Congress has finally had enough of Rod Rosenstein’s games.
After months of having him refusing to turn over documents to Congress, Rosenstein now has a date of July 6, 2018, on the docket to comply or face impeachment.
Turn Them Over
For some reason, Rosenstein is refusing to hand over documentation to Congress in both the Russia collusion investigation and the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Congressional members of the House Oversight Committee want answers.
Unfortunately, they need those documents in order to get them.
Since Rosenstein has been uncooperative, House members are about to give him an option: turn over the documentation or be impeached.
Measure on the Floor
To show they are serious, members of Congress are going to vote on a measure to impeach Rosenstein.
According to Rep. Mark Meadows, that measure is up for a vote this week.
“I think indeed if all of the documents are not complied with by July 6, providing we vote on that resolution tomorrow, which I believe we do, the speaker, as indicated, we will vote on the House floor tomorrow on that resolution,” Meadows said.
“If they’re not here by July 6, then certainly contempt and impeachment will be in order,” Meadows added.
It’s About Time
For far too long, congressional subpoenas have been treated like nothing more than requests by the Justice Department.
In fact, the long-standing frustration on this very matter is one of the reasons Rep. Trey Gowdy is leaving office.
Earlier this year, Gowdy went public with how useless he actually thinks these congressional hearings really are, simply because they are rarely capable of getting all relevant facts for their investigations.
Hopefully, Meadows is true to his word, and Rosenstein is staring down the barrel of an impeachment hearing if he doesn’t turn over the documentation to Congress.
