Jordan just introduced a bill to start impeachment proceedings against Rosenstein.

House conservatives are preparing a new push to oust Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to three conservative Capitol Hill sources — putting the finishing touches on an impeachment filing even as Rosenstein announced the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for interfering in the 2016 election.

Democrats contend Republicans’ fixation on Rosenstein is really an effort to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller, who reports to Rosenstein and has been making inroads in his investigation of the Russian election interference plot. Mueller’s probe has entangled members of Trump’s inner circle and Trump has increasingly assailed it as a politically motivated “witch hunt” as it’s presented greater danger to him and his allies.

Conservative sources say they could file the impeachment document as soon as Monday, as Meadows and Freedom Caucus founder Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) look to build Republican support in the House. One source cautioned, however, that the timing was still fluid.

It takes 2/3's of the Senate to remove him, which won't happen.

So, it is a stunt. Imho, a stupid stunt they'll come to regret.

Ha. Flatpointhigh started a new thread and didn't know it. OK, I moved her post to a new thread.

This is a brilliant move, by the brilliant geniuses that think they can save Trump by false attacks on everybody who threatens his treasonous ass.

Perfect timing, too. If they manage to get him impeached in the House, we'll spend weeks trying the case in the Senate. Mueller will be free to keep working, and the focus of the media, night after night after night, will be the political show trial in the Senate.

And who will be the lead prosecutor? Ted Cruz? :rotflmao:

Will Ryan even let this get to the floor?

Smells like election-year theatrics.
