According to a report in Politico, Republican lawmakers are planning to finally take action against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after months of scathing critiques and castigation. . .
The deputy attorney general made headlines Friday even as Republicans were planning to begin the process to oust him, when he announced new indictments against numerous Russian officers for interfering in the 2016 U.S. election. . .
President Donald Trump and his allies have excoriated Rosenstein because he refuses to rein in the investigation into Russian election interference and alleged collusion. As the second in line in power behind Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the investigation falls under Rosenstein’s supervision after Sessions recused himself. . .
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) tore into Sessions when he defended Rosenstein from accusations that he threatened Republican members of Congress and staff with subpoena of their emails and other documents.
“For the attorney general to say he’s confident that Rod Rosenstein did everything right,” Meadows angrily said on Fox News, “well, I’m confident he doesn’t know what he’s talking about!” (Read more from “Republicans Are Finally Taking Action Against Rod Rosenstein – Here’s What They Plan” HERE)
