More impeachment threats on Rosenstein

The HillRep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Monday threatened to bring articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if he won't testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee.

Gaetz said on Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" that Rosenstein needs to testify regarding the bombshell New York Times report that he allegedly discussed wearing a wire to record President Trump.

Gaetz said that he and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) are prepared to bring impeachment articles against Rosenstein if committee leadership won't force him to testify.

The Senate will never vote to remove Rosenstein. The only use impeachment has is to put a historical black mark on his record (which he richly deserves) and to give Trump an official reason to fire him (which, politically, should probably wait until after the election... and in any case, McCabe's memos gave Trump more than enough reason to fire Rosenstein).

Still, keeping the pressure on is a good idea.
