4:05 PM ET – Sara Carter, Fox News Contributor and Investigative Reporter and David Schoen, Civil Liberties Attorney, walk through the recommendation by House Freedom Caucus members to impeach Rod Rosenstein. Additionally, they talk about Robert Mueller’s inclusion of the President’s tweets in his investigation, that seems to have no end. From last night’s press release via the Freedom Caucus:
Today, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), along with 9 cosponsors, introduced Articles of Impeachment against Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein.
The impeachment articles come as evidence continues to mount regarding the Department of Justice’s problematic decision-making during the 2016 campaign and conduct surrounding the transition to President Trump’s administration in 2017. The impeachment articles are the result of nearly 9 months of unsuccessful Congressional attempts to force the Department of Justice (DOJ) to comply with oversight requests.
The failures cited within the articles include intentionally withholding embarrassing documents and information, knowingly hiding material investigative information from Congress, various abuses of the FISA process, and failure to comply with Congressional subpoenas, among others.
5:05 PM ET – Jonathan Gilliam, author of the newly released book, Sheep No More, and Danielle McLaughlin, an Attorney & Constitutional Expert who co-wrote The Federalist Society: How Conservatives took the Law Back from Liberals cover the news of the week. They discuss the news of the week, not the least of which is the inability of Rachel Maddow to admit she was wrong, Cory Booker telling his constituents to get in the face of Congressional lawmakers, and Mueller deciding to widen the scope of his investigation to include the President’s tweets.
New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker told an audience to “get up in the face of some congresspeople” while speaking at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness in Washington, D.C., Wednesday.
“Before I end, that’s my call to action here,” Booker said. “Please don’t just come here today and then go home. Go to the Hill today and get up in the face of some congresspeople.” (h/t The Daily Caller)
5:30 PM ET – Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, of California, discusses, the complete disregard for our rights as private citizens is being put to the test. The way that the intel agencies of this nation surveilled a private citizen, Carter Page, is just proof of what the shadow government has been doing since their candidate became the 2nd place runner up. The path of revenge seems to see no end beyond removing a duly elected president. Rohrabacher also talks about his support for the President and his position on the Russia Summit.
The media has also focused on the Russia investigation in covering Rohrabacher’s re-election effort. On Friday, Rohrabacher toured a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center and reportedly invited reporters to ask him questions when reporters questioned him about his connection to Russia.
“You should be ashamed of yourself for bringing that up when we just talked about something really important,” Rohrabacher told reporters, and then proceeded to tell them that he had already conducted “hundreds of interviews on the issue of Russia.” (h/t Breitbart)
