Conservative House members are at a breaking point. According to the Washington Post, Trump allies drafted an impeachment document against Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein.


Rosenstein oversaw the special counsel probe during the Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), called the document, “a last resort option, if the Department of Justice fails to respond. Meadows continued: My frustrations about their inability to respond to simple requests could warrant further action."

President Trump has said that their could be changed coming to the Justice Department. He has referred to the Russia probe as a "witch hunt."

"They have a witch hunt against the president of the United States going on, I’ve taken the position — and I don’t have to take this position, maybe I’ll change — that I will not be involved with the Justice Department," President Trump said.

The draft is not expected to do well in Congress, but can serve as a protective protocol measure. A Justice Department spokesman also declined to comment.

Meadows says he wants action.

“The Department of Justice’s willingness to comply with legitimate requests are more lip service than actual actions,” Meadows said Monday.
