A little over a week ago, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein again defied Congress and refused to hand over evidence that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign.
Conservatives in Congress brought a resolution condemning Rosenstein. Their resolution would have initiated the Contempt of Congress and impeachment processes.
At the last minute, Paul Ryan stepped in and demanded that Conservatives give the Deep State more time to comply. Ryan ordered that the resolution include a provision that gave Rosenstein one more week to hand over the documents. If he didn't comply by July 6, then Ryan would allow impeachment to move forward.
Tomorrow is the deadline and Rosenstein hasn't complied at all. In fact, he's doubled down by saying that Congress will never receive the documents they've subpoenaed.
Time's up. But now the House and Senate leadership are asking for Congress to give these Deep State traitors even more time.
Rod Rosenstein is the man who is in charge of the Mueller investigation aka the Trump-Russia witch hunt.
Rosenstein is supposed to be making sure that Mueller doesn't jump the rails. Yet today, we're learning that Robert Mueller — unable to prove collusion or obstruction — is now investigating… the National Rifle Association. Why? Because a Russian oligarch got a lifetime membership a few years ago. This has gotten completely out of control.
Now, Rosenstein's top aide — Scott Schools — is resigning. Schools was helping Rosenstein "oversee" the Mueller probe. He sees that the writing is on the wall and is resigning before Rosenstein is forced out.
But now establishment Republicans are mobilizing to stop that from happening.
A week ago, Congress voted 226-183 demanding that Rosenstein hand over all of the subpoenaed records or else face contempt and impeachment votes. Now, the GOP is saying they've already done everything necessary and that there's no need to follow through with the threat.
I want to make sure we talk about what is actually going on. The Obama administration was caught spying on the Donald Trump campaign and using actually intelligence assets to infiltrate the campaign to funnel back information. Not only that, but reports indicate this surveillance happened before the investigation officially began. That is a big deal.
Congress has subpoenaed these documents. Executive branch oversight is literally one of Congress' constitutional duties and they have the legal authority to subpoena these records.
Rod Rosenstein has flat-out refused to turn them over. He broke the law.
Luckily, the Founders planned for this. They knew that one day, executive branch officials would break the law. That is why the Founders gave Congress the power to hold these criminals in Contempt of Congress and have them impeached!
But now that we are so close, Paul Ryan wants to shut it down.
Don't let Rosenstein and the rest of the Deep State get away with this!
We couldn't have gotten this far without you. You pressured Congress to hold these Deep Staters accountable and you were able to force them to pass last week's resolution.
Now it is time to force them to finish this!
Rod Rosenstein's crime are evident. He has defied Congressional subpoenas and refused to surrender documents. He was given an additional week to comply, and he again refused.
Kick him out,
