(National Sentinel)Â Showdown: The walls are closing in on special counsel Robert Mueller’s bogus Russian collusion investigation along with the man who appointed him against Justice Department rules: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.
House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., is demanding important documents relative to the hoax collusion allegations from Rosenstein because he knows that the DoJ — outside of Inspector General Michael Horowitz — can’t andÂ won’t investigate itself.
Meadows, in a tweet, praised President Donald J. Trump’s demand that the Justice Department investigate allegations that the Obama regime launched a spying operation against him and his 2016 campaign.
But he also said he doesn’t believe the DoJ can or will satisfactorily investigate itself, and as such Congress, in its oversight role, needed to be involved.
“This is the right call from @realDonaldTrumpâ€“weâ€™ve seen disturbing evidence that the FBI engaged in political targeting,” he tweeted, adding: “But the DOJ canâ€™t be trusted to investigate themselvesâ€“Congress needs the documents too. Rod Rosenstein: where are the documents? Show Americans the truth.”

This comes on the heels of a letter sent to the president last week by Meadows and fellow Freedom Caucus members Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., asking him to use his authority to order the Justice Department to hand over documents relative to their ongoing probes of FBI and DoJ corruption during the Obama presidency.
“In the year that has passed since these commitments were made, the Department of Justice has failed to fully comply with regular and repeated Congressional requests and subpoenas. Our power as Congress to conduct investigations is broad, inherent and mandated by the Constitution. As a separate and equal branch of government, we have a constitutional right to these documents,â€ Meadows said in his letter.
He is seeking documents specifically related to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court applications — at least three of which were granted to put members of Trump’s 2016 campaign under surveillance.
Meadows and the others are also demanding the unredacted August 2nd memo penned by Rosenstein detailing Muellerâ€™s scope.
We believe that Horowitz is an honest broker in all of this and his upcoming report will be extremely damning to the Deep State. But we also believe in Congress’ legitimate oversight role as yet another check and balance against abuses of power, which clearly have occurred.
