“Frankly it’s mind-boggling that [the] Justice [Department] won’t comply,” Mr. Scalise, Louisiana Republican, said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”
Republican lawmakers introduced articles of impeachment against Mr. Rosenstein on Wednesday after threatening to do so for weeks. They argue that the Justice Department official is keeping information hidden from Congress despite multiple requests for documents.
Mr. Scalise said the impeachment proceedings may not necessarily go through, but that ultimately depends on if Mr. Rosenstein delivers more documents. The articles introduced should be seen as yet another tool to get information from the Justice Department, he said.
