Rod Rosenstein

Conservative Congressman have filed documents to impeach Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia's collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

The lawmakers on Wednesday introduced a resolution to impeach Rosenstein for withholding documents that would prove the entire Russia collusion investigation is a ruse to unseat a duly elected president.

Impeaching Rosenstein would effectively end Mueller's investigation. Republican lawmakers have long complained that Rosenstein continuously refuses to turn over requested documents.

"We're tired of the Justice Department giving us the finger and not giving us the information we're entitled to to do our constitutional duty," said House Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) in a Fox News appearance on Wednesday. "More importantly, the American people are sick of it. That's why we filed the resolution."

Jordan, along with N.C. Rep. Mark Meadows, spearheaded the effort to impeach Rosenstein with other House Republicans.

"it was very important for those of us who believe that norms have been violated to step out and say Rod Rosenstein needs to be impeached."

Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) applauded the effort to impeach Rosenstein during an appearance on the FOX Business Network Wednesday night.

"The mountain of evidence against Rod Rosenstein is very compelling when you look at the extent to which documents and witnesses have been withheld," said Gaetz.

Republican lawmakers face pushback from House Democrats who say the Republicans' resolution is a "direct attack" on Mueller's probe.

In a joint statement on Wednesday, House Democrats said: "Any attempt to [file impeachment papers against Rosenstein] will be viewed by Congress and the American people as further proof of an effort to obstruct justice with severe consequences for Trump and his presidency."

But Jordan and Meadows filed the resolution to impeach Rosenstein hours later. The resolution sets up a public showdown between the House Republicans who outnumber the House Democrats.

Democrats hope to take back the House during the upcoming midterm elections in November.

    Trump's congressional toadies want the unredacted information so they can pass it on to the White House so they will know what the FBI has on them.

    They are so effing transparent.

  • Pitty Patty

    Only 9 Republicans signed the resolution. This won't get very far.

  • Roderick2011

    So they know that after Manafort is convicted is when Mueller is going to let the hammer down with his indictments?

    Bring it on!!!

  • Mo Mobetta

    Lol what? Smdh I can tell a lot of yawl don’t follow the truth cause a lot of your comments are baseless and senseless it just goes to show hate spreads like wildfire

  • Trace da Ace

    hmmm....where in my post did you see "hate"??? No, I do not agree with alot of what Dump does says or does....but again ..that is MY just copied and agreed with the write up......CALM DOWN.

  • Mo Mobetta

    Little do you know Rosenstein has been sitting on information for the committee who’s monitoring this investigation requested and they went as far as requesting Trump order he release the documents cause he has the constitutional authority to order Rosenstein to do so.. But Trump hasn’t responded to the committees request I’m guessing it has to do with the fact he doesn’t want to hear yawl bih about it and prefers Rosenstein just do the right thing..

  • Logan Roberts

    I'm so sick of this shyt here, I want to see some handcuffs & indictments....

    She has sideline been one. She spoke out about Oscars So White and she also was one of the first white stars to realize Lemonade was not about a drink, but a speech in power of police brutality and other black topics.

  • Phillybruh

    Ask your president

  • Phillybruh

    That was in the write up

  • Roderick2011

    So you think its the right thing to release details of an ongoing investigation so someone on the committee can warn people who are being investigated before they are indicted?

    And no Trump doesn't have the constitutional authority to order Rosenstein to do anything.

    It's called separations of powers.

    I take it you believe that Trump is a GD dictator.

  • Roderick2011

    It's taking so long because there are so many people who are involved.

    Besides it would be over sooner if Trump would submit to an interview by Mueller instead of Giuliani playing games, but Trump is trying to run out the clock so that Mueller won't be able to release anything until after the midterms in November.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm pretty sure Mo Mobetta is yt troll.

  • Jethro

    This Congress is weak as fuck.

  • Mo Mobetta

    Lol what.. they’ve already openly exposed who they are going to indict in Russia but no one here in America indicted so far have been indicted for Russian collusion or anything to do with Russia.. bwahahaha and on top of that I am correct he does have that authority and power to do so when a government official is in contempt or court by holding such evidence. And it has nothing to Do with being a dictator.. I know all about how the system works and I’m over here laughing, holding back tears reading your statement and appalled at the same time.. But it’s really no surprise I’ve seen a lot of people like you go around and speak on things you apparently know nothing about.. I had the slight urge to school you but it’s now facts into Days world you can’t educate a fool especially one who can learn the answer at
    The click of a button..
    I never thought I’d live in a world where all this knowledge is at our fingertips and people choose to Be this dumb..

    It's funny that you think that Mueller's investigation is over and he won't indict any Americans since he has already indicted Manafort and people like Gates and Flynn have been offered plea deals to testify against Manafort.
    Now Mueller is looking into organizations like the NRA and how it was the conduit to funnel money from Russians into the Trump campaign.
    If you think you're so smart then school me on how Trump can view evidence in an ongoing investigation why doesn't he just do it and not use Congress to do his dirty work?
    It's so funny that you're too stupid to ask the question if there's nothing to see why is Trump so concerned about the FBI's investigation into Russia and what Mueller has found what on whom?
    You're contradicting yourself big time and so it Trump.
    Good night.

  • Shawty

    Wish they just impeach All those mofo's.

  • TruthIs

    they don't want to end the investigation - they want to see the proof and the details of the investigation. If they are not produced, they should stop bringing up accusations.

  • WhoKnew

    Hey, there's a movie that just opened today that spells it out for me.

  • hottlanta

    Dump financial guru just got supeoned. They aint playing.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    It was all fine and dandy when he helped fire Comey, I hope they can't but won't feel sorry for him if they succeed...I need Congress or somebody to grow a set of balls tho...

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    This sucks and stinks. November can't get here fast enough. We have a joke of a Congress....all of them are jokers.

  • nick c

    Rosenstein works for the AG the AG works for the president, Rosenstein falls under the executive branch.

  • Roderick2011


    That doesn't mean that the president has the right to view evidence/ information from an ongoing investigation.

    If Trump wants to fire Rosenstein he can but he knows if he fires Rosenstein it will have negative political consequences and the Senate would give him a hard time when he nominates Rosenstein's replacement.

    Your girl Monique is all over defending Roseanne and saying she isn't racist.
