Trump's GOP henchmen prep response to new Russian indictments—impeaching Rod Rosenstein

At the very moment Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was announcing the indictments of 12 Russian military officers for interfering in the 2016 elections, key House Republicans were busy plotting his impeachment. Politico writes:

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, in fact, had the impeachment document on the floor of the House at the very moment that Rosenstein spoke to reporters and TV cameras Friday.

Conservative sources tell Politico the impeachment filing could happen by Monday. But the timing depends on Meadows and fellow Freedom Caucus member Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, who are shopping around the effort to build momentum for the push. 

The showdown between Trump’s henchmen in the House and Rosenstein has been brewing for months, with a handful of House Republicans accusing the Justice Department of insufficiently responding to their ceaseless requests for documents on the ongoing Russia investigation. By any objective measure, the FBI and Justice Department have already provided an “unprecedented” amount of access to an ongoing criminal investigation.

No word yet on the coordinated GOP effort to protect the upcoming U.S. elections from more Russian interference this fall.
