Wednesday night, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” and announced that Congress is prepared to pass a resolution demanding that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hand over requested documents related to the FBI investigation into Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election.
“If they don’t give us the documents, we are going to pass a resolution on the House floor, the speaker’s been clear about this —” Jordan said.
“How soon?” Hannity asked, interrupting.
“It’ll happen next week if they don’t do it,” Jordan answered. “The speaker has been clear. We will pass that, and the whole House will go on record saying, ‘Mr. Rosenstein, give us what we’re entitled to have to get answers for the American people.’ And then if he still doesn’t do that, then it’s contempt.”
Jordan added that if Rosenstein still refuses to cooperate should Congress hold him in contempt, then the “ultimate” recourse for Congress would be to impeach the deputy attorney general.
