Trump's attack dog Mark Meadows gunning for Rosenstein

The very definition of a traitor:

House Republicans plan to privately question the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, about discussions last year where he suggested secretly taping President Trump to expose a chaotic White House and removing him from office under the 25th Amendment.

Representative Mark Meadows, Republican of North Carolina and a close ally of Mr. Trump’s, said that if Mr. Rosenstein does not comply with their latest request, he will be subpoenaed to appear before lawmakers.

It's important to understand the gravity of what Meadows and others are attempting to do. They're not just defending Trump against an adversary (Mueller), they are putting our national security at risk by trying to undermine an investigation into a foreign (super)power's efforts to manipulate not only our elections, but also our foreign policy. We have been compromised, repeatedly, and because of Trump's many (many) intellectual shortfalls, and Congress' inability and/or unwillingness to balance that, the only defense we have against these attacks is the Mueller probe. We need to stop calling Meadows' little cabal the "Freedom Caucus," and start calling them what they are, the "Happy To Be Ruled By Russia Caucus":

The meeting was the latest episode in a protracted feud between Mr. Rosenstein and a group of House Republicans loyal to Mr. Trump, who have long assailed the deputy attorney general as uncooperative with their efforts to conduct oversight of the Justice Department. Democrats have accused the Republicans of targeting Mr. Rosenstein because he oversees the special counsel investigation and forcing him to accede to onerous congressional demands.

In July, Mr. Meadows and 10 other House Republicans introduced articles of impeachment to force out Mr. Rosenstein, a long-shot bid that would require the support of a majority of the House to succeed, followed by a two-thirds majority in the Senate to convict him.

“It’s time to find a new deputy attorney general who is serious about accountability and transparency,” Mr. Meadows said at the time.

And that was before news about Rod Rosenstein's alleged comments about recording Trump and possibly invoking the 25th Amendment hit the pages. In other words, it ain't about Rosenstein, it's about clearing the way to get rid of Mueller. Who has already secured 32 indictments or guilty pleas from those attempting to suborn or corrupt our government. It boggles the mind that anybody, much less a Congressman, would attempt to stop this much-needed process. But even more mind-boggling is the reality that Meadows' constituents are going to send him back to keep on doing these patently un-American stunts.
