The Wall Street Journal: Trump’s House allies file resolution to impeach Rod Rosenstein

House conservatives Wednesday night took the first step toward removing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein from office, marking a dramatic escalation in a dispute over lawmakers’ requests for information about the government’s most politically charged probes.

Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, along with nine co-sponsors, filed articles of impeachment against Rosenstein in the House. The move comes after a tense, monthslong tug of war over the Justice Department’s production of documents and information related to investigations involving Hillary Clinton and President Trump.

Meadows and other congressional Republicans who are close allies of Trump say the push for more information is part of routine oversight of federal law enforcement.
