‘A Rigged System’

Trump Threatens to ‘Get Involved’ and Fire Rosenstein

President Donald Trump tweeted that he may have to “get involved” Wednesday morning, after the House Freedom Caucus drafted articles of impeachment for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The Washington Post reported the draft articles were created after disputes with Rosenstein over Congress’ attempts to obtain documents from the Justice Department related to FBI surveillance of the Trump campaign. “A Rigged System - They don’t want to turn over Documents to Congress. What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal “justice?” Trump tweeted. “At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!” Rosenstein responded to the draft articles Tuesday evening, saying threats against him have been made for some time now and the “Department of Justice is not going to be extorted.”
