House Republicans move to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

House Republicans have criticised Rod Rosenstein for not being responsive enough as they have requested documents

Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), along with nine co-sponsors, introduced the articles shortly after a meeting with DOJ officials concerning document production.

The House of Representatives departed on Thursday for a five-week recess after Mr Ryan declined to schedule a vote on the bill. The men, allies of President Trump, are accusing Rosenstein of withholding information about the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation from Congress, amid other misconduct.

"It's an uptick in their fabulously irresponsible effort to damage the critical institutions of this country in favor of defending the president", Himes, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said.

The Department of Justice, under the supervision of Mr. Rosenstein, redacted the names of high-ranking Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, such as former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. "That just helps the Democrats who are trying to impeach President Trump". "We do not have full compliance and we have to get full compliance, but we've been making tremendous progress to that point".

Rosenstein has overseen the Russia investigation since past year, when Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the probe following reports of his meeting with the Russian ambassador. Were the articles of impeachment to pass with a majority in the House, the Senate would have to vote with a two-thirds majority to convict after a House-conducted trial.

Dershowitz said therefore, there is no case to be made for impeaching Rosenstein.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended Rosenstein at an appearance in Boston on Thursday, Reuters reports.

The most substantial effort has surrounded roughly 880,000 pages of documents related to the Justice Department inspector general's investigation into how the FBI handled the Clinton probe. In addition to stonewalling the GOP subpoenas, the impeachment resolution faulted Rosenstein for signing one of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant renewals on Carter Page, and refusing to turn over scoping memo.

"It really will backfire", he concluded, predicting the House will immediately bring articles of impeachment against the president if they are victorious in November.

And when House lawmakers return to Washington in September - roughly 60 days before the November elections - there will be little appetite among rank-and-file Republicans for contentious votes on impeachment or contempt of Congress, some Republicans say. "No, I do not", the Wisconsin lawmaker said.

The Justice Department said it had no comment. "And we look at all the various tools that we have available, including having the kinds of dialogues we've been having recently in order to get compliance from DOJ".

So far, the special counsel has charged 32 people and three companies.

Facebook (FB) Stock Sinks as Revenue Misses Expectations
Shares tumbled 20 percent subsequent to the company reporting its second-quarter earnings - after the market closed. Facebook's monthly active users number was still up 11% year-over-year.

Meadows claimed Rosenstein has "made every effort to obstruct legitimate attempts of congressional oversight" since taking charge of the Department of Justice. All 11 lawmakers who filed the resolution are members of the caucus.
