An unnamed lawmaker has drafted the articles of impeachment against Rod Rosenstein. Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted out the announcement on Friday. He wasn’t able to learn if they have gone to the proper committee yet.
They may be holding onto the document for now as rumors say Rosenstein is about to get fired, making impeachment a moot point.
“Fox has learned that articles of impeachment have been drafted for Rosenstein..though not filed. It is not clear which lawmaker drafted the articles…or if they would go anywhere in cmte or on the flr”

In those conversations, he has repeated the phrase, “Here I stand,” a reference to Martin Luther’s famous quote, “Here I stand, I can do no other.” Coincidentally, former FBI Director James Comey, whom Rosenstein fired, repeated the same phrase to President George W. Bush in a conversation that has been widely reported and that Comey describes in his forthcoming book.
One source who spoke to Rosenstein said he seemed fully aware he may soon lose his job and was at peace with the possibility, confident he had done his job with integrity.
Rosenstein has said in recent private conversations that history will prove he did the right thing by firing Comey in May 2017, claiming that the American people do not have all the facts about what led to his decision to write the memo that led to Comey’s dismissal, the sources said.

Rosenstein has been under fire for appointing Robert Mueller to head the Hillary dossier witch hunt.
He has also been slow-walking material subpoenaed by Congress and rumor is that it’s not if he gets fired but when.
