Trey Gowdy Almost To Trump-Russia Breaking Point. Almost.
The House Freedom Caucus is at it again, and this time they're taking aim at fellow Republican Rod Rosenstein. Politico reported Friday that Mark Meadows (R-Cackalacky) and Jim Jordan (R-Coverup) are ginning up support to impeach the deputy attorney general. See, Rosenstein is in BIG TROUBLE MISTER for refusing to turning over all the DOJ's confidential source material on the Russia investigation so that the GOP treason weasels can selectively leak it to their pals at Fox.
Rod Rosenstein does not have time for this shit -- he's busy right now indicting all those Russian military officials for hacking our election!
Here he is getting a fit of the giggles when the GOP fuckwits tried this nonsense two months ago.

I can tell you there have been people who have been making threats privately and publicly against me for quite some time, and I think they should understand by now, the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted. We're going to do what's required by the rule of law, and any kind of threats that anybody makes are not gonna affect the way we do our job. We have a responsibility, and we take an oath. That's the whole point.
Apparently, Jordan and Meadows failed to learn their lesson two months ago, and maybe even as we type they're introducing articles of impeachment against Rod Rosenstein for the HIGH CRIME of trying to protect FBI sources. But Meadows hopes to succeed Paul Ryan (as minority leader, we guess), and Jim Jordan is in a wee spot of bother, what with having failed to do jack shit about hundreds of young men in his care getting molested by their team doctor. So they're dusting off their singlets, ready to grapple mano-a-mano with Rod Rosenstein.
(Dear God, please don't force us to look at Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows in wrestling singlets. Thank you. Amen.)
Things were looking bleak for the Treason Caucus. Their all-day Strzokapalooza had not gone well. And that was before Trey Gowdy's alter-ego, a clean-shaven, reasonable adult, escaped from the closet again.

For what? Impeach him for what? No.
I've had my differences with Rod Rosenstein. I talk to him quite often privately, which again is a lot more constructive than the public hearings we have. He's a Trump appointee. So is [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions. So is [FBI Director] Chris Wray. If President Trump is dissatisfied with Rod Rosenstein, he can fire him with a tweet.
WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING HERE?????
Next, Trey Gowdy would like to know when Putin is handing over the 25 Russians the US has indicted.
But then it was back to Gowdy's normal liescape, as he went on to say that he doesn't like public hearings because they are a circus.

We're not senile, you pointy headed little fucker! We were all there for the eleventy million hours of Benghazi hearings.
Okay, that's enough gaslighting for a Monday morning. We'll keep you posted on these lying sumbitches. Bad Gowdy should be back on television calling to waterboard the Justice Department in 3...2...
