Congress has drafted articles of impeachment for deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.
This allows the Republican-controlled House to impeach Rosenstein without having to make President Donald Trump do it, which would open him up to accusations that he’s engaging in a “Saturday Night Massacre” scenario.
Fox has learned that articles of impeachment have been drafted for Rosenstein..though not filed. It is not clear which lawmaker drafted the articles…or if they would go anywhere in cmte or on the flr

House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows said that a growing number of lawmakers want to see Rod Rosenstein impeached and replaced, after Rosenstein missed another deadline Thursday for handing over documents relating to the FBI and DOJ plot against President Donald Trump.
Meadows told Judge Jeanine that he’s set a new “a deadline of this week, we need to see the documents.”
“Rod Rosenstein can call Michael Horowitz, who has the documents, and say, Just give them to Congress. If he doesn’t do that, and you’re right he avoided the subpoena. The deadline came and went. All we got was a phone call,” Meadows said.
“There is a growing consensus of holding them in contempt of Congress, but it’s not enough to just stop there. We have to have someone who is actually willing to do the job. And if the deputy attorney general is not willing to do it, and not allow us to have our Constitutional oversight authority supported, then we’ll find someone who can,” Meadows said.
“I think that if he does not turn over the documents, that there are a growing number of us on Capitol Hill who believe that someone else needs to do the job. And what happens there is, constitutionally, we’ve got some things WE can do,” Meadows said.
Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein’s wife Lisa Barsoomian represented then-President Bill Clinton in a 1998-99 civil case in federal court.
Rod Rosenstein worked as a Whitewater prosecutor. In this role, he was in charge of the “FBI Travel Office” case, in which it was found that the Clinton White House illegally seized FBI files from White House travel office employees, including the Clintons’ travel director.
Rosenstein interrogated Hillary Clinton on January 14, 1998, and was seen as responsible for clearing her of potential charges in the case. By that time, Rosenstein had already been picked to work for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland in the Clinton administration. When he applied to the Senate to become deputy attorney general, he falsely stated the dates he worked for Starr’s team, saying he ended his employment with Starr in 1997 (before his friendly 15-minute interrogation of Hillary Clinton).
Why did he falsify his resume to the Senate? More information is coming to light.
Rosenstein’s wife Lisa Barsoomian represented Bill Clinton in the civil case Hamburg v. Clinton filed by Wyoming candidate and political activist Al Hamburg.
That lawsuit was filed on June 11, 1998, just months after Rosenstein helped Hillary Clinton beat the rap in the Travel Office case. The case was terminated on January 25, 1999.
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
