(CNN) House Freedom Caucus leaders Reps. Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan on Wednesday escalated their fight with the Justice Department, introducing a resolution to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The resolution is not a sign that the House is about to vote to impeach Rosenstein, as House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy — who have been pushing for documents from the Justice Department — did not sign on. The House is also leaving for a monthlong recess after Thursday.
#DraintheSwamp – @RepDeSantis: House Republicans would vote to hold Rod Rosenstein in contempt of Congress. We have got to do it this week. Now is the time. End the stonewalling. #MAGA #TrumpTrain #Dobbs pic.twitter.com/iKWKii5N0K
