Popular Republican Rep. Jim Jordan told radio host John Catsimatidis on Sunday that if Rod Rosenstein does not deliver the subpoenaed documents to Congress then he will push for an impeachment vote.
Rod Rosenstein has failed to deliver subpoenaed documents to Congressional investigators since Trump became president.
The Obama DOJ and FBI, including Rod Rosenstein, spied on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
The Hill reported:
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said on Sunday that if the Department of Justice (DOJ) doesn’t hand over documents that Congress has requested, he and other lawmakers will force a vote on the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“If they don’t give us the information that we, as a separate and equal branch of government are entitled to have in order to get answers for the American people, then we will actually call to vote for the impeachment of Rod Rosenstein,” Jordan told radio host John Catsimatidis in an interview on AM 970 in New York.
Jordan and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), leaders in the House Freedom Caucus, led a group of conservative lawmakers in filing articles of impeachment against Rosenstein on Wednesday.
Meadows backed off on that effort one day later following a series of talks with GOP leaders, who largely oppose Rosenstein’s impeachment.
