Rosenstein Impeachment Threat is a Reckless and Dangerous Stunt​

Statement by Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn

WASHINGTON - “This effort to silence Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is a reckless attempt to obstruct and interfere with a legitimate investigation of an attack on our democracy by a hostile foreign power. This shameful stunt by Members of Congress putting their party before their country should be torpedoed quickly by their colleagues.

US intelligence agencies have determined that the Russian government and its agents attacked the 2016 election in an effort to elect Donald Trump to the White House. The investigation by Special Counsel Mueller under the supervision of Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein has led to numerous indictments and guilty pleas stemming from those attacks.

Americans are watching how Congress will respond to this attack on the rule of law in our nation. They will take careful note of which Members of Congress will put their country before their party and they will remember on Election Day.”
