The 11 conservatives who introduced the articles of impeachment on Wednesday represent a small but influential faction of the 236-member GOP majority. Even when the released documents reveal that the investigation is credible and above board, the president's defenders distort and lie about their contents to push the narrative that Mueller is on a "witch hunt". Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), along with nine co-sponsors, introduced the articles shortly after a meeting with DOJ officials concerning document production.
The House is scheduled to leave on Thursday on a recess that extends until the first week of September. House leadership has not signed on to the resolution.
"The DOJ is keeping information from Congress".
Meadows, Jordan, House intelligence committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes and other Republicans want documents from the Justice Department related to the use of confidential sources and other aspects of the early stage of the FBI's counterintelligence investigation into Russia's attack on the 2016 election. Republican congressmember and Freedom Caucus chair Mark Meadows says he will instead seek to charge Rosenstein with contempt of Congress if he doesn't turn over documents Meadows is seeking.
The resolution also goes directly after Rosenstein for his role in the ongoing Mueller investigation, criticizing him for refusing to produce a memo that outlines the scope of that investigation and questioning whether the investigation was started on legitimate grounds.
Rosenstein oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
Malcom targeted by Barcelona despite agreement with Roma
Barcelona praised him as a "daring, pacey forward with an ability to shoot from distance" who has "a great future ahead of him". Malcom was reportedly ready to board a flight to Rome on Monday, before Barcelona hijacked his deal at the 11 hour.
The officials said the only document the department won't make available to lawmakers is an unredacted version of a memorandum from Rosenstein to Mueller authorizing specific activities once he took over the Russian Federation investigation. Still, some GOP lawmakers said they would draw the line at impeachment.
"There is absolutely no basis to impeach Rod Rosenstein". House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy said after the meeting that he was pleased with the department's efforts and wouldn't support Rosenstein's impeachment. While we have acted in good faith and given DAG Rosenstein every opportunity to comply with Congressional requests, he has evaded our attempts to conduct oversight time and time again. Recently, Meadows joined with Rep. Jim Jordan of OH, asking the Department of Justice's internal watchdog to look into accusations of Roseinstein threatening House staffers.
"It's an uptick in their fabulously irresponsible effort to damage the critical institutions of this country in favor of defending the president", Himes, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said.
Meadows heads the conservative Freedom Caucus and has sparred with Ryan on issues such as immigration and federal spending. And if you argue that he needs the impeachment resolution as "cover", then that means it has to come to a vote, and I don't think that's going to happen.
The Justice Department has already handed over about 880,000 documents to Congress, but Meadows and his conservative allies are seeking more.
