Congress drew up articles of impeachment and one Trump official was floored

Congress is finally moving on impeachment.

After months of speculation, members of Congress have hit their limit.

And this Trump official was floored when he found out.

Members of the House Freedom Caucus are fed up with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

He’s slow walked their document requests and sat idly by while Robert Mueller has run roughshod over his mandate.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows told the Washington Post that articles of impeachment was just a last resort.

The Post reports:

“The document, which was obtained by The Washington Post, underscores the growing chasm between congressional Republican leaders, who have maintained for months that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III should be allowed to proceed, and rank-and-file GOP lawmakers who have repeatedly battled the Justice Department during the past year.

The draft articles, which one of its authors called a “last resort,” would be unlikely to garner significant support in Congress. But the document could serve as a provocative political weapon for conservatives in their standoff with Mueller and the Justice Department.

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus — led by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), a Trump confidant — finalized the draft in recent days. It came after weeks of disputes with Rosenstein over the Justice Department’s response to congressional requests for documents about the decisions and behavior of federal law enforcement officials working on the Russia investigation and other federal probes, including the investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s email server.”

Rosenstein reacted by ranting during an appearance at the Newseum that he would not “be extorted.”

NBC reports:

“They can’t resist even leaking their own drafts,” Rosenstein said of the Republican lawmakers’ impeachment articles, which were first obtained by the Washington Post. “I just don’t have anything to say about documents like that that nobody has the courage to put their name on and they leak in that way.”

Congress isn’t “extorting” Rosenstein; they are exercising their oversight authority as laid out in the Constitution.

    I still believe Mueller Inc. are in it for the $$$$$ and their personal vendetta against Trump. They are really Pi**ed at the people who voted for Trump but dare not say anything for fear of losing another election.
