Government at its finest

Act 732 of the melodrama:

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.

They used to be the lawnorder party, but now they’re the party of protect the sleazy corrupt rapey gangster from Queens from the FBI and law enforcement in general.

Meadows and Jordan are leaders of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, a bloc whose members have been among the most persistent critics of Rosenstein.

Because they’re to the right of everything. They’re the right wing of the right-wing Republicans, who are to the right of nearly everybody else on the planet. They’re so far to the right they’re coming back via the other side. Fire all the Attorneys General! Get rid of the investigators and prosecutors! Turn them all loose!

Not the peasants though. The Freedom Caucus doesn’t want them to have freedom. Life in prison for smoking a joint is good enough for them.
