House Conservatives Wish To Politicize Justice–House Speaker Ryan Pushes Back

July 26, 2018

Bad news all the way around for those who wish to undermine law and order—and politicize justice.
 
Speaker Paul Ryan dismissed a push by House conservatives to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
 
The Wisconsin Republican said the Department of Justice was largely complying with the GOP demand for documents surrounding the FBI’s Russia investigation.
 
“I don’t think we should be cavalier with this process or this term,” he said of impeachment. “I don’t think this rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors.”
 
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday threw his support behind Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was recently targeted by conservative Republicans in Congress moving to impeach him over his handling of the Russia investigation.
 
“Rod Rosenstein is highly capable. . . . I have the highest confidence in him,’’ Sessions said in Boston.
Senior Justice Department officials have rejected the criticism of House conservatives and described historic levels of cooperation with Congress to share files connected to the FBI investigations of Hillary Clinton’s email server and Trump campaign contacts with Russia
