Rod Rosenstein’s Getting Pressure From Another Quarter Now — Congress

Two of President Trump’s backers in Congress have threatened Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general running the Russia investigation, with impeachment or contempt of Congress if he did not give them documents they want, according to the Washington Post.

Rosenstein met Monday with Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Ohio, both Republican congressmen, in his office. They pressed him for more information about the conduct of the Russia probe and the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server.

Rosenstein, a Bush-appointed attorney general of the state of Maryland, is in Trump’s crosshairs because, due to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal, he is running the investigation into the role Russia played in the Trump campaign. The president has publicly mused about firing him.
