod Rosenstein visited yesterday. This morning he's telling his friends/family that his days as AAG are numbered.

You're kidding, but it could actually be the NSA "mind control" tool that was installed in the Oval Office when Nixon was President. Bill Clinton used it, but for different purposes.

Could be. I'd bet on those strange comments of
Comey's that was Code for something.

More and more, I am seeing very dark things
woven throughout all of this.

You're referring to Loretta Lynch? She threw Comey under the bus during her NBC Lester Holt interview this past Monday. Comey says in the book that Loretta Lynch did something that the public doesn't yet know about.

Congress will have Comey come back again to testify under oath soon. Lots of new questions for the guy who makes fun of baggy eye-sacks. Put Comey in a room with Mad-Dogg and lets see if he insults General Mattis for having sacks under his eyes!

Is the vote in the Senate different for a DoJ position that the President... I ask because I believe for the President it takes 2/3 of the Senate to remove a President via the impeachment process. If it's the same 2/3 for Rosenstein then the process is a waste of time. Even if every Republican voted for it (they won't) then it still require 16 Democrats to weigh in. Impossible.
Firing is the only way to remove Rosenstein, which Trump can do whenever he wants for whatever reason he wants.

Well they can start it and if they fall short, Trump can finish it off.
