Conservative GOP lawmakers are reportedly preparing a push to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after he unveiled indictments of 12 Russian intelligence officers on Friday for the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee, Politico reported Friday.
Sources told the publication that House Freedom Caucus leaders Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have been preparing for weeks to impeach Rosenstein over allegations that he’s held up their investigation into FBI agents who some lawmakers say are biased against President Trump.
The impeachment document could be filed as soon as Monday, according to Politico.
A spokesman for Meadows declined to rule out if it would be filed next week, Politico reported.
The report comes on the same day that Rosenstein, who is overseeing the probe after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, announced charges against 12 Russian intelligence officials for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee.
