Reports say that Republicans are officially filing to impeach Rosenstein. There are a few who disagree with this notion but, very few.
According to Fox News, Republican House members could be days away from the release of article of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, sources told Fox News on Monday.
Sources said there could be two separate resolutions to impeach Rosenstein but there is hope among some members of Congress to vote on the issue prior to the House’s August recess.
The deputy attorney general oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and fellow U.S. House conservatives appear poised to force a floor vote on impeaching U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is supervising special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Dispatch reported.
At a gathering Tuesday of conservative Republicans on Capitol Hill, Jordan, R-Urbana, said “all options are on the table,” contending Rosenstein has declined to provide a House panel with thousands of pages of documents related to the FBI investigation into the private e-mails of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
but not everyone agrees with the majority, says The Hill:
“Impeach him for what?” Gowdy said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “No.”
“I’m not convinced there is a movement,” Gowdy added, citing Politico’s recent report that a group of GOP lawmakers are preparing to impeach Rosenstein.
Conservatives frustrated with special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election have long targeted Rosenstein. Some lawmakers claim he has delayed their investigation into FBI agents involved in Mueller’s investigation who they feel are biased against President Trump.
