Like you just couldn’t see this one coming from a mile away….
Following the announcement that several members of the Republican House Freedom Congress were at the end of their patience when it comes to the lying and conniving machinations of de facto attorney general Rod Rosenstein and would impeach the bastard, his defenders immediately began to circle the wagons around him.
And lo and behold, the Beltway golden boy and outgoing Speaker Of The House Paul Ryan is leading the efforts to ensure that Rosenstein and the corrupt coup plotters at DOJ/FBI will be able to continue to wind the clock down by stonewalling in the hopes that the Dems regain control in November and all of the investigations into Deep State chicanery will be shut down.
Congressmen Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan made the announcement that they were prepared to impeach Rosenstein with Jordan also revealing that he was ready to challenge Ryan for the Speaker’s gavel.
But the man who has always been a conniving bought and paid for, backstabbing, anti-Trump weasel responded much as anyone who has been watching this slickster would expect.
Saint Paul is prepared to join with Democrats and to erect an impenetrable firewall around Rosenstein and his unaccountable witch hunter Robert “Bob” Mueller.
Via Politico, “Ryan rejects conservative push to impeach Rosenstein”:
Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday firmly rejected an effort by House conservatives to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, putting him at odds with hard-liners in his party and even some in his own leadership team.
But it’s unclear how long he can keep them at bay.
Just minutes after the Wisconsin Republican told reporters that he did not think Rosenstein’s actions merited his removal from office, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said Ryan had agreed to a different deal: Conservatives would give the Justice Department “one last chance” in August to turn over a range of documents that lawmakers subpoenaed in March or else Rosenstein could face charges of contempt of Congress.
“The speaker is willing to support [House Judiciary Committee] Chairman [Bob] Goodlatte in a contempt process if the agreed upon documents are not delivered,” said Meadows, a top ally of President Donald Trump.
Moving forward with contempt proceedings would escalate the clash between Congress and DOJ and potentially become a court battle over Capitol Hill’s access to Executive Branch documents.
The agreement, negotiated on the House floor Thursday morning, highlights how Ryan has attempted to balance the aggressive demands of Trump allies without undermining the ongoing investigations of the Justice Department or Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election including potential collusion with the Trump campaign.
Meadows and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), top House conservatives, introduced articles of impeachment late Wednesday that accused Rosenstein of obstructing their demands to access sensitive documents connected to Mueller’s investigation and other FBI records.
But Ryan told reporters Thursday that the Department of Justice was largely complying with demands for documents that were the subject of two subpoenas earlier this year.
So there you have it! Ryan firmly stands with the Democrats but for a guy who has managed to become a player by worming his way into the good graces of the pricks who really run this country, he is a made man and will find a very nice and lucrative spot waiting for him once he leaves Congress.
As for the patriotic members who are fighting for the truth, they will have to navigate legions of corrupt backstabbers, the media and an entire rotten system that is stacked against the American people to hold the slimy swamp creature Rosenstein accountable.
