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 impeachment document makes a series of charges against Rosenstein, 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.

Is this the something BIG is about to DROP? I look forward to seeing where this impeachment charge leads.

I remember how he didn't wanna talk about what he signed off on. He knows the FISA is trash. Un-redactions coming buh-bye Rosey.

It seems Herr Jay Jay Steiner has Few Choices All of a sudden . Resign or be Impeached . He could also try and use Classified DOJ Files to Blackmail Members of the Senate and House to Avoid Prosecution . A fourth Possibility is he " Falls On His Sword " for the Good of the Country , but I doubt that Rat has the Balls to do us All a Favor and Choose that .



LET'S GO MAGA , BELIEVE ! 2018 !

Reading the list, they've got him dead to rights:


“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.

It's likely he was one of the main ones responsible for redactions and edits in IG Horowitz's report on the Clinton investigation as well.

If Rosenstein is getting impeached for not wanting to un-redact documents and things of sort;

And the President of the USA also refused to have those documents un-redacted;

Are they working together and why is only one getting impeached?

If Congress stands by this and proceeds with impeachment, based in part on the above, then it is likely near the end for the Mueller investigation.

He is being impeached, in part, for not delivering documents to Congress, who has oversight over his agency.

Openly lying to Congress and being caught at it doesn't help.

Keep up.

We don't think like him, so something must be wrong with us.

Re-Education is the only answer.
