The two pronged attack by Republicans: Happening now, and look for more of it

Just as we are moving slowly past Trump’s attempts to order eleven of his enemies (who are mostly public servants with excellent records) to be rounded up and handed over Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, we now see the House Freedom Caucus, aka Teabagging Asses, calling for the impeachment of Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation of the Trump-Russian scandal.

From the Washington Post:

Conservative lawmakers on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, in a move that marks a dramatic escalation in the battle over the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The effort, spearheaded by Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), also sets up a showdown with House Republican leaders, who have distanced themselves from calls to remove Rosenstein from office. But Meadows and Jordan stopped short of forcing an immediate vote on the measure, sparing Republican lawmakers for now from a potential dilemma.

This only gets worse. It gets worse about every three and a half days.
