House Freedom Caucus Leader Mark Meadows says it’s time for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to go.
Rosenstein has been in the hot seat in recent weeks after he reportedly plotted to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump. Rosenstein also wanted to secretly record Trump.
According to The Hill:
“I think at this particular point, Rod Rosenstien’s priorities are misplaced. His unwillingness to come before Congress and allow us to conduct proper congressional oversight, along with the other information that we’ve learned over the last week or so, would indicate that Rod Rosentein has not displayed the candor of which would support one’s theory of actually believing that he has been open and honest in all regards,” Meadows told reporters.
“So with that, I think that it’s time that Rod Rosenstein steps down. He should do so immediately and in doing that, I think it would serve the country well, it would serve this president well,” he added. The comments marked Meadows’s most explicit call yet for Rosenstein’s resignation.”
