Republicans Begin Impeachment Proceedings Against Rosenstein As Promised

Wednesday Evening Mark Meadows tweeted the big news:

A group of conservative House lawmakers on Wednesdayintroduced 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 introduction of the resolution is 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. –The Hill

Meadows, head of the House Freedom Caucus, made an official statement,”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…”

Jim Jordan had some choice words as well, “The DOJ is keeping information from Congress. Enough is enough. It’s time to hold Mr. Rosenstein accountable for blocking Congress’s constitutional oversight role…”

The announcement comes after several weeks without progress by investigators.

Rosenstein and the DOJ have been accused of “slow walking” related documents. Lawmakers claim they’ve been given the runaround – while Rosenstein and the rest of the Department of Justice have maintained that handing over requested documents would compromise ongoing investigations.

Perhaps no one summarizes the frustration more than Trey Gowdy, who resolutely told Rosenstein, “Whatever you’ve got, finish it the hell up.”

The Republicans promised they would impeach Rosenstein. Now we wait to see where it leads.

Is this just more theatrics?

The American people have grown very weary of that.
