DiGenova - Rosenstein Deserves It (Still Report)

Sara Carter and Joe DiGenova went on Hannity tonight and explained why 11 Representatives filed Articles of Impeachment against Rod Rosenstein.
Why Articles of Impeachment instead of a preliminary step which would be holding Rosenstein in contempt of Congress? Because Rosenstein would just ignore it, then it would come down to having to vote on whether or not to have the U.S. Marshalls arrest him. But then what - go through the impeachment process? So let’s just skip the useless step then, and go right to the heart of the matter. 
Because face it, as long as Rosenstein remains in office, justice will never be served on the dozens of former government bureaucrats where there is clear evidence of criminality. So let’s get rid of him and impeachment – upon conviction – makes it impossible for the convictee to serve in government.
So what is impeachment? Impeachment was created to boot lawyers in government service out of government service – be they elected officials or bureaucrats – because lawyers know how to skirt criminality – or the prosecution of criminality - by using their knowledge of the law, and connections in the bureaucracy to get away with things that are clearly wrong and that normal citizens would be prosecuted for. 
If criminality can be proven, then the remedy is not impeachment – the remedy is a grand jury indictment, followed by a trial before a jury of peers. But when gross mismanagement is the issue, or stonewalling, or threatening the very committee of Congress charged with overseeing this conduct, then that falls short of indictment, but it’s clearly wrong and unjust, and therefore squarely falls within the confines of the role impeachment was created to serve..
