According to a report by Politico, for weeks conservative lawmakers in the House of Representatives have been preparing to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein over allegations that he’s held up their investigation into FBI agents who have an alleged bias against President Trump.
On Friday Rosenstein announced charges Friday against 12 Russian intelligence officers for hacking offenses during the 2016 election. The Russians allegedly hacked into the computer networks of the DNC, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and Hillary Clinton’s the presidential campaign. Then they supposedly released stolen emails on the Internet in the months leading up to the election.
Rosenstein refuted allegations that agents in the FBI have been leaking details of the Trump/Russian investigation to reporters.
“The Internet allows foreign adversaries to attack Americans in new and unexpected ways,” Rosenstein said. “Free and fair elections are hard-fought and contentious and there will always be adversaries who work to exacerbate domestic differences and try to confuse, divide and conquer us.”
Now the Deep State operative is very likely facing impeachment. Some surmise that he has been set up by the Deep State. More on the next page:
