Could the House of Representatives finally have had enough with the stalling of the Department of Justice in complying with requests for documents?
Republicans are also disturbed at the revelation of bias and poor actions which were confirmed in the IG report.
They have been threatening action for some time for the DOJ’s stonewalling and failure to turn over documents.
Here is more from Biz Pac Review:
Two House Republicans are seeking to file impeachment documents against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as early as Monday, according to Capitol Hill sources who spoke with Politico.
Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, both members of the House Freedom Caucus, take issue with both the deputy attorney general’s poor handling of the Russia investigation and his lack of transparency.
Rosenstein, who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller’s scandal-plagued probe into alleged Russian collusion and was the official who named the FBI veteran to lead the probe last year, has repeatedly stonewalled requests from congressional Republicans for access to documents pertaining to the investigation.
Politico’s sources confirmed that Meadows was seen on the House floor with Rosenstein’s impeachment documents Friday afternoon at the same time that the deputy attorney general was announcing new indictments in Mueller’s case.
“It has not been filed today,” Meadows spokesman said to Politico, though he reportedly didn’t rule out the possibility of the documents being filed as early as new week.
Even Rosenstein’s announcement of indictments against 12 Russian operatives was seen as sketchy by some, given as its timing coincided with President Donald Trump’s historic meeting with Queen Elizabeth.
