RELEASE:
Rep. Meadows Calls on Rod Rosenstein to Resign

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement:

“Repeatedly over the last several months, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has not cooperated with Congressional oversight attempts and failed to be transparent about his conduct. Even as he declines to show up before Congress last week and answer questions, he makes plenty of time for media interviews in the same breath.

Even more importantly, based on further information we've learned over the last week, it’s also clear Mr. Rosenstein has shown a lack of candor in the way he characterized his involvement in a number of events to Congressional investigators. Repeatedly, he has declined opportunities to come before Congress and tell the truth.

Mr. Rosenstein’s actions speak for themselves. He has made his priorities clear—and it seems transparency isn't one of them. Based on this, Mr. Rosenstein should resign immediately.”
