The Freedom Caucus has drafted 8 articles of impeachment against Rod Rosenstein. All Republican members of the Congress are losing patience with Rosenstein not supplying even the simplest requests for information and delaying investigations. Rosenstein has promised many times to work with Congress but for the most part, it is nothing but lip service.
Rosenstein may have good reason to delay the documents since he is a possible target of the investigations considering his approval for very questionable practices and for signing off on a FISA application using false information. Once the witch hunt is over, the chances are that he will be fired, although prison should be his biggest worry.
It’s not just the Freedom Caucus that has threatened Rosenstein with impeachment. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has also threatened Rosenstein with impeachment. And for the same reason, ignoring subpoenas for information on various investigations. We have a no show AG in Jeff Sessions and a possibly corrupt Deputy AG in Rosenstein.
The Hill reported:
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.”
