Congress is about to drive a dagger through the Deep State’s heart

Congress’s showdown with the deep state is building to a conclusion.

The top Deep State agent in the Department of Justice has spent months flouting members of Congress exercising their oversight role.

And now Congress is about to respond by driving a dagger through the heart of the Deep State.

Conservatives in Congress are fed up with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein slow walking their document requests.


Critics accuse Rosenstein of a massive cover up to conceal the true nature of the Russia investigation.

And now Conservatives are prepared to hit back.

Republicans in the House are prepared to introduce articles of impeachment against Rosenstein as soon as Monday.

Politco reports:

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 has not been filed today,” was all Meadows spokesman Ben Williamson would say. Williamson declined to rule out whether Meadows intended to file the document next week.

Republicans could also try to hold Rosenstein in contempt of Congress, if they want to go a step before impeachment.

Rosenstein has thumbed his nose at Congress for too long.

The Deputy Attorney General has compared Congress exercising their oversight authority to “extortion.”


And that has allowed him to stonewall Congressional investigations into the corruption and bias that has tainted the Mueller probe.

President Trump has pledged to stay out of Justice Department affairs during the Mueller investigation.

But that doesn’t mean Republicans have to sit silently by while Robert Mueller conducts a political fishing expedition to undermine the President of the United States.
