The Wall Street Journal: Conservative House bid to impeach Rod Rosenstein fizzles

House conservatives’ bid to oust Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein amid a fight over the Russia investigation lost steam Thursday when top Republicans rejected the move, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging Congress to focus on other priorities.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he doesn’t support the articles of impeachment that 11 lawmakers filed Wednesday after a monthslong tug of war with the Justice Department over information related to investigations involving Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump.

“I don’t think we should be cavalier with this process or with this term,” Ryan said, referring to impeachment. He said House Republicans have received a “great deal” of cooperation from the department on their records requests.
