The Time Has Come House Republicans Move To Impeach Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein

Perhaps to cheer him up, Trump's closest congressional allies are stepping up their efforts to turn the tables and mess with his tormenters in the Justice Department, the intelligence agencies, and the special counsel's office. Enough is enough, ' Jordan said in a statement on Wednesday.

Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, allege in the filing that Rosenstein has failed to respond to congressional demands for documents, and Meadows tweeted: "We have had enough".

GOP lawmakers have threatened impeachment against the deputy attorney general on numerous occasions over the past few months.

Conservative members led by Reps.

A group of conservative House members, spearheaded by Meadows, drafted impeachment papers against Rosenstein in April, calling it "a last-resort option if the Department of Justice fails to respond" to congressional requests for documents pertaining to the Russian Federation investigation and another federal inquiry into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

The impeachment document makes a series of charges against Rosenstein, the latest sign of escalating efforts among conservatives to oust the DOJ's No. 2 official.

Facebook to launch its own internet satellite 'Athena' by next year
They are calling this satellite " Athena ", and the company is not saying anything much so far other than confirming it. In the 2018 messages, Facebook reps refer to a "small satellite experimental application for the Athena satellite".

The other Republicans introducing the articles of impeachment are Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona, Rep. Jody Hice of Georgia, Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida and Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee.

The Justice Department has provided lawmakers with more than 800,000 documents, but Meadows claimed after the meeting that there was still "frustration" with how Rosenstein has handled the oversight requests.

"Multiple times we've caught DOJ officials hiding information from Congress, withholding relevant documents, or even outright ignoring Congressional subpoenas-and now we have evidence that Mr. Rosenstein signed off on a document using unverified political opposition research as a cornerstone of a FISA application to spy on an American citizen working for the Trump campaign", he said.

Leaders of the Democratic party immediately condemned the action taken towards impeachment of Rosenstein.

Democrats have argued the focus on Rosenstein is an attempt to broadly undermine the Mueller investigation.
