(CNSNews.com) -- On Wednesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) issued a tweet calling Rep. Mark Meadows’ (R-N.C.) resolution to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “partisan nonsense” that’s “dangerous for the rule of law.”
“There are no grounds for House Republicans to impeach Rod Rosenstein,” Feinstein claimed. “Trying to remove him for failing to disclose sources, methods and evidence from a criminal investigation is beyond the pale,” she said, adding that the attempt to remove Rosenstein “needs to stop.”
Rep. Meadows stated on Twitter yesterday that the Department of Justice had “continued to hide information from Congress and repeatedly obstructed oversight--even defying multiple congressional subpoenas. We have had enough.”
Congressional GOP frustrations with Deputy AG Rosenstein and the Russia investigation have intensified since last June’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, in which both Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray drew sharp criticism for purportedly failing to provide oversight documents requested by lawmakers.
