The Deep State thought their perfect plan was in place.
Key loyalists would obstruct and cover up evidence that would block any investigation into the real scandal – the scheme to frame Trump for collusion with Russia and remove him from office.
But that all ended when Trump sent the Deep State running for the hills with this tweet.
Congressman Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan – two of the leading members of the House Freedom Caucus and pro-Trump stalwarts – requested that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein provide them the unredacted version of the memo he wrote authorizing the Mueller probe.
Rosenstein’s memo is the subject of controversy because he violated Justice Department guidelines by not citing a specific crime Mueller was being appointed to investigate.
Meadows and Jordan were asserting their Article I power of oversight in requesting the document.
Rosenstein proved his loyalty was to the Deep State – and not the Constitution – when he shot down their request.
That led to Trump stepping up on twitter and announcing that the day is coming when he will exercise his powers as President under Article II of the Constitution to order Rosenstein to comply with Congress or clean house.
A Rigged System – They don’t want to turn over Documents to Congress. What are they afraid of? Why so much redacting? Why such unequal “justice?” At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!

Rosenstein is a key figure in this silent coup to remove President Trump.
Even though he was appointed by Trump, he has proven his allegiance is to the swamp.
Rosenstein could reel in Mueller’s expansive fishing expedition.
But instead of doing his job and providing a check on an out-of-control prosecutor, Rosenstein has permitted Mueller to expand his investigation into Trump’s thoughts about Mueller being appointed and certain tweets Trump composed.
Rosenstein has remained on the job because Trump has stayed out of Justice Department matters while the Mueller investigation is ongoing.
He knows the swamp is trying to bait him into firing either Mueller or Rosenstein so Congress can spring the impeachment trap.
Trump has wisely resisted this effort.
But eventually Trump will make his move.
The President and his supporters will not sit idly by while Deep State operatives and members of the swamp try to nullify the results of the 2016 election.
Trump’s tweet makes it clear – the clock is ticking on the Deep State.
