House Republicans have drawn up impeachment documents against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein —and could file the papers as soon as Monday.
The NYPost reports,
Conservative Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) are furious at what they see as Rosenstein’s foot-dragging as they probe alleged anti-Trump bias at the FBI — and unconvinced by the Friday indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officers for interference in the 2016 election.
But Speaker Paul Ryan, who has been reluctant to join the conservatives’ blistering criticism of Rosenstein, could block the measure.
Only eight people in Congress’ 229-year history have been impeached, found guilty by the Senate, and removed from office.
