Thursday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took a contrarian position to most of the conservative political commentators in the media and made the case that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should be impeached.
Levin reviewed the facts and the actions Rosenstein has taken since his appointment by President Donald Trump to the number two position in the Department of Justice. He argued that Congress, the most powerful branch of government, the branch with oversight power, has a constitutional duty to exercise that power over the other two branches when circumstances demand action. If Congress waited around for Trump to fire Rosenstein, Levin explained, the Democrats and the media would demand that Trump be impeached for firing Rosenstein.
"Congress has an independent responsibility," Levin said. "Congress doesn't have to wait for a president or encourage a president. Congress has an independent responsibility — to get to the bottom of it and fix it!"
"Sometimes you actually have to make the case to the American people — win, lose, or draw!" Levin said. "Sometimes you have to stand up for the Constitution and the rule of law — win, lose or draw!"
"So let me be the one who says that Mr. Rosenstein should be impeached, but apparently won't be impeached, because it's been walked back," Levin added. "They cannot get enough votes, apparently, within the Republican caucus. And so now we just leave it to Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller to determine the fate of the nation."
