House Freedom Caucus members filed Articles of Impeachment against
Deputy AG Rod #Rosenstein ("Mueller's boss") claiming he hasn't been responsive to their demands for documents regarding the #Mueller investigation.

What does it mean & what do we do? 1/5…
The Articles of Impeachment against Rosenstein have been filed in a parliamentary "end run" around leadership and do not have the support of @SpeakerRyan or @TGowdySC.

No vote is expected anytime soon and it is highly unlikely the House would approve them anyways. 2/5
Since the Articles of Impeachment are almost certain to fail, it is likely they are being filed to give Trump a PRETEXT to fire Rosenstein.

Firing Rosenstein would let Trump replace him with a loyalist who could sharply curtail Mueller's investigation or even fire Mueller. 3/5
This isn't the 1st time House Republicans have gone after Rosenstein.

@Demwrite wrote a piece for LO in January explaining Republicans' efforts then, which centered around the Russian-bot aided #ReleaseTheMemo campaign.

'Documents' are the new memo. 4/5…
If Trump fires Rosenstein, it crosses a RED LINE & represents extreme danger to #Mueller's probe.

It will AUTOMATICALLY trigger the rapid action protests.

It's CRITICAL you sign up for the protests at the link & be prepared to march shortly. 5/5
Bonus: The articles filed today make no sense from a timing perspective.

Per @RVAwonk, the House Freedom Caucus filed articles of impeachment based on events that occurred before Rosenstein was even sworn in.

HFC is being disingenuous, to say the least.
