Three weeks ago, House Judiciary Chairman Trey Gowdy ripped into Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein during his appearance before the committee where House members grilled Rosenstein over the surveillance of the Trump campaign and the damning Judicial Watch report on the conduct of the FBI during Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.

During the House Judiciary Committee hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Republican Trey Gowdy spoke out on behalf of most of America…demanding that Mueller wraps up his investigation, or as Gowdy said, “finish it the hell up”. Gowdy warned, that the investigation, which has to date, proved no wrongdoing by President Trump and has provided no evidence of campaign collusion with Russians in the 2016 election, is literally tearing our nation apart.

Watch:

Yesterday, during a press conference, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 12 Russian intelligence officials have been indicted in relation to the 2016 DNC hack.

The indictment amounted to the clearest allegation yet of Russian meddling in the election, blaming Moscow for the email hacking scandal that rocked the 2016 race by revealing embarrassing and politically damaging discussions by major Democrats. The charges swiftly fueled calls from Democratic lawmakers for Trump to cancel his Putin summit.

Of the 12 defendants, 11 are charged with conspiracy to commit computer crimes, eight counts of aggravated identity theft and conspiracy to launder money. Another is charged with a separate conspiracy to commit computer crimes.

Now, this…

The Hill is reporting that conservative lawmakers in the House are preparing to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Politico reported Friday.

Sources told the publication that conservatives have been preparing to have Rosenstein impeached for weeks over allegations that he’s held up their investigation into FBI agents who some lawmakers say are biased against President Trump.

House Freedom Caucus leaders Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) are leading the effort, and the impeachment document could be filed as soon as Monday, according to Politico.

Congressman Meadows hasn’t made any secret of his disdain for the lack of efficiency and foot-dragging by the DOJ, as it relates to providing Congress with the requested documents related to the investigations.

In 3 separate tweets, Meadows hammers the DOJ:

After the DOJ has spent months making every effort to obstruct Congressional investigations, Peter Strzok spent much of today’s hearing refusing to answer the most substantive questions about what went on at the FBI. Why am I not surprised?

Remarkably, we learned new information today suggesting the DOJ had not notified Lisa Page of Congress’ outstanding interview requests for over 7 months now. The DOJ/FBI appear to be continuing their efforts to keep material facts, and perhaps even witnesses, from Congress.

It’s still remarkable that we have evidence of Peter Strzok, in writing, saying “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President—while he was on the FBI team investigating the Trump campaign. The concerns are too many to count, and he’s done little to nothing to answer for them.

Ben Williamson, a spokesman for Meadows, declined to rule out if it would be filed next week, Politico reported.

The news comes the same day that Rosenstein announced charges against 12 Russian intelligence officials for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee.

Rosenstein has long been a target for Republicans who are frustrated over special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into election meddling by Russia and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign. He is overseeing the probe after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, and some argue that he’s the only person with the legal authority to fire Mueller.
