Steve Bannon says that President Trump should fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein within the next 72 hours for “clearly obstructing justice if the DOJ doesn’t coughg up all the documents sought by Congressional investigators.

Trump’s former chief strategist told The Hill on Wednesday: “If he doesn’t do it in 72 hours, he’s fired. I’d fire him.”

House conservatives threatened to impeach Rosenstein last week, only to walk back the threat days later after Speaker Paul Ryan came out against it, and Freedom Caucus co-founder Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) announced a bid to replace Ryan after the speakership opens up due to Ryan retiring after this year.

Bannon, a controversial figure who left the White House a year ago and was derided by Trump after the publication of Michael Wolff’s exposé “Fire and Fury,” insisted that there would eventually be a commission set up to look at anti-Trump malfeasance by intelligence agencies during the initial investigations into ties between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign.

The president’s allies have long alleged that the investigation has been marked by bias, pointing to examples such as text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. -The Hill

Bannon’s call to remove Rosenstein should not be confused with efforts to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller – a suggestion tweeted by President Trump on Wednesday when he said “This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”

Trump may have been referring to Mueller’s longstanding friendship with fired FBI Director James Comey. As radio host Mark Levin noted last June:

John Legato is a former deep cover FBI special agent – and he writes that Comey and Mueller -their families have vacationed together, have had picnics together, hours spent at the office together, had a few cocktails after work. So Mueller can’t possibly be impartial here. Not when he’s very close friends with a key witness.

The point is this – he’s not independent
