Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on Sunday stood by his efforts to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, despite criticism from top lawmakers including House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and commentators like famed legal professor Alan Dershowitz.
“If they don’t give us the documents, if they don’t give us 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 the vote for the impeachment of Rod Rosenstein,” Jordan said during an interview with John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” that aired Sunday on New York radio station AM 970.
Jordan and his House Freedom Caucus colleague Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., announced on Wednesday that they had filed a resolution with nine other members of Congress to impeach Rosenstein, claiming the Justice Department’s No. 2 had hindered congressional oversight of special counsel Robert Mueller’s federal Russia investigation.
Ryan said he opposes impeaching Rosenstein, but Meadows has threatened to go around the speaker if the GOP leader won’t allow a floor vote on the resolution. However, any action on impeachment will have to wait as House lawmakers are on August recess.
