Trump sides with conservatives against DOJ and ‘rigged’ legal system

President Trump backed up conservative House Republicans who have drafted articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, tweeting that the U.S. legal system is “rigged.” Trump repeated the conservative Republicans’ complaint that the Justice Department is refusing to turn over documents requested by Congress. “At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!” Trump tweeted. Trump has directed harsh criticism at Rosenstein, who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller and by law is the one who could fire Mueller and shut down his investigation into Russian election meddling.
