Report: House Conservatives Lay Groundwork For Rosenstein Impeachment


An impeachment document to remove Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein could be filed as soon as Monday, three conservative Capitol Hill sources have told Politico.

Politico reports that House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows had the impeachment document on the House floor even while Rosenstein was speaking to reporters Friday about the indictments of Russian intelligence officers for alleged 2016 election interference.

Politico’s sources caution that the timing is “still fluid.”

“It has not been filed today,” Meadows spokesman Ben Williamson told Politico, but didn’t rule out that the document could be filed at some point next week as Meadows and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan try to build Republican support.

Rosenstein, who is supervising the Mueller investigation because of the recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has long been the focus of intense criticism by Republicans frustrated by his handling of both the Russia investigation as well as his reluctance to turn over information related to FBI agent bias against President Trump.  read more

  1. From my post below.

    “Conservative lawmakers in the House are preparing to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Politico reported Friday.

    Sources told the publication that conservatives have been preparing to have Rosenstein impeached for weeks over allegations that he’s held up their investigation into FBI agents who some lawmakers say are biased against President Trump.

    House Freedom Caucus leaders Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) are leading the effort, and the impeachment document could be filed as soon as Monday, according to Politico.

    Ben Williamson, a spokesman for Meadows, declined to rule out if it would be filed next week, Politico reported.”

    Yes, or take the alternate punishment and wrestle Jim Jordan Mr. Finger wagger. Jordan WILL bring the pain.

  2. This might be interesting in that Sessions has said he’d quit if Rosenstein were axed.

    How about Jordan for Attorney General? Talk about interesting…

  3. My take is this. We have so many directions to go, to take this to the enemy that we can’t help but win. All we lack is for someone to pull the trigger and yell charge. My biggest fear is that we believe we are winning, but we don’t have the enemy thoroughly beaten before the mid-terms and then by hook or by crook the libs pull out the house or senate. There is no excuse for that to happen other than lack of initiative on our part. LET’S ROLL, DAMMIT!!

  4. My only question is: what stage of the kabuki will Trump use as an excuse to declassify the required documents? The suspense is killing me!

    Your best post ever in my opinion. A bazillion TO’s. We are not winning yet. You do not celebrate until your enemy is no longer breathing. And quite honestly they continue to poke the Tiger. Maybe Q, and Trump, are depending on us. I think that’s where it’s going.

  6. If rosenstein gets axed, and sessions quits in protest all we need to do is call a taxi, put them both in it, and take them home. No loss, easy peasy.

  7. POTUS Trump has the legal authority to make all their millions of pages of testimony and investigation findings, etc. public. Wouldn’t that be a kick in the head?

    No matter what, I think we need to lose Sessions and Rosenstein and Wray. Trump was seriously misled, and he won’t be making that mistake again any time soon.

  8. @Bad_Brad – It turns out Jordan got his J.D. at Capital University Law School in Columbus OH in 2001, but I don’t see anywhere that he’s a member of the bar much less has ever been a practicing lawyer.

    Two time all American wrestler, two time National Champion, Jordan will rely more on his mat experience than anything he learned in school. One very confident individual. A Patriot. A bad ass. We need, NEED this guy as speaker. Can you imagine him a Trump working together? Some scary shit indeed.

  10. Brad, well there certainly are a bunch us frustrated as hell that we aren’t burying the enemy yet. What the hell is holding us back? Sessions? Soros? Clintons? The Swamp? SES? FBI? DOJ? There are so many bad guys we can shoot in any direction and hit a worthwhile target.

    Q says July is the month. Everything happens in July. He’s got 17 days left. If nothing happens in July I will increase my ammo supplies and never listen to or entertain another thing Q types.

  12. joe6pak, Ya know what your problem is pal, you’re a business man. Me Too. Fuck it, let’s get it on. LOL.
    I’m actually not kidding one bit. We need to start recruiting.

  13. Bush Republicans out number conservatives by a large #. Rod know this. That GWB’s girl Lois Lerner did not go to jail 5 years ago is proof positive!

    All talk! FAKE

  14. “How does a little fucking Poindexter weeny grow this powerful?”

    By studying the rules of the game while others are busy screwing, snooping and leaking?
