House Republicans Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Rosenstein

Conservative lawmakers on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, The Washington Post reports. The effort was led by Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who are leaders of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. All 11 lawmakers who filed the resolution are members of the group. House Republicans have long been critical of the deputy attorney general, accusing him of withholding documents and being insufficiently transparent in his handling of the Russia probe led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Tennessee Republican congressman Scott DesJarlais co-sponsored the impeachment resolution.
