Rep. Mark Meadows told reporters Wednesday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “absolutely … should be held in contempt” for not complying with a subpoena from House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes.
“Really at this particular point, it’s members of Congress who have a bigger problem with Rod Rosenstein [than the president],” Meadows said in response to a question about POTUS possibly firing the deputy AG. “Myself included.”
“He is not giving us the documents, and he is not doing his job,” he continued. “If he is not going to do the job, he needs to go and find one that he will do, and so the frustration with the AG and the deputy AG is probably more of a focus of Congress, and it probably makes the president’s dissatisfaction pale in comparison.” (RELATED: Jim Jordan – Sessions, Rosenstein ‘Need To Be Held Accountable’)
“They have not complied with the subpoena. They should be held in contempt if they can’t get it right.”
Meadows added that impeaching FBI Director Christopher Wray — an idea first floated by Nunes — is “in the tool box.”
“Hopefully they will comply long before we have to go that route, but it is in the tool box that we have there. Certainly contempt of Congress is the first step.”
