(RNN) – Articles of impeachment have been filed against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

GOP lawmakers have threatened impeachment against the deputy attorney general on numerous occasions over the past few months. 

They have expressed anger with what they say is Rosenstein’s lack of cooperation in providing documents related to the Russia investigation to Congress.

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

 

 

At a Congressional hearing last month, Rosenstein responded to charges by Jordan that he was “hiding information from Congress.”

“Your use of this to attack me personally is deeply wrong,” Rosenstein said. “When you find some problem with the production or with questions, it doesn’t mean that I’m personally trying to conceal something from you.”

Wednesday’s resolution had nine cosponsors, though notably not conservative House leadership such as Trey Gowdy, chair of the Oversight Committee, and Bob Goodlatte, chair of the Judiciary Committee.

Lawmakers will soon leave Washington for a recess, meaning no vote would be imminent – if the resolution made its way through procedural hurdles to a vote.

Actually impeaching Rosenstein faces a high bar. It would require a vote in favor from a majority of the House and two-thirds of the Senate.

Rosenstein is the top Justice Department official overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller and the Russia investigation, after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the probe last year. 

Meadows said under Rosenstein’s direction “the agency has made every effort to obstruct legitimate attempts of Congressional oversight.

 

 

The Hillreported:

The articles include allegations that Rosenstein violated federal law by refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena over Congress’s efforts to obtain documents about FBI surveillance during the election, intentionally stalling document production for congressional investigations into possible government misconduct and failing to enforce key laws and protocols.

“[Rosenstein] failed to act on the behalf of the Attorney General by properly supervising the administration of [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] by failing to demonstrate probable cause to believe that targets of surveillance were a foreign power or agents of a foreign power, that a significant purpose of the surveillance was to obtain foreign intelligence information, and that appropriate minimization procedures were in place,” according to the third charge.

Count five charges Rosenstein of “knowingly provided misleading statements related to his supervision of the initial Department of Justice investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged contacts with Russia when he testified under oath before Congress on December 13, 2017, that any involvement FBI attorney Bruce Ohr had in the Russian investigation was without his knowledge.”

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), chairman of the Freedom Caucus and a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, confirmed the impeachment document in the Washington Postreport:

Meadows acknowledged the draft in an interview Monday, calling the one-page document “a last resort option, if the Department of Justice fails to respond” to his requests for more information.

“My frustrations about their inability to respond to simple requests could warrant further action,” Meadows said, adding that many of his colleagues are nearing a breaking point with Rosenstein.

The Freedom Caucus, which counts a few dozen House Republicans as members, is one of the more influential blocs in Congress because of its ability to drive debates to the right inside the House and Meadows’s close relationship with the president.

But the Freedom Caucus members are not the only Republicans frustrated with the Department of Justice and in particular, Rosenstein – who gained control of the Mueller investigation after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any probe that involved Russian meddling because of his involvement with President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) threatened a Rosenstein impeachment over a lack of cooperation in his committee’s probe about the DOJ’s investigation into the Trump presidential campaign.

But the Post reported that Nunes and the other House committees that have been battling the DOJ had reached agreements with the agency.

“Similarly, the Justice Department came to an agreement in recent weeks with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who had been seeking documents on the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server and the firing of Andrew McCabe as deputy FBI director, among other things,” the Post reported.

Rosenstein responded to the Freedom Caucus’s impeachment draft in remarks made at a Law Day event at the Newseum in Washington, DC, on Tuesday after a reporter asked him about the development.

Rosenstein said the caucus leaked the one-page document to the press and said he would not be distracted from his job by what he called a “threat,”

Meadows, however, blames the tension between Congress on the DOJ and Rosenstein.

“The Department of Justice’s willingness to comply with legitimate requests are more lip service than actual actions,” Meadows said on Monday, according to the Post. (Source-Breitbart)

  1. Rule of Law says:

    This action is much too slow. These corrupt DOJ, FBI, IRS and SESople need to be caught and punished – but who will do the arrests?

    Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?
    Lois Lerner.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

    Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?
    None other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?
    I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.

    What do all four casting characters have in common?
    They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

    Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

    Ok, let’s chalk the last one up to mere chance.
    Let’s fast forward to 2009.

    James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

    Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

    The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

    Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to none other than, the Russians.

    Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t. The American people got absolutely nothing out of it.

    However, prior to the sales approval, none other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid $500k for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

    OK, no big deal, right?

    Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside this money laundering and bribery scheme.

    Guess who was the FBI Director during this timeframe?

    Yep, Robert Mueller.

    Mueller even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

    Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.

    None other than, yup, Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess what happened to the informant?

    The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

    How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

    Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

    145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

    Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

    None other than, you got it. Lois Lerner.

    OK, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

    Let’s fast forward to 2015.

    Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

    He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

    He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

    Sparing you the State Departments cover-up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this… they (the swamp rats) did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

    Now, this is amazing. Guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

    Guess who secured 17 no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six-million-dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.

    None other than our pal, James Comey.

    Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

    Now Comey, of course, is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” (after, of course, his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and, of course, exonerates her).

    Nope couldn’t find any crimes there.

    Can you guess what happened next?

    In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

    They (FBI) didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

    Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton laughs as she celebrates with her husband, former President Bill Clinton at her caucus night rally in Des Moines, Iowa February 1, 2016.

    Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” H
    Comey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

    Can you see the pattern?

    It goes on and on:
    1. Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General,
    2. Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein,
    3. Comey leaks government information to the press,
    4. Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

    FISA abuse, political espionage…. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others were deeply involved in it.

    • All the same players.
    • All compromised and conflicted.
    • All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.
    • All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.

    They are like battery acid. They corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

    How many lives have these two Clintons destroyed?

    As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

    Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.
