This is breaking news…Republican Lawmakers Launch Move to Impeach Justice Department’s Rosenstein.

A group of Republican lawmakers on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment to remove Deputy U.S. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, escalating a fight over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Representatives Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, who belong to the conservative House Freedom Caucus, joined nine other House members in accusing Rosenstein of hiding investigative information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and other alleged misconduct.

Rosenstein, the No. 2 official at the Justice Department, has become a frequent punching bag for supporters of President Donald Trump for appointing Mueller to investigate whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton. The president has denied such collusion took place.

“The DOJ is keeping information from Congress,” Jordan said, referring to the Department of Justice. “Enough is enough. It’s time to hold Mr. Rosenstein accountable for blocking Congress’s constitutional oversight role.”

Congress’s constitutional oversight role? Give me a fuckin’ break. With all of the nonsense that has come out of the White House over the past 18 months and particularly the last sixty days…they are going after Rosenstein? They haven’t the spine of a helgramite. We’ll have to watch what happens next but this is unconscionable. Let the DOJ do its work. Let Rosenstein finish his job. Let Mueller finish his job. It doesn’t make anymore sense for Congress to meddle in the work of the DOJ than it does for the White House to do that.

For Rosenstein to be removed from office, a majority of the House must vote for the articles of impeachment and then the Senate must convict him on a two-thirds vote. Republicans control both chambers but have only a 51-49 edge in the Senate.

Just another instance of the Republicans breaking faith with the rule of law and the US Constitution.

    Oh, so these crooks want the generic ballot to go from Dem +8 to Dem +18? Because this is how you do it.

    And where the hell is Paul Ryan on this? I have to assume he is OK with it, and therefore complicit in the Trump-Russia doings.

    Go ahead and try this, you dingbats. Let’s then see Rosenstein release EVERYTHING, even if it keeps a few perp walks from happening.

    There are no “good Republicans”.

      PS- Jim Jordan should be booted out of the UW Badgers’ Hall of Fame for being such a treasonous lowlife.
