jim @HIS link - A group of conservative House lawmakers on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein,

 

These are the idiots.

In addition to Meadows and Jordan

Jody Hice of Georgia

Jeff Duncan of South Carolina

Andy Biggs of Arizona

Louie Gohmert of Texas

Matt Gaetz of Florida

Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee

Paul Gosar of Arizona, Bill Posey of Florida

Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.

 

Their resolution failed, and now:

 

The House left Thursday afternoon for a five-week recess.

Instead, Meadows said he had a commitment from leaders to vote on holding Rosenstein in contempt of Congress when the House returns in September if certain documents are still outstanding. The agreement came after discussions on the House floor with Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., and the No. 3 House GOP leader, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

The contempt resolution would first have to move through the Judiciary Committee, according to Republican aides.

 

It is highly unusual, if not unprecedented, for lawmakers to demand documents that are part of an ongoing criminal investigation.

There was zero chance Rosenstein would have actually been removed from office through the impeachment process. It’s not even clear an impeachment resolution would have passed the House. Even if that were to happen, a two-thirds majority in the Senate would be required to remove Rosenstein from his position — meaning at least 16 Democratic votes would be necessary, which would never happen.

 

But I just saw today on the News that Republicans are going to go after Rosenstein on a lesser charge. I can't remember what they called it - ethics charge or some sort of dereliction of duty charge.

But, I think their going on recess, so that'll have to wait.

I would personally love to this one go forward. There is a time in all our lives that red lines are crossed but eventually they do have consequences
The American public is very naive but not stupid. and eventually will start putting two and two together and react.

Conservatives back down from effort to force a vote on impeaching Rod Rosenstein

 

Trump allies in the House decided not to force a vote on impeaching Robert Mueller’s boss.

 

Hardline conservatives have backed down from a threat to imminently force a House vote on impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

 

On Wednesday night, Freedom Caucus leaders Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. The stated reason was mainly that Rosenstein allegedly wasn’t giving enough documents to Congress. But in context, the move — which wasn’t even certain to pass the House, let alone lead to Rosenstein’s removal from office — was clearly part of an effort by President Trump’s allies to attack the Justice Department and undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which Rosenstein supervises.

 

When Meadows filed the impeachment articles, only 11 of the 236 Republicans in the House were willing to sign on to them, making it unclear how much support his effort had. House

 

Oversight Committee Chair Trey Gowdy, for instance, had said earlier that he wouldn’t back the effort (“Impeach him for what?” he asked). GOP leaders were also unenthusiastic about the controversial push, which would likely divide their party.

 

However, Meadows had the opportunity to use House rules to file a “privileged motion,” which would require a vote from the full House in the next two days — effectively forcing his colleagues to take a stand on impeaching Rosenstein even though there have been no hearings on the matter and little debate about it. Republicans facing tough races in November would not have been thrilled.

 

In the end, however, Meadows decided not to carry out that threat — for now, at least. He did not file a privileged motion for impeachment, and House Republicans announced Thursday morning that they would not vote on the matter before they leave for a month-long recess.

Remember OJ Simpson and the "Slow White Bronco"?

 

A gesture that accomplished nothing in the long run.

 

This is the same - it will never get the necessary votes.

 

Just another unpatrioticm unAmerican attempt to divert attention...

 

One good thing - we now know the names of yet more frauds. liars and charlatans who care virtually nothing for the nation and instead support Putin's PupPetPotus...

Who's trying to distract from their own scandal more - Trump or Jordan?

 

Or maybe it's a GOP directive to all hands on deck, to throw as much pasta against the walls to cover up the fact that the GOP cannot govern effectively. Where's the excellent health care plan? Where's the gun legislation people have been demanding since Oct 2017? Can't even get a kid back to their parents. Refusing to prevent ANY nation from meddling in our elections.

 

This impeachment thing against Rosenstein will never get the 2/3rds Senate vote it needs. It's nothing but a distraction.
